The state of Britain's drainpipes will become a matter of vital importance this week when the first National Gutters' Day is staged. In possibly the least sexiest campaign ever launched, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings has risen to the challenge of trying to turn the public on to the perils of shoddy guttering. With winter approaching, the society is devoting a day of fun-packed activities to the cause on Friday as part of National Maintenance Week. The most high-profile stunt involves getting a beefeater to clear the soakaways of the Tower of London. It isn't the first offbeat campaign run by the society, which earlier this year launched an architectural love poetry competition to raise awareness of its 125th anniversary.
