THE future of Grantham Museum is expected to become a little clearer next week during a special AGM.

Grantham Museum was due to close indefinitely earlier this year after Lincolnshire County Council withdrew all funding but was kept alive by volunteers, businessmen and community leaders who formed a new group - Grantham Community Heritage Association.

The GCHA will hold its first AGM on Thursday night (21 July), which is open to all, at the King’s School at 6pm.

Courtney Finn of GCHA said: “It is the first public meeting we have had since December so it will be about bringing people up-to-date and giving them an idea of when we will be re-opening the museum.”

People who attend are also likely to get an idea of the first exhibitions which are planned to tie in with the opening of the museum.

Speakers from six sub-committees will also give people a brief look at where the project currently stands and what help is needed.

There will also be elections held to elect officers into various posts in the Grantham Museum Association including chairman, treasurer and secretary.

The meeting will be held in the school’s library.
