MEPA has approved the application submitted by Wirt iż-Żejtun for the restoration of the stone statue of St. Gregory which is found in the open space in front of the Old Parish Church of Zejtun.
The works on this statue are planned to start soon and will be completed before the feast of St Gregory, which will be celebrated on the first Wednesday after Easter Sunday. The restoration will involve the cleaning of the stone from deposits, whilst making sure that the patina is retained, re-pointing of open joints and repairs to broken moldings. The works will be carried out by a restoration technician qualified in masonry heritage skills.
At the moment Wirt iż-Żejtun is looking for a sponsor in order to assist us in the expenses involved. Anyone interested in giving some help should contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Wirt iz-Zejtun, the hard-working Rubin and the committee for a splendid effort to secure the restoration. Look forward to see the finished work.
