What is Happening with the Project?
Phase One of the project has been completed, with some small snagging jobs to finalise. Phase One work included;
- Work to the RSPCA Building(33 St James Street) with fitting new shop front and restoring the chimney stack.
- Work on the Pioneer Building with new shop front, new signage, restoring the clock tower and bringing it back into use after more than 50 years
Works to Phase 2 has also been carried out, which has included transforming the REAL building and also 23-31 St James Street. There are still some final bits to finish but already the shops have had excellent feedback.
Phase 3a and 3bworks are nearing completion and the transformation has been outstading. The shops are evolving on a daily basis.
Here is Steve, from Broxton Signs, using the traditional method of hand painting the sign for D&A Gregory & Sons.
