Your suggestions wanted for a local hero to reopen Crosspool Tavern

Crosspool Tavern

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.
