Cupola – fire and its future

A CHANCE for people to learn first hand about the Cupola House fire, the building’s history and plans for its future rebuild is on the cards at a special meeting at The Apex on Saturday, September 15.

Entitled Cupola House, The Unfolding Story speakers will include John Wilcock, lead fire officer at the devastating blaze on June 16, historian Dr Pat Murrell and Robert Light from Purcell, architects for the rebuild.

There will be a display of 200 photograohs of the fire aftermath and a conservation officer from St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

The event has been organised by the Bury Society and its chairman Alan Jary said he was hoping there would be a chance for a question and answer session with owners and engineers.

The event is free and starts at 2.30pm
