  1. This is a bit depressing really and shows how reliant so many people are on their cars. At the expense of the environment and public health. I am in no way having a personal go at Angel1 who may indeed live in a remote area and may be physically unable to walk far or cycle. But long term, as a society we need to wake up to fact that this isn’t sustainable and (to get back on topic) we don’t have an entitlement to park in stupid places just because it’s personally convenient. I have a car and wouldn’t want to give it up but I don’t routinely use it for short trips the way many do. If everyone **that is is physically able to do so and/or does not need to carry a heavy load** walked journeys of less than 1-2 miles rather than drove our environment would be far more pleasant.
  2. A visitor to sheffield shouldn’t need to seek out toilets in a far corner of a department store or sneak into a cafe or pub. I still don’t believe that businesses should be the primary public toilet provider in a city centre for people that are not customers. For one thing, it means that genuine customers may well have to put up with manky toilets and/or have to queue because they are being overused.
  3. Personally I don’t really see why shops, cafes, pubs etc should have to provide toilet facilities to people that are not customers. There should be adequate public toilets in city centres. I don’t even mind paying a small charge to use them if this means the toilets will be clean and well maintained.
  4. It’s from the tree roots that protruded into the walk at one time. Trees on the top side of the walk are well above the level of the road and the roots would still protrude if the bank had not been walled.
  5. I think ash means areas of restricted parking closer to the uni/hospitals/city centre. You could park on the roads shown but despite what ash says, there is car crime in that area. I live locally and have seen the evidence of this early in the morning on several occasions. Personally I would prefer to pay to have my car on campus with cctv and security staff than unattended for long periods on a side street. It’s not difficult to identify parked cars in the area that are likely to belong to students and no doubt these are a target.
  6. That makes sense. I noticed fairly recently that the this area is covered by cctv and no parking notices are plastered everywhere.
  7. Anti-social behaviour makes the city centre unattractive to many people. It’s a complex problem with no easy solutions but many people will avoid the city centre due to this. Whether that is right or wrong is another matter, but it is a fact.
  8. There was loud music in the Ringinglow area early this morning.
  9. Well said. Quite frankly I bored of people being outraged by anything that could possibly by any stretch of the imagination be a criticism of a religion.
  10. If any apparently intelligent pharmacist wishes to live their life according to myths and fairy tales from the distant past that’s their business. But if they want the benefits of modern life, such as a career as a pharmacist, they need to keep their beliefs to themselves when dealing with the general public and be professional.
  11. A pest control company put it down saying that rats will avoid traps if they see one of their own caught in one. You can buy poison in shops but I don’t think it’s as as powerful as the stuff pest controllers can use. I really hope this is resolved but any tips for n getting rid of them are welcome.
  12. And back on to the topic of rats................thank you for suggestions, I will use a trap if there are more signs of rat activity. A neighbours cat has also had a wander around the house. Nothing caught but apparently just the scent of a cat will discourage rodents.
  13. So, a rat has been seen in the attic bedroom. Any advice on the best way to get rid of it (them??) I'm sure it was attracted up there to begin with by some nuts that were dropped there and forgotten about. It was only when these were all cleaned up it made it's presence known scurrying around and climbing on the bed no doubt looking for food. The likely entry point is sealed off now and bait has been put down but I'm worried about the smell of dead rats trapped in the house in this heat
  14. Having seen someone develop a serious mental health condition, almost certainly as a result of a cannabis habit that started as a teenager, I would strongly disagree that cannabis is harmless. Sure, alcohol carries it own, different, health risks but that’s not a reason to advocate cannabis use. More people drink alcohol sensibly than are ‘loud, aggressive with liver damage and end up sparked out in the gutter’, just as more cannabis users are chilled out and have cravings for crisps and chocolate bars than end up with serious mental health issues.
  15. Yes. Some blokes seem to prefer going for slash around a back alley of a pub rather using the toilets in the pub. I really can’t understand this. Recently I saw a man get off a bus on Ecclesall road and go for pee against a wall in full view. He ended up peeing all over his shorts and hands though with so many people around barging past. Justice was done 😂
