  1. Chantry Brewery (Rotherham) doing home delivery, up to 15 mile radius.
  2. It's going to be a KFC and Costa. Details are on the planning portal on the SCC website, under reference 18/01835/FUL.
  3. Sounds like the BBMF Dakota, which did a flypast of Barnsley last Wednesday afternoon: https://www.raf.mod.uk/aircraft/dakota/ Not a bomber, but historically significant nonetheless.
  4. The Airbus Beluga transports fly over Sheffield fairly often and FlightRadar24 shows that one did so this morning. They fit the description given. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f9/Airbus_A300-600ST_Airbus_Industries_(AIB)_%22Join_us%22_Beluga_3_F-GSTC_-_MSN_765_(9741143612).jpg
  5. I've seen a flyer for this, it's on Saturday 3rd December, 10am - 3pm
  6. It's a great idea, but only until (as happened on my old 900) the shift linkage failed at 5pm on Christmas Eve, giving me no option but to leave it parked outside for three days with the key still in the ignition:o The car was still perfectly driveable too, as it was only reverse that couldn't be selected, thankfully the impromptu security device I applied (a beanie hat over the ignition column to hide the key:D) sufficed and it wasn't nicked, as it could very easily have been. My current Saab, a 9-3, doesn't have this feature though and I do miss it a bit.
  7. Someone once gave me a set of these as a present. They were stolen within 48 hours of being fitted. Never, ever had a plastic one nicked though.
  8. The parking cones were presumably to do with the repainting of the yellow lines, which was taking place when I left for work just after eight o'clock this morning; they don't seem to have got very far though, by the looks of it... The single yellows have more or less disintegrated on both sides of the road now, leading to a noticeable increase in people failing to notice (or simply ignoring) the time restrictions of late. Although in fairness it's not just parked cars that cause the delays - the traffic on this stretch of road in the mornings has been getting increasingly worse for several years.
  9. Since the introduction of RTI the P46 has effectively become obsolete so isn't officially used any more, hence you won't find it on the HMRC website - it's been replaced by the "Starter Checklist", which can be downloaded from the gov.uk website: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/374305/starterchecklist.pdf
  10. Approximately 1:50pm, dependent on weather etc. Your best bet is to keep checking Twitter on the day: https://twitter.com/xh558
  11. If you head north along the A614, just after Austerfield there's a roundabout, the second exit of which (signed as a dead end) takes you onto a road which runs along the perimeter fence, parallel to the runway: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.459983,-1.006094,3a,75y,4.96h,72.74t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1su-TLLRI2WdpXkJjgWJyuSg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  12. I'm usually too busy trying to dodge all the traffic cones and bits of plastic barrier that have been left sticking out (whilst also trying not to get my nearside wing mirror taken off by passing vehicles) to notice the road surface.
  13. It's all part of a scheme aimed at improving reliability of the 52 bus route by helping to ease traffic congestion along Handsworth Road. The new part-time traffic lights on the Parkway slip road are part of it too. The current works are to widen the carriageway in order to accommodate the right-turn lane which Bruce_Shark mentioned. Plans can be seen here: http://sheffielddemocracy.moderngov.co.uk/documents/s15744/Appendix%20B.pdf EDIT: Beat me to it!
  14. There's an old tram pole still standing at Handsworth, at the end of St. Joseph's Road opposite the church.
