Sheffielders should support Carbrook

The survival of Carbrook Hall as a public house through the industrialisation and post-industrialisation of the lower Don Valley makes it like Sheffield, a survivor.

Terror attacks

Terror attacks

Do the British people take these terror threats seriously?

Your Say 2
EU Referendum

Are they a price worth paying?

I write in response to Susan Richardson’s letter, (Star, May 4), in reply to my previous comments on this page.

A sign on tree cut down by contractors in Rustlings Road

Proud to be a tree hugger

It would appear that my latest letter about trees, (Star, May 16), in which I said there was ‘a lack of education and understanding’ hit the nail firmly on the head.

Council only listen to opinions when it suits

The letter published on Friday, May 12, (“Opinions differ from the online survey”), was virtually identical to a letter sent on May 8 to local councillors for Hillsborough, Sheffield City Council Leader Julie Dore, and cabinet member Coun Bryan Lodge.

Peregrines

The least of their worries

In reply to JD Arnold’s letter about our birds of prey, I have to believe that he/she is not a countryside dweller.

Your Say
Pollution

The school run mums who don’t do walking

I find the recent fascination with nitrogen oxide pollution levels intriguing.

Your Say 1
Central library

Central library

The central library is a beautiful building, built for purpose.

EU Referendum

Keeping the peace through friendship and cooperation

Ron Clayton, (Letters, May 12), and I have previously had a friendly disagreement on how best to build peace in Europe.

Your Say 22
NHS

Ransomware attack on NHS

We live in an age in which random acts of evil are commonplace but for pure wickedness the recent shutdown of the NHS computer systems by means of a ransomware attack takes some beating.

A poster attached to railings in Parsonage Crescent, Walkley

Clean up our act or become filthiest city

The Star’s article on dog fouling, (May 12), highlights part of a far wider problem due to an inconsiderate ‘couldn’t care less’ attitude which one can also attribute to the people who throw down litter, blight our city with the appalling amount of ‘fly tipping’ which costs enormous sums of money to clear, engage in the disgusting habit of spitting, and even Sheffield City Council are guilty of environmental vandalism having destroyed thousands of our healthy street trees.

Your Say 4
A waning sign attached to a lamppost in Walkley

Flying the flag

As regards the reported prevalence of unpleasant canine extrusions on our streets I think I may have the solution.

Your Say
One of the trees due to be felled.

I completely despair at the ignorance of some people

With reference to the article ‘Residents tell protesters we want trees to be axed’ (Star, May 6). I hate to criticise some of my fellow Sheffielders but sometimes an occasion arises when things need to be said, even if it ruffles a few people’s feathers.

Oak apples

Best not to try oak apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but maybe best not to try these oak apples!

Your Say 2
EU Referendum

There are two sides to every story

There are two sides to every story, Veronica Hardstaff presents only one, (Letters May 9).

No singing at Lane wanted

No singing at Lane wanted

EB Warris seems to think plans for Bramall Lane, which would put another few million in McCabe’s coffers, plus increased rent for the football club is a good thing.

Your Say 1
Voting

Young people want to take part in election

There has been some debate about how many young people voted in last year’s EU referendum. Straight after the vote, pollsters said that just 36 per cent of people aged 18-24 turned out to cast their vote and a whole generation were branded apathetic, who hadn’t been bothered to have their say.

Your Say 7
Shoesday fundraiser

Shoesday fundraiser

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Support UK’s annual schools fundraiser will take place on July 11, and the charity is looking for local schools to take part in this event.

Your Say
Trees

Opinions differ from the online survey

I am distressed that the mechanisms that Sheffield City Council has set up for its residents to have their say about the trees in their vicinity are obviously not working, and that Amey is saying all sorts of things in the heat of the moment to continue the destruction.

Don’t like it, don’t read it

Don’t like it, don’t read it

Re the letter from “anon” in the Star, Tuesday, May 9, berating Jayne Grayson’s letters to this page.
