  1. That bit of pavement in Broomhill is very narrow. Due to the angle of the parking bays it's about 1m wide at its narrowest point. It's not wide enough in 'normal' times. I've often thought it would be better to get rid of the parking spaces, widen the pavement and maybe even build a better facade on the front of the shop units or give them some street space.
  2. Don’t forget real ale sometimes comes in bottles too. Proper Job Cornish IPA for example is maybe the most common one in supermarket fridges, costs about £1.70.
  3. I usually try and fold an old mattress and tie it up with wire or gaffer tape. Get your mate or wife to sit on it when you’ve folded it while you tie it or tape it up. Then you can lift it around easier and it fits in an average hatchback. If it’s living outside for a while cover it with plastic sheeting or binbags.
  4. Sheffield's 2 universities have 60,000 students. Not all of these live in Sheffield. The population of City of Sheffield is 575,000. So about 10% students, 90% not students. https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/content/dam/sheffield/docs/your-city-council/facts-figures/Sheffield Factsheet v1.pdf
  5. I hope these buildings are retained and improved like in HotC2. I'd love to see the pub sensitively restored. It's got a bit of history behind it as it's opposite the city hall stage door and performers often popped in for refreshment (Pete Townshend for example). It would be great if there was something like a 'proper pub' in this location rather than chains.
  6. That’s great news. Well done planners. What a blessing it was that 7Stone (bad name, bad idea) never happened. The developments in the centre that we’re getting now are exactly what we need.
  7. Why don't the supermarkets sell mutton? Is it a cultural thing? I enjoy making stuff with lamb but as a former veggie it does seem a bit unnecessary to be eating them. It would make more sense to eat the older animal instead.
  8. The current plan is for it to be flattened and a 'food court' kind of building to be built on the site. I'd rather it was retained and adapted for that kind of new use if that is what's happening there. Or worst case retain the facade as an entrance to the new space. But I think it could all change as things progress. So who knows it may reopen. We need some decent bars round that area.
  9. Public libraries are just one example of the most basic things in the UK that we are most proud of. A good quality public library service is an indicator of a civilised, free society. Libraries should be properly funded and staffed by properly trained and experienced staff. Libraries aren't just about printed books these days and haven't been for decades. Other examples of institutions many are proud of in the UK include the NHS, the BBC etc. What do they all have in common? Yes, they're under threat from the Cummings elite who run our country now.
  10. There is still Bingham's on Western Rd in Crookes: http://www.binghamsfood.co.uk/
  11. If it’s UK, RoI and NL together don’t the Dutch get a turn? Let’s have Jan, Johan, Kees, Wim, Dirk etc.
  12. I imagine if most people are having more than two pints they stick to 'session' ales. So that's why the strong ones don't sell as much. You can't really be having 5 or 6 pints of Axe Edge or Jaipur etc. It's not sustainable, or much fun I don't imagine.
  13. Blizzard and backed up traffic all over Crosspool, One inch deep and rising. So I'm off to panic buy £1 chocolate oranges and Proper Job.
  14. Looks great. I can't see the bit about a roof terrace on the drawings, but that would be good.
