I just went to watch the football at the lovely new Stadium. Local people very friendly and beer in the pub at £2.20 a pint was very welcome - a bit different in Brighton! Just noted your final questions - Rotherham United no longer play at Millmoor. It is the very new New York Street Stadium

We visit Rotherham sometimes for shopping in the town centre as it is near where we live in Sheffield. We also like going to the Mecca Bingo and enjoy a meal and a drink while there too
