The Sicey in Shiregreen suffered another attack as a number of petrol bombs exploded in its kitchen on Sunday 7th April. This fresh attack comes only weeks after 10 of the pub's windows were smashed. Luckily a passer-by spotted the blaze and alerted the fire brigade. A source from Attercliffe C.I.D said it was "...a very determined effort to burn down the pub which could have resulted in death..." Tenants Harry and Lesley Tickwood who only took the pub over in October 2001 have been left devastated by the attack. Their pub is the last in the area as other "trouble" pubs have been forced to close down. Fortunately Harry and Leslie are adamant that they will not let thugs close The Sicey!
