We wish to thank all 27,000 people who signed the petition, our supporters in the Mosque, the readers of the Spitalfield’s Life blog, and all those who have worked with us to reach this critical stage of our campaign to preserve and revitalise Britain’s oldest single-purpose industrial building.

Factum Foundation and Re-Form Heritage are looking forward to the decision that will be made by the Secretary of State.
