  1. I am 90 years old and use a bus occasionally,i have no objections to pushchairs on a bus but think it should be restricted to 2 chairs at anyone time.Some of these pushchairs are like charriots,if they want to use them on a bus they should get one more suitable,when my kids were young we had a small one and it was always ready folded when we boarded a bus,if you get more than 2 on the bus they tend to block the passageway usually with 3 or 4 shopping bags full hanging from the handles
  2. I was diagnosed as having an x ray on my chest after having a fall,i was called back to NGH for a biopsy and told i had asbestosis I went to Weston Park Hospital every day for a month for radiotherapy,this was 2 years ago and i am now told it is under control and go for a scan very 6 months I was later contacted by SARAG (South Yorkshire Asbestos Victims Across South Yorkshire) 01709360672 and a young lady came to visit me and gave me advice on claiming for compensation,she brought the necessary form with her and completed it all form,all i did was just to sign it A short time after i received a letter telling me i had been awarded a pension for life,it depends how high you are assessed at so would suggest you contacted SARAG ---------- Post added 16-11-2014 at 19:11 ---------- I would suggest that you contacted SARAG (South Yorkshire Asbestos Victims Support Group)they were a big help to me after being told i had asbestosis You can contact them on 01707 360 672 ---------- Post added 16-11-2014 at 19:12 ---------- I would suggest that you contacted SARAG (South Yorkshire Asbestos Victims Support Group)they were a big help to me after being told i had asbestosis You can contact them on 01707 360 672 ---------- Post added 16-11-2014 at 19:13 ---------- I would suggest that you contacted SARAG (South Yorkshire Asbestos Victims Support Group)they were a big help to me after being told i had asbestosis You can contact them on 01707 360 672 ---------- Post added 16-11-2014 at 19:44 ---------- ---------- Post added 16-11-2014 at 19:13 ---------- [/color]I would suggest that you contacted SARAG (South Yorkshire Asbestos Victims Support Group)they were a big help to me after being told i had asbestosis You can contact them on 01707 360 672
  3. My wife recently went into a home and I am now entitled to a 25% reduction in my council tax My son called in the office to inform them and spent over an hour there But they still stop the full amount Typical Sheffield Council
  4. I went to a Gwen Rigby dancing school in the late 1940,s it was somewhere just off Carterknowle Rd from what I remember Would this be any connection to Brenda Rigby,We worked with her brother and several of us lads went there for lessons I think we paid 30 shillings for 6 lessons
  5. anyone remember Pears and Frost at bottom of the station steps,there was also Goffin,s furniture shop ,Fowlers tobacco shop and Fred Hallet,s Cosy Cafe with the huge teapot in the window
  6. My wife and self made a will in 1993 and recently decided to make a new will as things have changed since making the last one. We paid £168 for the two wills which I thought was quite reasonable considering the solicitor visited my home as my wife is housebound The solicitor told me we should consider taking a power of attourney as well and quoted us £2,400 which I considered pricey. I have since made enquiries and found I can make one myself that will cost £130,do I have to take the powers of attourney with the solicitor
  7. During the war years i often queued down Duke Street for horsemeat when i was on my afternoon week My mother queued at Gebhards on the Manor Centre for chitterling and i would take it to work for my packing up. I had it that often i aquired the name of Baggy The tripe man (Rueben Short) used to come round with his horse and dray on a Thursday tea time and we had tripe and onions for tea on a Friday (Best meal of the week)
  8. Does anyone know what is happening with the remains of the building,all new window frames have been fitted,lots of rumours going round but no one seems to know for sure
  9. The Burngreave conservative Club was at the corner junction of Burngreave Rd, and Melrose Rd there use to be a bowling green on lower sideactors surgery is there now.THe Club has been closed many years now
  10. The Medical centre was on what i think was Norroy street alongside the Lord Nelson pub It was Known as the CCS (casualty clering station)Firth Brown had their own ambulance during the was years I believe it closed shortly after the VJ day There was also an ambulance rom on Carilsle St just past the Corner Pin pub and several ambulance rooms in the time offices at various gates
  11. I took a sovereign to the shop at bottom of King St and was told it was,nt a sovereign but he offered £125 so i went to UK Bullion on Ecclesall Rd and they gave me £225 so keep away from King St
  12. My father worked at Pears @ Frost who were situated next to the Wicker Arches,they were corn merchants and the place was over run by rats.they hired Welcome Gillatt one week end in the late 1930,s and he caught around 200 rats over the week end My Dad set traps before closing at night and first job the next morning was to go round the traps with an iron poker
  13. I have been supporting Sheffield united since 1935 and saw them lose 1-0 to Arsenal in the 1936 Cup Final(Ted Drake was the goalscorer) I believe that one of the reason,s why Hagan did,nt sign for Wednesday was because he needed a minor operation on his foot so he could go on the FA tour to Australia One player i hav,nt seen mentioned was little Bobby Reid,who played on the left wing The final game of the 38/39 season was against Tottenham and United had to win to gain promotion to the 1st division,United had the ball in the net in the first minute and won the game 6-1. That was the best team i have seen during my time in following the blades
  14. I have been going to scotts since i was 13 (am now in my 80,s) the price was increased when the shop was renovated after the floods,like a lot of others who go there i wait for Bob even though there is an empty chair.iI used to go there with my Dad then we went to the Cosy Cafe for a cuppa
