I recognise that not everyone lives in Lancashire, and may not necessarily be interested in industrial heritage, but our museum service is under threat and the future of both Queen Street Textile Mill Museum and Helmshore Mills museum is uncertain. My Shadows of the North exhibition has been shown in both these museums and I know the venues and the staff well, and it would be a huge loss if they were closed. I recognise that in these times of public services austerity, hard choices have to be made, but I feel that this needs to be shared.
I would very much appreciate it if you could find the time complete the following questionnaire and share on Facebook with your own friends and ask them to complete and share also.
