If it’s true people need friends, so do buildings

Historic buildings need an enormous amount of care and maintenance and are a symbol of our heritage They also need champions, people to encourage their use, and promote their existence They are often cared for and managed by volunteers. They receive no government funding and rely heavily on voluntary donations

We need a Friends group to support the Battery Friends are people who want to get involved. This can be a very rewarding task as it lets you to talk about why the Battery is important to you and your community.

People are out there, and many of you would lend a hand or share your skills help secure and protect what we see as our heritage. There are so many skills that exist in our community anything from organising fundraising events or filling in funding applications
