3,000 back campaign to save Lancashire’s mill museums from closure

A CAMPAIGN to save Lancashire’s mill museums from closure due to council cuts has been backed by more than 3,000 people.

Lancashire County Council has announced plans to close Queen Street Mill in Burnley and Helmshore Mill in Rossendale in April next year as part of a raft of cost- cutting measures.

A petition has been started to call on council leader Cllr Jennifer Mein to reverse the plan and campaigners are hoping to reach a target of 5,000 backers.

The petition has been supported by TV and film actor Richard Armitage who has shared the link on social networking site Twitter.
