Save our Ginglik?

Is £250,000 worth a comedy & music club underneath Shepherds Bush Green? I'd have to say yes. Ginglik is a unique venue and is something that Shepherds Bush should hang on to. For those that havent been it is located underneath the Green in a former public toilet facillity! It has been the venue to some well known names from music and comedy but is more associated with up and coming artists. Hammersmith and Fulham Council want to close it down because it has a leaky roof  - for which the repair bill would be £250,000. In my view a short term cost saving dwarfed by the longer term loss of charecter to the area. Do we really all want Shepherds Bush simply to be Westfield's overspill car park and nothing else?

 Now watch this protest video, from October last year and see what you think!
