Everyone (including me) has had a moan about the state of the Mowlem, especially the disgusting mock-victorian bars, so i decided to have a moan to Hall & Woodhouse, who share responsibility with the trustees (as far as I know). Here was their very positive reply:
"PaulGood news!There is a major internal and external upgrade planned for the Mowlem in 2007. I couldn't agree more that it is currently not doing itself justice.Thanks for your feedback.RegardsNick SellickArea Manager".
Now I think that's great, and even better if they consult local people about the new look they could go for. So I thought we could have a conversation here!My opinion: Go for a clean contemporary look with the bar that sticks out clad in oak, the signs modern and maybe backlit, the glass should be cleaned up and left as glass, the lower area where you can sit outside should have some decent benches and lighting, the interior should be white and have local art in it in a changing display, and they should reflect the modern building, the coastal location and the local art scene...What does anybody else think - BE POSITIVE!
