  8. We have lived in North Anston for past 15 years,it is well served for shops pubs and open spaces,anston stones woods is very nice,good schools in area and parks.Like most places some parts are better than others but you would be able to see that for yourself when looking for a house,we have not had any problems in the time we have been here.

  13. I can remember the one on corner of Stanhope Road and also when i was at Gleadless school,i left in 59,there was a small shop opposite the bottom of Croft Road .
  14. My wife has a scooter which she has had for the past 8 years and it is insured and has third party cover,she would much prefer not to have a scooter and be able to walk on her own but that is no longer possible.We see lots of people on scooters who make silly decisions and put themselves and other people in danger but like some older car drivers they do not want to give up there independence and freedom to go out. Untill the law changes and older car drivers are required to have there driving abillity checked and scooter riders have to have a test then nothing will change.I am an older driver by the way 73 but like everyone else think that i am ok.
  15. Only a mobility scooter which is class 3 and can do 8 mph can be used on roads,anything smaller can only be on pavement.You do not need road tax or insurance for a mobility scooter.
