Ruskin Museum Statement
Bluebird Rebuild and future display at the Ruskin Museum
Museum Director Vicky Slowe spoke of Gina's generosity and then said: "Bill has assured us he can get Bluebird fully conserved and reconfigured at no cost to the museum. So our challenge now is to raise a total of £750,000 to build the extension to put Bluebird in. As of March 2008 we have raised a total of £520,000. Work on the construction of the Bluebird Wing extension to the Ruskin Museum is due to start in April this year (2008). Fund raising continues to secure the balance".
More information and pictures will appear here once the Museum extension is under way.
