Northamptonshire's Wellingborough Museum under threat
Wellingborough Council is planning to slash the £26,000 annual budget for Wellingborough Museum to just £10,000. In addition to holding items of local interest, the facility also hosts 3000 reels for Northamptonshire Film Archive and the library of the Northamptonshire Family History Society. The museum has only one paid member of staff, Ian Nunney, its archaeologist, whose job is now believed to be under threat.
