BBC 'Restoration Village'

THE BBC's 'Restoration Village' began an new 8 week series on 28 July. Although no Liverpool buildings are featured in the series, an unusual contestant located in the Borders of Scotland, with strong connections to Liverpool, does.

Greenlaw Town Hall was built by the architect John Cunningham in 1829. As you probably know, Cunningham is most famous for his work in Liverpool, where he built the original Philharmonic Hall, the Sailor's Home and many, many other outstanding buildings. Unfortunately, many of Cunningham's buildings have been destroyed, by accident or design, over the years.

We in Greenlaw are desperately trying to preserve the finest remaining example of this marvellous architects work. We are hoping to get as much support as possible from all over the UK for the Scottish heat of 'Restoration Village' which is aired on Friday 18 August 2006 at 9pm. If you have any information that could help the Greenlaw Town Hall Restoration Campain please let them know by emailing them at:-


MERSEYSIDE Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of 43 year old Julie Sweeney, who has been missing from her home on Verdi Street, Seaforth since midnight on Saturday 22 July 2006.

Julie is described as white, 5ft 4ins tall, of medium build with brown eyes and short, brown hair. She has the words 'Mum' and 'Dad' tattooed on her left arm, and the letters 'SS' on her right arm. At the time she was last seen, Julie was wearing a white England football top and a black skirt. She is also thought to frequent Sefton and North Liverpool areas.

Julie, or anyone who may know of her whereabouts, is asked to contact the police on 0151 777 3838, and to quote log no. 556 on 25 July 2006.
