Have your say

A LITTLE reaction to this page’s feature on La Chambre swingers club on Monday, then. And that’s not just referring to the furtive phone call from a gent requesting the number.

Not everyone, it seems, agrees with suggestions the Attercliffe venue could be used to potentially help turn the area into a tourist-attracting mini-Amsterdam.

David Slater, chairman of the Attercliffe Business Connection, emails: “We have been working with Sheffield City Council for five years on a regeneration plan for the Lower Don Valley Corridor. We do not see a sex district as part of the plan for a thriving commercial district with housing, sport and leisure focus.”

A fair point.

* INCIDENTALLY, the club’s owner Barry Calvert also emails in - to say he liked the piece.

“Keep up the good work,” he writes. “And you know where to come if you want a good night out.”

Yes. The Leadmill.

* GOOD to know sssspoof posters claiming venomous snakes were on the loose in Ranmoor didn’t fool locals.

The notices were stuck on lampposts across the suburb, as reported in this paper.

But police say the hoax was soon discovered. Seems pranksters will have to try adder than that to catch residents out. Ba-boom.

* CONTINUING our semi-(ir)regular series of Sheffield landmarks with their own Twitter account: the new Moor market is now on the social networking site.

So, hopefully that means followers can keep fully up to date as the development inevitably falls behind schedule.

* TALKING of The Moor, officials say the thoroughfare’s new revamp, revealed in this paper yesterday, will turn it into the ‘Oxford Street of Sheffield’. Stop laughing at the back.

* A SHEFFIELD pub has launched a competition for customers to come up with the perfect pie filling, then?

The Peacock Inn, in Owler Bar, wants suggestions on what would make the ideal dish.

Meat and potato. Dash of Henderson’s. Competition over.
