Bushys protesters take to Facebook

A Facebook group set up to protest against moves to put the Bushy’s TT Beer Tent site out to tender has attracted more than 1,100 members in less than 24 hours.

The page, entitled “The beer tent is Bushy’s and it should stay Bushy’s”, was set up after Douglas Council revealed it would open up a bidding process.

The beer tent run by Martin Brunnschweiler’s brewery became a landmark after the closure of Bushy’s Pub on Victoria Street in Douglas.

But the council says it may consider other uses for the Bottleneck Car Park on Douglas Promenade for TT next year.
