THANKS TO ALL WHO SIGNED THE PETITION!
Walsall Museum is safe from closure!
Please sign this petition to save the Walsall Museum.
For the sake of saving £70,000 Walsall Council are proposing to close the Walsall Museum with no guarantees that the museum will be incorporated elsewhere.
Walsall's heritage will be flushed away, the costumes and many items of our history will rot away in a storage depot, the industries and the lives of those people who worked in them lost forever, the cultural, scientific and artistic identity of our past thrown away.
When I was a kid I used to love the school trips to local museums, it sparked my interest in history, being able to get close up to the artifacts of the past, I want the kids of tomorrow to be able to enjoy the experience I had, not to be told Walsall has 'no museum'.
Hi there, my name's Lee and I'm a news reporter working for the Walsall Advertiser. This week we are covering the great news on the proposal to close the Museum being reconsidered, and I wondered if the petition organiser would like to contact me? My number is 01922 721111 or you can email me at email@example.com - thanks!
most of our heritage hasbeenlost.Keep themuseum and close the dirty out dated gala baths
This is ridiculous, the savings are miniscule and far outweighed by the benefits of the museum.
