The fund was established in 2009, as a partnership between the World Heritage Site Steering Group, Bath and North East Somerset Council and Bath Preservation Trust.
It has 3 aims:
- to initiate and organise minor enhancements to Bath’s heritage.
- To assist and encourage others to undertake such work
- to organise volunteers for the same purpose
To date the fund has organised or participated in 50 schemes totalling over a third of a million pounds, and three structures have been removed from the Council’s Building at Risk register.
Details of the projects are outlined in the second annual newsletter. Ideas for further projects, especially those involving the heritage on which the World Heritage inscription is based, are always welcome.
We are very grateful for the financial support of our partners.
