The FRH Council member Crispin Truman was invited to speak at a seminar organized on 27 March 2015 by the Czech National Trust, in Kromeriz, Moravia.
While in Czech Republic, Truman visited many religious sites.
At the seminar Truman talked about the wide range of ways volunteers are involved in the work at the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT). He also showed how they are working to widen the audience for historic churches through a much-improved visitor welcome and through innovative uses which open the building up for people of all backgrounds to understand, enjoy and care for.
Speakers from the Czech Republic and Slovakia presented the wide range of projects taking place there. Although there is a much smaller NGO heritage sector than in other countries, there are lots of examples of volunteers saving and conserving churches.
