Take Two with Colin Drury

Have your say

SO, what will you be doing with that penny you save every time you have a pint, following last week’s budget?

Probably nothing as it seems the vast majority of pubs and breweries, as reported in The Star, won’t pass on the saving to drinkers.

Except, that is, down at The Fat Cat, in Alma Street, Kelham Island. They’ll be taking the penny off the price of all Kelham Island Brewery ales for one day only today.

“But we’ll be encouraging customers to put their penny change in a St Luke’s charity box which will be on the bar,” says manager Duncan Shaw.

Which means you can officially go out for a jar and say it’s all for a good cause.

AND so on the same day the £350 million, 1 million square foot, state-of-the-art Trinity Leeds shopping centre opened last week, it was announced the old TJ Hughes in Sheffield’s High Street will be turned into a Sports Direct, Poundland and British Heart Foundation store.

Does anyone else find that rather depressing?

LOVE where you live? Most Sheffielders do, according to a special report in this paper last week.

But what was most striking was how so many different people from so many different neighbourhoods all gave one reason above others for their love of their own patch: close to the country and close to the city.

It seems wherever you live in this, England’s fourth biggest city, an affinity with the Peaks is never far away.
