THE ongoing £9 million refurbishment of Glasgow's Maryhill Burgh Halls as a community and business centre, which when complete will contain 12 office suites, has entered an exciting new phase.

Stained-glass panels by Stephen Adam (1848-1910) are now on display in the formerly derelict Victorian police station and town hall.

The 20 panels offer a rare, non-idealised glimpse of a Scottish industrial life from the workers' perspective.

In November 2010, the seven-year project, led by the Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust, was awarded a prize for best contribution to urban regeneration in Scotland through the use of European structural funds at the ESF Best Practice awards.

The halls will include a modern public hall, cafe, a commercial and community recording studio, a nursery, meeting rooms and courtyard garden.
