Charity Day

With a combination of tight budgets and grants being cut, many historical buildings are not getting the attention they need, in view of this the staff at Lanstone Conservation felt compelled to help and are looking to dedicate a whole day to providing general maintenance and stonework for a Church or similar historical building or site.
