  2. The Birley public house Birley Moor Road S12 closed all day Bank Holiday Monday due to unforseen incident.
  3. The fire is at Metallis scrap yard and the smoke is not a hazard at the mo as there is no wind.Passed at 0900 and now looks under control.

  6. And cookers ! ---------- Post added 25-12-2014 at 19:31 ---------- It does not close at all over Christmas and New Year including the shop !
  7. When I was in my youth I used to see him every Saturday morning for quite a few years when he worked with my ma in the returns department for W.H.Smith in the British Rail building opposite Midland Station.He came across as being a bit shy and reserved as I remembered and my ma always asking him for a song (Which he never did alas) Only last year I contacted his agent in the Colorado Hills where his farm was and asked if Joe could remember those early days.He responded saying he could well recall those times with my ma and myself which obviously made our day.Joe you are a true legend RIP.

  9. Does anyone agree that we call it the official "Jasmyn Chan Crossing" as a permanent reminder of this young and popular young girl taken away far far too soon ?
  10. Sincerely hope Sultana turns up for you ! Good luck
  11. We had the Birley cat checked out and it is def a male,12 months old,no collar and no microchip ---------- Post added 13-10-2014 at 20:47 ---------- HTurner >> Not the same cat i'm afraid.My daughter Carly has already been in contact I believe from Sheffield Online.
  12. A black and white Tom cat has been found around the Birley School Thornbridge Avenue area.Looks to be around 12 months old.PM if any information.Very good natured.Somebody somewhere is missing their pet !
  13. The Community Centre is now decked out as Dougie Ds Disco venue and lots of Goth actors walking about!
  14. Noticed the film crews are moving into Frecheville to start a themed "This is England 90" programme based at the Community Centre,Churchdale Road.
  15. Not long before white Transit pick ups are parked on hard shoulder trying to dismantle and weigh it in !
  16. Still closed at 1930 hrs Sunday night.Hope the pedestrian is OK
  17. Lets hope you haven't got tree roots under your house Waddy !
  18. The big tree on Thornbridge Drive / Thornbridge Avenue junction is being felled by Amey Group on behalf of Sheffield Council very shortly due to its "unsafe condition" they claim.They also expect to remove most of the roots but surely after about 80 years they could spread for miles under the houses in the area causing possible subsidence and underpinning having to be employed,mine included ! [Oh well.they're experts]
  19. If the brewing companies would simply reduce their prices for drink then they would not being closing down pubs at an alarming rate of 28 per week nationally.Supermarket chains have seen the gap selling cheap booze and exploited it pushing the poor pubs into oblivion and no doubt the trend will continue spiralling.
