from the Daily Post….
LIVERPOOL’S 800th birthday is less than 12 months away.
And culture bosses say they are determined the city’s historic sites will be central to both the 2007 festivities and 2008.
Yesterday it was revealed a slice of £10m government money for Capital of Culture would go towards cleaning up the city’s historic architecture.
Council leader Warren Bradley said: “2008 presents a fantastic opportunity for Liverpool to showcase its unique cultural heritage, but equally our historical monuments and assets need to be in the best possible condition.
