The Liverpool Echo has the story – see link above

I have posted before about this historic building so it’s nice to see what looks like a positive outcome to the recent difficulties surrounding its future. My original posting was in 2010 and coincidentally I went to see my old chum (now 93) a couple of days ago, who is mentioned in it, and he reminded me of the incendiary bombs falling on Liverpool that fateful night when St. Lukes was struck. That original posting is at:-

I posted on this historic site a while ago:-

The funding on the table from Liverpool City Council is most welcome and it seems to indicate a change of heart from ‘we have no money, we will not do anything to the building’ approach of not so long ago.
