Cheltenham Borough Council has this morning announced the closure of the art gallery and museum. The decision has been made in the interests of health and safety due to difficulties in continuing to provide adequate sanitation facilities.
Staff at the art gallery and museum are being briefed first thing this morning and will be allocated other duties.
Jane Lillystone, museum and arts manager said: “It is with great regret that we have had to close the art gallery and museum but we felt we had no alternative in the light of the current situation. We will be monitoring the situation closely and hope to reopen as soon as we can.”
We will be keeping the public informed through our web site www.cheltenhammuseum.org.uk
