Facelift for mission

29 May 2019

Facelift for mission Image

From July to October this year the Mission to Seafarers, on Flinders St, will be getting a facelift. 

It’s not a full-blown restoration – but the floors that are sagging will be re-stumped, the broken windows in the St Peters Chapel will be repaired and the outside of the historic complex will receive a facelift, that will mean the graffiti will be removed.

The campaign to have the weathervane restored and returned to the roof received a much-needed boost with a benefactor supplying the balance of funds to the grant from the Victorian Heritage Restoration Fund.

The rest of the works are subject to fundraising programs, so if you can help, the missions asks that you please get in touch.

All of this will not stop the Annual Maritime Art Prize which will open on October 4.  80 maritime artworks will be on display and entries are open now.  See the Mission website for how to enter.  www.missiontoseafarers.com.au/artprize

The mission will be closed to the general public during July to October, except to social club members of Crew 717, when the club rooms will be upstairs.  

Volunteers are still needed at the mission more than ever to help the visiting seafarers who need it for a place to rest and a smiling face to greet them when they come to Melbourne.
