People interested in Lowestoft’s heritage and particularly the care of old buildings are invited to take part in free conservation training, focusing on the Scores.

Organised by the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust as part of the Making Waves Together partnership, a Building Conservation Training course is due to start on Monday 10 to Friday 14 June (10am - 4pm). The training, which will be held at the Heritage Workshop Centre on Wilde Score, will include practical experience in surveying, recording and traditional building skills, working with professional conservators and stonemasons Medieval Masonry Ltd. Attendees will also have the opportunity to work on the historic Scores.  No previous experience is required just a willingness to learn and to develop skills.

Rachel Harrison, Projects Co-ordinator for the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust said:

“By working with expert organisations, this training will provide local people with a unique opportunity to gain some hands-on experience whilst learning more about history of the Scores and their conservation.”

Making Waves Together is a wider partnership project led jointly by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and East Suffolk Council, funded by the national Great Place Scheme. This sees communities and organisations in both areas work together to boost the cultural offer and drive cultural re-imagination as a way of supporting success in the seaside towns. Great Places has been supported by a grant from Arts Council England and the National Heritage Lottery Fund, supported by Historic England.
