  1. 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?
  2. Ah thanks for that. Do you find it friendlier than up here?
  3. :hihi::hihi: I'll fake a Sheffield accent then and you'll think I'm a local.
  4. I want to join a gym down there as, well, I need to lose a few pounds.
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. Do you travel a long way to work, or do work with someone who does? I know a girl in Birley who works in Nottingham city centre.
  8. Why do we always have to have one who types "rubbish" like this? You must feel proud!
  9. OK, interesting. Do you class as the area north of that as Northern England, or do you recognise the Midlands? Travelling down the M1 you enter the South East, which starts officially just north of Milton Keynes when you pass that sign that says "Buckinghamshire".
  10. In your opinion, where does the South of England start? To me, it's the area south of (and including) Tewkesbury, Banbury, Milton Keynes, Bedford, Saffron Walden, and Ipswich. Please let's not have any "south of Meadowhead roundabout" comments.
  11. I don't know Rotherham that well, but am I right in assuming Eastwood has a Roma community?
