Lunch Plus is profiling the work of a number of social enterprises and community organisations based across the Sheffield City Region. In the latest in the series we will be visiting The Gardeners Rest, a community run pub in Neepsend, Sheffield, which prides itself on the high quality beer selection and the hosting of regular arts and musical events. It is a great example of a pub whose future was secured through a highly successful community shares issue. Not only a great pub The Gardeners Rest works with vulnerable adults and people with learning difficulties providing employment opportunities and meeting space. As they are fond of saying: “We’re more than a pub, we’re a community hub”.

Also at the event will be experts from Sheffield Brewery who will outline the joys of local brewing and working with The Gardeners Rest
