Today Charles Hajdamach has been on the radio at 102.5 the Bridge and Linda Waltho will be speaking on the radio on Saturday 27th June between 12 and 1pm.

We are also looking forward to the Reflections Weekend on the 11th and 12th July to bring back past glass memories. This event is also being organised in support of Broadfield House Glass Museum, by Ian, Simon and Brett from the Ruskin Centre. I will be there with fellow campaigners to promote the cause, handing out leaflets and inviting people to visit the glass museum.

As mentioned earlier in this topic, I asked my MP, Tim Farron, (Westmorland & Lonsdale) to support Linda Waltho in her Parliamentary campaign to save BHGM, and I've had a reply from Tim saying that he would be delighted to support the principle of the campaign and further suggesting we ask Linda Waltho to table an Early Day Motion which he and others could sign, to elicit support for the campaign in Parliament.

Could someone who is a constituent of Ms Waltho suggest this to her please, as apparently protocols prevent MPs from responding to other MPs' constituents like me?

Hansard transcript of Linda Waltho's speech is here if anyone would prefer to read it rather than watch or listen:  http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200809/cmhansrd/cm090618/debtext/90618-0019.htm (scroll down almost to the bottom).

Grateful thanks, Anne, particularly for those of us who are hearing impaired.   Fascinating reading.

Anne,

Great idea about the early day motion - I will contact Linda Waltho!

Save Our Glass Heritage held its second meeting with L & R Consultants on 16th July, at Broadfield House Glass Museum.

The Presentation to L & R was delivered by Dr Graham Cooley and Antique Roadshow experts, Will Farmer and Andy McConnell.

We shared a vision of creating a Centre of Excellence for Stourbridge Glass.
