  7. Heard a few years ago that Tesco was going to build a super store on here but it was found mush of the site is contaminated.
  8. When the Circus and Funfair visit the park (and any other council owned sites) they pay a substantial amount of rent and a bond which is non refundable if they leave a behind mess, so i would imagine this would apply to the organisers of Tramlines as well.
  9. Well Hillsborough Park will benefit in the long run, read somewhere the organisers of Tramlines are donating £10,000 to the park.
  10. Whats happened to Manor Lane chip shop?, different miserable staff, slow service (2 people walked out, got fed up of waiting) and the food is terrible. At least mine was today, more batter (which was soggy) than fish, chips only just warm and all small chips. Will be thinking twice about going again in the near future.
  11. Try Oliver's tyres, Craddock Road, off City Road just below Quick Fit heading down from Manor Top.

  14. Plenty of fair's starting next week. Most Sheffield Fair's are put on by Farrar's. They have their own Facebook with details on.
  15. Moving into the old supermarket shop next to Maplins until work is finished.
  16. Not sure if any of the North family, but a few fairground families used to spend the winter on that ground whilst they were off the road.
  17. Not taking subs again, told today the old club has finished and the new club is called Manor Estate Social club 2017, the phone has been cut off and they are awaiting membership of the CIU before they can take subs.
  18. Don't know about 1899, but Farrar's Funfair has been visiting Hillsborough Park each year since 1967. the Sheffield Show, Mayfest have been held there and Planet Circus returns on Wednesday.
  19. Anyone who organises an event in a park eg funfair, circus has to pay a non refundable bond if they leave a mess or damage the ground.
