Saturday 28th April 2018 was a big milestone for the Trust, when it officially opened the newly refurbished Foot Buildings to the public. This was a culmination of 10 years of campaigning and two years of renovation in what has been one of the largest capital projects to date undertaken by the Trust.
The result is a rejuvenated “street of light”, supported by the Percentage for Art Scheme, and the refurbishment of three near derelict but important early C19 town houses.
You will now see the Locke’s Café busily serving coffees and food al fresco and Ian and Ruth Rolls displaying their works of art in the gallery of No 4 and families are “living above the shop” in apartments full of period detail and character.
Of course none of this would have been possible without a great deal of support and team work and the generous financial bequests of Mrs Anne Herrod, Mrs Mollie Houston and Mr & Mrs Jack Trotman. We hope that we have created something which fully justifies their faith in the work of the Trust and provides a lasting legacy of which we can all be duly proud.
