On April 15th last year there was this accident on the Asda (A465) junction Belmont Road Hereford in which a cattle trailer carrying sheep overturned, killing all 20 sheep onboard.
I took this photograph this morning and as you can see, we are 9 months on and NOTHING appears to have been done with regard to replacing the broken lights?? How long does it take to put things back as they were?

Here we have yet another attempt to destroy part of John Venn's legacy - this time the Masonic Housing Trust are applying to demolish No's 5 and 7 Kyrle Street and erect 9 residential apartments with associated car parking, cycles and refuse stores. The scale of the Model Garden street will be destroyed. The Masonic Hall is next door.

So to use the f word or even the c word to Edgar Street in front of children, women or any other person who has a modicum of decency is okay by him. No I'm taking the moral high ground and can/do swear on occasions.
Every youth football club and schools have a strict zero tolerance on abuse and have and will continue to challenge behaviour to ensure correct standards are set for our young people.
Players at all levels are given yellow cards or sent off for swearing, people are arrested for using foul language in the street, parents chastise their children and customers are banned from pubs for acting in a similar manner.
So perhaps Mr Kinnersley should actually reflect on what he has been quoted of saying and realise the damage this can cause for the reputation of the club as a supposed community asset for all to enjoy.

The speech was strong on detail, very optimistically aspirational, open and friendly, extremely pragmatic and in very clear terms she outlined the folly in Brussels attempting to punish us and subsequently destroying themselves.
Happily, in a very honourable British way, she took the time to reach out to the millions of EU migrants resident in our Country who, through no fault of their own are now caught up and snared in this political event and I hope her words of comfort to them, very unlike those from Brussels, bring them some confidence that they will not have to leave Britain.
We are to leave the single market, we will no longer have to tolerate the folly of The Free Movement Of People, we will regain control of our borders, our Country will no longer be tied and bound to the judiciary of European Law, our Country will be back in our hands, the funding to the EU will cease, we can trade with the outside world and it looks very much like we will leave the Customs Union that's so damaging to economic growth right across the Continent.
The tide has certainly shifted in our favour. The Euro currency continues to destroy the Southern Medditeranean nations, Italy is on the brink, Greece destroyed, owned and run by Germany, many citizens across the Geographic EU area are beginning to reject the ideology of Federal Europe, Jean Claude Juncker and his deciples are falling apart, TTIP is gone and ain't coming back, and finally, if that ain't sweet enough for me, the President Elect Trump has made it perfectly clear he despises the EU and Britain will be at the front of the queue in any future trade deal. Indeed, like the USA, so many nations, sympathetic to our position have stepped forward and assured Britain that they will trade with us which has certainly helped us and strengthened the negotiating position of Britain.
The only unknown in this political equation is whether or not the EU will still be standing by the time Britain has negotiated it's exit from the madness of a Union which has become the greatest man made mistake since Hitler decided that the German people required more living space.

Leave out the extortion that is CP+ car park- nothing to do with NHS - even staff have to pay!!
I can't share too much information myself due to confidentiality reasons; but from the inside the situation is far worse than "you" see.
Please do watch 'Hospital' on bbc2 for a insight into real life- not drama like holby or casualty.

Our Mayor Jim Kenyon and Cllr's Laura Hall and Kath Hey and the rest of the team have travelled to Poland this week representing Hereford wit the view to to exploring the possibly of twinning Jaworzno in Poland with Hereford.

3 benches are now in Hereford to honour the local men who fought in the Falklands War. 18 members of the SAS and one member of the Royal Signals died in a Sea King helicopter on May 19th in 1982. The mayor of Hereford, Jimmy Kenyon, came up with the idea of the benches which are in St Martin's Church's remembrance garden, St Peter's Square and at the city's army base at Credenhill

They are saying over on Facebook that The Matabeau Hereford has today shut up shop. Speculation is that they have gone bankrupt. This I find incredibly sad it was the one cafe that I would have a cup of coffee in(they served coffee in a cup and saucer!) and their food was always pretty good. Great shame.
The Chadds staff used to congregate there in the morning prior to going to work - sad old times

Would anybody know who maintains the equipment there. I ask, because I took my daughter there last weekend and the little trampoline had gone and had been replaced by Tarmac! There were also some loose wire strands poking out from one of the climbing frames and nettles around one of the slides. Many thanks in advance.

The Old House Hereford is having a refurbishment.
The beautiful 400-year-old Old House in Hereford will be undergoing a short period of refurbishment in 2017. It will temporarily close from 31 January before re-opening on 1 April as the Black and White House museum.
Councillor David Harlow, Cabinet member for economy and corporate services, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for both the Old House and the county’s tourism economy.“Herefordshire Council wants the county to remain a great place to visit. The refurbished Black and White House museum will continue to be an exciting attraction for the local population and will entice even more visitors to Herefordshire.”

A piece of fabric described as the Holy Grail of fashion history will become one of the star attractions at Hampton Court Palace after it was identified as the only surviving piece of clothing worn by Elizabeth I.
Why do companies like Griffiths get things so wrong?
Widemarsh Street is one way again today with some new signage..But its still not right
They seem to have got the message that it would be a good idea to have the road open up to the roadworks so
they have had a sign made stating Widemarsh Street closed after Wicks which is brilliant but its 30ft down from signs
saying ahead closed diversion.
All it needed was a sign saying Access only road closed after Wicks.
