    Merry Christmas

  3. Does anyone know where this will be situated? I've heard conflicting things. One friend has said it's going in the former Lakeland shop on commercial street and another has said it's going in the former poundworld shop at the Brooks retail park. More entry level employment opportunities can only be good for Hereford Jobs advertised here

    Graffiti

    We have noticed all this new graffiti locally, some will claim it is street art but the bottom line here is that this is plain criminal damage to someones property and this criminal damage costing the taxpayer thousands of pounds for the local council to clean it up. This has popped up at the Oval and along the Belmont Road over the past week.
  5. Herefordshire Council’s ongoing refurbishment of Commercial Street has been paused for the festive season. The council and our partners, Balfour Beatty Living Places, have been working to improve Commercial Street over the last six months, and the project is on track to be completed in spring 2019. The works will be put on hold over December to ensure there is no disruption to seasonal shoppers, and to allow Hereford’s local residents, businesses and visitors to celebrate Christmas. The teams will return in the New Year to complete delivery of a new vibrant shopping area for residents and visitors. Cllr Barry Durkin, cabinet member transport and regulatory services, said:
  6. I walked through Venn Gdns / Park between Canel Rd and Commercial Rd a couple of weeks ago and saw that somebody had set up camp in the corner - quite surprised to see that the camp complete with two occupants is still there .,I fully accept that this is the life some people follow for whatever reason but should they be allowed to remain there ?
  7. This premises is applying for a booze licence ..... Application Hours applied for are 0800 - 2200 7 days a week ..... Address is 22 Eign Gate ....
  8. Herefordshire Council is proposing to invest £1.5m to convert the former Hillside Rehabilitation Unit to nurse residents with dementia. The Redhill centre, which was run by Wye Valley NHS Trust, Hereford Voice reported on it's closure in April after clinical commissioning group representatives said the move would save some £500,000 which would be re-invested in healthcare provision in the community. But now the council, who owns the site, hopes to use it to plug the county’s dire need for nursing facilities for residents with dementia. In a report to this week’s adults and wellbeing scrutiny committee leader Jonathan Lester said: “There is not enough current capacity to meet the high demand for nursing/elderly mental infirm placements. “The risk of not undertaking the redesign of Hillside will exacerbate the current situation by putting a greater strain on the adults budget and will not plan effectively for the expected increase in future demand.”
  9. The plans for a new fire & police station on the Link Road Edgar Street have been scrapped with a new location being found on the former sports field of Painter Bros in Holmer Road. Up until a few weeks ago this site was still for sale with an asking price in excess of £850,000

  11. Here are a few good photographs taken over High Town during the Christmas lights switch on this evening. Thank you to Simon Dimps for sending us these images.
  12. County Councillor for Widemarsh Polly Andrews in her recent new letter has criticised the fantastic work achieved by the City Council in providing a memorial bench sited at the recently restored War Memorial on Widemarsh Common. How anyone in her position can possibly justify complaining about a beautiful bench? Which is a place for contemplation of our lost heroes during the two World Wars. We visited the memorial shortly after Armistice Day to see the recently added names from World War II and took these fabulous photographs in the Autumn sunshine and as you can clearly see there is no litter in site.

    Cyclists on Footpaths!

    Cyclists on Footpaths! Should cyclists be allowed on footpaths? I ask the question because this morning I was walking along Belmont Avenue and a chap on a bike knocked into me from behind and almost knocked me to the floor as he came speeding past me on along the footpath on his bike. He turned around and shouted sorry pal but to be honest it not only startled me but I will probably have a bruise on my arm. I could have easily lost my balance and fallen into the road. I thought riding a bicycle on a footpath was illegal? I appreciate that some people do not like riding on the roads and most of the councils in the country are implementing cycle lanes where they can but if the roads are narrow in the first place it makes it very difficult. I always remeber growing up that the police would tell you to get off your bike and walk on footpaths but that does not appear to happen anymore. I have just seen this article on Sky news

    Hereford Duck Pond Frustrations

    I am very frustrated today, some vile idiot has removed the donated duck feeding advice sign from the wall at the duck pond and thrown it into the pond. I am also quite concerned as there are a several large dead fish both in the water and one on the side near to where the bamboo is located. (not sure what fish these are?) Possibly eaten and killed by Otters The pond is fairly shallow and clear and I spotted a number of big fish swimming around which has confirmed to me there are plenty of fish in the water however, I do have concerns over what has caused these others to die. I still have additional signs at home and it looks like we will have to house tase in a enclosed notice board. I am aware that there are a few scattered about the city no longer being used that we may be able to use going forward. There is also still a lot of discarded rubbish, can and signs still in the water which needs removing, so another clean up will be required once the weather improves, I will advise a mutually agreed date in the coming months. In the meantime have a look at the photographs that I took today.
  15. Special train to honour all of the GWR fallen Intercity Express Train named after Herefordshire-born Lance Corporal Allan Leonard Lewis VC and Flight Sub-Lieutenant Harold Day DSC. Intercity Express Train named after Allan Leonard Lewis VC and Harold Day DSC Great Western Railway (GWR) marked 100 years since the end of the Great War by unveiling a very special train prior to a remembrance service for fallen railway workers at Paddington Station (Friday 9 November). The Intercity Express Train features the names of all 2,545 men who worked for the GWR and died during the war, and was welcomed into London Paddington by relatives of those killed. The train was also named after two of those who died, Flight Sub-Lieutenant Harold Day, DSC, the only railway man to become a flying ace and Herefordshire-born Lance Corporal Allan Leonard Lewis VC, whose name had historically been omitted from the GWR Roll of Honour. Present for the ceremony were relatives of both Harold Day and Allan Leonard Lewis. To recognise all of the lives lost, the full train has been given a distinctive design stretching over both sides of the nine carriages including the driving cabs at either end of the Intercity Express Train. The Roll of Honour features detail of where they worked for the company, their rank, regiment, where they were killed and where they are either remembered or buried. From the 2,545 names, one hundred will also feature in more detail on the train, including pictures and background stories. Great Western Railway Deputy Managing Director Matthew Golton said: Lance Corporal Allan Lewis VC's great niece Dawn Lewis next to the Intercity Express Train named in his honour Allan Leonard Lewis' great niece Dawn Lewis said: Those being remembered worked in all areas of the company; engineers, labourers, solicitors, carriage cleaners and apprentices from across the GWR network. At the time the network stretched from Paddington to Penzance, and as far north as Liverpool, Manchester, Chester, Birmingham and Wolverhampton. Allan in the uniform of the Army Service Corps (c) A L Lewis VC Memorial Fund Lance Corporal Allan Leonard Lewis VC Allan Lewis was born Whitney-on-Wye, Herefordshire, one of nine children. He left school at thirteen to work on the land eventually becoming a gardener at Truscoed House near Llandeilo in West Wales. Lewis always enjoyed working with machines and this led to him becoming an employee of the Great Western Railway. He moved to Neath and after a period as a conductor he drove a GWR bus on the Pontardawe route. Lewis joined the army in Neath in March 1915. On 18 September 1918 at Rossnoy, near Lempire, France, Lance Corporal Lewis was in command of a section on the right of the attacking line held up by intense machine gun fire. He saw that two guns were enfilading the line and crawled forward alone, successfully bombed the guns and by rifle fire made the whole team surrender. On 21 September he rushed his company through the enemy barrage, but was killed while getting his men under cover from heavy machine-gun fire. Lance Corporal Lewis VC - Herefordshire’s only county-born World War 1 Victoria Cross recipient - was commemorated with a stone plaque dedication at Hereford Cathedral and bronze statue at Hereford Old Market on 21 September 2018, 100 years to the day of his passing.

    Three Elms Rd and Welsh Water

    From HCC today. Update from @HfdsStreets Welsh Water works on Three Elms Road, Hereford| Welsh Water has informed Herefordshire Council that there is a water leak on their newly installed mains pipe situated under Three Elms Road in Hereford. The company is writing to local residents and businesses to inform them of the leak and planned work to repair it. This work will commence on Saturday November 24 and be complete by Friday November 30 at the latest. Temporary two-way traffic lights will be in operation between 8am and 4pm each day. Clive Hall, Acting Assistant Director for Highways and Transport at Herefordshire Council said: “Local residents and businesses were delighted when Welsh Water works on Three Elms Road were completed and we had delivered a new road surface. We are extremely disappointed to learn of Welsh Water’s need to return to the site. If Herefordshire Council had known that work had not been completed to the required standard when Welsh Water withdrew from the site we would have delayed resurfacing work. “We are insisting that work is completed by Friday November 30 at the latest. Further, Welsh Water will have to completely resurface the entire width of road where new work takes place and for some distance either side, not just patch where they dig. We will inspect the resurfacing after they are done to ensure that the quality of the road is of the same high standard recently delivered by Balfour Beatty Living Places. “It is hugely regrettable that local businesses and residents are going to be disrupted again so soon.” Welsh Water are informing residents that the leak is situated near the junction of Bakers Lane and Three Elms Road, by The Range store.

    River Wye is High in Hereford

    The river Wye in Hereford is very high and fast flowing this morning. If this rainfall continues for a few more days we may see the river burst its banks. I spoke with my daughter this morning and she tells me the both river bridges in Brecon are closed.
  20. A fantastic photograph of the Left Bank and De Koffie Pot taken at 0130 hrs this morning. All of the lights were left on at the Left Bank in order that this photograph could be taken showing a superb glimmer and reflection across the very high river Wye. Thank you to our friend David Barrett for this wonderful shot.
  21. Union Passage & St Peters Square Improvements Work has been taking place over the past week by Hereford Business Improvement District to make Union Passage (The gateway to Union Street) much more attractive to shoppers. Walls have been repainted to help make the passageway appear lighter. Union Street has so many great local businesses including Music Plus, Papaya and The Kup-cake Kitchen. Work has also taken place to paint the railings at the War Memorial in St Peters Square ahead of this year Remembrance Parade.
  22. The traffic lights at the Asda junction are out of order and have been all weekend and guess what? 'The Traffic Just Flows' Yesterday evening, (August bank holiday) we took a video which you can find here, which shows the traffic moving freely, there were no problems at all however, we were asked to film another video on a normal day during the rush hour, well here it is, this was filmed just before 0900 this morning and again you can see that the 'Traffic Just Flows' when these traffic lights are off.
