Heart-warming to know that Belton’s Old School will be brought back to life

Have your say

HOW refreshing it was to read the Journal and see that there could soon be a new lease of life for the Old School in Belton.

the overwhelming majority of Belton residents are in favour of the National Trust-funded plan who of course have an impressive track record of producing totally appropriate restorations – from humble cottages and terraced houses to stately homes across the nation.

We can only hope that the planning application submitted to SKDC will be considered sensibly and sympathetically, particularly as we have seen in recent years so many historic buildings with character bulldozed to make way for featureless, modern monstrosities from which, sadly, someone has made a lot of money.
