  1. My late wife and I loved Marco’s every visit was very special with exceptional food and service.
  2. Sorry about that , but still avoid Pingley There are so many bad places around.
  3. From personal experience I found that Broomgrove Nursing Home is excellent. At all costs avoid Pingley Court Care Home which is absolutely atrocious.
  4. When my family lived at Dronfield Woodhouse in the sixties if ever we fancied fish and chips we would head for Ferguson’s as theirs were the best. R.I.P.
  5. You are correct, G&B were firstly bought by Wright’s Biscuits of York then Westons, the Cavenham ( Goldsmith) who changed the name to Moore’s Stores.
  6. It certainly was fascinating and gripping. Oh, absolutely frightening to realise exactly what happened in this country.
  7. Carousel has always been my favourite musical, many people fail to realise that it brought us the song “You’ll never walk alone.” My favourite film always has to be “Calamity Jane” with a very young Doris Day.
  8. I don’t suppose that anyone else will remember my first big news story. I can remember the sinking of the ‘Flying Enterprise ‘ in the channel around 1951. I recall my mum demonstrating how the ship keeled over by using a clothes brush! I must search the incident on the internet. I also remember a top secret American bomber crashing onto Lodge Moor Hospital c.1954. Also, Halibut, the coach that the IRA blew up became known as the M62 bomb.
  9. It was ‘Moran’s’, we really enjoyed their jazz nights with the Grumpah Band. Next door was a bicycle shop.
  10. Sheffield Council must have lost all normality of common sense. A few years ago Sheffield University built a huge student village on Endcliffe Vale Road for new students. The complex includes hundreds of student flats, shops and two hotels. On the third weekend of September thousands of freshers arrive along with parents. The whole area becomes gridlocked and I have heard tales of it taking two hours to drive half a mile from Firth Court to Broomhill! Any Sheffielder who is alert well knows this but in their wisdom Sheffield Council have decided to close Endcliffe Vale Road today for a 10k race! Can you just imagine the utter chaos that this will result in? This is terrible news for Sheffield because as word spreads how many school leavers will come to Sheffield University next year after this debacle?
  11. Mr. Sparks’ Launderette, Mitchell’s butchers who sold booze under the counter but now the best off licence in the area.
  12. As the headline states I am looking for a skip hire company who are good, efficient and reasonable. Have you had a good experience?
  13. Google John Banks in Birmingham, they offer sizes up to 70” waist! Their service for mail order is excellent and they offer an alteration service.
  14. Well I was born in Parker’s Road, Broomhill which backed onto Turner’s Lane. In Turner’s Lane were a lot of businesses mainly vehicle related. My Dad’s family had a haulage business housed in a garage opposite a yard of a garage,filling station. At this garage worked a mechanic Calle Joe Elliot who, many years later, would become the father of Def Leppard lead Joe.
