Crosspool Tavern officially reopened its doors on Thursday night following a refurbishment.

Teams of contractors had been on site since Sunday night’s closure, completing structural changes, redecorating, laying new carpets and replacing soft furnishings. Staff returned at lunchtime on Thursday to set up the bar and restaurant ready for the 5pm public reopening.

Crosspool Forum Chairman Ian Hague was invited to officially open the Tavern after manager Julie Kelly had earlier put out a request to find a local hero to do the honours.

A large crowd gathered outside at 5pm to see the official cutting of the ribbon before exploring the new look Tavern for themselves.

Crosspool Tavern is closing for refurbishment at 8pm on Sunday 26 April, with the intention of reopening at 5pm on Thursday 30 April.

For the main opening event on Friday 1 May Thursday 30 April, Julia the manager is asking for your help.

Rather than getting a dignitary or celebrity to reopen the pub, Julia would like to find a local hero to do the honours. She explains: “It could be someone old or young who has helped in the community or raise money for charity; someone who has suffered a major illness or personal tragedy; or someone who has given their all for their country.”

If you have someone in mind you would like to nominate please pop in to the pub, call  Julia at the Tavern on 0114 266 2113 or message Crosspool Taven via its Facebook page., giving the name of your suggested person and reasons why you’re nominating them. The best suggestions will be put to a vote.

Make sure you take a look at Crosspool well dressing when you next go past. You’ll find it  on the grass bank outside Crosspool Tavern on Manchester Road.

This year’s well dressing theme is the centenary of the first world war.

The well dressing was created by volunteers over the last few days and was dedicated on Friday night by
Revd. Stephen Parker of St Frances of Assisi Roman Catholic Church in Crosspool.
