  1. I don't think it should be ignored, by the way, I am just not sure what the answer is that doesn't cost money. The mess in my local park was sprayed pink last summer, with some bio-degradable chalk spary paint, and that seemed to highlight the problem literally and reduce it a tad too.
  2. You have to catch people to prosecute people and spending masses of money looking for people seems self defeating. Am sure they could campaign to highlight the problem but anyone who doesn't already know that they should clean up their dog's doings probably isn't going to listen.
  3. I won't be there but might be worth mentioning on their Facebook page "Sheffield Litter Pickers".
  4. I've heard very good reports too, it is a shame that, rather weirdly, none of their rice is gluten free. No idea what they do to it.
  5. It's an inefficient, overly complicated set up.
  6. Is that not a flaw in the system? If it was controlled by the council then they could charge (maybe not as much as a private contractor), make money and recycle a lot more than they do currently and a reduction in fly tipping would, to soe extent, occur as a consequence.
  7. Where do businesses take their rubbish if they don't take them to the tip?
  8. There will be lots of separate bags rather than a single big one. I don't think anyone who will be going is under any illusions about the task in hand. Feel free to join in.
  9. If anyone does want to raise the profile of the mess of the city, do a litter pick and some other activities linked to that, then The Sheffield Litter Picker Group is arranging an event for Keep Britain Tidy's Big Clean Up. They will meet at Firth Park Clocktower Pavillion, S5 6WS at 1pm on Saturday the 3rd of March. The first 100 helpers will be given a litter picker for keeps which aims to try and get more people picking where they live. They will proceed from there in various directions with the aim of being visible, tidying a decent sized area and getting some press coverage for their efforts.
  10. I wouldn't consider it subsidising a business. Why should a business have to pay to get rid of rubbish if the council and its contractors ultimately dispose of it anyway. The reasons given above suggest why we should subsidise it even if that was the case. Why don't you ask the council via a freedom of Information request?

  11. Yes, more needs to be done. It is one of the main reasons they proposed reducing the M1 to 50mph for the stretch that runs past the area. Not sure of any other proposals.
  12. I went just before Christmas for a comedy gig. There was about 14 of us in there, the comedy wasn't great but the venuw with the weird curtains and old school living room thing was interesting and I thought it worked well. Nice to see them trying to do some a little different even if no one else is quite sure what that is. I think venues can do whatever they want and don't need defining as a gig or comedy etc venue.
  13. The venue is now run as Pot, Kettle, Black. You will barely notice the difference.
  14. From what I know of the incident that got it closed there was very little the venue could have done so don't really see why it ahould be punished. Sadly there are a fair few tools in the world and these things happen.
  15. The carvery was what you'd expect for the price you paid. It was food, it was edible.
  16. I'm not sure if you dislike pretentious people or undesirables or if you consider them to be one in the same. Service staff doing servicing seems like a decent plan to me. I'm lost.
  17. I have been for food there once and it wouldn't be my choice if I ever went there again.
  18. The negativity of some Sheffield folk is really, really dull. ^
  19. There is a Russian film festival showing at The Showroom Cinema very soon if that's of interest to anyone.
  20. Does anybody know anybody who could provide keyboard lessons for my 11 year old niece in the Woodhouse area please?
  21. A friend of mine is putting on a free party for the older members of society next Saturday at The Workstation in town. A lot of effort has gone into it and a a fair bit of money but she’s now looking for referrals for people who might like to attend. Do you have an older, friend, relative or neighbour who doesn’t get out and about too much and who might like to come along? Send me a message for details if so. Thanks.
  22. Steeliacs blog covers most places. The Chinese (Hua Wei maybe) on Glossop Road has a separte GF menu. The Devonshire pub marks all its items for allergies, The Frog and Parrot is woeful for it, Las Iguanas has a seperate menu, The Forum marks all of their stuff. Walkabout has an allergens menu. Etc.
