  1. I read somewhere that Sheffield and Chesterfield people have the same accent. Would you agree? I personally think the Chesterfield accent is different.
  2. Not sure, probably because of Covid.
  3. Given the little branch to Herdings Park now just has a hourly service, is it time to get rid of it and concentrate on the main services to Halfway? Having a tram service that operates once each hour in a city the size of Sheffield seems odd.
  4. Given a lot of the regeneration on The Moor would now be a good time to demolish the hideous and ugly Debenhams building and replace it with something much nicer?
  5. Surely spending that money on attracting new tenants to these empty units would be better.
  6. Such a depressing thought but probably an accurate one.
  7. Do you think Sheffield city centre will bounce back from its current state? With new developments taking shape amidst a backdrop of many empty stores, what do you think lies ahead for its future?
  8. A friend and I came to Sheffield last night to see Kevin Bridges. At 18:30 we saw one person laid on the road near Fitzalan Square, and outside HMV a bloke bent over looking like a zombie. I think both were on Spice. I have never seen this in Leeds or anywhere else. Can anyone tell me Sheffield particular has a problem with Spice?
  9. Ah thanks for that. Do you find it friendlier than up here?
  10. :hihi::hihi: I'll fake a Sheffield accent then and you'll think I'm a local.
  11. I want to join a gym down there as, well, I need to lose a few pounds.
  12. Hi folks. I am thinking of upping sticks and moving 25 miles south to Sheffield. Wakefield hasn't been a happy place for me, or successful in terms of jobs. I have a chance of a job in Sheffield, although not a terribly well paid one. However, progression may be available, and I can always look for a better role once I'm there. The thing is I don't know anyone there apart from person, so is it easy to make friends there? It may beg the question why I want to live there, but I have a son in Leicester so it's only just over an hour by train. Also, I have also lived in Nottingham and have friends there, so closer still. Also, my friends in West Yorkshire won't be too far either. As for the city, I like Sheffield and it's one the edge of the Peaks. I'm not overly keen on parts of the city centre, but it's being done up so good things seem on the way. Also, I have to be honest, I find Sheffield people just normal and nice without anything to prove, unlike Leeds and Manchester (sorry if you hail from either). So, for an outgoing, friendly, 43 year old male, is Sheffield a good choice?
  13. Does anybody work at, or know anyone who works for this company in Attercliffe? If so, what's it like and is it easy to progress?
