I've only ever been in the one near the Spire a handful of times without any problems and the one near the Market about the same - with no problems.

Any pub can get it's problem customers and the recent hot weather won't help!

Hope your dad is OK?

Pleased you have made your first trip umpire - at least you know how easy it is now.   (y)

Strange you should post as daughter called me today as she had had a call from the Hallamshire to see if she could go tomorrow as they have had a cancellation - not possible so will wait for the appointment coming - whenever that will be.

I'm sure you are an admirable parent as well.
Your children determine your life in so many ways in terms of responsibility for their future.
It's not always easy with tantrums and hormones etc., but stick with them - support them whenever you can.
The best love in the world is being blessed with children - The Wife & I have two still at home (28 & 25), and, frankly, I'm glad they are still here. Love them both to bits!
Ok - soppy moment over - but that's how it is & I'm happy (y)

Aww you old softy  :)

I have many children which not my own, but they keep in touch and I am 'mum' Always there to help them if they need me even though most are now in their 20's. gets a bit expensive for Weddings and Christenings  ;D =- Recently went to a young child's birthday party to find two other of my extended family their with thei children - lovely surprise and reunion  :-*

Then of course there is my daughter with mobility problems - always around for her when she calls me - which is pretty often  ::)  :-*

WCT - never forget that once you would have been the ago your daughter is at as she moves through what can be the difficult teenage years. You will survive - just  :)) x

i couldn't give street directions but can drive there.
I do go past Beauchief and I think it sounds as if maybe same way as you are thinking umpire.
If you have a sat nav I would use that.
I come out of the road fly has put turn left then right onto the road where the Hallamshire is.

It's a one way system round the hospital grounds if the car parks full it's a case of riding round in a circle in the hospital grounds.
Once you've done it it's east enough - just a pain.

As fly said you may need to go over to the other part of the hospital once parked up - depends which department you want but there's always plenty of people around to ask.

When I come out I turn right onto the main road and a short way down the street is a left turn ( again use sat nav) from there it's just a back track of the way I came.

Hope all goes well

I have to disagree on this one, we need a deterrent and Trident is a deterrent.
Do we really know how sophisticated Korea's weapons are?
Do we really know if the terrorists are secretly making up their own Nuclear weapons?
They seem to get a lot of money to fund their cause.

I agree that  we can never have enough money where Terrorists are concerned - but they are seemingly using rather simplistic methods to cause death and disruption - what can anyone provide to stop this?

In time my daughter will be 18 she be able to go drinking in bars and clubs if she chose to. Me and my partner have talk about this subject a few times she will not want her mum and dad tagging along to see if she is OK I'm really dreading her going out alone. As we live at Dronfield she could either go to Sheffield or Chesterfield their is not much at Dronfield for an 18  year old  girl so its likely she will head to one or the other may stop out to the early hours as both places have such opening hours . Given what's happening now and the lack of Policing she could easily be a target for crime hopefully not I don't want anything to happened to her. I really do think opening hours should be reduced drastically perhaps a last bus for example at 12pm with bus stops and taxi ranks with a policy of any trouble they are banned from using them sounds harsh but if you give a regular trouble maker to much slack they we cause even more problems .

That's called being a parent WCT - x

Chesterfield Discussion / H2
« on: July 20, 2016, 09:20:02 PM »
FRom Natacha Engle on the H2


HS2 have now published their new route map and the proposed line has been moved to run parallel to the M18 motorway, to the east of Rotherham.

It has also been recommended that HS2 services to Sheffield split from the high speed line near Alfreton and travel to a Sheffield Midland station on a conventional-speed rail line.

This will mean that areas like Renishaw and Killamarsh will be avoided and that there may be the option for the service to stop at Chesterfield too. However the new proposed route has not yet been confirmed and will be undergoing a consultation later this year. After this has taken place, the Government will then take a formal decision on the route.

An update on the Six Halts Pub's name.

It was named after the Clay Cross railway which went to Ashover - the train had Six Halts ( Flag Stops ) on this run.

It opens On August 30th 2016, will have a pizza kitchen and ice cream parlour as well as the main menu.

A few weeks ago we went to a white collar boxing event in Sheffield.
We walked across town to get on the last bus home and for a Saturday night thought it was pretty quiet.

If the early morning revellers want taxis then I suppose some parking bays for them near by would help get them out of the area.

The problem with drunks in A&E has been going on for years.
My late partner was an Ambulance Driver and told me many stories, at one time the drunks were treated and expected to be taken back home -

Once he's, ahem, cough, cough, backed them up  ::)  he can sell/give them away  (y)

Barry - he's a squirrel - won't give anything up.

The Profile bed has now gone from the downstairs extension so he brought his drum kit out of the shed into that room - set up up and polished it!
He doesn't play on the friggin thing anymore.
He won't sell it!
It's the reason he's got dodgy shoulders from his Banding days as a drummer.

Sell the records nah  ;D
