    old asda at woodseats

    There was a van outside from an arcade/video game company, so this would be a reasonable guess.
  2. I can only imagine the electronics store referred to is Dixons which shut years (decades) ago, unless they mean Maplins which was never on Fargate to my knowledge.

    Battery Recycling

    John Lewis in town or Waitrose will take them off your hands.
  4. Do you think the Sheffield BID group could, with the council and PTE, subside a “City Clipper” type route again? Doesn’t have to be free, but maybe a flat rate low charge.
  5. Which electronics store has gone from Fargate? and yes, countless eateries - countless because it’s zero?

    sheffield streets worst crime

    One of the “streets” listed in the article is the Northern General Hospital - hardly a street, and probably not the criminals’ home address either. Photos from Google Streetview, and not even sorted from worst to best, it’s a terrible article!
  7. I have seen a few posters on buses (mainly on Stagecoach), but only during the Christmas/New Year period when some people might not have been going to work.
  8. I don't think this has already been posted on here.

    Northern Rail strikes

    Yes, the Saturday strikes on Northern continue. http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/service_disruptions/207629.aspx

    Christmas cards to muslims.

    It's not illegal, nor is it in bad taste. Plenty of Muslims celebrate Christmas, just the same as atheists (obviously they don't go to church or midnight mass, but neither do the majority of those who give and receive Christmas cards)

    Taxi knowledge test sheffield

    Taxi drivers often ask me which route I want them to take. I just say, whichever you think will be quickest. They then resort to satnav, clearly having failed to get any hints from me of where "Meadowhead" might be.

    Sheffield utd v sheffield wed

    Wow - I've heard of canned laughter being used in sitcoms, but canned crowd sounds for football?! (I don't have Sky so I've never really noticed)

    Dr Who filmed in Sheffield

    It wasn't shown on screen but the police box on Surrey Street got a namecheck in episode 2.

    Arundel Gate Closed 3/10/18 from Midnight

    Thanks for the heads up. As far as I can see there's no sign of any cladding actually having fallen, but it looks like the road could be closed for some time.
