Cllr. Mike Booth (Sefton Cabinet Member for Leisure) and I were today treated to a behind the scenes look at the work going on behind the hoardings. Turning the Art Gallery, Museum and Library into a modern Cultural Centre is a huge undertaking especially as parts of the buildings are ‘Listed’.
The work so far is impressive and some old, long forgotten parts of the buildings have been uncovered as the work has progressed but the state of the roof, which we walked on today, makes you realise how desperately needed this massive project is.
There is a long way to go before the buildings are open to the public again but I hope that when we get there we will have a Centre of regional significance. My thanks to all involved, in what has become a hugely complex project for all their hard work to date, as Cabinet Member responsible for the development
