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 survey to 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.
