Petition plea to government in bid to save school's clock tower
THE fight to save Maltby Academy’s landmark clock tower has been taken to the very top after a petition was delivered to Number 10 Downing Street.
Plans for an £11m revamp of the school under which the clock tower would be demolished have been approved by Rotherham Council’s planning board.
But an action group set up to save the tower collected 1,266 names on a protest petition, which was delivered to Number 10 by a delegation made up of Maltby Town Council member Joy Bradford, former borough councillor Brian Cutts, ex-NUM official Ted Millward and former Maltby resident Ruth Escreet.
