e the work is undertaken to a high standard.

Our first training session was run by Craig Frew of Frew Conservation in September and was held at Megginch Estate, near Errol.  The trainees were given thorough training in lime mortar repair and rebuilding a typical historic boundary wall. The next stage for the project team is to learn from this training in advance of the opportunities next spring summer. If you have a group who might be interested in getting involved please get in touch.
