The Crown and Sceptre is one of two former local pubs that have been purchased by the University of Southampton. The University’s plans to demolish both in June has led to students and members of the local community joining together to protect the community pub.
Facebook has once again proved itself as a useful tool for igniting interest, with 426 members in the group. They hope that by demonstrating considerable local support for the pub they will be able to persuade the University to delay demolition while alternative options are considered.
The Daily Echo will be taking photographs of supporters standing outside the Crown and Sceptre pub they are fighting to save (located here). Turn up at midday to get your face plastered across Southampton’s finest daily print publication and to get your opinions heard.
