The future

It's official: the only thing that'll stop live music at the Dove is you! If you don't support it in person & put your money where your mouths are. Thanks to your comments, objections & personal support, Dawn has secured the unanimous support of the Planning Committee today. They have strongly endorsed the cultural & community value of what we do & have recorded officially in writing that the development next door will not be allowed by the council to threaten what we do, even if any residents should make a complaint in the future.
We think is probably a unique achievement.
Yes, the developers got their planning permission, as we always thought they might, but with strict conditions & re-assurances & we get free double glazing & new doors, which has the bonus side effect that the pub will be much warmer & more environmentally friendly next winter Thank you all very much indeed for helping keep our unique little venue in the heart of Sheffield safe for the forseeable future! & if you want to buy Dawn a drink, I think she probably deserves (needs!) it.
