Meerkat Harborough campaign gains momentum

You are, I am certain, thirsting to know how the Meerkat Harborough campaign is getting on. Well it's good news.

From yesterday's Leicester Mercury:
More than 1,000 people have backed an online campaign to twin Market Harborough with the mythical Russian village of Meerkovo.

The move comes after the Mercury revealed insurance company Compare the Market wanted to change the town's name to Meerkat Harborough for a day for its latest advertising campaign.

A Facebook page devoted to Meerkat Harborough has attracted 1,000 supporters and a website has also been set up ...

More than 500 nominations have been submitted for scores of towns, including Market Bosworth and Market Rasen, but Market Harborough has the most so far.
I shall, of course, keep you posted. Meanwhile, visit the Meerkat Harborough website and Facebook page.
