  1. Enough. There is covid thread post on that and do it civilly.
  2. For the moment all of the classifieds including the jobs section will remain closed.
  3. That sounds very like fresh yeast rather than the dried that is more common these days. Balm is the yeasty froth that is found on the top of the brew when making beer. It used to be used to make bread but could be unpredictable in it's results. It is said that it gives a sweet flavour to the bread.
  4. I passed your good wishes along to PT and this is what she's asked me to tell you all. Please tell them I am doing ok, despite the stroke and the heart failure, and thank them for asking. Tell them I am crocheting and knitting away because I have a great grandbaby due beginning of Sept, and give them my regards
  5. You duplicated a post and it was removed by one of the moderating team. You appear to be in a bit of a tangle if you have a problem get in touch with us via the helpdesk - scroll to the bottom of the page and you will find us under contact us. Closing this thread.
  6. I'm not sure it's actually possible on this platform but I will pass that up to Geoff.
  7. If you know somebody who doesn't use the internet and is housebound then this may be of help to them. You need to register by phone and orders are taken over the phone. Sainsbury's Assisted Shopping. 0800 328 1700 mon - fri 9am to 5 pm
  8. The national trust have removed charges for all parks and gardens including car parking fees to allow people to access the outdoors while remaining socially distant. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/news/our-latest-statement-on-coronavirus-covid-19
  9. All Tesco 24hr stores are closing at 10 p.m tonight to restock the shelves. 17/3/20
  10. There is now a dedicated thread for help in sheffield with links to various other help resources and sites which can be found here
  11. We take public health and safeguarding very seriously. As such, we ask anyone using this thread to offer or receive help to observe the following guidelines: * Wash hands thoroughly before engaging in any public activity e.g. leafleting * Do not engage in any public activity if you are showing any coronavirus symptoms * Do not enter anyone's house if you don't know them. Stay a metre or more away from anyone who is self-isolating * If offering to shop for supplies never ask for money up front or for a bank card * Unless you have express permission do not use anyone's personal information shared with you for any purpose other than giving/receiving aid during the current outbreak * Only offer to assist with childcare if you have appropriate DBS checks * We encourage volunteers to undertake any voluntary sector training that might be made available * Do not attempt to give medical advice unless you are a professional. Only repeat public health advice given by the appropriate authorities
  12. Sheffielders have proven to us before that when things get rough they can step up and help and we have every confidence that the Covid19 crisis will prove to be the same. There will be links below to various sites where you can volunteer help. I'm going to put a few probably very obvious points up here. Limiting contact - this includes wearing gloves or using paper towels / plastic bags when handling things like doorknobs and shopping trolly handles. Carry a bag to put these item in for disposal once you have used them. Carry hand sanitiser - if you don't have any then there will be a post after this detailing how to make your own. If there is a big uptake on this on the forum then we will likely start threads for each post code district. I'm not going to lecture people here as you are all grown ups but please be careful when dealing with financial transactions for your safety as well as that of others. The usual rules about bickering and off topic things apply here as does keeping things on topic. I'm sure that with care, forethought and planning we can get through this. The majority of people will be fine even if they do catch this virus so please remember not to panic. Thank you and good luck to us all. Links.
