|Email item||Print item||
The restoration of the Church façade has got underway in San Lawrenz, which will not only benefit the residents of San Lawrenz, but will also be included in the history of the village and is intended to draw more tourists towards that area of Gozo.
Over the last week the awarded contractor began with the erecting of the scaffolding which will then be in place for the actual works. The European Union will be financing 80% of this project.
Two years ago the Church and the Local Council agreed to submit an application to the European Union to acquire funds for this much needed restoration. In the meantime the necessary permits from MEPA and other entities were acquired. Months later it was announced that the Parish, together with the Local Council were granted the funds.
