    Judge Criticises Herefordshire Council's Past Practice

    Council receives judgment from Family Court


    Herefordshire Council has received a judgment from Family Court, which highlights specific past failures in the application of section 20 of The Children Act 1989 (which applies to Looked After Children and their parents). Herefordshire Council deeply regrets these past failings and has changed its practice to reduce the likelihood of similar cases occurring in future.  Herefordshire continues to work to keep children in Herefordshire safe and give them the best start in life.

    Director for Children’s Wellbeing, Chris Baird said:


    “In the past, Herefordshire Council has lacked a consistent focus in achieving permanency for children held under section 20 of The Children Act. We undertook a comprehensive review of our practice during 2016/17 and developed new guidance and processes to ensure children's needs are appropriately met.

    “Herefordshire Council now has a clear approach to managing and reviewing children admitted to care under section 20, which involves legal advice at the start and ensures children do not remain under section 20 for extended periods.”

    Mr Justice Keehan acknowledged the recent changes in our approach which should reduce the likelihood of similar cases in future and was positive about the current approach in Herefordshire.

    Professor Stephen Hawking dies aged 76

    'We have lost a National Treasure'

    Professor Stephen Hawking dies aged 76 and was one of the most brilliant scientists of his generation.


    The man who made astro-physics understandable

    His most famous book 'A Brief History of Time' explained the origins of the universe in terms a non scientist could relate to. Published in 1988, A Brief History of Time became a huge hit, selling 10 million copies and being translated into 35 languages.

    He had visited Hereford several times, most recently in 2015 when the Professor dropped in on a Roller Derby training session and also back in 2014 as one of a party of eminent physicists visiting the city’s cathedral, where they saw the famous Mappa Mundi. 

    Following the cathedral visit, Professor Hawking and his colleagues visited Saxty's bar for a champagne tasting event.

    According to the FT Carillion could well go into Administration as early as tomorrow which could well mean the loss of thousands of jobs not just direct employees but also the thousands of sub contracted employees.

    Should this be allowed to happen?

    Should the Government bail them?

    There are so many unanswered questions not least of all why have the Government continued to give them contracts when they should have known about the Company's financial state - due dilligence? 

    The Banks have continued to prop them up why?

    Whichever way this goes it will affect the whole country
