  1. Terrible service from 52a and 52 to woodhouse tonight on west st - got to stop at before 1030pm and no sign of either 52 - fortunately a reliable 30a turned up at 1105. The 52 bus service has definitely gone from one of the best to one of the worst- shambolic is putting it politely
  2. Hi - after some advice - have house in Sheffield worth about £190k and has 145 years left on lease and we pay £16pa ground rent - was quoted £5k for buying lease plus would have my legal costs about £500 per my solicitor - any thoughts if reasonable or not and/or worth doing? Thanks
  3. The council was already a disaster so let's hope things improve
  4. Lived at top of Blake st in my uni days in mid 80's and had a clapped out escort - started it a few times by taking the hand brake off in second and was in real trouble if not running by half way down! Pub was great then and to be fair still is now - landlord was a polish guy who owned the shop opposite the boozer - great times
  5. Stupid idea by a stupid council finally being removed and a stupid explanation to boot enough said
  6. Hospital appointment letter posted 22 July received today 31 July for appointment 29 July- sorry but that is unacceptable fortunately I knew because took hospital phone call - it may well be just certain areas and indeed south east Sheffield Inc handsworth has job adverts out for new posties
  7. Anyone else having much reduced post deliveries ? Used to get post daily and in handsworth it's now down to seeing a postie on our road twice a week if we're lucky - aware maybe a bit less advertising mail but twice a week service is poor so get your finger out Royal Mail
  8. Interestingly I wrote to all 3 of my local (labour) councillors and asked their opinions on the shalesmoor scheme - 2 replied to say they have sent my request onto Mr Bob Johnson and asked him to reply - surprise surprise no response and the other councillor hasn't replied Also wrote to my mp Clive Betts who to be fair has replied and said he too was surprised by this scheme in this place and was contacting the council for their views/comments I'm not holding out huge hope but I still hold out that eventually the council will realise what a mess they have made of it but there again this is the same council that on the day before the pubs reopened told people not to go in them because covid 19 was hiding in the pubs waiting for them - total numptys
  9. Agree with rjrb - the issue here is that this particular additional cycle lane is inappropriate on the cities arterial ring road especially as the route in question already had a cycle lane and one of the widest footpaths around - bob Jackson and the rest of the council need to have the guts to realise they messed up and reverse this particular change
  10. Good on the opposition councillor for speaking some common sense - as all the sensible posts on here have said it isn't that cycle lanes are a bad idea it's just that in this location it is completely inappropriate and wrong on the city main arterial ring road - and that's without pointing out again there was already a cycle lane, a massive pavement that could be partly used and alternate routes through kelham. Time for SCC and councillor Johnson to have the guts to admit this was plain wrong and change it back
  11. Issue here is there was already a cycle lane and a 20ft wide pavement to the left of the now additional (hopefully temporary) cycle lane - still I'm sure the one cyclist an hour that use it will be pleased and can smile at the hundreds of car drivers stuck in the never ending congestion although guess they wont enjoy the additional pollutant from crawling along cars - that's without mentioning all the money now wasted on improving the ring road recently that has been rendered useless at a stroke by the numptys at SCC . I'm all for cycle lanes where they make sense but the one at shalesmoor is plain daft
  12. Another crass idea from Sheffield council - finally complete some road changes then put barriers up to close it off for at best 10 cyclists an hour and cause absolute chaos - brilliant not
  13. no issue at all paying by card - infact contactless is good for me on many occasions - what i object to is not having the choice what method i can pay with - still i suppose i do have a choice - just dont go to places that are card only - tbh gardeners rest pub next door has far better beer than cutlery works and is half the price!
