  1. Actually a very good idea, and the part about Aldi made me chuckle.
  2. Ah that's nice. Glad to hear she's still about. No doubt she'll have to be very careful during this period due to her medical conditions. Wish you well P.T. x
  3. What a shame. I finally got to see him about 12 years ago in the New Barrack Tavern on Penistone Road, and wasn't disappointed. He played there a few months later and was top drawer again. Glad I finally got to see him and exchange a few words with the great man. Sheffield lost another fine son. RIP Frank. x
  4. https://www.zoopla.co.uk/to-rent/commercial/details/53931316?search_identifier=51e6556abdcb8be5fd8b1e26f976f0d0 Heres the property for rent on Zoopla,
  5. I was at the bus stop opposite last weekend, and did wonder what was happening this shop. Live very closeby, and I think I've been here 10 times or so in 20 years!
  6. I never knew that Timpson's shoe shop was there that early! I remember my mum taking me to Hillsborough from Crookes to go there for school shoes in the late 70's/early 80's ! Seemed a cavernous place with boxes and shoes plied ceiling high, almost like a film set as I remember as a very small boy.
  7. The police weren't remotely interested in attending the incident at my father in laws garage, even though there are visible finger prints all over his car! They could have gathered these to build a case surely once the perpetrators are caught and link the crimes?
  8. My Father In Laws garage and several others were ramraided very closeby here on the same evening. Obviously all connected.
  9. Outpatients have lifts that serve A, B & C floors only.
  10. Well you could well say the same about Sheffield University staff, their staff now pay on this bus, a few years ago they travelled free. Students still travel free though.
  11. think they stopped travelling free about 3/4 years ago now.
  12. Agreed. 8500 lorry loads of fumes into a greenbelt area? nice. Even the Sheffield City Council agree.... "The biggest cause of pollution is transport, especially diesel vehicles. The UK, including Sheffield, has been in breach of the legal limits for Nitrogen Dioxide (NO₂) levels since January 2010."
  13. Had a look at this and the driving range is wanting to extend it's business and driving range. Looks like it's Hague Plant who've been granted the permit to move the aggregate. There has been an obejction already from Bradfield Parish Council. Quotes from the plan below: PLANNING PERMISSION REF: 15/00502/FUL EXTENSIONS TO DRIVING RANGE AND RECONFIGURATION OF EXISTING GROUND FLOOR LEVEL TO CREATE FLAT DRIVING AREA "PROPOSAL The area to be filled is in accordance with the approved plans ref: "Existing and proposed Sections, A14-169/03 Revision A. The amount of material, consisting of inert soils and aggregates, to be imported to achieve these levels is 77,000 cubic metres. This will amount to 8,500 truck movements." https://planningapps.sheffield.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=PZU7JINYMX500&activeTab=summary This is the link above to the application. The planning application number is 15/00502/COND1 is anyone wishes to object or send comments to planningdc@sheffield.gov.uk Hope this helps.
  14. Actually STH fund this bus, out of their budget, therefore their staff travel free. SCH don't contribute, so their staff pay to use this bus.
  15. Absolute death trap this junction, hate it. Seen plenty of accidents here, and thats just me passing thru to meadowhall of an evening every so often. Thought if a black spot had a spike in accidents then action was taken? like cameras or junction rethink?
  16. People finishing work popping in for stuff for evening meals?
  17. I have grave news..... It is well kept.
  18. Must admit I am not keen on the Loxley range on beers either. I had high hopes for them but they seem bland to me and not very moreish. The Loxley is a strange pub for me, I prefer it in the warm summer months and like the outdoor part, interior wise the novelty has worn off with me now. However the food is still v good the couple of times we have been. Not a pub I'd spend ages in, but a stop off for a pint or 2 at the most. So, I doubt I'll be rushing to the 'Raven' ? is it called? Are they doing food here btw?
  19. My bold, this is definitely true, the roads would simply be a disaster if this was built, Rivelin Bank, Stannington Road and Rivelin Valley Road are already at capacity at rush hour as it is.
  20. Didn't realise that Longden Doors closed Feb 2019. Sad end really after all those years. The name still lives on in County Durham as the rights to use the Longden name and branding were bought by another company. https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/jobs-lost-as-historic-sheffield-door-firm-closes-134381
  21. My youngest daughter has just been told to get glasses, and while shopping for them I noticed an ad in Optical Express(i think) for £595 per eye for laser correction. Seems a good price, has the price come down a lot in recent years? Seems logical.
  22. I used to do this job for Currys a good few years ago and hated it, even back then tho we were warned that cars and vans follow your van around hoping to steal either personal belongings and/or stock that is on the van(e.g. tv's laptops) One pair of lads did actually get a large plasma tv stole off their van, it was about the time that lcd and plasma screens were launched and it cost a fortune. One of the worst jobs I've ever had.
  23. Must admit I felt the same about Pinders. My eldest starts at Forge Valley this week, and Pinders did a sale evening of stock at the school. We arrived only an hour after the start time and a lot of the stock had gone, which says to me they didn't bring very much. The stock answer was, "Feel free to pop over to the shop", Er, no. I hate Crystal Peaks, its a good drive from our end of town, and from the service we got at the school it didn't fill me with confidence to waste fuel 'popping' over there. They also did 'hold up garment to child, yeah that looks ok' style of sizing. Hopefully they'll get dropped by our school to someone who can actually supply properly.
