  1. Arena - are you doing June 28th as well?
  2. There's a stall in the Crystal Peaks market - they have an ace selection - some very old, rare one's! Worth a look!
  3. One of the traders, who used to be downstairs selling retro stuff, is now called The Indie Arcade and is just up the road on Scotland Street.
  4. Hillsborough Arena car boot is cancelled today - they've posted it on their Facebook page.
  5. Yes maybe many festivals are held in parks and gardens but as this is the first big festival held in THIS park and totally around the duck pond I don't see this as a stupid comment.
  6. The road wasn't closed after the event. We saw a bus go up the road within the hour after. Also so much for stopping people from the festival parking on the street, there was a car and a van on our road all day, both were used by people coming out of the park. Then they both drove off, again within the hour afterwards.
  7. I agree The park is a public space and not an event arena. I should be able to walk around it whenever I feel like it not just when I have paid for certain sections.
  8. Infirmary Road Tesco Sunday 22nd April
  9. Your bond should be with these guys if you started renting after 2007 - on behalf of the landlord https://www.depositprotection.com It shouldn't be held with the agents anymore http://www.gov.uk/deposit-protection-schemes-and-landlords You must place your tenants’ deposit in a tenancy deposit protection (TDP) scheme if you rent out your home on an assured shorthold tenancy that started after 6 April 2007.
  10. I have to laugh at the ... "we aim to ensure as little disruption as possible" Another round of no trams and rubbish replacement bus services coming up - standing in town watching "blue" buses turning up on one street only for them to get to another street and switch to being a "yellow" service One bus in a morning, which is full by the time it reaches your stop Not to mention the recent ad-hoc 3 nights where there was work carried out from 11pm til 5am with less than 24 hours notice of working outside people's houses...
  11. Will the Tesco one go ahead today? I know it's hard standing but will people put their stuff out in the rain and has anyone turned up? Thanks!
  12. Hi I am looking for a female hair salon in Sheffield City Centre - they don't have to be female, just that they cut female hair! Any recommendations - I am just looking for a trim and my layers tidying up a bit. Thanks!
  13. I finish work at 5.30pm. At 6pm (the time of the meeting) I am still travelling home from work....
  14. Yes parks are there for everyone to enjoy - enjoy the peace and tranquility in a busy world. They are areas of nature in an ever crowded City - feed the ducks, watch the squirrels, enjoy the woodland walks. They allow you to breathe and relax. The park itself is a living entity full of different animals homes. It doesn't need to be constantly filled with event after event to be in use.
  15. We've just had the same problem at home. i opened the mail and contacted the bank who was sending the mail. Turns out they had the details wrong at their end had "accidentally" added our address to someone else's name Yes it is worth opening it and contacting them.
  16. https://www.facebook.com/SheffEvents/photos this is all I could find - look like just the one day on Monday - 10.30 - 5.30
  17. I'm sorry you don't find this helpful, it'll work for some - but not for all I have several relatives buried there, but my Grandad is the one I think about the most...
  18. Take your trinkets home, put them on your own shrine/quiet area. The grave is just a body, the soul of your loved one will come to you wherever you are.
  19. I always find it amazing that people can tell if you need the priority seat or not just by looking at you. I am a young person, with a disability, I have a walking stick, but once on the tram the stick is folded up in my bag - I don't feel the need to wave it around like a disability flag. When my disability is bad I sit in the priority seat and i have endured looks and comments from people who think I don't need to sit there, sad to say this is from "older" people. There may be people who are taking the micky but you really can't tell if someone needs that seat. End of rant - back to the "women who swear in public" thread....
  20. There are Heritage Open days in Sheffield every year (not sure when this started) but this year it is 7-10 September. We went around Cutlers Hall last year and the Town Hall. All for free Here is a link to the website - nothing on there yet but keep an eye on it for more details https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting
  21. Are you all sure it's a motorbike? I used to be at the bus stop outside B&M at 6.30am and a guy with a petrol powered leafblower would come past most days blowing rubbish into the road for the little road sweeper to sweep up This was loud! and soundeda bit like a motorbike! Are brushes now too much to use at this time of the morning Council?
  22. I used to live on the 9th floor of a tower block and my post always got put through my letter box. There are lifts in most flats so how is it longer or harder than walking around an estate to put post through each and every door?
  23. Thank you - it wasn't easy, I wasn't offered the first "job" I worked in, I had to do a few placements to get my foot in the door, so to speak. But I didn't view it as a "forced employment" more an opportunity, something I could take advantage of for my CV and my self esteem. I felt better going out "to work" then I did sitting home waiting for my giro :-D
