  1. Hi,
    I would like to offer my services to save the DLI.
    Personally, I just think that a straight forward ‘buy out’ would be the best option and to just let the council carry on with their folly around that area as long as the DLI continues to have a reasonable outside area and access.
    I am reasonably sure that I could arrange the appropriate ‘non repayable’ finance to purchase the museum.
    My only caveat is that I would like to incorporate (provide a base), into the building a branch of (or Durham based offshoot), charity Children in Need.

    Kind Regards
