A PROMINENT councillor has spoken about the work being undertaken to boost an East Staffordshire arts hub.
Bernard Peters, who represents Brizlincote Valley on East Staffordshire Borough Council, contacted the Mail to talk about the 'good work' being done to improve the Brewhouse, in Union Street.
Councillor Peters was one of those spearheading proposals that are being put in place and have seen management from the successful Quad facility, in Derby, take a close look at the running of the site in a bid to boost what it has to offer.
He said: "News of new facilities and new shows at the Brewhouse clearly demonstrates that the Brewhouse improvement plan launched by myself and other Conservative councillors was the right decision.
"Working with the Quad to transform the Brewhouse into an attractive place to visit with the main focus on activities is starting to work.
"All of this had been done while maximising floor space as part of the work needed and expected in order to attract a much wider audience to the site.
"The people of East Staffordshire should be reassured to see that council staff working closely with the Derby Quad continue to deliver the Improvement plans launched by the Conservatives in February 2014."
Jobs are currently being advertised for a new catering facility at the site.
The council teamed up with Quad earlier in the year in the hope of transforming the Brewhouse into 'a commercially aware and audience-focused organisation'.
