Traffic madness

This is a typical scene at Malin Bridge during the morning rush.

News report on a loop

News report on a loop

I appreciate the news value of the so-called terrorist incident in Westminster but must we really have all the repeat footage and interviews on the BBC news?

Parents need to hold their nerve on schools

Firstly, the quango that is Ofsted should be abolished in its present form; it drains obscene amounts of public money, money that could be better spent on resources in the education system.

Ofsted must be abolished

Ofsted must be abolished

Anyone with common sense doesn’t listen to Ofsted, whose report branded Ecclesfield School “inadequate” leaving parents and family members shocked and mystified by their findings.

The Rt Rev Philip North, the next Bishop of Sheffield

I have great sympathy with Bishop Philip

My last letter regarding Philip North was overtaken by events and not published, but although it is important to move on following his withdrawal from his proposed appointment I would like to make two brief points in response to Michael Meehan’s letter in the Star of March 20.

Memorial trees

Memorial trees

When Sheffield City Council has the war memorial trees removed by their contractor Amey, after the chainsaws fall silent, when they have removed a hundred years of honour from our streets, what will they do with the wood?

Memories of bridges and hidden rivers

Alex Moore’s article on the “City’s Hidden Rivers” triggered some memories for me.

Reprieve for Uni Arms

Reprieve for Uni Arms

The reprieve for the University Arms is a victory for public opinion and good sense. Let’s now see it open on a Sunday as a welcome alternative watering hole for those frequenting Weston Park and the adjacent area.

We should not expect promises to be kept

Like J Robin Hughes, (Deal or no deal, March 15), I was also prompted to further research Article 50 on reading Mathew Hobson’s earlier letter, discovering articles leading me to arrive at a different conclusion.
