The Oval Building Site

06 Jan 2016

Posted by DILLIGAF in The Oval

It has come to my attention that there has been a considerable amount of anger & frustration at the regeneration of 'The Oval' over on Mybook Facespace or whatever it is? :Hmm: In particular, construction traffic and muddy roads etc. As I have been briefed, the case is, that someone will get run over by the construction traffic, excessive amounts of mud on the roads and health and safety issues amongst others; One jolly fellow even posted the site managers phone number and email :Surprised_32:, the disbelief! Its not that hard to find!!

As I live on said construction site, in their defence, they have two sweepers constantly on the go daily, one is done by the forklift drivers with a big brush, the other is a contracted Wye Valley scarab thingy! The construction traffic will always allow traffic to pass where feasible, and wait if you are approaching. The trouble is really from other road users who have no consideration when parking at the oval and those who are racing around the site trying to short-cut the Belmont road traffic; many times I have had a near miss from oncoming traffic, who are speeding and unaware of the the Highway Code.

Then you have the school walk folk moaning about how their kids are going to get knocked over on the road! Hello! - What are they doing on the road in the first place? As I too do the nursery ride, I use the lines, gaining entry from Newman Close, avoiding most of the construction traffic and using the highway code, and not using the Belmont road entry as most of these 'moaners' do. There is also the Ethelstan Crescent entry for those that live further up.

As for Health and Safety, quit the fags, do more exercise than just walking the kids to school and keep your kids under control; You may live longer and keep your kids safe in the process! There are frequent site visits from H&S personnel, and I’m damn sure if there were any issues they will be dealt with immediately.

Oh and as of Monday 11th the Oval road will be shut. :Grin:  So you'll have to walk further or use Goodrich Grove. The Oval Shops will be open for business as normal.


Rant over.

If someone would like to share to the Facespace page please do. :Thumbs-Up:

Rich, Neil, Dave and the Keepmoat team have kept me happy.

Hereford Racecourse to reopen

21 Jan 2016

Posted by Ubique in Open Forum
From BBC Sports .

Hereford racecourse - controversially closed down by owners Arena Racing Company in December 2012 - is to reopen for business in October.

Up to four fixtures are to be staged with more in 2017.

Hereford was shut in 2012 after 241 years of racing - the first recorded meeting there was in August 1771.

However, ARC said at the time the venue was no longer viable, citing the recession and the rise of internet betting on other sports.

Illuminati,NWO,conspiracy theory's & the impendin...

08 Jan 2016

Posted by lpusseycat in Open Forum

The thing to note is After the shooting BBC interviewed 2 witnesses one was American one was English you did not see there faces .Ask yourself the question no French people around in that part of Paris seems odd it is the contrived plan by the Illuminati to put everyone in a false sense of fear. They create a problem wait for the peoples reaction then offer a solution that fits there agenda. Go on you tube and read about Albert Pikes letter to Manzzini written in 1878 then try and tell me i am wrong in what i have just written.

Three Counties Hotel Sold

05 Nov 2015

Posted by Colin James in Belmont

I have heard from several sources over the past week that The Three Counties Hotel on Belmont Road may have been sold. 


Three Counties Hotel.jpg


Back in the middle of the summer I had heard that it had been sold to a local person who has care homes in and around Hereford but apparently that all fell through.


This latest news is only a rumour at this stage but it came from a good source. Has anyone heard the same thing? I may give Daniel a call and ask the question.

Hereford council survey

09 Feb 2016

Posted by DILLIGAF in Open Forum
Please do take the time to fill this in. I was unaware of this until today, whereas only 0.02% of the 56000 people in Hereford have filled it in.
It's our county and what needs to be done. Don't complain if you don't fill it in. It even mentions a bypass!!

Please tell everyone you know to complete it.

Hereford times strikes again

15 Jan 2016

Posted by DILLIGAF in Open Forum
Yet more great journalism from Hereford Times!! http://m.herefordtim...ital_operation/
At a time when our great hospital is at breaking point and already in the media for all the wrong reasons.
This story has no reflection on anything related to the current media coverage. The NHS did what it could for this gravely ill elderly patient in MAY, why Hereford Times felt the need to report it now is beyond me.
Many people have tragically lost their lives daily in the hospital, after all they are there for palliative care, some will make it some won't.
Are Hereford Times going to report on every one? It disgusts me.
Report on something significant that concerns us, BILL WIGGIN extra curricular activities, not this tripe. But no you pull that one! Why?

Freedom Church Back In The News.

17 Jan 2015

Posted by dippyhippy in Open Forum

I meant to post this last night, but forgot!


I see that Freedom Church is making headlines once again, for all the wrong reasons. Over at Hereford Times an article states that they have been asked to leave Swansea University Campus, after blitzing it with leaflets, and holding religious services on site.


Not the first time their recruitment methods have been questioned. Anyone else remember the campaign which saw lollipops handed out to children outside the school gates? Tactics which at best could be described as showing a complete lack of judgement, at worst, rather sinister.


I also seem to recall being told that at one point in the not too distant past, a company whose staff consisted of  several leading lights within this church, had been given a contract to deliver sex education to pupils in some Herefordshire Schools. 


I have real concerns about this pay to pray organisation. 


How do others feel?

EU referendum - In or Out?

25 May 2015

Posted by megilleland in Open Forum

With the General Election now over - there is possibly only two years (2017) before we get a referendum on whether to stay in the EU or get out. Having believed we would have had a change of government, nationally and locally by now, I do not have much confidence that any referendum will be conducted fairly in order that the ruling poitical parties get the result they and the EU want.


What are the benefits of being in or out for Hereford and the county? Maybe some information and facts through this topic could help us make a reasoned decision when voting, although I think we will be staying in the EU at any cost. Not for the benefit of the citizens, but for all those entwined in the machinations of the EU political and monetary systems.

06 Dec 2015

Posted by Glenda Vaughan-Powell in Open Forum



One of Hereford's oldest pubs will be back open before Christmas.
The Booth Hall closed shortly after the High Town blaze 5 years ago, access from St Peter's Square was closed off after the fire which impacted on the pubs trade.
However, a statement posted on Facebook this weekend states the pub will be back open on December 18. The post explains that the historic pub will focus on live music and entertainment when it reopens.
