Support the Spotted Dog, Alcester St!
From an Abacus resident: The Spotted Dog pub in Alcester St, Digbeth has been served with a \'Noise Abatement Order\' due to the parties and live music held in the garden - something of a tradition for many years. A handful of complaints from residents living in the newly built Abacus appartments have led to this order. While I understand the issues of noise, these events have for a long time been enjoyed by local residents and even by those from further afield, giving Digbeth a fantastic reputation for real entertainment. I support the Spotted Dog in it\'s fight to continue as a focal point for the area and helping keep Digbeth full of life - the very reason many of us moved here. I would especially like to hear support from fellow Abacus Residents, who are in real danger of losing a real local gem. ****Please note that the request for a donation after you have signed is auto-generated by ipetitions.com and is NOT affiliated to this campaign.

I have owned the Spotted Dog for over 22 years and the premises, until recently, have never been the subject of complaints of any nature. The Spotted Dog is a well-run establishment catering for the needs of local residents and visitors to the area. It is an integral part of a vibrant entertainment community and has been the venue of choice for countless functions in the last twenty years. These range from traditional Irish music to live bands in both the pub and in the garden, and have included many weddings, funerals, end of term school staff functions, charity functions and St Patrick
