Merrion Centre mural set for removal

A campaign has been launched to prevent a painted mural being removed from the Merion Centre, Leeds.

The mural was painted in the 1960s but is set to be removed as part of the centre’s renovation.

Plans show that the mural will make for a series of large windows which will for part of a gym.

Campaigner Clifford Stead said: “There`s too much emphasis on rebranding these days without any thought for the future, especially in retail.

“We have asked for these murals to be preserved elsewhere in the Merrion Centre as this will soon be a glazed gym with lots of sweating people in vests on rowing machines.”
