  1. Sheffield Fun-Fairs

    I recall that fair too in the 1950s and early 60s- I think it was Lings.
  2. Favourite Sheffield meal?

    My dad did a poor man's version of that - no marmite And Steve - I still sometimes do extra veg and potatoes for a bubble & squeak on Monday.
  3. Sheffield history fair

    They take a lot of organizing by volunteers and it is normally biannual anyway.
  4. Sheffield history fair

    No history fair this year but there is an event here that may be of interest Sat and Sun - http://www.museums-sheffield.org.uk/whats-on/events/2017/9/sheffield-heritage-fair2
  5. Shock Horror I am not on Facebook

    I think life is too short for facebook or twitter so I do neither. I do have mobile but never use it and only my very close family have my number. The day I ring them they know it will be an emergency. I just make an occasional call to my landline to keep it active.
