Please see below. Please consider signing the petition as anything which

will avoid having to pay VAT on bell restoration projects and repairs 
will be a great help. Goodness knows what the VAT rate will end up being 
after the election no matter who wins!

MCA members: Please consider signing this petition: it takes only a 
couple of minutes, via the link below. Relief from VAT on repairs 
(including bell restoration) is a significant help to the finances of 
churches - and in line with what I believe to be the government's 
sensible policy of fostering the '3rd' (ie charity / voluntary) sector.
John Thorp.

Dear PCC treasurers, Church wardens, clergy
You may be aware that the Listed Places of Worship scheme, whereby 
churches can claim a refund of VAT paid on certain repairs, is due to 
end in 2011. Obviously this would affect many churches.

You can help to preserve this scheme by lobbying; please use the link in 
the email below to sign up to the petition.

Thank you.

With best wishes
