Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has said that Derry City and Strabane District Council is to carry out upgrade work on the Stitch in Time public artwork on top of the Rosemount Factory building.
Councillor Cooper said “A number of residents contacted me back in October and said that several of the lights on the Stitch in Time sign on top of the Rosemount Factory were out and was there anything I could do to get them fixed.
The neon sign introduced during the City of Culture year was thankfully kept due to good work of former Minister Carál Ní Chuilín. It is now one of Derry’s iconic pieces of public artwork.
I contacted the council and asked them to carry out repair work on the sign as soon as possible .They have now been in touch with me to say that the repairs will take place this week.
A large crane will be needed to carry this work and hopefully any disruption will be kept to a minimum.
