Half an hour left to the end of a long, but very exciting 6 weeks! Eddy and I would like to thank the Gardeners Rest Community Society for the all the hard work they have put into this campaign, and to all of you for your support, your enthusiasm, and the lovely comments on here, in the pub, and even on the street! We are all looking forward to the next phase! Congratulations and cheers to The Crowd!

Delighted to be part of making this happen. This is one of my favourite pubs of all time and it would be great for the community to carry on what Pat and Eddie have worked so hard to build up over the last 18 years. With all that's happening in the world at the moment this feels like a way of doing something positive! Thanks for all the hard work from the steering group who have made this possible.

This was my late husband Mike's favourite pub and we held his wake there, together with musicians and dancers he'd played & danced with over the years and enjoyed many a Gardeners pint with. So how could I not invest? Good luck everyone.

Sheffield City Morris have been coming here for more years than I care to remember and we regard the pub as our home now having wandered round various pubs in the previous 20+ years of our existence. This is a fantastic opportunity to own a small slice of a great pub and long may it continue to flourish. Pat & Eddie have been great landlords and we look on them as friends now. We will be very sorry to see them sail away but onwards and upwards as they say.

The Sheffield Brewery Co. 16th November 2016

As the manager of Albyn Works www.albynworks.co.uk a mixed use office and workshop Victorian complex, we are keen to support this project. We were established in 1981 and are keen to support projects which help to retain the character of the Neepsend area. Since the pub's establishment, many of our tenants have frequented the Gardeners and we've also had year end dos there. I'm also a co-founder of The Sheffield Brewery Co. with Tim and Eddy and it's important the Gardeners continues to operate as an independent real ale establishment as part of the local community. I've seen some great one and two piece acts play there and can't think of a nicer place to spend a peaceful afternoon watching the river slip by on the edge of the city fringe! If the pub can be developed to support employment and bring in more customers then it is a very worthwhile cause. All the best from all at Albyn Works.

This pub is more than just a pub, but it is a pub! Thanks to the Gardeners Rest, Pat and Eddie, their smashing customers and friends, local businesses, assorted musicians & singers, morris men, cyclists and others, a major part of over £4000 was raised for Prostate Cancer UK and the National Autistic Society earlier this year. (This is apart from the pub's regular charity fund raising.) We spent two magical afternoons of fun, music and dance, good food and great beer and one major hair cut! Everybody told us that they enjoyed it, and would like to do it again. Now, the future of the Gardeners could really depend on us. You and me, and our friends. What do you think? x

What a great idea. I've been popping in here for years when I'm up in Sheffield. My mothers wake was held here! If it's of any use, I've been running a small brewery in Jersey for the last 10 years and regularly volunteer at both Jersey and the Rotherham beer festivals. Good luck
