Protest Ahead of Meeting to Decide Fate of Snibston Discovery Museum

Around 100 people protested today outside the offices of Leicestershire County Council ahead of a meeting to decide the fate of the Snibston Discovery Museum.

 

 

Brian Vollar from Friends of Snibston organised the protest and said, “Snibston Discovery Museum is a major asset in this area, this region and indeed in the nation, over 10,000 people have expressed their view for it to be saved, unfortunately the cabinet have ignored that strength of opinion, so people have been required to come out in person and let them know how they feel”

 

Leicester County Councillor Byron Rhodes said “it costs to much to run that particular museum and its in a location where it doesn’t attract as many visitors as it needs to in order to balance itself financially and therefore there is an inevitability about it”
