4000 signatures in 48 hrs ! and a response from Kenneth Gibson, local MSP
We are humbled by the statements of support from around the world, and the 4000 of you who have added your names to the petition. I have been in contact with the local Member of the Scottish Parliament, Kenneth Gibson (Kenneth.Gibson.firstname.lastname@example.org) and he and the education secretary Mike Russell, are very aware of your efforts. He said:
"Mr Russell has made it absolutely clear he will do all he can within his power to ensure the UMBSM survives... I can assure you that my own and Mr Russell's efforts are dedicated to securing the best possible outcome for the UMBSM, it's staff and the people of Cumbrae."
Let's keep on the pressure to ensure that the Station is maintained: for science, for education, as a resource and for the local economy.
