  18. Some of the locals have now complained about the owner of the fair allowing cars to park on the grass in the park last weekend. It will not be allowed this weekend, so their drives and roads will be full instead. If this is what they realy want, lets hope they get blocked in this weekend and then they will wish they had never complained. As for the residents of Firth Park area who glad to see the fair has gone, do they not relize the owner of the fair has just sponsered banners etc out of his own pocket for their forthcoming festival.
  19. Did anyone else see them going down Ecclesall Road this afternoon, one way to keep cool!
  20. It mentions 17,000 in the Star, bet it was more like 1,700 who went in and the rest who turned around and went home when they saw what was there. Full marks to Green City Days for putting on Sheffield's worst ever event.
  21. There are some letters in todays Star and also The Telegraph slating this event.
