Egluntine however much you Sheffielders recon, Robin Hood is not yours, he belongs in the Midlands.




What is this all about Martin?


Where in any of my posts have I claimed that Robin Hood belongs to Sheffield? Or even mentioned him for that matter :?


I happen to be voting for Sherwood Forest because it is a place of great beauty and history and I'm very fond of it, having spent many happy hours there with my children when they were small.


I wouldn't mind betting that it is closer to Sheffield than it is to Alcester.


And for the record....I'm not a Sheffielder. I am a Mancunian.

Regards Robin Hood I understand that he actually came from Doncaster. I'm sure the Business Airport in Doncaster has been renamed Robin Hood Airport as a bit of a statement but I may be talking nonsense!



You are right about the airport Daniel.


We have an area called Loxley in Sheffield so I think we can lay a certain amount of claim to the legend as Robin Hood was supposed to have some connection there.

Just voted :D


It was a close run thing, I very, very nearly voted for the Black Country as it sounds like they are planning some great regeneration in a pretty neglected area, but in the end I opted for Sustrans because it does look as if their projects are spread wide nationally and that a great many communities will benefit. The fact that they've also got a great project planned for my home town did also sway the vote :roll::lol::lol::lol::lol:


Some great ideas and worthy causes there though 8)

[Egluntine"]In which case he looks familiar. League of Gentlemen?


That be him. Not League of Gentleman, he is a one man sort of stand up show with an electronic piano thingy, very much an acquired taste, definitely my taste :) He used to have a slot on Radio 4. I have seen ALL his shows,

and have tapes of all the radio shows :oops: Yes he was Jilted John and had a brief hit with his record. Anyway, he is from Sheffield, South Yorkshire and always mentions it in his shows. The best way to describe his humour is David Brent/Tommy Cooper plus a dash of hugely funny bum clenching stuff. All good clean fun, which makes a change these days :)
