Over 8000 people have signed the petition to turn Reading Gaol into an arts and heritage site. Thank-you to everyone who has shared and signed the petition so far.
The fact that 8000 people signed the petition to save the gaol shows the enormous strength of support for saving this historic site.
Going forward, I am arranging a meeting with the Justice Secretary Robert Buckland, where I will continue to make the case for the Gaol site to be returned to the people of Reading.
