Matt Rodda Member of Parliament for Reading East
Over 7000 people have signed the petition to save Reading Gaol since we launched it in May. That’s 7000 people who want Reading Gaol to become a space for arts and heritage in Reading. Thank-you to everyone for signing and sharing, and for attending the Gaol Hug last Sunday 🤝
This is a significant step forward for the campaign. The Ministry of Justice needs to listen to local people and allow the gaol to be turned into an arts and community hub.
If you haven’t already, you can still sign the petition
