TBH fly if it is a wind up letter which it looks as if it it - it is in poor taste.

The things that happened in Rotherham and anywhere else is no joking matter certainly not to the people who were exploited and abused - it shouldn't be made fun of in this way.

Good idea fly.
If it's not it has to be an offence to use their paper or logo

The Safe Guarding training isn't just to help protect children, it is also for Vulnerable adults - ( although we are advised the 'vulnerable' is now dropped )

I'm not sure what training will include fly but amongst it will be possibly treating people with care, consideration and giving them the dignity which they are entitled too. I'm sure most drivers already do this anyway.

Have to agree about your comments re- the letter.

Fly this is in line with Derbyshires Safe Guarding.
I notice it's for two hours.

I've recently updated mine as although I'm 'retired'  in a sense I still do a bit of work.
Mine was an all day training earlier this year.

Are you sure it's 'all' Taxi drivers?
Maybe they are  doing 'block' training session's and more drivers will be called in later?

I am hoping the 'I will send Mick out to get you' is a tongue in cheek joke as the letter states it is voluntary - if it isn't it needs taking up with the relevant person as it isn't appropriate at all!

Personally over the years, I have taken all training offered over and above what I need to as my own thoughts are that I will always come away learning something new - even if several years before I have attended the same topic.

Politics / Re: Should David Cameron Step Down As Prime Minster?

It was obvious from the start that Corbyn is 'not' a leader, he's not strong enough and his speeches are stilted, he's forever looking at his papers as he doesn't seem able to remember what he thinks on various issues?

Cameron - well who does actually like him, I'm repeating myself here but he's a bully and so are many of his party members!

Johnson, I don't really know much about TBH, he 'seemed' in the early days a bit of a drip - I'm not too sure he is now. Maybe he has been waiting quietly for his chance and the EU may well give that to him?

Meanwhile Corbyn has his own parties shit to clean up from the latest problems. Does anyone else think that it is very often the 'more senior' members of the UK who make statements of anti antisemitism it is quite interesting known as 'the oldest hatred'
it was nearer 'their era' not an excuse for them at all just pointing out what may have been fed to them by parents etc?

Going back to WCT's posts of Sheffield.
I was speaking to someone who lived and worked there and they said exactly the same thing as you started your post with scimitar - no one  seems to care about 'British' anymore and in Sheffield our culture is seemingly being 'squashed' as the influx of other countries want it made into their culture - not British - we are a country afraid of being tagged 'racist' the person said much more but i think that is enough to post on here.

I wish Cameron could be knocked of his perched - detest this individual!

Do you take the poinsettia everywhere with you ?

Yes of course I'm attached to the pretty little thing now - we have been together for many months  ::)

I may even take her into town with me tomorrow - which by the way I am meaning to message you about -  ;)

Just to clarify things for others - fly is giving me something tomorrow  :-? - unless he's forgotten   ;)

Today we have Spring flowers and Bushes bursting into Bloom - whilst I still have my Christmas Poinsettia.

Crazy weather!

Oh flipping heck! Thanks for that Umpire. They are already working on the Derby Road, at the top of Mill Lane. Traffic lights in place yesterday. I have to go to Newbold again today so Wingerworth will be my detour !

I was in the Greyhound at Higham yesterday, looked out of the window to see a blizzard raging.

Snow and Hail this lunch time as I drove down the bypass towards Newbold - when I set off from home the sun was shining and it was really warm.

I have relatives in Australia who tell me they have temperatures of 25 - 36. They should be moving into their winter!!

Greedy gits are stealing our spring weather!

From what I saw this morning at work it seems buses will be allowed through the roadworks. They are being carried out at night apparently, so there should be virtually no impact on services.

and breath----------

Was that the reason Stage Coach wasn't notified scimitar?

It looks as if they are in administration.
Very sad, to see the retailers which have been around as long as I can remember going.
I used to love to go in the shop on the Moor in Sheffield to look at the brilliant display of lighting they had.
God forbid we get another pound shop on the site

No. It's not happened yet. Simply DCC website mentioned some roadworks on their website which potentially will affect some Stagecoach bus services between Chesterfield & Sheffield. The A61 was my main concern but it's all been resolved now.

Can I ask how scimitar?
