  1. THI Events

    The success of the THI will depend in part on investing in people’s confidence and community pride. The THI will be an opportunity to raise awareness of the needs of the area’s heritage, and the benefits of conservation-led regeneration. We intend to organise activities and events that the community can take part in to learn more about and enjoy their local heritage, and how to care for it.
