  1. from what I understand, you can’t wait on the road (Blackstock).... but you have waiting times for 30mins or more...how's that work then!! You could book slots in Notts and Lincs. I have loads of cardboard from moving boxes and new stuff like fridge freezer...then there’s amazon that like to deliver a new duvet in a huge box stuffed with that packing paper....you know, in case the duvet breaks 😄
  2. So, I've moved to Sheffield from Lincoln, via Nottingham for a short while. So, we only have cardboard recycling once a month in Sheffield... As opposed to every 2 weeks in those other places. Those other places you could also book a slot at the tip. I can't seem to find that Sheffield way. So, is there anyway to recycle all my cardboard rather than having to store it for a few months and put it in the bin bit by bit?
  3. Not sure if this is the correct place to post.... But where is best for hiring a van for all day Saturday? Most main ban hire places close late morning on a weekend. Looking for a 9-3ish gig.
  4. I got through on the phone...well, into the holding pattern.... Where I hung up after 15 mins... It's almost like they are deliberately trying to dissuade people from joining
  5. So I move back to Sheffield over the weekend. Now that the gyms are open I want to join a gym which has a pool.... Ponds forge of the obvious choice. Unfortunately there is no membership information on their website.... Just a phone number that just goes to voicemail. The website directs you to phone too. I know today will be extremely busy due to facilities reopening, but does anyone else have this issue or have managed to join recently? Thanks
  6. chesterfield road is the main one from town up to norton woodseats round links abbeydale and woodseats
  7. the old cycling route (and im a fattie) was via abbeydale then up woodseats road. Up the hills main road to woodseats (forgot the name) isnt too bad.
  8. Hello. I have just been offered a job in Sheffield. I am from Sheff originally, but lived in Lincoln since 2015. I will be looking to move back to Sheff as the commute will be way too long, esp. when rush hour returns to normal. New job is in the city centre (although with parking), but might also have to work near Hillsborough or Crystal Peaks. I was just about to bid on a house on the outskirts of Nottingham (near Ikea). It was a 3 bed semi for £160,000. In Lincoln, you could also get a 3 bed semi about 4-5 miles outside the centre for the same money So, I know my money will not go as far in Sheffield. For the same money, if I’m looking at a 2-3 bed terrace n somewhere like Woodseats etc (that’s where I loved before moving to Lincoln). For some reason, I don’t really want to move to the outskirts of Sheff (i.e. Killamarsh, Dronfiled etc) as I want to be able to cycle into work if poss (so, 6miles) Anyone got any suggestions other the the usual (Meersbrook, woodseats, Walkley) etc?
  9. I had a brainwave just after posting this.... I phoned my dentist in Sheffield. They gave me some numbers to try (0114 2717834) and it worked a treat (central appointments). Mods, you can close this thread now. Ps. I don't know why it would'nt let my type here until I deleted your quote, FORE, very strange!!
  10. Hi all. I have an appointment there this week. I have today come down with a head cold and want to contact them for advise/rearrange. The contact numbers online (0114 2717800) doesn't work. The automated one doesn't understand " Charles Clifford" or the department I'm going to. When the automated line puts me through to the operator, it just says "they are unable to take my call, try again later". Any advice on how to contact them? I don't live locally, so can't pop in. Kind regards B
  11. Evening all. Other than staples, does anyone know where I could print two pdf sheets off? I live in s8 so the closer the better. Thanks B
  12. http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/sheffield-bins-to-be-cleared-today-as-council-review-continues-1-7033965 Guess not then. Black bin done today, still a road full of glass and paper here in Woodseats
  13. just a quick question that i cant find the answer to on the internet. I returned from my holidays Monday night. After driving up from Gatwick, I found my street has the notices on for works to start the next morning at 7am (well, the sign nearest my car said 7pm-7am!). So, I had to drive around lots of side streets to find a parking space. Anyhow, i noticed this morning that the 3 day long notice (from 7am on the 9th Sep) has now been changed to 9 days. Anyhow know if this includes the weekends? Ie can i park on my road between 7am-7pm? much thanks. Ps it’s the pavement they’re doing. There was work going on another street this morning, but my road was still open.
  14. Im off on holiday in a few weeks....and.....well, im whiter than white. Im wanting to build up a base level of resistance so that come day one of my hols im not burnt to a crisp. So, im looking fora sunbed place in the s8 area. I work mon-fri and dont get home till 17:30, so ideally I need a place that is open till around 7. Any suggestions out there? thanks p.s. im a bloke so the more manly the place, the better
  15. thanks....already contacted him this morning. just wanting other recommnedations etc.... he could quote £1000 and I would'nt know if it was a fair deal or not
