Leicester City Council reverse decision to close museums

It has been announced that Leicester City Council have reversed their decision to close the city’s Jewry Wall Museum, Belgrave Hall, Abbey Pumping Station and The Guildhall.

A campaign, mounted by , amongst others, Leicester Civic Society, has also caused the council to rethink its proposal to charge non-city entrants for admission to the museums.

Rescue however remain concerned that such announcements only offer a temporary reprieve for such service, which, with no statutory status, are subject to further threat when the next round of cuts begins.
