    Cyclists on Footpaths!

    Stretches of the pavement in Whitecross Road are shared cycle & footpaths, Ubique. Which bits are you on about?

    Fixed Penalty Notices are disposals for criminal offences. The Road Traffic Acts and other delegated legislative measures are not civil law but create criminal offences.

    It is a criminal offence, albeit not a very serious one. End of.

    Colin, The guy at the Asda Roundabout sitting on his bike at the Crossing... that's a Pedestrian & Cycle Crossing, and he's doing nothing wrong.

    Hereford Duck Pond Clean Up

    I think what AV is saying is that, as we do not own the Castle Pool, we need to ensure that we get the necessary permissions before we clean it up. That's my guess at what the cryptic message meant, anyway. Any advances?

    Hereford Medieval City Walls Left To Ruin

    Yep - I've groped my way back along there on more than one occasion following a night out in the Barrels. That Butty Bach creeps up on you, doesn't it?

    Hereford Medieval City Walls Left To Ruin

    Ah - Gaol Street - Hereford's one time red light district that used to rejoice in its original name of Grope Lane. The highminded Victorians renamed most of the UK's Grope Lanes, and now only Shrewsbury retains their's.

    Cyclists on Footpaths!

    Yes, Ken, but if a traffic order designates a pavement to be dual use, then it's not solely a footpath anymore. Personally I like the Whitecross Rd shared pavements, and find them clearly marked and easy to use. They work well around Saxon Gate & Holme Lacy Rd too.

    Car crime in Herefordshire

    Works ok for me, Colin. And car crime is low too.

    Tents on Edgar Street roundabout

    Went around the roundabout this evening - boy, was Ms LAMPUTT struggling. The rain was coming down, the wind getting up and the tent misbehaving as she was trying to tether it down. Bit like a typical camping holiday in the U.K. The camping/protest thing I can just about live with, but why does she need to build such outlandish artistic structures? It's like the kids would make in Mad Max's 'Beyond Thunderdome'. And where do all her handcarts and trolleys come from. Surely someone has missed them by now?!?

    Cannot Purchase Hot Food In Hereford City After 1.30am

    According to Twitter, the intended new Hereford Fish & Chips Shop alongside the Golden Galleon has just been granted opening hours up until 4am, despite Council objections. Looks like the former Inspector Semper has come back as a 'Licensing Consultant' and now represents businesses around the city. So it looks like the ban on late night takeaways may be a thing of the past.

    Thorntons Hereford Closing

    Well, that would rather suggest that Thortons have made a strategic decision to access a much bigger clientele by supplying major chain grocers and at the same time save on their wages and overheads costs by ditching their high street shops. Ferrero International SA, based in Luxembourg, own them so I can't imagine the share price has been rocked by the Hereford closure. I'm more saddened by the loss of independent local stores myself.

    The Grapes Tavern

    Not website - I meant to say Facebook page...

    The Grapes Tavern

    They were published on the Council website in advance of the hearing. Too lengthy to reproduce here. However they were abandoned once the full circumstances were aired - hence the hearing cancelled. According to their website, The Grapes are putting on a big programme of live music events as well. Consequently I think this place is going to be a great addition to the Hereford scene, and deserve our full support.
