Operation Lib

Have your say

Police chiefs accurately describe distraction burglary as ‘heinous’ (‘400 homes targeted as conmen prey on elderly.’ May 12). I support their action to catch these conmen and bring them to justice. However, they should also be congratulated for their political insight and sense of humour: they have called the initiative to tackle these crooks who turn up on the doorstep and promise you one thing then do another Operation Liberal. How apposite!

Flood research

I AM a PhD student at the University of Hull who is researching the impact of flooding on small and medium sized business in the Sheffield area. It aims to help businesses prepare for the risk of flooding so the catastrophe of 2007 is not repeated. I am currently looking for owners or managers to assist and take part in this study by either being an interview participant or completing a short questionnaire.

A brilliant show

A GROUP of 14 of us went to the City Hall to see Carousel. It was brilliant! The cast, songs, costumes and scenery were excellent and the two smallest Snow Children were real cuties. I hope to see them in more productions. Well done all of you.

Sick of our bus

We are sick and tired of our bus services, No 17 Norton Lees and No 39 Chancet Wood. Since July 2010 we have no service after 7pm until the next day, also no bus service on Sundays and holiday time. Also the 39 has only six buses, one every hour until 2pm, no Saturday, Sunday or holiday service to Chancet Wood. I cannot visit my friends at Chancet Wood, young people cannot go out at night and the elderly are trapped in their own environment. We also cannot visit people in hospital. It is all to do with Labour and the First bus company. They are disgusting.
