The Gardeners Rest in Neepsend could become Sheffield first community-owned pub following a successful crowdfunding campaign by the newly formed Gardeners Rest Community Society. When the owners of the Gardeners Rest pub, Eddie Munnelly and Pat Wilson, announced their intention to sell up for a quieter life on a narrow boat, pub regulars grouped together to try to raise the necessary funds to take the pub into community ownership. The Gardeners Rest Community Society intend to maintain the pub and to develop it as a community hub supporting local businesses, artists and community groups.
