Help save Wales oldest museum
#1
Once again in a bid to cut costs heritage is the first thing to go, and Gwynedd county council are planning on closing Wales oldest museum in a bid to save 60,000 a year.

This will mean that beatiful items of local and national importance will be placed into storage in bangor university or cardiff museum.

Your help is needed to reach as many people as possible and would you mind taking a few minutes to sign an e-petition or browse the web for more details - typing in save bangor museums brings up a number of good articles.

The link for the petition is
