South Leicestershire MP Alberto Costa recently joined Trustees of the Lutterworth Town Estates Charity to see the ‘exciting’ plans for the new museum in Lutterworth.
Alberto recently visited the construction site for the town’s new purpose-built museum alongside the Chair of the Lutterworth Town Estates Charity, and Harborough District Councillor for Lutterworth, Geraldine Robinson and other trustees.
Alberto said, “It was a real pleasure to recently see the hugely exciting plans for the new purpose-built museum in Lutterworth. Our wonderful, historic market town has a very rich and diverse history that deserves commemoration; from the 14th Century Religious Reformer, John Wycliffe, who first translated the bible from Latin to English, and the father of the modern jet engine, Sir Frank Whittle, Lutterworth has a tremendous amount to be proud of and it’s only right that its history is commemorated accordingly”.
Chair of the Lutterworth Town Estates Charity and Harborough District Councillor, Geraldine Robinson, added, “This is a very exciting new project for Lutterworth and the local community. Moving the museum from our old premises will help bring greater footfall to the town centre and will also help with increasing tourism in the local area. We look forward to seeing the new museum in its finished form, which will no doubt be a big boost for Lutterworth”.
