  1. I am not saying the council should have bought the land I was being facetious, but our local councillor seems to have enough time to interfere
  2. If this is true why did the council allow the land to be sold to a private developer, They should have stepped in and informed the legal team of the prospective buyers of this and bought the land themselves for "community garden" If it was a legal binding amendment then it should have shown up an any searches that were done.
  3. This has never been a community garden It has always been private land. The fact that people wanted to plant flowers on it doesn't make it theirs and that was their choice even tho they knew it was private land. I have lived at that end of Crookes for over 40 years and I have never seen anyone use it, apart from it being a dog toilet. If people want green space the Bole Hills are two minutes away. I'm sure playing on there and having picnics if far better than on some land that has buses and cars passing with fumes all day and night.
  4. Try I post They are based at Templeborough Rotherham I have used them a few times and haven't had any problems
  5. I was told it is the lights from Sheffield Wednesday ground Apparently they leave them on to heat the pitch
  6. There are some on the side of Carracks as well Made to look like windows and doors I personally think they are very clever.
  7. I was out walking the other night and passed Revell Grange at Stannington and was quite interested to read its story. The Revell family moved there in 1742, but previously lived at Nethergate Hall in Stannington. I can't find any reference to Nethergate Hall anywhere and wondered if anyone knew anything about it, or where it actually was. Thanks
  8. Why does it state that the 52 goes to Doncaster Its the Crookes - Woodhouse bus
  9. My daughter was on the council list for 15 years before she got offered a one bedroomed flat So good luck with that I think if you want a council property it best to put your name down when you are young and at least you are racking up the years.
  10. If this carries on the word "man" will be obliterated from our vocabulary, unless of course it has "wo" in front of it.
  11. I think what he meant was it would have been better if the road was closed due to high winds, not that the lady was killed due to high winds.
  12. I agree that we have to use less plastic, but 90% of the time we the consumer have no choice. Take prescription medicines, once upon a time the pharmacist dispensed them into little brown glass bottles and we returned them when we got our next prescription. Now we get them all in cardboard boxes with reams of paper and the actual pills in plastic. So thats just one way we have no choice.
  13. I was sitting on a bench at the top of Stannington on Saturday evening, and I saw this as well I presume it was a meteorite as it came over from east to west and disappeared over the valley at Loxley, presumably burnt out.
  14. Some people work hard all their lives, pay into pension pots, pay NI contributions, then die just after retirement, and then all their hard earned cash goes to the government. My Dad paid what was called super annuation for all his working life and when he died my Mum didn't get any of it.
  15. Take out Gap insurance then if you have an accident, the gap insurance pays off the remaining finance.
