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!

Shardlow Sports club in Ecclesfield is to be turned into a pub! Vandalism and arson have plagued the former sports and social club on Ecclesfield's Shardlow sports ground. It is now going to be turned into a family pub and restaurant by Doncaster-based developers Retail Leisure Associates. The pub will be a family facility and function mainly as a restaurant, similar to Tankersley Manor which is a fair distance away. The pavilion will be refurbished and the bowling green and sports fields will be retained and kept open for the community.
