Nothing dangerous or hazardous

I recently went to visit the 150-year-old Vernon oak and met some of the lovely people who are trying to save this beautiful tree from being felled.

Pigeons at The Moor are becoming a problem

My last pigeon post

Susan Richardson leaves me little choice but to respond yet again, (albeit reluctantly), to her comments on pigeons.

Cheese on Toast

Thanks for fantastic cheese on toast, Ian

On Friday night, (November 10), at the Lomas Hall in Stannington, Ian McMillan sang a musical about eating cheese on toast in the Loxley Valley.

Paving slabs, Morley Street, Walkley, Sheffield

How to do a job badly

Sheffield council should be ashamed of themselves, cutting down trees and taking people to account, when they can’t even make a half-decent job of the pavements without trees.

Hundreds of lost lives on roads every year

Tomorrow is Road Peace Remembrance Day.

A car parked on double yellow lines

Double yellow lines

Please can the Traffic Police or the Council inform us, why is parking on double yellow lines allowed on a regular basis in Wolseley Road, Sheffield, S8 ?

Your Say
traffic

Use a bit of common sense for once

Like many of you I’m a motorist, but the one thing that annoys me more than anything is the driver in front, who refuses to use his or her handbrake.

Conisbrough War Memorial

Bayonet like a butter knife

I am so glad in my retirement years to see the youth taking an interest in Conisbrough with Poppies at the Castle and with Conisbrough’s War Memorial.

The Old Town Hall in Sheffield

Just don’t complain when it has gone

Please don’t worry yourself about saving the old Town Hall. Sheffield Council will remove every bit of our building heritage in the pursuit of some obscure grant to build a modern shop or office block on its site.

Exhaust fumes

We need a clean air zone

In your environmental feature, “Why we need a tough approach to tackle city’s invisible killer” (November 6), there is unfortunately no mention of the only measure likely to be strong enough to bring air pollution in the city centre down to legal levels quickly.

Your Say
Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association selling poppies in South Yorkshire

Selling poppies a fun and rewarding task

I write in response to SFC’s e-mail about the lack of people selling poppies and the few people wearing them. Over the past two weeks I have spent many sessions selling the basic British Legion poppy and other poppy-related merchandise from a table inside a large store in the north west of Sheffield. Folk have been so generous and pleasant that it really restores your faith in people.

Your Say 1
disabled spaces

Ignorant generation

To the ignorant old man who got on the 27 bound for Aston with his equally ignorant wife, and the two equally ignorant pensioners who were at the front of the bus directly behind the wheelchair and pram space that I was occupying with my son in his pram.

Your Say 4
Air pollution above Meadowhall from Wincobank Hill

Air pollution will just get even worse

If the Star round table discussion, (Star November 6), on air pollution is to lead to improvements it will require joined-up thinking by the council.

Your Say 1
20mph

Inaccurate arguments

Mike Lawton continues his campaign against 20mph speed limits, resorting to incomplete or inaccurate arguments to make his case.

Your Say
The tourist information office in Surrey Street, Sheffield city centre.

Tourist Information plan a retrograde step

Having read the concerns of various like minded Sheffielders regarding the closure of the Sheffield Tourist Information Office, (a former glass- fronted florists), I thought it was time to add my tenpennorth.

Pigeons at The Moor are becoming a problem

Cute things

As sure as night follows day Mrs S Richardson would add her comments to anybody wanting to cull wild pigeons.

Peter Westwood and Patricia Simkiss

What happened to Peter Westwood?

I was recently on holiday in Jersey and being there brought back memories of another holiday in Jersey many years ago.

Your Say
Trees

Are they insane?

Sheffield City Council and Amey are intending to fell one of Sheffield’s most iconic trees, the Vernon oak on Vernon Road at Dore. This tree is a veteran of its species, 150-200 years old. It began its life in a field boundary before the road was made, and is part of our history in the landscape.

Pigeons at The Moor are becoming a problem

Pigeons’ vital service during World War II

I would like to respond to the letter from Gary Crosby, (Star, November 4), who questions the veracity of my claim that pigeons are not classed as vermin and says that “the general consensus so far as I could ascertain was that feral pigeons are indeed widely considered to be vermin”.

RIP Labour Party?

Many letters criticise the Labour Party and not unjustly.
