Heritage led regeneration can make a real difference and the fact that this building is still here and has been lovingly brought back to life is a huge tribute to you all.

I just wanted to say what an enormous pleasure it is to return to the Florrie again.

It is, I think, 6 years since I was last here when I saw this empty sad shell, so you can imagine how thrilled I am to return today and see this building restored, thanks to the unbelievably dedicated work of you all.

To make this building live again and to make it such an inspiration to the community is a remarkable achievement.
