    Brilliant news! The link you added isn't working properly - its just taking me to my own events page on Facebook. I have found a 'Save our Brewhouse' campaign on Facebook if that's what you meant - nearly 1000 likes already - it's going well! Here's the link to the page (hope it works!) https://http://tinyurl.com/basgtgd

    Will you be attending the candlelit vigil tonight by any chance?
