  1. I will ask again. Why is it not running as it brings a lot of happiness (and memories) to youngsters and enhance the experience of many children visiting the place.
  2. Why is the miniture train not running in Rother Valley Country Park?
  3. Hello Barrington Mcabe. I remember you . You lived in the prefabs on Stradbroke Road ( (on the the triangular bit at the bottom before the houses . My name is Barry Moakes. I lived a few houses down in the houses opposite the school.I remember as a young child (older than a toddler) playing with you around your house when the snow was really deep and making tunnells in the snow .Do you by any chance remember that ? It must have been around 1958 . Was your Dad a famous referee?
  4. Between 1970 and 1978 I worked as a technician in the Metallurgy Dept of the University on St, Georges Square (Just down fromMappin Street off Trippet Lane). Me and my mate Paul Hawksworth went up to Butlers for our tea brake every afternoon at 3pm wearing our white laboratory coats. I'me sure that when we crossed over Broad Street, all the people in their cars going up and down thought that we were Gynacologists from Jessops Hospital I have great memories of talking to Steve all afternoon whilst we (I ) became an expert on the pinball machine. (If you coult hit a certain bumper and then get the ball to rest on one of the flippers the electrics got stuck and kept registering that you was hitting the bumper continuously. You could just stand there with your finger on the flipper button until you hit the total and got a free game The maximum free games I registered was 13 in one go. Best days of my life (I'me still happy now).
  5. We will be downsizing to a smaller house soon and will no longer have anywhere to store our tent and camping stuff. Has anyone got a small dry space in the corner of a spare room (about 4 ft by 5 ft area) to keep our tent and camping gear? We will be happy to pay small rent (say about £10 per month) for your help. We would be grateful if there is anyone out there who can help. Please contact Barry or Sheila on 07777618356 or PM us

  11. Hi, We have some relations in Leeds Who have a son who is taking his finals at Nottingham Uni this summer and they want to celebrate his 21st Birthday in Sheffield with a a meal at somewhere special. They suggested Whitley Hall (which we all have good memories from 20 - 30 years ago of dinner dances - Barnsley Chops Etc.) Is it still good? What are the meals (menu) like? Do they still have dancing after the meal? Have they still got a pianist/live entertainment to create the right ambeience for a special occassion? Can anyone recommend an alternative venue for a special meal? Regards Barry
  12. I live in a hilly area where all mobile network sigals are very poor and I cannot get a signal inside my house. However, if I place the mobile at the top of the house next to the window I can get up to 3 bars and can even hold a conversation if I hold my head to the window - Not very practical (and my head gets cold). I work from home and clients often phone my mobile No. I have partly got around the problem by placing the phone "in it's position" and call forwarding all incoming calls to my landline. However, I often phone clients on their mobiles which gets very expensive on my landline and can't use up my free minutes on the mobile. I have found a company that that sells GSM booster kits (mobile repeaters) but they cost £200! - which I think is a bit over the top. I am with BT Anywhere (one year left on the contract) using a HTC S620 phone which uses GSM 850 GSM 900 and GSM 1800 Has anyone got a booster that they no longer want and wish to sell, or can anyone tell me where to go to get one without forking out so much.Or has anyone got any other ideas?
