"This work is vital for Maryport. We've had a difficult few years and the work on the walls was essential for health and safety.
"The walls were showing their age and needed the large investment to have them up to standard."
"It's more than just important, it's been necessary to perform the duties we do. The old building was a late 1800's building which just wasn't fit for purpose."
