National Gutters Day

Fri, 27 Nov 2020

#NationalGuttersDay will be on 27th November 2020

The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) 'annual National Maintenance Week campaign reminds anyone who looks after a building - regardless of its age, type or purpose - of the simple, achievable steps they can take to prepare for the worst that winter can bring.'

'Running since 2002, National Maintenance Week always finishes with National Gutters Day, a gentle, light hearted reminder for everyone to spare 10 minutes to make a simple check on the condition of any property they care for. A little time spent on a basic building 'MOT' can save people from having to spend a great deal of money at a later date.'

In 2020 National Maintenance Week will run from 20th - 27th November. #NationalGuttersDay will be on 27th November
