Warwick District Council will meet a crucial stage in the £1.2 million (Heritage Lottery Funded) restoration of Leamington’s Pump Room Gardens later this year, with the start of the renovation of the iconic Victorian bandstand.
Prior to the renovation starting, the council will be carrying out some precautionary works to the structure, which will require the bandstand to be screened and fenced off from 21 to 25 August. The rest of the gardens will remain fully accessible to the public.
Warwick District Council’s portfolio holder for Green Spaces Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger commented:
“Everyone involved in this project is eagerly anticipating the restoration of the bandstand, as a focal point for events in the gardens. We hope that the public will appreciate the meticulous work which will need to be undertaken to bring it back to its former glory.”
