Jenny Willott MP has reiterated her support for the campaign to save the Vulcan Hotel in Adamsdown from being demolished, following the announcement that the pub will be closed on May 31st. She is writing to Brains, the Welsh Assembly Government and developer Rapport to see what can be done to stop the closure.

Jenny commented:

I was saddened to hear that a date has been confirmed for the closure of the Vulcan Hotel. I was very involved in the campaign the first time around and I'll do everything I can again. The Vulcan Hotel is hugely important to Cardiff and it would be a great loss to the community if it closes.

A three-year lease was granted by the pub's owner, businessman Derek Rapport, to Brains in 2009, but the lease is now due to come to an end, and Brains says it plans to hand the pub back to Mr Rapport.
