  1. Yours sentences are getting longer. And no emoticon this time. https://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/topic/434807-beggars-homeless-street-drinkers-amp-drug-users-in-sheffield/page/226/?tab=comments#comment-8752608 https://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/topic/434807-beggars-homeless-street-drinkers-amp-drug-users-in-sheffield/page/226/?tab=comments#comment-8752660
  2. Still sore about the exchange over a week ago starting about here https://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/topic/473200-the-conservative-party-part-two/page/1837/?tab=comments#comment-8748641? Or last Monday's exchange which appears to have been deleted? Or FoxLady is your missus / g/f?
  3. How - as you are seemingly reluctant to reveal even the general area of the branch locations?
  4. I thought that usually rugby was played in the autumn / winter and cricket in the spring / summer.
  5. Correct, Half the beds per head of population than we have in France. Don't think that people appreciate how bad the NHS has become after 13 years of Tory cuts.
  6. Maybe because; 1) Can't ever recall anyone on SF ever claiming to witness 3 shoplifting events in the 20 years I've been on the Forum - never mind in a few weeks. 2) A public spirited poster might just have mentioned the area of Sheffield these things happened rather then "Co-op" or "Sainsburys" - not exactly a shortage of both in Sheffield. Yep - a minimum of a thousand of shoplifting events a day reported to the police in the UK (obviously an underestimate of the total) . Shoplifting reports to the police equate to as near as damn it one event per retail outlet per year. https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/crimeandjustice/bulletins/crimeinenglandandwales/yearendingjune2023 Crime in England and Wales: β€œPolice recorded theft has increased by 10% (to 1.7 million offences) compared with the year ending June 2022. This rise was predominantly the result of increases in theft offences against businesses, such as shoplifting (a 25% increase to 365,164 offences).” https://www.google.com/search?sca_esv=587141471&sxsrf=AM9HkKlYb14qtJmZ4pQfPfma7cdA0bv7Qw:1701476995842&q=How+many+retail+outlets+are+in+the+UK%3F&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiF3Ljfv--CAxWaT6QEHXsRBSsQzmd6BAhTEAY&biw=1366&bih=651&dpr=1 Total number of retail outlets in the UK in 2022 317,005
  7. It's not like this is new is it? Been going on from the mid 70's at least. Relatively cheap housing, close to the city, good public transport links, friendly locals. First moved to Walkley 1980 to rent - knew quite a few ex University / Poly students renting or buying in the area. Me and our lass bought a house in Walkley in 1987. By then a good half of our mates were ex- students who'd bought up there. Go in the "old gits"room in the Hallamshire on Commonside - folk there who came to Sheffield in the 60's and 70's and have been retired for 10 years or more.
  8. Doubt if it's going to be that many a month. Seeing as there are at least 20k per day vehicles using Meadowhead roundabout then the additional traffic is minimal.
  9. Where do Sheffield City play their home games? Love to see some goals scored by a local team.
