  1. Pre- booked with City App last night as we had the chance of a rare night out and wanted to be on time for a restaurant reservation. Ten minutes after the time I had booked for, the app was still apparently "looking for a driver". Gave up and eventually got an uber after 3 attempts with the app. Is pre-booking not actually a thing any more? Was I naive to think that by requesting a taxi 2 hours in advance, it might actually turn up roughly when I wanted it? If I had phoned 2 hours in advance instead, would that have been any different? What about if I had been trying to get to the train station or to the hospital? Strikes me as being a pretty poor way of running a service!
  2. Yes, the idea was to accumulate as many miles as possible, rather than visiting as many different boxes ( though you could of course, do both!). I thought this was a great initiative and lived the competitive element- my kids' school won a prize to spend on PE equipment that they otherwise probably couldn't afford. Really hope it comes back again at some point!
  3. Is he definitely still there? Couldn't find the stall when I last ventured down there a few weeks ago. Has it moved, maybe?
  4. The Millowners Arms in Kelham Island do.
  5. The signage for the diversion coming from the Langsett Road direction really isn't great. The sign appears to point down a no entry road. Almost turned down there myself and have seen several others do the same.
  6. Hi Hayley, I was wondering how you arranged this? We are looking for a poodle crossbreed and would certainly consider the rehomng option. However have not seen any up for rehoming through the standard routes (all seem to be Staffys and the like!). Any info would be gratefully received!
  7. Agreed. I sometimes take this route and this particular manouevre is a nightmare when it's busy.
  8. If it's a general metal bar you're after, rather than specifically a scaffolding bar, we used www.themetalstore.co.uk. Was surprisingly cheap.
  9. It's very worrying times for the aquatics clubs that are reliant on the specialist facilities there and have nowhere else to train. Current word is it will remain closed until at least April, by which time it will be too late. Such a shame for the world class and up and coming athletes who train there as well as the coaches that support them.
  10. Think it was an old thread that was revived. Perhaps mods could change the title before the pub loses anymore custom?
  11. No actual outdoor pools in Sheffield and most indoor pools still shut. Not a great surprise this is happening.
  12. Lot's of complex factors at the moment that probably will impact numbers of Chinese students (international squabbling over 5G, Covid.....) but will be impossible to unravel them!
  13. Sheffield not mentioned, but clearly this is a wider problem: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/15/english-councils-backpedal-on-cycling-schemes-after-tory-backlash I'm not sure politicising this is helpful. Just seems to be a general trend of councils rushing to spend the cash that government are throwing at then without considering the issues properly first.
  14. So just the entertainment venues- no sports centres?
