Kerry and Amy spent the day with Ed of Eyedear Productions filming the progress that Robinsons Preservation (Jack and his team) have made..........
With thanks to Ed McCormack for sharing the pictures below.
We visited the 'Hub' and saw the amazing progress Robinsons Preservation have made. They have removed all the waterlogged and mouldy wall plaster to reveal the superb brickwork which we think is in a fantastic condition. They have also made a start removing the severely decayed vinyl floor to uncover the parquet and assess its condition. The emergency holding works will continue for a few more weeks and continue to prepare the building for a period of drying out and ventilation.
We are really pleased with the progress we have made so far in building our audience, gaining support and engaging with the community. Your overwhelming support means so much to us-thank you. Please continue to 'like' our posts, share our updates with your friends, send us your comments and attend our events.

Some of the team spent the day with Edward McCormack and Eddie Cotton of Eyedear Productions filming the progress of the emergency holding works. Thank you to Edward McCormack for sharing these wonderful pictures:
We were excited to spend the day with North End Writers to celebrate National Poetry Day. In honour of the 2014 theme 'Remember' we each read the poem 'It was Long Ago' by Eleanor Farjeon in the grounds of the former Andrew Carnegie Library. The poem was selected because it represents our feelings about the former library building. The first lines of the poem read 'I'll tell you, shall I, something I remember? Something that still means a great deal to me. It was long ago.' We also filmed the readings so stay tuned!
Our Heritage Development Officer took some pictures of the building earlier that day.
One of the members of North End Writers, Liz Fitzpatrick, wrote this wonderful poem for us:
