We have been requested to support the threats to close the Goerge Tavern 373 Commercial Road, London, E1 0LA  From here you will find out how and where to write to. You can never have enough letters. They are really really important. We have till the 5th March to get everything in. People can also sign the petition. we have over 1500 signatures in just over a week. This appeal is over 6 private flats next to a pub and live music venue. It makes no sense what so ever. There has been live Music at the George for over 50years possibly even longer. It is a historic site The 6 flats would block all the windows in the old theatre upstairs and all the windows on the east wall which includes bed rooms landings hall toilet kitchen. They would dearly love to buy the club, restore it along with George and Theatre. bringing it back into community use. Weddings Christenings Wakes Party's live music ballroom dancing. It has an amazing lit up dance floor. If you could get people to tweet re tweet fb that would be fantastic. Spread the word According to Mick O’Rorke If the George goes, he believes there will not be any real ale the length of Commercial Road and East India Dock Road!
