  1. he has more in common with Trumpet than he realises :D


    Such as?


    i am grateful that it will not be coming here with the resulting road closures and disruption


    So you're as much a part of the problem as the council are.


    How much will it cost? And what will I get out of it!


    It's not about you.


    Wonder where Gary Verity was born. Anyway they can stick this. Who wants all the roads shutting for a few days so cyclists can bomb through our city. Everyone would be moaning about that so we're better off leaving it to its Leeds lovefest and moving onto something worthwhile.


    Me and many others it seems.


    Less cyclists the better they are like wasp's no body but cyclists want them.

    Queue argumentative cyclists.:rant:


    I have no idea why so many people seem so angry at cyclists. I drive and very rarely cycle but I'd be much happier if everyone else cycled and no one else drove a vehicle.

  2. It’s not that hard getting a licence to sell alcohol nowadays unless the police object.

    Rival business objections or residents saying there are too many off licences are not grounds to deny a licence....


    So why don’t you object to the Council? . The notice should tell you how to make an objection and the closing date for doing so. You’ll then have the opportunity in person to speak to the decision makers at a licensing hearing.


    This ^ was what I was going to say to that ^^.



    Need police to police that and there ain't none round Woodhouse hence all the issues. They may have a clamp down once in a while but that's it


    If people weren't ^&*&*&* then the police wouldn't be needed at all. Many people become &&^&^ when they have drink so don't see any reason to give them more access to booze. Having said that it will now be a sweet shop. Sweets are nice.

  3. If you don't have any luck with ringing Amey, you could use their website or I've found the FixMyStreet app is better for certain things, like this. For those of you having problems of people putting the "wrong" rubbish in their nearby public bins put a sticker on there explaining that that is what their black bin is for. Might also be worth putting Amey's number on said sticker so that other people who are annoyed by it have the number to hand to report it themselves.

  4. So Ofo bikes are going to prosecute vandals damaging their bikes.




    Good for them. I hope they're successful in their private prosecutions & take the offenders to the cleaners because in the normal course of events all that would happen to them is a stern talking to. Make them pay for the damage.


    I've seen one of the Ofo bikes this morning. Someone has chucked one over the railings at Lady's Bridge & it's now sat in a few feet of water.


    Have you reported it?

  5. Personally, I think that the beer range / selection has improved a lot and continuing along that line of development is a great idea; the pub itself is nice.


    That's great to hear. I'm sure that will make someone, in particular, rather happy. Do feel free to comment if you think of anything else.

  6. Hello,


    I've recently become involved with the goings on of The Gardener's Rest pub in Neepsend and was wondering what people thought of the place and if there is anything that can be done to improve it etc.


    For those of you who haven't been and know nothing of it, it's near 92 Burton Street (Home of Peddler's Market) on Neepsend Lane. It's a traditional pub, serving real ales, with a bar billiard table and a very nice, little beer garden that backs onto the river. The pub is now community owned following a crowdfunding appeal last year.


    There isn't much of a budget for any major improvements but I thought I'd see what people thought.

  7. tbh if there were more / bigger bins around the area, more accessible, and more workers emptying them during the days then it wouldn't be as much of an issue...


    how many bins have the council removed throughout the city centre in the last few years? not sure, but I know it's a fair few...


    More bins doesn't necessarily lead to less litter. Read Litterology, the authours studeied this and litterers litter and others don't regardless of the facilities available.


    I picked up the remains of a party at Whirlow Farm earlier this week. It is poor behaviour to leave litter, but as it seems to be a constant problem, perhaps we should all just volunteer help to pick up the litter in our neighbourhoods.


    Lots of organised picks on Sheffield Litter Picker's Facebook page.


    I don't understand why it should be "normal" to leave rubbish at big events.


    It isn't normal but because staff are always employed to pick it up and other people drop it the mentaility of humans is that "a bit more won't make a difference" and often it won't.

  8. I discovered one of my ancestors was a murderer having had one too many beverages, riding his horse from Lincoln to Grantham and shooting his mistress at point blank range. He was one of the first 4 people in the world to be hanged by the long drop method and is buried in the grounds of Lincoln Castle.
