0 The Dome of Home begins restoration work on their Third Heritage Lottery Fund Project

New Brighton’s majestic landmark church, Ss Peter, Paul and St Philomena’s Church, has won second-round funding of £222,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), it was announced today. Thanks to National Lottery players, this project will restore the two beautiful marble side chapels at The Dome of Home.

Several exciting activities have been planned for the project. A team of volunteers have begun preparing a Children’s Audio Tour, with scenarios all based on true events, set in 1940s New Brighton during World War II, and recorded by local drama students from St Marys College, Wallasey Village. This is part of a Heritage Education Pack for primary schools (cross-curricular) and secondary schools for Key Stage 3 History and RE.

Wirral Transport Museum volunteers will provide a vintage bus to help local people and families access The Dome easily and ‘step-into the 1940s’. A ‘Hop-on’ service will operate from designated Merseytravel bus stops along New Brighton promenade on three consecutive Saturdays (26th August, 2nd and 9th September) between 12 noon and 4pm, as part of the Heritage Open Days, to ferry visitors to and from The Dome.
