  1. I'm not convinced there are more rats in Graves Park than any other area in Sheffield which has water nearby. I walk and cycle a lot. In the last few months I've seen rats in Lowedges Park (Greenhill) by the Don on the 5 Weirs Trail, both canals, Botanical Gardens, near the sheaf on little london road etc.. I can only recall seeing one or two rats around the graves park ponds / waterfall woods. Maybe this thread should be renamed Sheffield Rats? It would be impossible to close the park. But maybe the cafe should be closed which would cut down on the number of users who visit just to socialise rather than exercise etc.. Littering is the main issue.
  2. i had a cupboard under the stairs which originally would have been a pantry but I used it for washer, dryer, freezer. I've just converted into a downstairs cloakroom and then a separate understairs cupboard for the washer and other odds and ends. It's been time consuming but very worthwhile for older visitors. Materials haven't been a fortune and the odd bits of labour (plasterer £100, spark £100) have been very reasonable. I guess the only thing to be aware for yours is currently you'll be getting light through the stairs - so you might need to add extra lights to compensate.
  3. Was it Dobson's? (although this might be a good few years ago now..)
  4. Hi was it the older marks they're after or is it all they're targeting? thanks
  5. I leased a car in 2006 as it seemed like a good deal but it was only for 2 years. Prior to this and after I've always bought but kept them for 5 or 6 years. Overall leasing seemed cheaper however the only negative for me was it had a "fixed end" date this meant I had to make sure my new car would be there by the time the lease car went back.
  6. I love mine too. It's just not big enough and would love a bigger garage.
  7. I agree Woodview - actually I'd say this should be mandatory. And I also don't mean just working for government departments etc..
  8. A generalisation I know but usually I find I have to give directions to Sheffield taxi drivers. I never have to do this in London. There are ones in Sheffield with decent knowledge but these seem to be fewer and fewer. Last night I got a taxi into town and the driver asked me which was the best way to go! Later on whilst sat in traffic I said aren't you allowed to use the bus lanes! So in short I'd say the council needs to toughen up their test. I reckon a lot of customers get taken on longer more expensive journeys than necessary.
  9. Alex Are there people in your company who offer to be mentors? Maybe ask your manager if this is available. One tool I think would help would be 360 degree feedback on your performance and behaviour - asking questions such as "what do I well?", what should I do less of? what should I stop doing? etc.. Get this from peers, your team, managers etc.. Given your role is about generating IP then be careful about what you talk about outside of the company. There maybe confidentiality clauses. If your company are willing to fund external coaches/mentors then there are companies (such as NewHabits in Nether Edge) which can help. Best Wishes
  10. Surely that depends on how big the owners garden is? Does feeding a cat mean they're not likely to use that house's garden as a toilet?
  11. No it's true. They offered more than the Skoda dealers in Sheffield and Chesterfield. Yes perhaps you'd get slightly more by selling privately but it would definitely take more time, which is precious when you're dealing with a deceased estate and grief etc..
  12. Back in 2012 I sold an Octavia dsg with 10k miles which was less than 18 months year old. I shopped around and in the end got the best deal from we buy any car.
  13. I did papers in the late 70s for Thompson's post office at the top of Meadowhead. 90p for two rounds on Sunday morning around Little Norton. I also did Sheffield Trader which I think was fortnightly and paid 1p per paper.
  14. The event you organise in Lowedges Park is fantastic. The music from this one today in Graves Park was ridiculously loud. Sorry for all those disappointed kids and wasted cash.
