Museum Future Assured

The future of the bantamspast museum is assured following talks with our new landlords Wayne Jacobs' charity One in a Million. As many will know Leeds Metropolitan University leased the space above the club shop over the last three years, that deal lapsed after the last game of the season. Into the breach stepped the One in a Million charity. Wayne Jacobs' charity who have signed a five year deal. They are very supportive of the work of supporters' groups such as bantamspast, The City Gent and the Bradford City Supporters' Trust. The museum and café will remain available to supporters on matchdays.

Over the next twelve months a permanent wall will be built where the red partition currently stands and the wall will be available for museum use. There is a long term plan to remove the escalators and build a dedicated entrance, but for the time being it will be business as usual on matchdays. The museum is in need of a revamp and the charity are looking forward to helping the museum volunteers in achieving that aim. There will be a meeting with interested parties in June.

The charity do require the former museum store room to be cleared out and volunteers will be undertaking this task on Wednesday from around 10.30am. As usual we welcome any help however modest. Supporters can join David Pendleton at the museum, willing hands are all that is required.
