    Friendly and Welcoming

    I certainly agree that Medical building should be attractive and welcoming , my concern is that is there an increased financial cost involved ? Whilst , I accept that it would be very hard to compare costing of the design of the proposed building and the one that GK has posted can anybody give a ball park figure of , I presume the apparent increase in £ of GK suggestion ?

    Plans for new GP super surgery to go on display

    Gridknocker , when I read the No objections comments I came to the same conclusion as you BUT your written thoughts are bang on . Thought that Mr MILLN ( think that's his name ) Objections were again very well thought out and should give the Decisions makers something to consider ( no I'm not joking ) .

    Church bells

    Last Saturday it was the Cathedral bells ringing .
  5. Will be interesting to know why it's been " abandoned " plus the financial cost to arrive at this position .

    So What Did You Think Of The Royal Wedding?

    You summed it up about right Gridkocker , thought the the fire and brimstone " Sermon " was quite brillent , he didn't appear to have anything written down but I guess he got the. " message " through . The Church person sitting next to him appeared quite bored .

    Man shot with BB gun during robbery

    Bit suspicious about this incident , 20 yr old V a 12 yr old , BB gun fired many times at the 20 yr old . No apparent injuries. If the 12 yr old had done that to me he would receive a painful kick so the Police would be looking for a 12 yr old with a high squeaky voice and a funny gait .

    Why can't we have a Parador?

    What a very good article , well researched and written by Nick Jones . The idea of turning older building into hotels appears to work very well in Spain , as I see it , the biggest obstacle to saving old buildings is Herefodshire Council , as Gridknocker pointed out the burnt out premises covered in scaffolding in a prime position with the Old House nearby must make visitors to the City believe that the Council just ain't bothered ,especially when it's pointed out that the building fire was 9 years ago . Going on from that the Council wanted to knock down the Old Boys Home for a new Fire Stn . High profile protests made them think again.
  11. Ragwert ?...I believe but will stand corrected that you are allowed to enter the box junction if you wish to turn right and your path is blocked by oncoming traffic. It is OK for you to wait on the yellow criss-cross . . The apparent problem is the yellow box junction markings extending into the right turn lane plus of course the drivers of vehicles wishing to turn right are not aware of the law or hesitant because of a doubt in their mind as to wether they can enter the box junction to turn right ........a the answer is to my old mind is yes you can !

    Weeping Window , Hereford Cathedral 2018

    Well done to all the team that worked from late 2017 to ensure that the Poppies Weeping Window was a great success . The Team including the volunteers that stood out in the cold , rain , snow to ensure that the visitors left with a very good feeling of the Poppies , the City plus of course the Cathedral should be so proud of themselves .Super result well done . Over 196,000 people visited Poppies: Weeping Window, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, when it was displayed at Hereford Cathedral between 14 March and 29 April. The sculpture came to Hereford Cathedral as part of 14-18 NOW’s UK-wide tour of the iconic poppy sculptures Wave and Weeping Window, which have been seen by over 3.75 million people to date. The artwork is carefully being removed from the cathedral and will shortly be presented at Carlisle Castle from 23 May to 8 July. Councillor David Harlow, Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet member for Economy and Communications, said: “It’s sad to see Weeping Window leave, as it’s been a wonderful addition to the county, but we’re delighted that nearly 200,000 people have visited the city and experienced the artwork. It was a pleasure to work in partnership with Hereford Cathedral to bring such an iconic and unique sculpture to Herefordshire. “It’s difficult to assess the exact impact Weeping Window has had on our economy, but we know a number of local businesses have reported a significant increase in trade, some as much as 25%. I believe our local economy will continue to thrive, as more people visit and move to the county to enjoy our beautiful city, market towns and countryside; Herefordshire really does have so much to offer.” The Very Reverend Michael Tavinor, Dean of Hereford, said: “The presence of Poppies: Weeping Window was an event of great significance to the cathedral and we were privileged to host it. Many thousands came to visit, young and old, from all over the country. Their reactions were as varied as the locations they travelled from, but a common experience seems to be one of remembrance, thanksgiving, regret and beauty and our wonderful volunteers (who were present in all weathers) engaged in many deep and profound conversations with our visitors. “For us at the cathedral, the artwork appeared as an ‘extension’ of the building itself. It helped to bring so many elements of the Christian faith we experience inside the cathedral, those of love, faithfulness, peace, justice and hospitality, outside into Cathedral Close. It was a wonderful partnership between cathedral, council, 14-18 NOW and our generous supporters and volunteers. I believe what we have experienced as a community in the last six weeks’, will live on in the lives of all who were part of this great and moving event. I’d like to express my warmest thanks to all.” Jenny Waldman, Director of 14-18 NOW, said: “We are delighted that over 195,000 people experienced artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper’s powerful artwork at Hereford Cathedral. Wave and Weeping Window continue to inspire all who see them and give visitors the chance to reflect on the impact of the First World War.” Weeping Window is from the installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ – poppies and original concept by artist Paul Cummins and installation designed by Tom Piper – by Paul Cummins Ceramics Limited in conjunction with Historic Royal Palaces. The installation was originally at HM Tower of London from August to November 2014, where 888,246 poppies were displayed, one for every British or Colonial life lost at the Front during the First World War. Together, the sculptures Wave and Weeping Window are made of over 11,000 poppies.
