A workshop which encourages people to save and reuse cherished local buildings will be held in Ipswich this month.
Hosted by The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, the BRICK session will focus on church buildings, delivered in partnership with The Churches Conservation Trust.
According to Historic England, as of 2016 there were 17 places of worship at risk in Suffolk and 58 at risk in Norfolk.
Laura Norris, programme director at BRICK, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, said: “In the UK some of our most important buildings, which have the most pertinent links to our local and social history, are our churches.
“Where congregation numbers have fallen many of these buildings are in jeopardy and we have reached a critical point where more and more communities risk losing them forever.”
The day will also include advice and a tour of the venue, Grade-II listed* Quay Place.
The session is on September 27 and runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
