  1. The University and its AMRC offshoot https://www.amrc.co.uk/news/covid-19-the-ventilator-challenge
  2. There was no full Erioca festival last year but they did run the Eroica 500 , limted to the first 500 and with a stricter interpretation of the vintage rules.Did it on my restored 1980 Claud Butler ive owned since new . 65 miles, great day out . Them Staffordshire Hills give Derbyshire a run for the money
  3. Roterham has AMP1 site , AMRC with Boeing, the McLaren composites centre, the rapidly expanding new town at Waverley, the redevelopment of the Orgreave site, the planned retail centre bus station , church and school and a big wedge of Objective 1 restructuring cash from the EU for the town centre. That little outpost of Rotherham is becoming expensive to develop in now as land value has gone up . It will now be mostly housing and retail, Much of the next phase will be on the Sheffield side, the old airport where Boeing's new factory has been built. Now if only there was some decent public transport infrastructure linking it to Sheffield & Rotherham. As that’s what is hampering development now. Crying out for a tram or at least a railway station at Waverly.
  4. Bumping this old thread . The New post office in Walkley is in Beeches shop . It opens on Monday 9th March . Its been a long journey to get this far so please use it
  5. Its only a temporary measure until the new pavement parking orders come through. There has been one particular offender who blocks the cycle route on Sheaf St everyday its been a long time since the tro was first raised http://democracy.sheffield.gov.uk/mgIssueHistoryHome.aspx?IId=19383&Opt=0
  6. Had a parcel for next day delivery from Wiggle bike parts . They use Hermes. Dispatched on Friday for Saturday delivery according to Wiggle but still no sign of it . Hermes Tracking says they picked it up on Saturday , it reached their local depot on Monday, still not yet out for delivery on Tuesday. I did explain to wiggle that I pay for their premium service when I need the parts next day. It was stated at the time of order that it would come next day. Next time Ill just use my LBS if they have the stock.
  7. Try Gerry at Gerrys bakery in Walkley. If not him he may know where. Also Pete Thorley Dickinson, Camm St bakery currently baking at Joespresso in Walkley . He may know where to get some https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Product-Service/Camm-Street-Bakery-467067827078858/
  8. friend of mine got stuck for 2/12 hours going down to Wickes from Walkley. Seems an amber warning is not quite enough for some.
  9. Technically nearly a 1/3 of Sheffield is in the Peak District national park
  10. and https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/top-law-firm-eyes-move-into-sheffield-city-centre-437100
  11. Bit chaotic down there with that grey to green part 2 work but the Dorothy Pax still seems to be going strong . I thought that CMS announced that they were moving to the city centre months ago? https://sheffieldcityregion.org.uk/project/grey-green-phase-2-castlegate/
  12. Mines done. 10 minute wait at the pharmacy on Greenhow St in Walkley, no appointment. I'm on the free list (chronic lung condition) but they were doing paid for ones as well as they had plenty of stock . They go through the form first to see if there anyway they can do you for free before they offer the £11.50 option . It may be better to try a pharmacy first than get an appointment at the GP
  13. Matchbox didn't start till 1953. Possibly you mean Dinky toys that started in the 30s? I've bought old toy cars via AE Dowse on Scotland St but it seems they've gone now and merged with Sheffield Auctions https://sheffieldauctiongallery.com/ Or have a quick word with Sheffield Transport models on London road, though I think he's more aimed at trains.
  14. You do realise that if violence from dissident republicans spreads from the border area all the way up to Belfast then the next obvious target for them will be London and other major cities on the mainland . Having been at Heathrow Airport during and IRA mortar attack I don't relish a return to that.
  15. If you have to drive and don't want any hassle driving round looking for on street parking then use the Q park . Its literally opposite the children's hospital and has nearly 600 spaces .
