  1. Couldn't agree more. What's worse is aside from the two you mention, there are 3 other temp lights that have gone up within a mile or so of the Barnsley Road works. Pavement dug up, lights put in, havoc caused and not a workman to be seen. I am sure the usual apologist brigade will be around shortly to defend the road/pavement/gas works and explain how it is far too dangerous for people to work on the pavements as cars and buses are going up and down so they only work between 3 and 5am or how it's an extremely difficult job requiring genius level engineering skills and those people are in short supply. funny thing is only the other day, residents in the 'posher' end of town rose up and complained as the gas works meant they couldn't park outside their own homes! I suspect the engineering geniuses are all huddled over there, trying to get it sorted because many of those residents over there will know someone with a bit of clout in the council.
  2. haha why take it so personally? 🙂 The talking down is for the entertainment value. And not sure they are "nobodies". They are all pretty accomplished in their field of quizzing.
  3. Ok. if you insist. You are incorrect. The terminology used in the Star is correct (never thought I'd be saying that!) I assume you are new to Sheffield...?
  4. didn't know him at all, but sounds like a very decent human being.
  5. Oh gosh, no. Not saying that AT ALL in any way, shape or form. My comment was in relation to a specific point the OP made. Sorry i didn't make it clear enough for you to understand.
  6. That's why. Whole different ball game. Random 'stuff' happens and more likely than not in the western world, the culprit is white but you wouldn't know because it doesn't make the news. This obviously caught your eye. If (for example) there was any indication it was a terrorist attack it would be front page news worldwide because it is no longer random.
  7. i don't think its 'bad' at all. i used to live near there. its got lots of things going for it but then a few things going against it. What "bad reputation" have you heard about exactly?
  8. funeral itself was in S5 but the 'procession' went through a number of areas including S4 and S9. i use the word procession loosely because from what i saw it was nothing but mayhem with horns blaring, cars being revved, and those idiots on the dirt bikes behaving like utter yobs and intimidating all other road users into submission. never mind the blatant disregard for social distancing rules or limit on number of people allowed at a funeral, the brave officers of SYP didn't even bother to impose traffic rules and instead hung so far back that they may as well have stayed at home with a cuppa and a biscuit in hand!!
  9. that is me, actually! Only go into town if i couldn't perform the same task elsewhere, for example John Lewis. But what i would say is although i go to town for a very specific purpose, more than likely i would end up buying a few things from one or two other shops and pop into a cafe/restaurant for lunch and maybe Costa or Pret for a coffee & cake. And there would be 2 of us, doing same. By increasing the parking charges ridiculously (i know well off, possibly ex-civil servants like the Planner man will disagree with 'ridiculously') the council has convinced me never to bother again. I will change my buying habits, but multiple outlets in the city centre will lose my custom & income once a month. As an individual it will matter very little to the businesses, but i suspect i will definitely not be the only one feeling this way. SCC need to wake up because their stupidity will be the final nail in the coffin for Sheffield city centre.
  10. if that's the only point you can argue against, great, I rest my case!
  11. What kind of deluded world must people live in if their justification for the price hike in Sheffield is that it still compares favourably to Manchester or Leeds. I've worked & shopped in the latter two for many years and now work in Sheffield. Let me tell you that comparison is so ridiculous it's untrue. Sheffield city centre is dying and dying fast. The council needs to breathe life into it and the one way NOT to do that is to almost double parking prices! I used to go occasionally, now i won't bother. Not paying those extortionate prices just to visit one or two decent shops. i thought extending the paid parking hours to 20.30 was the final nail in the coffin, but SCC have outdone themselves again.
  12. Wow! Have they shot up or what?! Almost 6 quid for 2 hours parking around campo lane/west bar. suspect all council car parks have gone up too. You'd think the last thing Sheffield city centre needed was another excuse for people not to go there.
  13. So lots of small scale fly tipping around me lately. tried reporting on fixmystreet (as i have always done) but it seems SCC no longer accepts reports from 3rd party sites. Went to the SCC website but it seems it no longer possible to submit online forms. They ask you to ring a number that keeps giving you 6-8 options to choose from but never gets picked up an actual human at any point. I think we will all just have to accept flytipping piling high on every street corner as a normal part of life ,as SCC clearly wants us to.
  14. no one moves to Sheffield for the job opportunities! 🤣 There's only about 3 decent size employers in the whole city (save public sector). Genuinely, gain your experience down south where there are lots of opportunities there, and then apply for the half dozen roles that exist up here and you may have a chance of beating the other 250 people who will also apply for the same role! but if i was in your position, footloose and responsibility-less, looking to build a career, I would go to Leeds or Manchester.
  15. that is bad luck indeed as Timber Top is one of few that is still closed. Around that area Sara on Barnsley Road open, Smart slightly further on, on Pitsmoor road open, and Diamond on burngreave Road open Cricket Inn road i am not familiar with.
