LANARK’S Curse of the Church Restorers has struck again, leaving one of the town’s just recently refurbished landmarks looking increasingly shabby.
Despite the fact that it underwent a long and expensive `re-refurbishment’, including a supposedly full weather and pollution-proof resurfacing completed barely a year ago, the Town Steeple is already showing signs of discolouration, parts of it turning decidedly green!
It has now been revealed by one of the town’s councillors that there is a hitch in getting the problem solved because the company which carried out the work has gone out of business.
This would make it the THIRD firm involved in Lanark church restorations to go defunct in the past few years.
For more on this story pick up a copy of the Lanark Gazette, which is in the shops now.
