Orchard Barn CIC are a Rural Crafts Centre in Suffolk specialising in developing natural and sustainable building skills, e.g. oak timber work, clay rendering, cob walling, traditional hedging etc. We are wondering if any other Community CIC's would like to colloborate on a heritage restoration/conservation project. If you have a local (possibly grant funded) community project to retain local heritage (a period or listed building for example) then we could work with you and provide your members with the traditional skills required to progress your project. Might be an innovative of bringing together CIC's to achieve something of value for the community.
