Sir Peter Soulsby is no stranger to this blog.
When we first encountered him (The WAG Man Returns / Lodge House Controversy Continues, this blog, Fri 1 Oct 2010) , he was Sir Peter Soulsby, MP, heading up the Labour contingent in an excellent show of cross-party support for Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen`s `Buffer Zone` bill in respect of opencast mining.
Now he is Sir Peter Soulsby, Mayor of Leicester, and could be found recently in the pages of the Leicester Mercury visiting the derelict All Saints Brewery where he met with heritage groups and Leicester City Council Conservation and Building Control Officers.
The plan is to draw up a conservation strategy to save Leicester`s industrial heritage.
The Mercury article can be found here ;

It`s worth pointing out that a number of other sites of particular interest are also mentioned in the article.
Three heritage groups are mentioned, and I`m happy to give details of their web sites ;
