It was revealed tonight that the PomPrint Art Gallery might be at risk of temporary closure owing to lack of security.
A spokesman for the Mintlaw-based embroidery and printing company revealed that their treasured Art Gallery, currently housed on a WordPress blog, might need to be closed for the next month owing to a problem with the availability of security staff. The Gallery, containing many priceless works of art, is available for viewing 24 hours a day, 7 days a weeks and, therefore, relies heavily on the services of a well-known security firm to keep these treasures safe. It would appear, however, that ‘for an unspecified period of time‘, the guards have had to be posted to ‘other duties‘.
It is hoped that the company will be able to recruit other security staff perhaps, even, from Her Majesty’s Armed Forces if necessary, to enable them to keep the gallery open. If this is not to be the case, it is recommended that the public make the most of the opportunity to view the works whilst time permits.
The head curator of the gallery confirmed the company’s angst, especially in light of the new exhibition that it opened only today, and said that it would ‘do everything in its power to keep this public service up and running‘. He added, “We have, over the last two weeks, introduced the public to the works of three very talented ladies, and hope that the public get their rightful opportunity to admire their works!”
The Gallery remains open, until further notice, and can be found here. Please make certain that you visit whilst the opportunity is still available to you!
