The Cherry Tree on Carter Knowle Road has held three major music events over the last month. Well known Sheffield band Jack’s Rake performed at two: the annual staff party for St Luke’s Nursing Home and ‘Music Sunday’, which now takes place the first Sunday in every month. Due to holidays, the next event will be on August Bank Holiday Sunday, when a full BBQ will be available. Although the pub currently does not have the ability to serve food, outside catering has been brought in for each event. Big audiences have attended them all and the atmosphere has been vibrant and fun.
Meanwhile, the Cherry Tree/Co-op planning application saga rolls on. At the recent Sheffield planning committee meeting, councilors voted 10-0 in favour of keeping the pub and backing the planning officer’s decision to refuse the application. A big thank you to all those who took the time to visit the Sheffield planning portal and post your comments. The Co-op have appealed to the Secretary of State regarding planning issue, so this will now be decided by committee in Bristol, which takes two months. The value of the ACV status gained by the Cherry Tree in potentially protecting it from the planning application is now all the more obvious by the fact that Enterprise have chosen to ask Sheffield City Council for a review of the decision to award the ACV status.
The Cherry Tree is on Carter Knowle Avenue, Millhouses, S11 9FU. The number 6 bus serves the road regularly.
