    It never rains, but it pours at Plough Lane office

    Why does the council put it will be done within a budget of £400k?…surly it would be wise to get the quotes in first before letting potential bidders know what the budget is beforehand? im guessing these roofs are covered with roof metal sheeting? Which are not that difficult to take off & replace so again this money to do the works seem like it will be a very lucrative contract for whoever gets it?

    I'm fairly certain that there was some working done on the roof of the plough lane offices?…exactly what work was carried out up on there I'm not sure of?…maybe Megilleland can dig out this information?

    Freedom Church Back In The News.

    Not had a chance to review this properly yet but I'd thought I'd post it anyway freedom churches annual returns for last financial year 2016/2017 http://beta.charitycommission.gov.uk/charity-details?regid=1161926&subid=0 http://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Accounts/Ends26/0001161926_AC_20170331_E_C.PDF
  5. In 2020 central government are stopping funding to local authorities…so how are this LA's going to fund service? Where will the money come from? How many of them will go bang? & if that happens what then?…after Theresa May's pathetic attempt at Brexit?…you have to wonder at the governments thinking,behind cutting the local LA's funding too?!…will this be the straw that breaks the camels back?

    First University academic building plans

    It beggars belief how much they are spending on doing this building up!…are the rooms to be gold plated? I guess when it's not your money who cares about the cost…yet again taxpayers being ripped off as for the design of the front of the building they might as well not both…its hideous & it would knock a million & a half off the cost?!

    Lost Opportunity

    Indeed it is a lost opportunity you'd of thought that after all that money spent on minimal roof repairs that at least SC Joseph's out the kindness of their hearts & as a civic gesture would of cleaned them up a bit for the city?!

    Change at the Council

    Are you able to elaborate on this news for us a bit more please AV?…as I thought this would be headline news over on HT but there is nothing running on their site about this?…admittedly HT are not the quickest but now you've let the cat out of the back I'm intrigued to learn a little more…that is if you know why he's resigned?

    80 New Homes for Clehonger

    Yes Harry Bramer he is a card isn't he…I saw him this morning sat outside a well known cafe in St. Peter's square enjoying his breakfast along with another councilor Paul Rone…not sure where he's living nowadays?…as he gives his address,as the shire hall St Peters's square!

    80 New Homes for Clehonger

    No disrespect to Clehonger (I grew up there)but you would think that properties in Hay-on-Wye would be more desirable? But obviously not…Clehonger's is obviously on the up!

    Herefordshire Council Contracts

    Yes well they seem to be very snugg & cozy in bed together don't they?! my understanding is if HC need construction work doing & it's below £200k then it's the service provider integral who the tendering process goes through…which makes it ripe for abuse in my opinion. I'm also hearing that integral are to be replace as the council service provider in August but who is replacing them I do not know?! So today I've been chasing up integral to get some answers to my FOI…I can tell you they are a slippery bunch of eels giving me the run around eventually got through to their national accounts manager a man call John Eastley who thinks because there a private company he doesn't have to answer my FOI as being a private company it excludes them from the FOI process so then told me he wasn't going to continue the conversation that I should contact their HR department then abruptly hung up…(I think he was a little bit rattled that I should be asking such things). however I have his email address so he won't be getting off that easily…his behavior also leads me to suspect that he has got something to hide?
