>realising that he was interested in Bletchley Park.

>I have blogged about it here www.savingbletchleypark.org

>Rory Cellan Jones who was with us yesterday has blogged about it

>In January I took some social media gurus to Bletchley Park to show 
>them what a wonderful place it is and yesterday Christian Payne took 
>some fabulous photos which you can see here on his Flickr pages.

>Stephen Fry has said that he is in for the long haul in terms of 
>saving Bletchley Park and I believe that his involvement will make a 
>considerable difference to the public awareness and hopefully 
>pressure on government to give substantial and sustained funding to 
>Bletchley Park.
>
>Thanks again very much to everyone for your supportive messages and 
>for signing the petition.
