National Maintenance Week (20-27 November 2020) is the SPAB’s annual reminder to give your home, whether it’s a 1930s semi-detached or a medieval manor, a maintenance check before the winter months.
Alongside resources and top tips for keeping buildings in good condition, SPAB’s National Maintenance Week 2020 includes a number of free online events to help owners and users get to know their old buildings better and take practical action to look after them.
Maintenance Question Time
21 November 2020, 11:00 - 12:00
Live Online Forum
Free - registration required
All buildings, old and new, benefit from regular care, and many maintenance tips are widely applicable. Join the SPAB’s advisers for this interactive introduction to maintenance, which includes an online Q&A and discussion of how to tackle some of the common problems found with old buildings, and how regular care and attention can prevent or reduce them.
The forum is free to attend, but please register your place in advance.
If you would like to send in a question for the forum, please email it, along with your contact details, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Monday 16 November 2020. If you wish, you can include photographs to help the advisers understand and answer your question. Please let us know if you’re happy for your photos to appear on screen during the Q&A.
