Civic Saturday January 21 Port Sunlight Village

Civic Saturday – Port Sunlight Village
January 21 2017

 

Many thanks to everyone that came from all corners of merseyside  

Despite the train chaos and icy cold weather, the sharing of ideas was a great success. A special thanks to Lizzie and Tom from the Port Sunlight Village Trust for hosting the event and the wonderful guided tour around Port Sunlight.

Our venue, The Lyceum, is a hidden gem of the Port Sunlight Village, the original village school has beautiful details and marvellous vast windows. We found it similarly inspirational.

Lizzie and Tom show a visitor the original plans for  the Port Sunlight Estate
