We needs as many people as possible to sign the petition to extend the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme – please click on the link and follow the simple instructions to add your voice to the petition. This is currently the ONLY bit of financial support that the Government gives to Cathedrals, so it’s vital that we try to persuade them to retain it. Rochester Cathedral has received £49,000 of support from this scheme since 2007, so it’s vital for us.
Petition to save the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme
This major source of funding is due to end on 31st March 2011. The Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme (LPWGS) enables listed places of worship to claim back 100% of VAT incurred on repairs and maintenance to the building, professional fees and repair works to fixtures such as bells and organs.
To support the campaign to extend the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme, beyond March 2011 sign the petition. It will only take you a minute and could help us massively!
