  1. Ah well, at least it’s something you could fall back on if you can’t find a better deal. On the plus side they gave a 2-hour collection slot and were very efficient, with a certificate of safe disposal so you know it won’t end up fly tipped on a country lane.
  2. I’ve used https://www.collectyouroldbed.com/ £11.99, I chose my collection date, they turned up, collected, gave me a receipt - nice and easy.
  3. At least an hour a day, usually more. I spend much more time listening to music than I do watching tv.
  4. The scheme with the radios still exists, not just for the Moor. ”CRAC radio is used by 154 businesses in retail, hospitality and the night time economy to share information about shoplifters and people known for anti-social behaviour. The network provides businesses with a direct link to the Council’s CCTV operators, who will contact the police if the incident requires more support.” https://sheffieldnewsroom.co.uk/partner-news/sheffield-bid-helps-businesses-tackle-crime-during-festive-season/
  5. I think it was stopped while they were switching the chimes over to play the Christmas music.
  6. I’m not impressed with the bus offering. Two full weeks of Saturday service. Great. Thanks for sharing the info Andy
  7. I sometimes used to walk past when they had their food delivered. Huge tubs of mayonnaise and boxes of chips. Nothing wrong with that, but they charged as if the food was freshly prepared by “proper” chefs (actually the kitchen staff seemed to spend more time outside the fire doors having a fag) ...can you tell I wasn’t impressed?
  8. Well I’ve definitely caught buses from that stop, but maybe I shouldn’t have! They all stopped and let me get on anyway. Ah well, it’s a minor inconvenience compared to the desecration of some other routes.
  9. The temporary stop is being removed? I assumed they were just waiting for a permanent pole/shelter to be installed. It’s got the textured pavement and a pull-in space for the bus. Why on earth would they remove it? (I’m not doubting Resident BTW, just questioning the sense behind the decision)
  10. Their “stories” pop up on Facebook, I’ve not seen a printed copy for ages. (When I say “stories”, it’s usually inaccurate weather reports, or lists of takeaways with one-star hygiene ratings.)
  11. The Star have now published a “story” on the changes, with a typical click bait headline : “LISTED: Every South Yorkshire bus service set to change from the beginning of next month“. Honestly, their reporting gets worse.
  12. The new timetables don’t seem to be on the website yet, does anyone know what time “evening” starts?
  13. Personally I think they’re horrible, but I can appreciate the skill and artistry needed to create them, and he has certainly developed his own unique style - obviously not to everyone’s taste, but definitely art.
  14. There was a van outside from an arcade/video game company, so this would be a reasonable guess.
