Stop the Rot

I sat in the Stop the Rot meeting for Councillor Joe Anderson this month, very interesting stuff! This campaign, fronted by the Liverpool Echo and chaired by the Bishop is designed to save certain important historic buildings in the city centre mainly, from being lost, falling down etc. We had a presentation on some of the success stories since the campaign began and also talked about some of the buildings still to be saved. They are doing some good work, it is important that there is a focus on preserving our heritage and I think we gain from having all the interested parties round the table together.

I took the opportunity to mention Deane Road Jewish Cemetery and am pleased to report that the conservation officers and buildings at risk officers from LCC are keen to meet us to discuss how they can support our HLF bid. Watch this space.
