LEAD THEFTS

- TAKE STEPS TO PROTECT YOUR CHURCH


The Church of England’s St Albans Diocese is increasingly concerned about lead thefts from parish churches and  is urging church councils to  

take protective measures by installing roof alarms. Some financial help is currently on offer to the end of 2017. More details here

 

The Beds and Herts Historic Churches Trust is playing its part too by making grants of up to £2,000 available for an alarm, with a possible further £1,000, thanks to help from the Allchurches Trust.

If your church has a metal roof, then you are likely to be vulnerable to theft and need full insurance cover – with grant-aid available, now is the time to install a roof alarm! Without one you may not be properly covered in the event of a claim following theft.
