  1. Went and got our Christmas tree from a local farm this weekend. Tree chosen whilst still in the ground and will only be cut down on the day of delivery (though you can get yours cut down straight away if you want to take it with you - though ours wouldn't fit in the car)
  2. No, Totally separate entities
  3. Went Thursday evening and tried quite few different beers (managed to only have one disappointing beer (my fault really as I went on whim but it just didn't hit the spot I thought it would taste wise). Did my usual and forgot my prepared list but just about managed to find everything to try and one of those I missed had already sold out anyway as well as a couple I hadn't spotted. Liked the idea of getting beer tokens in the price as there was a bit of a queue at the token point where we first went so was able to go and get a nice half to try whilst waiting which made the queue less of a chore. Does anyone know the winners of the champion beer? Had a quick look on the Camra site but nothing has been posted and didn't see any mention at the event
  4. Interesting article in the Daily Mail that talks about this https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7408485/MARTIN-SAMUEL-Dont-blame-elite-demise-Bury-fall-business.html
  5. I would have thought that the biggest problem to getting a non merry go round manager is the timing. I would have thought that most decent (even if unknown to us in the UK) European Managers and up and coming younger managers would be in jobs. That means that DC would have to first identify a manager, then ask his current club for permission to speak to the manager and get something sorted. TBH I can't see many clubs giving permission at this late stage as they would possibly then be in the same position as Wednesday. So Unless there is a a Manager out there willing to do a Bruce and resign then I can see this being a bit awkward. That then leaves one of the usual suspects or a possible out of the blue out of contract European manager who will probably have no working knowledge of the Championship. I have heard said that Bullen doesn't want the job (only from fans not seen this in writing) but surely it is in Wednesday's best interest to ask him to do it for the length of time it takes to get in another permanent manager, even if this entails bringing in people to help him out in the meantime.
  6. Just found this on the Supertram twitter feed, work being done by AMEY and not supertram More Tonight is the first night of road surfacing works by Amey outside Hillsborough Interchange. On Monday 15th, Tuesday 16th & Wednesday 17th July the SL1/a and BL2 replacement bus services will operate on the route below from 10pm to the end of service.
  7. There is a raffle, auction, BBQ, face painting, a bouncy castle (the car park will be closed off) plus bake sale (all from the poster on face book and in the pub)
  8. Please note that there is a tractor rally around the Bradfield and Dungworth Area on Sunday 07/07/2019. This event is raising money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and consists of a convoy of 30+ tractors (who all pay to enter) and then events in the Nags Head Pub in Loxley. Please see below for details of the route taken as this amount of tractors can cause hold ups if you are in the vicinity. The tractors will be leaving Storrs Green Farm at 11:00 AM and go along Stannington road to it's junction with Oldfield Road before heading out on Oldfield Road, onto Church Road and then turning Left past the Crown and Glove and heading out on Riggs High Road ETC, eventually turning right onto Mortimer Road. It then continues all the way through Strines, back into Low Bradfield and then on New Road past the Dam before heading up through Dungworth to Our Cow Molly at 13:00 hours approx where the tractors will pull up for a break. After the break the tractors will depart at 14:00 approx and go down Lea Moor Lane, Storrs Lane and then up Rowell Lane turning left at the top and heading out towards Bradfield (passing the Nags Head pub at about 14:15) and will then go up through High Bradfield, up past Kirk Edge and onto Onesacre Lane, Peat Pits Lane, Brightholmlee Road and then via Bent Hills Lane and Raynor Syke Lane down onto Lumb Lane, Onesmoor Bottom, Burnt Hill Lane, and Burton Lane to the edge of Oughtibridge. Then on to Haggstones Road into Worrall , onto Towngate Road, Kirk Edge Road, Moor Road, Holdworth Lane and onto West Lane to go back down to Loxley Road where the tractors will be parking up at approx 15:00 Full details can be found on Facebook by searching for Tractor Rally 2019 Mods please note that I have placed this in the News and Discussions and not the going out section due to the information above about the traffic issues
  9. It has been a lot better without the trams but it isn't perfect. It only takes a minor issue anywhere in the area and it can take ages to sort itself out again
  10. It isn't just the traffic light sequencing the needs looking at. The whole area needs reviewing. Yesterday at about 5 pm it was an absolute dogs dinner between Bradfield Road and the bottom of Ripley Street. Ripley Street looked to be blocked solid as nothing could get up from either side. This meant a queue of vehicles all the way from the junction at Bradfield Road so everything was stopped. I was walking from the bottom of Forbes Road and as I got closer to the junction a bus was blocking all the traffic from getting from Bradfield Road to either Holme Lane or onto Langsett Road. This appears to have eventually helped clear Ripley Street as traffic started flowing again. To me it is a simple case of too many vehicles (private and public transport) and not enough open roads so the whole area needs looking at.
  11. It isn't the carbon credit as they have already circa £120 million for this in the form of a loan from the government. They need another 30 million (down from circa 70 million) to keep going.
  12. I can't work out if it is incorrectly placed as I don't know the traffic light sequence but that is a pedestrian crossing just after it so does the pedestrian crossing go Green every time that light goes red or is it a case that the light will have been on red for a while due to the sequence of lights i.e. out of town traffic goes red, into town traffic and buses turning get a green light and then when that goes to red the pedestrian crossing gets activated which should have given sufficient time for the out of town traffic to clear the crossing. When that light is on Red then surely no-one should be going through that light whilst the pedestrian crossing is on green. Would this be easily solved by 'hatching' the junction meaning that no-one should go through so can't be stuck at the secondary light on red and even if one car is the rest of the junction should be clear.
  13. I will be in. Might be a bit late depending on holidays so I might miss the start of the season
