Residents campaign to save The Plough pub
Crosspool residents are fighting to save The Plough pub.
The Save the Plough group has been coordinating the campaign to keep the building as a pub and save the sporting heritage of Sandygate. Together with local councillors, they have launched a surveyto gauge public opinion on the issue. They’re also raising money to support the campaign.
Ideas include turning the site into a multi-use community facility and a visitor centre for the world’s oldest football ground, which is opposite.
Some residents are also in support of the the idea of a convenience store opening in place of the pub. If you have views either way then consider making them known to Sainsbury’s, Sheffield Planning Committee, our local MP and your councillors:
- Adam Hanrahan, Liberal Democrats – Sandygate Sainsbury’s survey page
- Anne Murphy, Labour – Crookes and Crosspool branch page
- Craig Gamble Pugh, Labour – Crookes and Crosspool branch page
Last year The Plough was listed as an asset of community value.
