    Default The Florrie

    £4m lottery cash saves Florrie



    MILLIONS of pounds of lottery cash were today awarded to a building at the heart of the ECHO’s Stop the Rot campaign.

    The Heritage Lottery Fund has agreed a £3.9m grant to help regenerate the Florence Institute in Dingle.

    It will house a 300-seater auditorium, gym, cafe, crèche, social enterprises, library and heritage resource centre, and the observatory will be restored.

    The country’s oldest surviving purpose-built youth club will now be converted into a community facility.

    It was a stunning building in its heyday so I hope they do a good job returning it to its former glory,here's the "Friends of the Florrie" website.
