  1. I cycled past on Abbeydale Road earlier at about 10:45am and the police had Empire Road and some surrounding streets closed off? Any ideas? Hope it's not a major incident.
  2. Just been advised (2:45pm) that there are armed police currently on South View Road in Sharrow. Anyone got any snaps or know owt about what's going on? ---------- Post added 09-05-2017 at 14:50 ---------- There are now shouts of "Armed police!" on the street. [14:50] ---------- Post added 09-05-2017 at 14:53 ---------- Now shouts of "Hands on your head, get down on your knees!" [14:53] ---------- Post added 09-05-2017 at 14:56 ---------- It's reported to me that it is a very big raid with many police involved so it could be very serious indeed [14:56] ---------- Post added 09-05-2017 at 15:06 ---------- It's reported to me that the cops involved are all wearing black riot gear with helmets and body armour. Shouting still ongoing. At least 6 officers engaged with ancillary officers redirecting traffic and pedestrians. Armed police on site too. [15:06] ---------- Post added 09-05-2017 at 15:32 ---------- The police have now left [15:30] ---------- Post added 09-05-2017 at 16:38 ---------- Short report in The Sheffield Star which doesn't give much away: http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/breaking-armed-police-surround-property-on-sheffield-street-1-8534563 More details to follow later, they say.
  3. There was an armed robbery this evening at Tesco on Sharrow Lane. It happened at about 9:05pm. Allegedly two chaps rushed in and there was talk that they had a knife. They ordered everyone in the shop to get on the floor and demanded all the cash. Apparently the Tesco staff were amazing and knew what to do. Nobody was hurt. There is a photo here of the police who turned up. There usually is a security guard on duty but tonight he wasn't there. No doubt the miscreants made off into the Lansdowne Estate.
  4. LEARN, SING, MEET, EAT!!! We have a fantastic speaker this Sunday - we are going to LEARN from Sheffield's own 'ray gun consultant' Martin Currie about the value of creativity. We will SING six songs including "Bare Necessities" and "Yellow Submarine". It's a great way to MEET new people. And you get to EAT scrummy cake. All welcome including children. Crookes Social Club, Mulehouse Rd, Sunday 18th Oct. 10:30am for 11am start - see you there! See link below for more details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1646195942325310/permalink/1652681751676729/
  5. Armed police stopped four lads in a white Skoda Fabia and forced it off the road just by The Showroom Cinema. Five police cars on the scene, a dog handler, helicopter was overhead. The suspects looked relaxed as if they hadn't done anything. Police appeared to retrieve a small evidence bag from their car i.e. it didn't look like a huge haul. Suspects carted off to the nick for further questioning. Have a picture.
  6. Not really. I'm talking about a small, locally owned indigenous business that has traded in Sheffield for generations - I'm not mourning the loss of some faceless mega-corp that siphons its cash and profits out of Sheffield to God-knows-where. No, as above, mate, as above. And I'd said "you want tinned tomatoes on a bacon buttie, tinned, ah'm tellin' thee". I don't give much of a monkey's toss if Argos or Greggs closes down apart from whatever impact that might have on Sheffielders' jobs. Well, Pound Bakery is another sizeable chain that is headquartered outside of the City region. I want to spend my Sheffield pound in a Sheffield shop who will put it into the pocket of Sheffield people. Commerce, like charity, begins at home. Anyway, has Nibblers closed down or wot? ---------- Post added 25-06-2013 at 12:51 ---------- How about taking a wild guess while you're about it, Ginger Whinger Anyway, they might be on holiday, might be taking a break, might be changing hands. Who knows?
  7. If I want to buy a decent bacon buttie of a morning then it is my right as a native Brit to purchase one, when and where of my choosing. Between £3 and £70 for breakfast would be quite shocking if, indeed, you were paying towards the upper end of that scale - but I'd said three pounds seventy was a bit steep for a bacon, egg & tommy sarnie. Anyway, has Nibblers closed or wot?
  8. Was a rare breakfast treat, old timer. Went to the dentist this morning - wanna keep me teeth - and so wanted a sarnie before work. ---------- Post added 25-06-2013 at 10:52 ---------- What's good about Sarnies - why would you recommend it? Please describe their bill of fare, my good man...
  9. Was looking forward to a regular bacon, egg and tomato (the large sandwiches are unfeasibly huge) this very morn from Nibblers on Charles Street and the bloomin' shop was shut at 09:45am. I did see a chap removing some stuff from Nibblers on Sunday but didn't think too much about it. Has another city centre premises bitten the dust, I ask myself? In the end I had to get me sarnie from that Roast place near SHU which was ok but a bit over-fancy with their liberal use of fresh tomato and the ciabatta-like bread cake - you want tinned tomatoes on a bacon buttie, tinned, ah'm tellin' thee. Deluxe price too at £3-70 for a regular sandwich. So, the gentrification of the city centre continues apace as we lose traditional suppliers of indigenous 'peasant' food that have sustained generations of Sheffield folk only to be replaced by artisanal boutique creations that pander to the capricious tastes of fleeting bourgeois fashionistas. Fancy a cupcake anyone? Next big question of the day - what to have for lunch? Will probably have to make do with a chimichanga or burrito from the Street Food Cafe...
  10. Sheffield Laughter Club will be laughing with the rest of the world to celebrate World Laughter Day! Leave your adult selves at home and have a really good laugh and play with Dal and friends! We've got loads planned including: laughter games and meditation, drumming, belly-dancing and more! Laughter yoga combines unconditional laughter with yoga breathing for health and well-being. Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humour, jokes or comedy. Laughter is simulated as a group exercise with eye contact and childlike playfulness which soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The idea of laughter yoga is based on the scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter - you get the same physiological and psychological benefits. Book now, Sun 5th May 10am-5pm, £25 waged, £20 unwaged * ~ * * ~ * * ~ * * ~ * * ~ * * ~ * * ~ * * ~ * * ~ *
  11. Maybe ask these chaps: http://www.fonefunshop.co.uk/contact.htm
  12. Go see these guys in Handsworth: http://www.fonefunshop.co.uk/ They're world class experts based in Sheffield. Will probably do a discount if you turn up in person.
  13. Try a local council MOT centre - usually much cheaper.
