Horsforth library renamed in honour of Olympic heroes

The Old Library in Horsforth is to be renamed in honour of local sporting heroes.

It will be named the Brownlee-Stone Centre in honour of the Brownlee brothers' success at the Olympics and David Stone M.B.E's success at the Paralympics this year.

Both Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee, the 2012 Olympic and World Champion triathletes will be at a ceremony at midday today.

"It is fantastic that we have been able to honour these inspiring local athletes in such a way by renaming one of our Council buildings after them.

"The Brownlee brothers will be there to cut the ribbon at the naming ceremony and officially open the building under its new name."

– Local Councillor Brian Cleasby (Lib Dem, Horsforth)
