The unsung heroes of hospitals trust

My name is Jim and for the last 18 months I have been a trainer for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust. I am due to move on to pastures new but I thought I would share some of my thoughts.

City tree destruction

When Sheffield’s £2.2bn Streets Ahead highway maintenance PFI project began, in 2012, mature trees accounted for 73.8 per cent of all highway trees in the city.

Central Library

It seems insensitive in a time of imposed austerity to be thinking of setting up a five-star hotel in Sheffield.

How does he know?

You report Coun Jack Scott’s fanciful idea that our city’s people will in future ‘rue the day’ that they voted to save the Central Library and Graves Art Gallery building from sale.

Population growth

Why are Nick Clegg, John Major and Richard Branson determined to cling on to the EU?

Taxi drivers from Bacup

Taxi drivers from Bacup

There has been quite a lot of correspondence recently about taxi drivers who have registered in other local authorities which have less stringent regulations than coming to Sheffield to ply for trade. Recently many of the taxis I have seen in Sheffield have been from Rossendale District ( Bacup, East Lancashire).

Jack on the ouija board

So councillor Jack Scott has been on the ouija board to get in touch with JG Graves and knows he would have said get on with it.

Advert

No need for advert to be size of a building

Councillor Jack Scott, cabinet member for community services and libraries, said last week that he understood the ‘affection and genuine care’ that the people had for the ‘iconic’ Sheffield Central library building. I wonder if he really does? More importantly, does he care?

Cigarette Packs

A thing of beauty

I have just finished examining one of these new “plain packaging” cigarette packs and it truly is a monstrosity. In that unerring way governments have of laying waste to everything of wonder they have cast their hex on this.

Rustlings Road

Ashamed of their Council

Much has been written about Rustlings Road and the battle to save its lime trees. Sadly the protesters lost that battle, but is Sheffield Council losing the war to protect its reputation?

Be afraid, be very afraid

I sometimes wonder where Sheffield Council gets its ideas from and I refer to the Star headline last Friday to ban smoking outside!

End of democracy is wide of the mark

Susan Richardson sadly adds to the hysteria about the tree felling. Her letter is full of silly exaggerations, but I want to comment in particular on her comments about the ‘death of democracy’.
