Mosque on the Bush?

Strange goings on on the Green. Yesterday morning two large flags were put up on the disused Pavillion on the North side of the Green next to the Bush theatre and the Post Office.

Then this morning a bizarre looking large Arabic sign was strung up along the side of the building. You can see pics of the developments below.

Are we getting a mosque? And if we are will it be a nice one?! Personally I think any use of that building, which at the moment is a decrepit embarassment to the area would be a really good thing, and if it is to be some kind of Islamic building all the better because they get really well taken care of!

Anybody understand what the arabic says?[gallery]
