  2. Does anyone know what is happening just off Holywell road police tape and Holywell road closed to traffic
  3. when this happened to me I was so fed up. then a neighbor phoned the environmental health. They shifted it PDQ. Just threaten them say the environmental health are now involved and give them 24hours to shift it or you will get a skip to put their skip in if they don't move it.
  4. Yes Tony it is a good cause to get behind. A lot of people have said that they can't get down to the market to sign the petition so I have set up an online petition for them. Click the link below to contribute to the cause, Peppermint http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/saveportlandworks Ps. yes Tony you might be bias but I like your photgraphs :-)
  5. I would like to bring Portland Works to people’s attention. Portland works on Randall Street Sheffield is a Grade2 listed building of which if the owner gets his way will be redeveloped into 77 flats. As it is a listed building nothing can be done to the outside of the building but the inside can be red eloped. What is the problem I hear you ask? What no one is saying is that the inside of Portland works is home to apron 16 little workshops in which there are little mesters workshops. These workshops are still running. Pictures of Sheffield old and new face book group have at the moment a display in the castle market. They have a wall dedicated to the workshop in Portland works and a petition to stop the redevelopment going ahead. If these workshops go, so will part of Sheffield’s history. I am appealing to as many people as I can to call into the castle market and look at the Portland works display and sign the petition. Peppermint
  6. it started on the 25th of Jan and will be there for 10 weeks over the 10 weeks some of the pictures will be changed so new images will be put up. So if you go more than once you will probably see more pics. Not when first lot will be changed. I will post on here when they change them.
  7. Has anyone been down to the Castle market to see the display? It has a good insight to all the changes that sheffield has gone through and also pictures of things like the floods and other major events.
