Save Worcestershire Archives petition

The Friends of Worcestershire Archives has launched a petition to try to save its archive service ( Here is the blurnb from the petition page:

Our award winning Archive and Archaeology Service which provides educational, cultural, local and family history resources is under attack! Worcestershire County Council intends to cut the Service's budget allocation by almost 60%.

Such a swingeing cut will destroy the Archive Service as it now exists!

This will:
  • affect children's education
  • delay or curtail planning applications and appeals
  • damage research opportunities for local and family historians
  • hinder outstanding students' research projects

There is the potential for our Archive Service to win further national awards, receive more bursaries and make more money to finance its vital work. Let's give our Archive Staff a chance.

Please sign this petition. Published by The Friends of Worcestershire Archives

And good luck to the campaign.
