  1. He's the nephew of one of my neighbours. I don't know if he was born in Sheffield but he might have been raised here or thereabouts.
  2. Glad to be of assistance. Have a good holiday.
  3. I was unaware my new girlfriend was into exotic birds until I overheard one of my friends saying he knew her and that she likes a cockatoo.
  4. North Yorks. Waterpark, Wykeham, Scarborough, YO 13 9QU ( 01723 865062 ). Coarse lake and trout lake. Scarborough Mere, Seamer Rd, Scarborough. ( 01723 374017 ). Both waters have day ticket fishing. Rosedale fishery, Hunmanby, YO14 0LW, ( 07957 145711 ).
  5. We jurors were unaware there was such a thing as a knife awareness course and we did compare it to a speed awareness course where you're basically told you've been very naughty and mustn't do it again.
  6. I recently served as a juror on a murder trial involving a knife. A year before the incident the accused had been caught carrying a knife for which he was ordered to attend a knife awareness course. Because of Covid he did the course online. By his own admission, after completing the course, he continued to carry a knife which he later used with devastating effect.
  7. If you live anywhere near Sheffield Lane Top then Lane Top Club run a fishing club with regular matches. One of the clubs on City Rd also has a fishing club.
  8. Yes, they are. One of the camp's dogs, a lovely staffy, has worked out when we have our break and comes down scrounging a bit of bacon or sausage. She then goes to the sandwich cabin for more freebies.
  9. I work on Club Mill Rd and a couple of my colleagues walk past this camp every day from Hillsborough to work and neither have had any problems with the camp residents.
  10. Crookes Valley is free fishing. However, during this hot weather a lot of people are using it as a swimming pool so fishing might be a bit awkward. Another issue is parking. The car park next to the lake is owned by the university and street parking is minimal.
  11. I used to fish Crookes Valley Park regularly and I remember in the90' s one of the volunteers who tended the flower beds caught Weils disease. He was ill for a long time but thankfully made a full recovery.
  12. Dam Flask is known more for it's bream and pike fishing though there are also some big chub. I've never seen or heard of any carp being caught from there. Underbank reservoir at Stocksbridge holds a few carp but they are very elusive. I believe they were stocked by the association that used to run the water.
  13. When I was made redundant in the late 90's I did a couple of months working for Sunblest bakery delivering bread to factories making pre packed sandwiches. The money was rubbish and the hours strange but I always came home with a bag full of various freshly made sandwiches which my wife and kids would take as pack up.
  14. I used to tell my kids the worst job I had was shaving peaches to make them into nectarines.
  15. I'm afraid you're too late for this season as permits were issued during April when the pond is shut for maintenance. A notice was put up on the gate giving information on how to obtain a permit.
