  1. Presumably the store could have had their security remove the protesters, but allowed them the time to make a peaceful protest. Freedom of speech, lots of people are striking, protesting currently over pay pension and clean air zones. I think teachers striking and children missing lessons is a bigger problem to report than a peaceful protest in a supermarket. After schools closing for COVID hasn't this generation of school children had enough disruption to their education. Perhaps teachers could protest outside of the lesson time, maybe on a weekend or a teacher training day 😏.
  2. I work on Ecclesall Road and go up Cemetery Road each morning. I think the extra traffic/ congestion is due to roadworks on Nappier Street meaning people can use it as a cut through to drop back on to Ecclesall Road near Champs. I drive into Sheffield city centre from Woodhouse and don't think the clear air zone has had much on an impact on rush hour traffic from my experience. Still seems to be as much volume of traffic on the roads.
  3. Through my work we use Christelle Landscaping for Ebenezer Apartments at Walkley to do some grounds maintenance. Reliable and friendly service. http://www.christellelandscapes.co.uk/
  4. 9/10 Just watched again I Walk The Line - The Johnny Cash Story. Can't say I'm a Johnny Cash fan, but I love music and Joaquin Phoenix and Reece Witherspoon both give a mesmerising performance, very watchable.
  5. I heard Chris Rea - Driving Home For Xmas while driving to work the morning. I didn't turn off the station, quite enjoyed it 🎅🎄
  6. Lee Mack Mabel Anne-Marie George Clooney Rob Brydon Gaynor Faye Jodie Cromer
  7. Watched the new series of Brassic, very good. Currently watching Maid on Netflix, very captivating, takes you on a journey with the main character 👍
  8. That's the best you can do be there for people. There is no perfect gift, the fact that you care, keep an eye on your neighbour and he knows you are there if he needs you will mean so very much to him , even if he hasn't the words at the moment to say it to you. Hang in there.
  9. Having lost my mum in December last year. I would say the best gift would be to share a memory you have of your neighbour's wife. It is important to think our loved ones meant something to others. If you have a story or memory of the deceased lady to share, I'm sure that would mean more than a gift.
  10. Hi, I am sorry for your loss. I didn't come across your brother on the Sheffield Forum but it is sad to lose someone close, I lost my mum in December and I am still coming to terms with it. I hope some people on the Forum have memories to share with you. Take care.
  11. I enjoy them, just finished Dead Man's Time book 9 in the series. Stumbled on the author by accident my husband was bought one of the series but he doesn't read novels. I read it and was hooked on Roy Grace. They are easy reading and I like the ongoing story of Roy and his life that is the background to each particular story. They are comfortable reading well worth a try.
  12. We started this last night and watched the first two. I watched all the Desperate Housewives series in the past so it's easy watching with a bit of nostalgia for what came before. They seem a captivating cast and we have been a bit at a loss for things to watch the last couple of weeks so I think we'll see the series through.
  13. It's a very sad state of affairs especially for the Lyceum where you are packed tightly to watch a performance and if you introduced social distance there I doubt they'd cover the cost of the performance. I had a booking cancelled there donated 10% of the value used the credit to re-book for 31-10-20 paid a few pounds more only to have them shut down until next year. No one has been in touch to refund my cash. I don't want to demand it if it means they close down permanently. A terrible time for them. If you can travel on a bus or train with a mask is it really much different to go to the theatre and watch the performance wearing a mask for a couple of hours ? Can't they make it work will restrictions be much different next year ?
  14. Glad you got sorted, it's difficult to speak with them at the best of times, same with HMRC at the moment I held for 45 minutes the other week only to get cut off. I wrote to them in the end, I'm fairly patient but that on hold music makes me twitch after a while.
  15. I was at Thornbridge 1982 to 1986 maiden name Rachel Stones I have two older brother also went to Thornbridge John and Aidan Stones.
