Prince Charles re-opens PLB restoration project

Jamie McCall meets HRH Prince CharlesJamie McCall, Creative Director, PLB hears HRH Prince Charles' views on The Florrie project


A Liverpool heritage interpretation project delivered by Malton firm, PLB, has been officially re-opened this week by the Prince of Wales.

Prince Charles personally requested a tour of Liverpool’s The Florence Institute after hearing about the community-driven project to restore Britain’s first purpose-built boys’ club. The once derelict landmark has now been transformed and returned to full use by the local community and wider audiences.

PLB completed the interpretive design and installation of a new Heritage Resource Centre at ‘The Florrie’ in April 2012. The team’s work formed part of a broader regeneration project which was largely supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund that has helped transformed the building into a sustainable community hub. The Resource Centre was designed to draw in tourists to learn of the building’s historical importance as well as to become the central hub of the community.

Says Jamie McCall at PLB, “Prince Charles’ visit on Monday was a fitting tribute to the hard work and determination of a community to breathe life into the once-treasured building. The new Heritage Resource Centre will help tell The Florence Institute’s remarkable story and engage with local schools and businesses to provide resources surrounding this fascinating piece of Liverpool’s heritage.”
