Another British Heritage Museum faces the chop.
Today I receviced this email asking for the British National Party to step and help the Aston Manor Road Transport Museum, Paul Hickman the Birmingham organiser is now looking into this and we will keep you posted.
Please read the copy of the email below.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to you to inform you about the latest anti-Christian decision from the Birmingham City Council.
This relates to the use of the old Witton Tram Depot on Witton Lane opposite Villa Park.
For the past twenty years it's been used for a Transport Museum but now they want the Transport Museum to close even though the group who runs the Transport Museum have offered the council £350,000 to buy the building. The building has been valued at £250,000 by an independent surveyor. The Transport Museum groups offer has been turned down because the council are going to hand the building over to a Muslim group to be used as a Islamic Community Centre.
What makes this even more hard to understand, is the fact that a someone has even offered the council £950,000 to buy the building so that the Transport Museum can stay and this has just been turned down.
The council is run by the same two parties who are in government, which makes this decision even more shocking to understand.
Here are the links to the Museum site, please take a look.
