Adam,

If you do manage to get hold of any Broadfield House images, I would really appreciate it if you could forward them to me.
Visit www.glassfairs.co.uk for information on the original National Glass Fair.

OK. David is expecting some, as detailed above. Rather hoping Simon will have something up his sleeve....I suspect he has some super images.... ;)

Hmmm wonder why not Pamela? It's worth noting here that the image verification letters are case sensitive - perhaps that's why it's failing for you?

Having emailed a number of councillors this afternoon, I am hoping that those who were unaware of the proposed closure will be visiting this thread to inform themselves what has been going on, and possibly even to comment. I am sure that everyone will agree that they should be made very welcome here and that their presence can only enhance the debate and take us forward to a resolution. I have already heard back from one opposition councillor who had been completely unaware of the proposals and expressed concern.

Hi Adam,

I wonder how many of them have heard of the 10 Million they have just spent as highlighted by Marcus in an earlier post..............

quote;-
"Oh well, there are obviously two sides to culture.....

Industrial heritage..... (or how the working classes struggled...)"

Thanks Pamela - if you are trying to send them direct to me, my mailbox has a limit of 10MB, so 4 images at a time should be fine.

Worth noting that Broadfield House normally have no objections to photos being published, inside or outside, but they do ask for a courtesy note. e.g:

Photographs courtesy of Broadfield House Glass Museum

I signed the petition, had no problems accepting signatures from Canada. Not sure that they will listen to Canadians though. It may be that given the decision is being made by a local government they will not care (which does not seem to be high on their skill sets) if the foreign people want a glass museum or not.

It occurred to me that given the possible cost of moving/refurbishing compared to running it, maybe the powers that be want that building for something else.
