Campaigners fighting to save the Cromwell Museum in Huntingdon will hand a 3000 signature petition into Cambridgeshire County Council today.

The petition has enough signatures to trigger a debate on the closure. The museum is based in Cromwell's old school but is under threat of closure .

Bob Pugh, spokesperson for the Friends of the Cromwell Museum said:

"The enormous support from the people of Cambridgeshire, and further afield, will hopefully make the Council reconsider their proposals. People were queuing up to sign the petition in Huntingdon last weekend.

With this level of support we can continue our campaign confident that the public are behind us".
