Justice for the Ninety Six.

26 Apr 2016

Posted by bobby47 in Open Forum
At last! Since that dreadful day in 1989 the families of the dead, their friends and relatives and the people of Liverpool have fought them all in their pursuit of the truth and now, over a quarter of a century later, they've finally crossed the finishing line and won a great victory against all those who lied, secreted the facts and tried to place the blame at the feet of Liverpool supporters and the great people of Liverpool.
The political establishment, the Police, most notably the Sun newspaper, they all lied and secreted their wrongdoings to the detriment of all who grieved following the Hillsborough disaster and now it's all over. The Ninety Six were unlawfully killed! This is a victory, not only for the Ninety Six and all the people of Liverpool, but a victory for the power of people who refused to give in.

Belmont Community Centre

15 Apr 2016

Posted by Tracy Bowes in Open Forum

I am very pleased to announce that South Wye Community Association (Belmont Community Centre) has been shortlisted in the "Local Community Award" category of the Herefordshire Community Champions Awards for 2016.


The final of the awards evening will take place on 29 April 2016 at the Shire Hall and we are all delighted to have been nominated and shortlisted for the final.


The Community Centre at Belmont continues to develop the services that we offer, we have a very active weekly coffee morning every Friday from 10 am, where we regularly meet over forty people.  We also hold two lunch clubs a month where fresh food is prepared and cooked for over forty local residents.


Since the closure of the main library in Hereford our footfall has continued to grow with around 40,000 people in the last year.  The licence for the year 2016/2017 is due to be signed and we know the library will remain in Belmont until at least the 31 March 2017. (Licences are issued on a yearly basis).


We also have a large number of user groups who hire the centre and we are considering extending the services that we offer to include "well being".  We hope to publish more information on our plans in the near future. 


In the meantime if you would like to volunteer at the centre or would just like to know more about us, please call in and see us.  You are guaranteed a warm welcome.


Finally, I would just personally like to thank all of the volunteers, trustees and users of the centre for all of the hard work, dedication and commitment shown by them.  Long may it continue and we look forward to a successful future.


I will keep you updated on the competition result :)

Leak in H/H roof damages furniture


Posted by ragwert in Open Forum

My Niece has had a leak in the roof of her flat that has caused damage to bedroom furniture (mould on wood slats/mattress & bedding).
Hereford housing are refusing to pay for their replacement.Surely this should not be the case.
Anyone else here had a similar experience?

Herefordshire Council is considering selling off its' 5 thousand acres of farmland. It could raise 48 million pounds - as massive chunk of the 60 million pounds the authority needs to save in the next 3 years. The land is a huge asset though and has risen in value every year for the last decade. At a meeting this afternoon the council's Scrutiny Committee will recommended either a partial sale will some starter and progression farms kept on OR the sale of the entire estate. The sale will leave 51 families without their homes and businesses. Ian and Lorraine Salmon farm 66 acres near Leominster - they've just had their first child Isobel and face an uncertain future.....................

Does anybody know the outcome of this meeting?

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.

Jesse Norman M.P & Bill Wigan M.P...WHY??

26 Apr 2016

Posted by Solidus snake in Open Forum
I've just seen this post on facebook. It is about the vote to grant 3000 children right of refuge here in the U.k . It names all of the M.Ps who voted against the bill and to my horror both local Representatives of parliament are named on this list.

Here is the link if anyone is curious


Does anyone else here feel our "honourable" M.Ps need to explain their actions here? After all it isn't like these children are likely to be a threat to our national security. They are only kids and honestly I feel if we can help save even a few from the hell they are in currently then we absolutely must

Sorry about the rant guys,this has just left me quite angry at our M.Ps tbh

Widemarsh St pedestrianised hours

06 Apr 2016

Posted by Bilbobobby in Open Forum
As you know traffic is prohibited from entering or leaving the High Town side of Widemarsh St., between 1030 & 1630 daily. We all also know the council failed to put in place traffic regulations to prevent/manage parking at all times.
So what's happening
At great expense the road layout was upgraded with a defined road and footpaths. Now mornings involve cars and delivery vehicles filling the delivery bays and straddling the footpaths. This is further compounded with builders vans parking on the footpaths all day whilst working at the new fish restaurant.
Car owners have caught on quite quickly to beat the parking costs and parking all day for free. Cyclists ride along the street (road and footpath) in both directions all day.
So how long will it be before harm is caused to pedestrians through driver disregard and no enforcement.
Worcester has a similar problem in The Shambles with an elderly lady crushed by a lorry last year. The council there are undertaking a public consultation to see what the local needs are
Who is the enforcement authority and who will take responsibility and sort out the obvious dangers that I feel will get worse

The Ship Inn Proposal

10 Nov 2015

Posted by Colin James in Hinton

The Ship Inn site could look like this if the new proposed project is accepted.

As part of our on-going commitment to provide affordable housing, we are always exploring new sites and developments. We are currently considering the following schemes, but will not begin work until after a period of detailed feasibility studies and consultation.

Ship Inn

The Ship Inn has been closed for a number of years and has suffered from vandalism. We are looking to redevelop the site by creating around 35 new 1 & 2 bedroom apartments.


Other projects include:


Larkrise Housing, Much Birch

We are working with the local community to create a co-housing scheme to provide 10 affordable and 10 market sale properties, as well as playground facilities and improved local parking. A planning application for outline permission has now been submitted. If  you have any questions about this project or would like to register your interest in a property, please contact Avril Shaw: 01981 541089 [email protected] or Kim Read: 01432 383991 [email protected]

Larkrise is a group of local people establishing a co-housing initiative at Tump Lane in partnership with Herefordshire Housing.  Herefordshire Housing Ltd (HHL) is a charitable not-for-profit Registered Provider of affordable housing throughout Herefordshire.


Perrystone Lane, Tupsley

Proposed development of 17 affordable homes, outlined planning consent, compromising of flats, bungalows and houses. We anticipate this scheme to be on site by Spring 2016.

There will be a public consultation on Wednesday 26th August 2015 at Hampton Park United Reform Church,Hampton Dene Rd, Hereford HR1 1UJfrom 3pm – 6pm, to exhibit and discuss our plans. Please come along if you wish.

SAS Veteran Jailed - This is NOT Justice

16 Apr 2016

Posted by Colin James in Open Forum

SAS Emblem.png

SAS Veteran Albert Patterson said he kept the 9mm self-loading pistol, which was taken from an Argentinian officer, to remind him of the 22 friends that died in the conflict.

Judge Christopher Plunkett yesterday said that he had been privileged to see Patterson’s service record but parliamentary legislation left him with little choice but to send the former soldier to prison. Albert Patterson was handed a 15-month prison term for having the 9mm self-loading pistol which he took from an Argentinian officer during the campaign.
“In the wrong hands these weapons could lead to the death of police officers or cause all sorts of mayhem,” Judge Plunkett told Hereford Crown Court.
“It is this risk that parliament is concerned about.”
Patterson had previously admitted possessing a 9mm self-loading pistol, five rounds of expanding ammunition, 177 rounds of 9mm ammunition, four Enfield pistols and a gas self-loading rifle component part.
Stephen Davies, prosecuting, said that Patterson now lived in Thailand when not working overseas and – following a divorce from his wife – his brother went around to his former home to collect his items.
However, his former wife became suspicious of what his brother was up to after items of jewellery had previously gone missing.
She contacted police and they carried out a full search, finding the illegal weapons.
Please sign The Sun's Petition for his immediate release.
