    A pile of waste has built up in Sheffield city centre in recent weeks, leading to problems with vermin and the spread of rubbish throughout the street. The Sheffield Star has reported that John White, who works at Cutlers’ Hall in the city centre said: “This rubbish has been lying around for a few weeks. You would think this sort of behaviour would be stamped on quickly.” The O2 phone shop on Fargate in Sheffield city centre has been accused of leaving huge piles of rubbish behind their shop, adding to the litter problem in the city.

    House Clearance Sheffield Experts

    As house clearance Sheffield experts, Clearance and Clean Up have noticed that Sheffield city centre has been plagued by unwanted waste and rubbish recently, most of which lies around for weeks before it is removed. There has also been an issue with the homeless ripping open the bin bags in their search for food and valuables, therefore spreading the rubbish around further.

    A spokesman from 02 has responded to the complaint and admitted that they were responsible for the rubbish. John Mailey from 02 said “Unfortunately, there was a misunderstanding between the waste company and the landlord, who manages the collection of waste from our shop, resulting in a missed collection. The problem has been resolved and the waste cleared. We apologise if this may have caused any inconvenience.”

    The Keep Britain Tidy Campaign

    Keep Britain Tidy was created 60 years ago, and wants more government action on litter instead of leaving it to local authorities. Some councils hand out hundreds of fines a year for littering, while others tread more carefully because of negative publicity. More than 63,000 fines were handed out in councils in England in 2012.

    Unfortunately, litter is a problem all over the UK. According to a recent survey by Keep Britain Tidy, almost two thirds of us are litter bugs. However, only 28% are actually willing to admit that they drop their rubbish. A massive £1bn a year is spent on collecting litter in England alone, and the survey expressed particular concern over the amount of littler created by cigarettes, fast food, soft drinks, sweet and chocolate bar wrappers and crisps packets.

    Clearance and Clean Up house clearance Sheffield dispose of waste correctly, including recycling as much as they can. All of their prices include labour and disposal fee, there are no hidden charges, and you can rest assured that your waste goes to a proper licensed disposal facility.

                  Top Quality Carpet Fitting with These Trimming Knife Blades

                  leave a comment

                  Be Sociable, Share!

                    By following a set regime, carpet fitters can make sure they always work to a high standard. Taking responsibility for everything from training to the tools that you use should stand you in good stead. Knife-Point have taken a look at 5 points which are worth bearing in mind – including the use of trimming knife blades

                    Take Care to Select the Right Staff

                    Make sure you have the right team behind you. In all likelihood, you’ll be working with at least one other person – whether it’s for carpet fitting at commercial or domestic premises – so it pays to pick your staff wisely. If you have confidence in their ability and have made sure that they’re well trained, you shouldn’t run into any difficulties.

                    Tailor to the Size of the Job

                    For cost-effectiveness, you need to pick the size of your team appropriately. If you’re just fitting carpets for a couple of rooms in a small home, you’re not going to need more than a couple of pairs of hands. In contrast to this, if you’re working on a carpet refit for large commercial premises, then one or two people aren’t going to be enough for you to carry out the work quickly.

                    Great Materials Pay Dividends

                    Better materials will ensure a higher standard of completed work. This doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on the products that you source; you just need to research where you get them from. By doing so, you’ll learn where you can get the best deals; both for your finances and those of your customers.

                    Trimming Knife Blades from Knife-Point

                    Making sure you have the right tools is perhaps the most important factor in any carpet fitting job. When cutting materials, it’s essential that you’re able to work precisely and for the implementation of the work there is no better product than Knife-Point’s trimming knife blades. With plenty of choice available to you – both in size and quantity – they’re sure to be ideal.

                    Customer Testimonials are Invaluable

                    With every job you work on you’ll want to make an impression and when you do this, it makes sense to record the happiness of the customer. Simply asking them to put a few words together for you is easy to do and it could well pay dividends for you in the long run. A great way to help you get repeat custom is through the publication of client testimonials on your website.

                    Excellent Trimming Knife Blades from Sheffield Supplier

                    Knife-Point also offer a number of other cutting tool ranges to their customers, as well as their trimming knife blades. Snap off blades and planer blades are two other examples of products that our popular with their clients. To find out more, why not give them a call today on 07737133030?

                      Nottingham Wedding Photographer Engagement and Pre Wedding Photography

                      leave a comment

                      Be Sociable, Share!

                        As a professional wedding photographer in Nottinghamshire and Mansfield, I have come across lots of people who are slightly uncomfortable at having the camera pointed at them. It can be even more daunting to have someone you don’t know very well pointing that camera at you. That’s why I think it can be a good idea to schedule in a little pre-wedding photography session so that you can get to know me, get comfy with me, and allow me to get a feel for what you hope to achieve from your wedding photography on your big day.

                        A pre wedding or engagement photo shoot is a fantastic way to get you and your partner ready for your official wedding photography. Some people are total naturals when it comes to having their photo taken, and really enjoy the process. But for others, it can mean feeling a little self conscious and uncomfortable!

                        Steph and Joel’s Pre-Wedding Engagement Photography Session

                        This is a great example of an engagement shoot that I was lucky enough to capture in some beautiful photographs of a bride and groom to be. We ventured into a wild flower project run by Donaster Council, and then moved on to Kings Wood outside Bawtry to capture the golden glow from the setting sun. I’m particularly fond of the shot of Steph and Joel bathed in sunlight surrounded by an array of beautiful, colourful flowers. I love the way that the evening sun illuminates their figures and intensifies the vibrancy of the flowers.

                        Getting Used to Being in Front of the Camera

                        Pre-wedding or engagement photography sessions are a great way to ease you in to your wedding photography. Establishing a rapport is really important in helping you to achieve natural, relaxed wedding photography that you can look back on with pride. My aim is to put you at ease in front of the camera so that you can fully relax and enjoy being photographed. It’s also the perfect opportunity to have some fun, play around with ideas you may have, and find out exactly what works best for you!

                        Nottingham and Mansfield Wedding Photography

                        If you’d like a pre-wedding or engagement photo shoot, or you’re looking for a Nottingham wedding photographer, I can help. Please visit the Contact Page of the website to get in touch, or to make a request for our 2015 brochure.

                          Sheffield City Centre Transformation Completion Date Announced

                          leave a comment

                          Be Sociable, Share!

                            Recent reports claim that the new and long awaited Sheffield retail quarter will be finished by 2021, including 50 new shops, 120 flats, and up to 2,300 car parking spaces. The scheme is set to cost a huge £480 million, but is estimated to create up to 2,500 new jobs in the area.

                            The director of capital and major projects Nalin Seneviratne said: “2019 is when the bulk of the scheme is going to be completed, the final parts by Easter 2010, it might even be by 2020.” He also commented that the timing was ‘perfect’ because it was post recession and the retail industry had changed.

                            Failed Sevenstone Scheme Replaced with New Plans

                            The designs will replace the failed Sevenstone scheme between Pinstone Street, Moorhead and Barker’s Pool, and residents have been urged to put their thoughts across in order to help to ‘shape’ the project before the outline plans are finalised. Councillor Leigh Bramall, cabinet member for business, said: “This is the chance for people to play a major part of what the city will look like in the next 20, 30, 40 and 50 years.”

                            Sheffield Residents Voice Scepticism

                            However, as we’ve mentioned before in previous blog posts, Sheffield residents seem to be incredibly dubious about whether or not the plans will actually be put into fruition, with one comment to the story simply reading ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’. Despite the positivity from Sheffield Council, however, the article in the Sheffield Star reveals that although there has been some interest from developers and retailers, the scheme is yet to confirm an investor.

                            Local People Contributing to Design

                            As professional shop sign makers in Sheffield, Image Sign Studio think that it’s an interesting idea to ask the residents of Sheffield to be able to contribute ideas towards the designs. The people of Sheffield really care about this space, and the new plans would mean that the city centre would have an amazing retail space. Plans also include a new cycle hub, facilities for ‘click and collect’ online ordering, and a food court.

                            Shop Sign Makers in Sheffield

                            Image Sign Studio are experts in shop signs Sheffield and welcome the new plans to bring more retail outlets to the city centre. Putting Sheffield on the map as a desirable shopping location to rival that of Leeds and Birmingham is a really fantastic idea, and they sincerely hope that the plans and developments are a viable and realistic way to rejuvenate the centre of Sheffield.

                                As we begin to approach some spells of warmer weather, Diverso’s glass balconies can come in particularly handy. When added to your residential property, they can simultaneously help you to enjoy the outdoors and admire surrounding views. What better way can you think of to enjoy the summer months than from your own crafted platform extended out from your home?

Pubs and restaurants looking to make an impression on their clients can use one from both an aesthetic and practical perspective.

                                As a truly breathtaking interior design piece for your home, it’s hard to think of a better addition than one of Diverso’s feature staircases.

The positives are endless and this company can design your own to match the budget you have available.

                                  Air Source Heat Pumps Made up 45% Share of Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Installs

                                  leave a comment

                                  Be Sociable, Share!

                                    In February 2015, air source heat pumps made up a 45% share of the domestic renewable heat incentive install charts. According to Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Magazine, records show over 400 applications submitted for new domestic air source heat pump applications, and the second month in a row that they have been the most popular technology in the domestic renewable heat incentive.

                                    Air Source Heat Pump Installations

                                    The renewable heat incentive pays owners of renewable technology such as air source heat pumps for every unit of heat produced for up to seven years. The domestic renewable heat incentive can make the installation of such technology a great financial investment, and one that will continue to pay out for a number of years. To be eligible for the scheme, you’ll need to have a Green Deal Assessment carried out on your home, and employ an approved MCS installer to be eligible. The domestic RHI rate for air source heat pumps is 7.3p/kWh, paid over seven years.

                                    Second Most Popular Technology

                                    Air source heat pumps have been the second most popular technology since the launch of the renewable heat incentive scheme, with 29% of new installations and February’s 402 installations outstripping 384 in November.

                                    Air Source Heat Pumps and my Home

                                    In order to be able to have an air source heat pump installed in your home, firstly you need to own your own home. If you rent, however, you must make sure that you have the permission of the landlord. In order to be eligible for claiming the payments from the government, you must have a certain level of insulation in your home. You must also have enough outdoor space to be able to accommodate the air source heat pump, and currently heat your home using oil, solid fuel, LPG or electricity.

                                    Installers of Air Source Heat Pumps Sheffield and Yorkshire

                                    As renewable energy products, air source heat pumps installed by Phaseline Renewables will qualify for the renewable heat incentive.

                                        When you take into account the Renewable Heat Incentive payments and the fuel savings, the total financial generation from a biomass boiler over a number of years can be substantial.

                                        As professional biomass installers in Sheffield, Yorkshire and Derbyshire, Phaseline Renewables carried out a recent biomass installation for Mr and Mrs Smith in Derby. The couple had an old oil fired boiler that had seen better days; it was very old and really on its last legs. They replaced their old boiler with an OkoFEN PES56 45-56kw wood pellet biomass boiler.

                                        For ease of automation, the Smiths opted for a 5-6.2 tonne bulk hopper to feed their biomass boiler so that they would not have to manually fill it themselves on a regular basis. This uses a vacuum transfer system to lift the pellets from the store in to the boiler, making it hassle free for the couple. OkoFen are a leading Austrian manufacturer of biomass boilers with an outstanding reputation for manufacturing pellet boilers.

                                        The idea of a biomass boiler installation caught their attention due to the rising cost of oil and the uncertainly of its cost in the future. Mr and Mrs Smith had also heard of the domestic renewable heat incentive, which would help to pay for the system and earn them money too. They saw the installation of the biomass boiler, therefore, as a fantastic investment opportunity, and were taken with the idea of regular financial payments from the RHI scheme. The biomass boiler now provides heating and hot water for the couple’s large detached barn property, which, due to its significant size, generates a healthy renewable heat incentive payment.

                                        The biomass boiler installation will see Mr and Mrs Smith £11,000 per year better off. This is due to the savings that they will make by not using oil, and paying for pellets to run the boiler instead, and payments that they will receive from the renewable heat incentive through the government scheme.  Over the course of 20 years, the couple will generate almost a 50% return on their initial investment.
