|Irish Centre Supporters to Pack Council Meeting|
Campaign urges people who want to save facility to attend
The team fighting to stop Hammersmith's Irish Cultural Centre from being sold are urging their supporters to attend tonight's (26th January) full Council meeting at which the issue will be discussed.
The meeting takes place at the Town Hall and is scheduled to begin at 6.45pm. There will be a short presentation by the centre's chairman Jim O'Hara stating the case for keeping the centre open. Only members of the council will be allowed to participate in the Q & A session that follows Mr O' Hara's presentation.
Supporters will be invited back to the centre after the meeting for a free glass of wine.
The group were celebrating this weekend after submitting a petititon to the council containing almost 6,000 signatures. Campaigners had been out and about across the borough all week gathering support from local people ahead of their deadline of Friday lunchtime.
The aim was to gather 5,000 signatures - but by Friday they had beaten their target by almost 1,000, with more names still being added to the online petition
