And, new for 2016, on Boxing Day in Rotherham as well, thanks to the Bus Partnership?
Of course, there will be no printed publicity for the festive season (and a Merry Christmas to you, Travel South Yorkshire!), so the hundreds of thousands of folk who don't (or can't) go on-line will have to rely on hearsay and rumour or, most likely, stay at home.
TSY doesn't tell is who operates these routes.
So what's Grimey got that the rest of South Yorkshire and most of the rest of the UK hasn't got? It's got XPO Logistics!
XPO Logistics was founded in May 1989 by Michael Welch and Keith Avery as Express-1 Expedited Solutions, which specialised in time-critical, high-value shipments. The company was purchased in August 2004 by Segmentz, Inc., a transportation firm that traded publicly as NYSE AMEX: SZI. In 2006, Segmentz changed its name to Express-1 Expedited Solutions, which had become its main operating unit, and began trading its stock under the new symbol XPO.
In September 2011, American businessman Bradley Jacobs gained approximately 71 percent ownership in Express-1 when he led an investment of up to $150 million, including up to $135 million through his firm Jacobs Private Equity LLC, which is XPO's largest stockholder. He assumed the roles of chairman of the board and CEO, announced plans to move the company's headquarters from Michigan to Greenwich, CT, (USA!) and changed its name to XPO Logistics.
Now we know.
The GMB trade union claims warehouse staff are so tightly regulated on their work rate that there is no time for some to make the 15 minute walk’ to and from the loo – and have to use the drinking fountain instead.
The union claims workers are expected to ‘pick’ 65 items an hour from a vast network of shelves at the distribution centre in Barnsley, South Yorks and might be expected to pick about 800 in the course of a shift, walking up to 15 miles in the process.
Deanne Ferguson, regional organiser for the GMB, said: “This leaves staff with no other choice but to use the water stations to urinate in.
“Some ASOS workers are suffering sickening indignity which must stop. ASOS must explain to its employees why they are treating them with such contempt and denying them common decency.
“The people of Barnsley care and will be disgusted to hear these reports. Workers at ASOS are genuinely scared as they have been told their jobs will be at risk if they resist, so the GMB has had to organise underground in ASOS.”
The online fashion retailer strongly denies the claims and says there are toilets within four minutes of every point of the warehouse which employs around 4,000 people.
Some of these 4000 will be working all over Christmas, hence the need for bus services. These are timed for shift changes throughout the holiday period.
But Rotherham has another holiday period "except for" on Boxing Day.
So what has Maltby got that the rest of Rotherham hasn't? Answer, absolutely nothing! Earlier this year the former route 69 between Sheffield and Rotherham was speeded up (not much), diverted via Meadowhell shopping centre and linked with former services 1 and 2 to Maltby.
... we read on the sixth day of "creation" in the book of Genesis. So those who want God to get rid of evil "at a stroke" will see that the environment was perfection "in the beginning".
The Bible does not demand that these stories are taken literally, although some believers are happy to treat them thus. "Adam" means "the man" and Eve means "the source of life" i.e. woman! So the poetic ideas depicted in Genesis 1 are a clear statement about how the ideal "man" and "woman" developed.
So God created mankind in His own image; in the image of God he created them - male and female he created them. (Genesis 1 verses 27).
And there's the snag. Give your top creation the ability to think, to decide, to develop, to invent and investigate - free will, it's called, an attribute of the Divine - and the price you pay is the risk that wrong choices will be made.
And only one little wrong makes the perfect imperfect.
