    History Of Walkley

    I have also wondered this myself - would be interested if anyone knows the answer!

    Napoli Centro Pizzeria, Glossop Rd

    I tried this place for the first time last week and can verify the OPs claim that it was delicious, and (in my rather more limited experience) authentic. Also reasonably priced, which is a bonus. Will definitely be going back.

    Ram raid at Asda walkley

    Sheffield Star have now cottoned on to this - only 6 days after it happened! https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/police-reveal-details-of-another-supermarket-ram-raid-in-sheffield-1-9589310
  4. We are away on that day, so rally pleased to hear that the BBC will be broadcasting this live. Thanks for posting MEC176.

    Ram raid at Asda walkley

    The incident was actually Wednesday night/early Thursday and the store was shut for most of the day yesterday. Would have thought there were more lucrative places to target, to be honest!

    Bins they are a'changin

    Would be interested in getting one too. we have nowhere sheltered to store the current large brown one and it repeatedly gets blown onto the road in high winds, spreading bottles and cans everywhere. As well as being inconvenient, it is potentially quite dangerous. I added this as a note when we requested a replacement bin when the lid got broken off a couple of weeks ago, but have had no response from the council/Veolia.
  7. Apparently this has been granted a £4.8m loan of public cash by Sheffield Council https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/sheffield-ski-village-council-leaders-sign-off-4-8-million-to-pave-the-way-for-new-sports-complex-at-former-site-1-9564264 Sounds like an ambitious plan. I hope it comes off.
  8. If you extend to 10-11 O clock, then you get Walkley/Hillsborough with direct access to the tram. If it's specifically a flat that you're after, then consider Kelham Island - a very up and coming (some might say "hipster") area with the city centre on one side and a tram stop at the other.
  9. Yes, great to see Dan Walker, as a local university alumnus getting involved. he seemed genuinely moved by the campaign.
  10. Saw this on BBC Breakfast this morning: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-46738576 What a moving story - Tony was one of the kids playing in the park that day that the plane reportedly avoided, crashing into the hillside beyond and killing all ten airmen on board. He clearly has been suffering the trauma of this event for the last 75 years, and has tended the memorial ever since. The fly past clearly means a lot to him and I hope it would give him closure.

    Dam Flask - low water levels

    Look North last night reported that Yorkshire Water were planning for a potential water shortage next summer depending on the level of rain/snow fall we get over the next few months. Presumably some of their reservoirs are also in the Peak District. Love the National Library of Scotland map website with the slider. Have just wasted far too long playing with that!

    Android and Sheffield forum

    OK, have now tried accessing the website on my phone and excessive whitespace aside, it does seem to work well. Thanks.

    Android and Sheffield forum

    Anyone had any luck with this yet? My old forum Android app has stopped working since the upgrade.......
  14. If there's any chance he might want to do anything technical or science related at university later on, just make sure he takes higher level Maths in IB, or a full A level in Maths, or his options will be limited. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android

    Walkley working mens club

    Glad that your wife escaped unscathed! It looks like they have finished gutting the inside now, so presumably they would have found any other lost individuals trapped inside. I guess the next step will be demolishing the building.
