  1. I have always followed the plans for the Retail Quarter since moving to Sheffield in 2003. They were talking about a new John Lewis store for the city back then and after all the years of waiting, they decide that the people of Sheffield are not worthy of a brand new, state of the art store. No, only other countless cities, like Leeds, York, Leicester, etc, are worthy of this. Refurbishing the existing store is simply nowhere good enough. The building is not fit for purpose. The car park is so outdated. Leeds is the example that this city should be following. Their store is fantastic. The Council leaders can smile in the newspaper but they know deep down that Sheffielders are being shortchanged. If they are not going to move the store, they should demolish it and give us brand new one on the same site. That is the least we deserve.
  2. Hi For all sports enthusiasts the Hallamshire Round Table is organising a Sportsman's charity dinner in aid of St Luke's hospice. The event will be on 21st March at the Holiday Inn Rotherham. There will be a three course meal with an after dinner speech by Seth Bennet, sports journalist, previously of BBC Radio Sheffield, now Radio 5 live:- http://www.hallamshire.roundtable.co.uk/news/673/local-sportsman-dinner/ Tickets are £30 per head. For every seven purchased, eighth is free. Come along for a fun evening!
  3. Hi I can highly recommend the following chap called Tim at:- http://www.iphone-repair-sheffield.co.uk/ My wife's iPhone screen cracked really badly after it was dropped about a month ago. He dealt with it efficiently and she was a very happy woman. No problems at all now. He charged £50-00. ?
  4. Good morning all! Haven't posted on the forum for ages but feel very strongly about this issue so thought I would chip in. I am not an aviator, just resident of this great city since 2003, having moved down from Glasgow. I agree with a lot of the comments. Sheffield, perhaps, its civic leaders are partly to blame, has always seemed to look backwards rather than forwards. It has favoured conservatism over dynamism and innovation. That's why other cities have raced on ahead leaving it behind. The Retail Quarter is one fine example, although, touch wood, the Council finally seems to have put its foot down and Sheffield looks now likely to get a new retail quarter that a city of its size and it's residents truly deserve. Similarly, England's fourth largest city should have its own airport which will be a crucial for business growth and investment. We are, dare I say it now in a global market where connectivity at all levels matters. This not only means Internet connectivity but air connectivity too. If we want people with money from across the world to see Sheffield as 'open for business' and decide to invest here, they need to be able to get here easily, and that does not mean Doncaster/Sheffield or Manchester. Anyone I ask is also fed up of having to traipse all the way to Manchester if they want to fly anywhere of note. We need to think long-term and all the benefits a functioning city airport could bring, investment, jobs, prosperity, easier commutes both domestically and internationally. So please let's not throw away a valuable resource that is the runway (which by the way is not too short) but use it to our advantage by supporting private investors who want to make Sheffield City Airport alive and kicking once again. For those of you who have not signed the petition yet, I urge you to please do so. It's at 3500 but 5000 signatures are needed to make the council take notice. http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/sheffieldcityairport ???✈ ---------- Post added 20-01-2013 at 12:46 ---------- Good morning all!

  6. Hello all! I am excited to read about the plans for further development of the Kelham Island area in the Telegrah today. Apparently eco-friendly state of the art housing is being planned by a company that has already had success with such developments in Leeds(http://www.greenhouseleeds.co.uk/). I have always liked this old industrial area of the city and have felt it is ripe for further development. I hope this will be a catalyst to transform the area into a vibrant hub with new businesses, restaurants, cafes, art galleries, etc whilst retaining its industrial charm. Like most plans in Sheffield, I hope they actually happen and come to fruition in the near future! What do others think?
  7. Having read through this thread i find it really scary that people are sniffing about private property and looking out for scrap metal that they are not entitled to. Thankyou to the person for pointing this alarming practice. I equally find toffee 66 stupid and very pointless rants esp against cyclone equally disturbing. Why so angry toffee66?:loopy: Go out for a walk or get laid or something and take your aggression elsewhere. Please leave this thread for those of us who like to read common sense and intelligent statements!
  8. So what if they are bigger?? Nottingham, York, Oxford, Guildford, Brighton, Bath are all smaller in somes cases, very much smaller and they all have bustling centres with a lovely mix of high street chains providing all essentials and small quirky and interesting boutiques for something different. Its really down to what somebody said earlier Sheffielders are just TIGHT! Stop blaming Meadowhall its really the miserliness of the residents that is to blame.
  9. Attitude! One of many points is illustrated by its attitude towards Meadowhall. How can so many people in England 4th largest city moan so much about one shopping mall. London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester have actually more than one out of centre malls and they still have thriving buzzing city centres. I can't even bring myself to say Sheffield has a city centre, but whatever, it is no way able to offer a fraction of what the above citie's can in terms of shops, restaurants, civic buildings of hitorical and architectural note, museums, galleries etc... And yet it still begrudges the inhabitants one shopping mall. Wtf does it want people to go???? Seems to me that Sheffielders would make do with village grocery store, because thats good enough for them.
  10. YES !!!!!!!!!!!!! and has done so since I set foot here 6 years ago. I moved here reluctantly since my husband got a job here and have been itching to leave ever since . Nothing in the intervening years has caused me to change my opinion of it No amount of token 'regeneration' can gloss over the fact that this is a very backward thinking ( and smugly so) "relishing in its own parochialism" depressing town. Compared to Glasgow, Edinburgh, London and Leeds it is miles behind. These places have a forward thinking , progressive energy that makes them the air postively tingle with progress and oppurtunity. You feel that they want to move forward not just on a national scale but want to compete with other european and global counterparts. Sheffield has a defensive heart attack being simply compared to Leeds:roll: There is no thinking on a big scale. I have never experienced A place that is so deludedly self assured. Instead of asking "what can we do better?" "What can we do to justify the title of a city?" All I sense is "my God aren't we great" And if I hear one more time -only 5 mins from the peak district !! in its favour I'll:gag: Sorry I don't mean to offend native Sheffielders. I would just like to see Englands 4th largest city to get out more and learn and progress by looking at what others are achieving. I think the people of this city deserve it because they are lovely but they need to expect more insted of being content with their lot.
  11. Thanks so much for all of you who have taken the time to reply, but unfortunately we are still without internet and tv. The situation is getting ridiculous with no straight answer at all from the call centres. Think I shall be paying a visit to the Attercliffe office
