Despite temperatures soaring into the 30s, there was a fabulous turnout today for the rally to ask for a rethink on the permanent closure/ non reopening of Apsley House the home of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery. I'm not sure how many people attended, certainly in excess of 100, maybe 200, but thank you to all those who made the event a tremendous success. People came with a variety of their own posters, we had flyers to hand out, the banner we had printed at Minuteman for the occasion didn't get a look in, because there were so many people in front of Apsley House, but we can save that for another day.
We were very lucky to have Stuart Harrison Photographers taking photographs which I'll share with you here. With children's workshops about to take place in a normal year, pre closure decisions, it seems appropriate to start with this little boy:
Wonderful expression, there's another:
I'll add the photos in the order in wghich they were taken:
