The owner of Crookes Social Club on Mulehouse Road today apologised to residents for the commotion which followed celebrations at the venue last night.

Maurice Champeau said he was assured when taking the booking that there would be no disturbance, and he had been horrified by what unfolded.

“We were given all sorts of assurances that this wouldn’t happen, and we’re deeply sorry for the disturbance,” he said.

"It wasn’t people attending the function, which was limited to 30 guests in keeping with lockdown restrictions. It was an entourage which turned up at the end of the night to escort the married couple away and decided to start letting off fireworks and making this horrendous noise in the street.

“We called police, who said they had already been notified by a neighbour, and handed over the details of the contacts we had so they could investigate.

"From the comments we’ve had apparently this party went on through various parts of Sheffield causing a commotion as they headed to their final destination.

"I’m truly very sorry, but at the end of the day we’re just a little club trying to do anything we can to survive and I really don’t know what else we could have done on this occasion.”

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said it was notified of a disturbance outside the social club at around 12.15am today, Tuesday, May 25.

“The disturbance is believed to have lasted for about half an hour. Enquiries are continuing by the local Neighbourhood Team,” she added.
