Arch D Gates Update

Present for the installation of our new gates are -  from left to right;  Furness College tutor Mike Walsh, art and design student Heather Stephenson and our project coordinator Graham Bromley.
This follows our partnership work with Mike and the art and the design students in which we provided a "real life" design brief, asking if the students could produce realistic and feasible design options for enhancements to the basic gates. Heathers design for enhancing the gates was chosen by our committee and following a successful funding application from the Sir John Fisher Foundation we were able to commission local Company Gilmour Fabrications Ltd to manufacture and install the gates.

An article about the gates and the excellent work of the Furness College students can be viewed on the North West Evening Mail website here.
