  2. My entry has now gone - good luck to all of you!
  3. Im entered into the half marathon but have a number of stress fractures in my foot which means I cant run it. If anyone wants an entry for half the price let me know - we can transfer the details to yours easlily online. I have the envelope through but havent even opened it yet!! I haope someone can get some use out of it! PM me if interested
  4. I can only comment on Hillsborough branches of both Blundells and haybrook. Sold through Haybrook and bought through Blundells and have to say Haybrook were great but Blundells needed chasing every other day to do what they said they were going to. I put my house on in May 2010 and was in new house in July 2010 - Im not sure its down to estate agents but sold to the third viewer in first week and that was that. The speed of transaction from thereonin though was down to daily calls to Haybrook and ringing Blundells myself rather than waiting for Haybrook to - even at one point going to the house I was buying to deliver the documents for signing and collecting them the next day (it was a strange situation but made it happen pretty quickly which im sure wouldnt have done if left to their own devices.) Seems I am in the minority but I was happy with Haybrook - and hope not to have to sell/ buy a house again so dont have to deal with any again!!!
  5. The focus of the posts seems to be alcohol but I think entertainment is licensable too - so if as Skate says they will give beer away for free, this would be fine but only if sitting in a room with no live or recorded music!! Police are the only ones who can object to temporary event notices and imagine they very well would - ooh and also confused by the presumption in Skates post that if the place is taken over they 'would be granted a licence' - well not necessarily, surely the Police or anyone else could again object and the licensing council make a decision, which may include grant, but might not? Its all a sad mess and I feel for the people who have bookings but if I were you I would be getting your own advice rather than listening to posters on here, including Skate, or the Star who couldnt get things right if they tried!
  6. Just wandered into town for sales mooch and division street is cordoned off from carver street to just after lloyds with police car on one of The streets off it. Other than the car no police presence at all. Anyone know what's happenned- and I hope it's not more drinking related trouble like the other night on carver street- I sing the praises on sheffields safe city centre and hope that can continue!
  7. I have always used Shaun Fitzakerly (sorry if spelled wrong). He replastered our old house and redid every ceiling in the new one. Couldnt recommend him enough - his number is 07759138222
  8. can anyone recommend someone who will fit a IKEA kitchen? There will also be plastering to be done and possibly some electric bits and bobs - mainly once old one is removed. Not a massive kitchen but theres a gas hob to go in too. Hoping to get it fitted mid May. Any recommendations appreciated!
  9. Yeah how will this improve traffic - I can see it will be better for pedestrians but the loop at the top of Malin Bridge/ Loxley New Road is going to be awful - and its going to be harder to filter onto this loop from Rivelin, Stannington, and to a lesser extent, Loxley with the pedestrian crossings. That bloody bus still stops on Loxley New Rd in the mornings and cars parked on there stop both lanes being usable. And since when do/ will/ can the Council implement a scheme such as this in 6 months before the school opens? Surely work on this should have started when works on the school started?
  10. If you are in the catchment for these schools you will find yourself near the top of the waiting list, if not the top. Theres alot of movement with allocations at this time and you might find yourself with a place as someone else takes one elsewhere. Still you can, and should, appeal explaining the situation
  11. surely First cover the wall on their insurance as it was their vehicle that caused damage regardless of driver and First insurance then try to chase idiots (sorry 'pranksters') who did it- its not for teh homeowners insurance to cover IMO
  12. ooh would you let me know what they say? Thank you
  13. So postponed now to 12th December - which I (as Im sure many others) cant do. Does anyone have any idea how we get in touch with the organisers to see whats what - the website information is very sparse!
  14. I can only comment as a veggie and on the set menu but cheese on toast for starter and cheese sarnie as a main was hardly thoughtful, innovative or inspirational!! (they obv werent called cheese on toast or cheese sarnie but thats what they are in effect!)
  15. Its a great place - finally I can have a soya hot choc in Hillsborough! Keep up the good work!
  16. fro the pic on star website it looks to me like she is already pregnant - hope Social Services take baby away before she even gets to look at it
  17. From talking to staff at current mags court they tell me that they only moved into that building temporarily while the old Court building was refurbed....and 15+ years on theyre still there! Apparently there have been a number of pubs interested over the years, more recently Wetherspoons (obviously), who cant do much with it as the interior is listed including the jurers bit, public gallery, advocats benches, judges desk so they couldnt fint a way to work round it.....why not just turn it back in to the Mags Court as it seems this is what its built for -- and, as all have commented, its a beautiful building!

  19. Its been a long time since I got on a bus but after moving to Loxley wondered if there was a service that would take me up to Stannington without having to go into town/ hillsboro bus station to change. i could walk to bottom of Stannington Road but have a broken ankle at mo so v difficult! Is there such a service or should I just get a cab?!
  20. coop - either crookes or stannington dont shread them and will let folk have them. dont know about others!
  21. Please bear in mind your catchment area school though when making your preferences. Is you dont put it down and your 3 preferences are full you may be allocated an entirely different school - read the Guide for Parents, its pretty useful. Unfortunately you cant choose a school for your child, just make 3 preferences!
  22. We put ours up for sale in Hillsborough with Haybrook and sold in 12 days - I like that they sort out contracts early on so if sale takes a little longer there really should be no delays in completing. We have exchanged contracts today - 10 weeks after putting it up for sale! The house we are buying was on with Blundells and they have been horrendous - saying house empty when its not, taking 10 days to arrange viewing and when tell them not to bother anymore get call within 30 minutes with one, rude and almost obstructive. Think its all down to local offices but for s6 haybrook get my vote!
  23. I have bought a large rabbit hutch from a fella in Stockport. To save dismantling it I was thinking of hiring a van to collect but wondered if it would be a similar price to get a man with van - any ideas on how much it would be? Can go any evening or sat Or was thinking I could maybe get a cheaper deal with van hire co if picked van up at say 5 on thursday and brought it back by 9 the next morning - any recommendations?
  24. I knew someone would know the answer - thank you
