€1.2 million funding for restoration of Valletta’s St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral

Appeals by the Anglican community in Malta that St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Valletta needs extensive financial aid to carry out restoration works have been answered with a helping hand as a result of restoration funds to be provided from EU funds.

The Parliamentary Secretary for EU Funds Ian Borg said that €1.2 million is to be allocated to the project as part of national heritage and culture, a restoration investment at the heart of Valletta’s touristic and cultural environment.

Dr Borg said this was one of the 21 projects for which EU cultural funds had been applied and an allocation of €20 million apportioned. Another project that also qualified for funding is the St George Fireworks Factory in Qormi for a Malta pyrotechnical centre requiring an investment of €350,000.

Another project is that of the Mtarfa Local Council for the restoration of the landmark Clock Tower and the building of an information centre on Mtarfa’s military history, projects requiring an investment of €600,000.
