Stamford Heritage Trust in final bid to save Stamford Museum

CAMPAIGNERS will be presenting a new business plan to reopen a museum next week.

Stamford Heritage Trust was due to meet with Lincolnshire County Council this week to present its plans to re-open Stamford Museum.

But the meeting was postponed for a week following the death of the death of former county councillor Barry Singleton on July 30.

The trust will now be meeting executive councillor for cultural services Eddy Poll (Con) on Monday at 3pm.

The museum, in Broad Street, closed on June 29 as part of the county council’s cost-cutting measures.

Chairman of the trust, Stamford town and South Kesteven district councillor Harrish Bisnauthsing (Lib Dem) is hopeful that this plan will impress the county council.

The trust’s previous bid was rejected in June.
