Swindon Museum and Art Gallery Relocation Plans in the News

You may have seen Monday's Telegraph piece:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/11807087/Swindon-bids-to-become-Britains-new-cultural-magnet.html on Swindon's bid to build a new museum and art gallery in the cultural quarter.
Then Tuesday's piece in the Times:

 on Swindon's plan to become a cultural destination, and today in the local paper, the Swindon Advertiser, a further piece on this theme:http://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/13611053.Former_High_Sheriff_throws_his_weight_behind_Swindon___s_bid_for_culture_centre/?ref=mmsp
But why the negativity about the place?
People do choose to live here and enjoy living here.
And FLIC Wiltshire's response with a good piece by Angela Atkinson:

I will also include a flyer by Mark Worrall who is taking part in this years Swindon Open Studios:
