On Saturday (18 January) the Friends of the Cromwell Museum gathered in Huntingdon town centre with hard copies of the Cambridgeshire County Council petition and spoke to people about the threat to the Museum.  The response was fantastic, with over 350 signatures received in two hours.

The Friends will be gathering signatures again on Saturday 25 January.  Currently the ePetition stands at 915 signatures; with the addition of signatures received in hard copy, we are approaching the 1,500 mark.  We need a really big push between now and the closing date of 5 February to get to the 3,000 signatures needed to force a debate of full Council.

If you live/own a business/work/attend a school or college in Cambridgeshire….

…then please sign the CCC ePetition here:

…and the SurveyMonkey petition here:

If you do not live/own a business/work/attend a school or college in Cambridgeshire but do want to express your concern about the proposed closure of the Museum…

…please add your name here:

At the last count, the SurveyMonkey petition stood at over 2,300 signatures which is a fantastic achievement.  It will really demonstrate to the Council that the Museum is valued by people within and beyond the county, and even the country.

Thank you to Helen Drake at the Hunts Post for her permission to reproduce the photograph above.

    What a dumb decision it would be if Huntingdon did not have the Cromwell museum for the future generations, better to have councils take a look at the incomes of the people at the top , savings there would solve the situation instantly.
    My wife and I lived in the area for a number of years, the history is amazing.
