Europa Nostra, the pan-European federation for heritage, has announced its Restoration Fund Grant Scheme for 2002 and 2003.
The fund makes a single financial contribution to the restoration of privately owned endangered sites of architectural and historic value.
Each year the 20,000 euro (£12,000) grant is awarded to a special field of restoration. The 2002 grant will be for the restoration of a floor of inlaid or patterned wood, stone or scagliola built before 1914. The 2003 grant will be for a monumental fireplace, also built before 1914.
