  1. After I've fallen off the ladder!😄 Thanks.....but I don't fancy working from a ladder!
  2. Can anyone recommend someone who can do this please? Heeley Green area. Thanks in advance.
  3. attach a hook to a silver Victorian threepenny bit to make in to a necklace! Can anyone help or know of someone that might be able too? Thanks
  4. Having a clear out today and I know I have 2 laptops and probably 3 mobiles. Is there anywhere I can take them locally? Do places like Currys take them or do you have to have purchased new items from them. Do charity shops take them? Thanks Ooops posted twice. Please delete as I don't see how too!
  5. Can't reach them. 5 years ago I was able to trim them back as they were lower and not so big. I put the trimmings back over the fence on to the council land. A neighbour called the council who came round and told me that before throwing over the fence I should have called and 'offered them back'!
  6. There are trees to the rear of my house between me and my neighbour that are on council land. For many years they were maintained but nothing has been done for a good few years now. My garden faces almost due south and should have the sun nearly all day (what little we have of it) This year, for the first time the sun did not get in to my garden because of the height and density of the trees and they are overhanging the garden by a long way. Nothing grows in my garden, the lawn is like a swamp because the sun never gets to dry it out. I have my kitchen light on virtually all the time because it is so dark. It never used to be like this. Who do I contact at Sheffield City Council please? I am assuming that they have an obligation as it blocks my sunlight! Thanks
  7. Why didn't I think of that? I lived there long enough!😀 Maybe some repair work. I have discovered that she followed her sister Kate Constance Prior who married Samuel Johnson in Sheffield in 1892. Kate also died in Sheffield January 1953, but I don't know which cemetery she is buried in!
  8. Hi John Many thanks for all of that. On the 1891 census she is with her family aged 13. On the 1901 she is married to Charles Henry Flint who is a 'Stone Dresser'. Not sure if that would involve him travelling what would be a long distance then. I know that her family stayed in Woodstock so it was not her family's work that caused her to leave. Her sister is my great grandmother. Looks like Parsonage Street is still there, but no 31 may have been demolished.
  9. Doing some family history and have discovered that a great grand aunt is buried in Sheffield General Cemetery. I've been looking at the burial research page and see that there is a CD available to purchase. I then realised that my laptop no longer has a CD drive so no point in buying it! And the 'Contact us' link does not seem to work on the Research page. Does anyone have the CD to confirm that she is there? Her name is Edith Ellen FLINT nee Prior. BIRTH 26 FEB 1879 • Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England DEATH 2 APRIL 1941 • Sheffield, Yorkshire West Riding, England I would then be happy to make a donation to Sheffield General Cemetery Trust to try and locate the grave. I'm also curious as to how a young girl 120 miles away aged 20 might have met someone from Sheffield around about 1900. Thanks
  10. I have an issue with condensation and mould. Can anyone recommend someone who might be able to fix the problem please? Thanks
  11. It is absolutely bloody amazing, such a change from that old shoddy looking place. I could have spent all day looking at stuff there and the staff are incredibly pleasant and helpful, not that they shouldn't be! I'll be a a regular now. ---------- Post added 16-12-2017 at 11:23 ---------- Sorry..I forgot to look. But take a trip down there it's amazing. ---------- Post added 16-12-2017 at 11:25 ---------- If the rest of this development is going to be as good as the new K H Oriental supermarket it is going to be bloody wonderful. ---------- Post added 16-12-2017 at 11:28 ---------- ---------- Post added 16-12-2017 at 11:29 ---------- I didn't know that Ozmens had a BIG supermarket at the end of John Street. That's also worth a visit. Much, much bigger than the one on London Road.
  12. Hopefully I'm going down later...will have a look for you.
  13. Thanks...looks like it moved just around the corner!
