Sheerness Dockyard church visit

20 June, 3-5pm, Sheerness

This site visit by Coniston will provide an overview of a complex restoration project at Sheerness Dockyard Church, at the entrance to the former Royal Dockyard on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent.

The Sheerness Dockyard Preservation Trust is working to repair and transform the church, which was built in the 1820s and  badly damaged by fire in 2001.

The project was awarded a £4.2m grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund in 2019 and in November 2020 work began.

The external listed fabric will be restored, including new windows and replacement of the roof. The interior will be renovated to form an education, leisure and working space including an exhibition area, cafe, offices and meeting rooms.

The completed building will provide affordable business space and associated support for young entrepreneurs starting up new businesses. It will also be a permanent new home for a section of engineer John Rennie’s original model of the dockyard.

People, Cities and Sustainability

23 June, 11am-1pm, Guernsey

AbuBakr Bahaj, professor of sustainable energy at the University of Southampton, will speak at this face-to-face event hosted by CIOB Wessex and Channel Islands.

The aim is to establish a conversation on sustainability and the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs), and link this to what individuals, organisations and cities can do in relation to sustainability and net zero.

The interactive session will cover a brief introduction to the pillars of sustainability and the SDGs, and ask what adjustments/actions we need to address sustainability and the net zero emissions transition.
