Villa Marina Gardens Closing 7 November 2003

The Villa Marina Gardens will be closed to the public from Monday (November 10) until the entertainment complex re-opens in Spring 2004.

The closure is necessary to enable the main building contractor, Farrans, to complete the £15million refurbishment of the building for the Department of Tourism and Leisure.

Chairman of Leisure Division Eddie Lowey MLC explained: 'Farrans are preparing to remove the safety hoardings around the Villa Marina and to make good the section of garden which has been used to store building materials. This really brings it home to us how close we are to the grand opening of this marvellous facility.'

Tourism Minister David Cretney MHK added: 'We'd like to take this opportunity to apologise to people for this necessary closure of the gardens, which is timed to cause as little disruption as possible. However, it's obvious how important it is to keep the public away from possible danger while the finishing touches are put to the new jewel in the crown of Douglas promenade.'
