  1. Flood warning for Meadowhall and Carrbrook https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/target-area/123FWF629 Do they not remember 2007?
  2. Have you ever tried ringing the council and getting through to the correct department? I did know you check this forum and hoped you might pick it up, thanks for the response. Morning run to work was back to normal this morning
  3. What is so galling is that until he actually resigns or waits for the next election nobody not even parliament can do anything about it (or even appear to want to do anything about it). In the meantime the Hallam constituents continue to suffer and be unrepresented
  4. It appears the powers that be have been playing with the traffic signal timings again (or they've brought their children to work since the holidays have started and let them loose!) Anyway at about 7-15am I travel to work along Penistone Rd into town and although it could be busy it's now stupid at the junction with Albert Terrace Road and Rutland Rd. Traffic used to be halted on Penistone Rd at Albert terrace Rd leaving traffic coming out of Albert Terrace Rd and turning right a free run up to the red light at Rutland Rd before changing to green and allowing traffic to proceed and it all worked pretty well. What happens now is Rutland Rd changes to red and allows traffic on Penistone Rd to back up to Albert Terrace Rd before the lights there on Penistone Rd change to red and Albert Terrace Rd gets a green. Traffic from Albert Terrace can't then get across without stopping in the yellow box junction and causes a backlog on Penistone Rd and plenty of frayed tempers. On my way home at around 4pm I also travel down Parkway and onto Derek Dooley Way where they've been playing with the lights at the Wicker as well causing traffic to back up to Parkway where it used to be generally clear. Anyway moan over
  5. Can anyone recommend a Nissan specialist in Sheffield (not Bristol St motors)?
  6. Quick Google search shows up William Rowland 9 -13 Meadow St, Sheffield S3 7BL
  7. Yes but he's correct. For instance Penistone Rd dual carriageway has a 30 limit. Can anyone define "Normal Road"?
  8. Slavery "a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them" These are volunteers, giving up their own time in order to benefit others. If it were not for these people the library would close and the village would lose a marvellous resource. These volunteers are in no way taking the places of people or taking the place of paid employment.
  9. Does anyone know if Morrisons Hillsborough have got Christmas wreaths in this year? If not where can I get some around Hillsborough/Crookes
  10. Does anyone know if this rescue is still running or not. My wife was hoping to make a donation for Christmas.
  11. I had more trouble dodging the buckets than the salesmen on Saturday
  12. It's no longer Spar. It's now Your Local or something. If they carry on as they are doing it won't be local for long. Not totally sure the PO is closing though as they are updating all the PO machines this week. I am aware all the old staff are talking of redundancy notices though
  13. Evans Halshaw promise to beat wbac but I've always used Autotrader rather than trade in and found it an excellent way of selling my cars in the past. Price it competitively and it will sell quite quickly if you're honest about it.
  14. Spoken to my neighbour and the plans are to put double yellows between Spoon Mews and Acorn Way just on the same side as the bus stop. There is also a plan to make it a bus clearway, whatever that is.
  15. Possibly 12 months ago there was something muted about them putting double yellow lines along Acorn Drive due to the buses having problems passing parked vehicles and stopping at bus stops. I know some of my near neighbours have received a leaflet through the door and then had a visit from the Liberal Democrats last week canvassing about the issue. I'm not sure where they are intending to install them but there is a notice attached to a sign post at the top of Acorn Drive near Nook Lane that has some sort of notice of traffic work that is going to be happening over the next 18 months. just found this: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/proposed_traffic_regulation_orde_2
  16. The EA only deal with the illegal burning of commercial waste or deal with farmers that don't register an exemption for burning untreated wood (D7) for instance. There are a couple of other things but it then gets technical. Wood burners in private housing is a matter for the local authority
  17. It's already a PITA in Malin Bridge due to the tram stop. Traffic regularly grinds to a halt with traffic backing up past the Anvil at times. The 2 new housing developments at Stannington and the proposed housing development on the old Sportsman Pub site near the doctors surgery is only going to add to the misery. Definitely not the best place for a new supermarket. I believe the council have also been monitoring traffic flow on Walkley Bank Rd due to Stannington traffic using Hollins Lane. If they do anything about that things will get even worse.
  18. The Star has shown a fire over Middlewood this morning but no more information. Just wondering if it's Wadsley Common again?
  19. They have indeed and the verges (and the park) all look as though they've had a really bad haircut with uncut tufts everywhere. The standard is appalling and testament to all the cuts that have been made (pardon the pun).
  20. Walked my dog on Wadsley Common this morning from the lower entrance off Rural Lane and someone has flattened the large gate and fence along with the massive supporting post. This must have been done with a vehicle and was intact yesterday evening. I just don't understand why people destroy local facilities that are there for everyone to enjoy:loopy:
