Swaffham Museum funding crisis


Swaffham Museum has launched an 11th hour survival appeal as a funding crisis means it might lose its professional staff or even close down.

The venue which houses a collection dedicated to the famous Egyptologist Howard Carter is currently undergoing a major facelift following an EU grant of £384,000.

But due to unexpected repair works most of the cash was used to underwrite additional costs, leaving little funds to pay full-time wages for the museum's curator and an education officer.
