    Hereford Tip - I am surprised that there is not more fly tipping!

    Colin James
    By Colin James,

    My son recently moved out and I decided to redecorate his old room. I will purchase a double bed and keep it as a guest room. I removed his old tiny 2.6 small single divan and thought I would take it to the tip yesterday (Sunday 27th January). If only I know what a palaver I was in for I would not have bothered! 

    I drive a people carrier (Mercedes Vito), like the one below complete with rear seat and glass rear doors as per the photograph. We arrived at the tip at Rotherwas and I was asked by a chap who's name was Tim, what I had to tip, I replied just my sons single bed, he told me it would need to go into land fill and showed me where to park. As I parked up he then seamed to change his mind and asked me if I had a permit? A permit? I have not been to the tip in years so I was not sure what permit he was referring too, I explained that I was driving a people carrier and I was tipping just a bed, he then went to his little office and came out with a lithograph and pointed to a commercial van, I again explained that I have glass panels and seats in the back, he said you cannot tip here without a permit, I asked where do obtain a permit? Because I had the bed loaded already. He explained that it takes a few weeks and that I need to apply online but basically I could not tip this bed, I was frustrated and told him I would dump it on the side of the road (clearly I was not going to do that but I was angry).

    mwRXoFu.thumb.jpg.1e136727ff9e177130b714cc829897e0.jpg

    I telephoned a friend and he told me to take it to Ross on Wye, yes Ross on Wye! So I drove to Ross and I was told I could park outside and carry the bed onto the site, which is exactly what I did, how pathetic is this?? 

    It is no wonder we so much fly tipping when they make it so difficult to take our old items. 

    I am also confused as to how they expect anyone to drop off a bed in the absence of a larger vehicle of a van, you could not get it into a average car anyway, so had I not have the vehicle I would of borrowed my mates van anyway...

    It is fairly public now Jon Johnson for Wormside is not standing again.

    Hereford's H. Samuel store to close

    Hereford's H. Samuel store to close

    By Charlotte Moreau, Ledbury Reporter

    The jewellery retailer is set to close this summer.

    THE number of empty units in High Town is set to increase with the loss of another big name shop.

    Jewellery chain H. Samuel have today confirmed that the company will not be renewing the lease on their long-established Hereford store.

    A familiar feature in Hereford's High Town, the store will permanently close its doors when its lease comes to an end this summer.

    An H. Samuel spokesperson said: "The H. Samuel store at 22 and 23 High Town, Hereford will close on June 22.

    "We continually re-assess our portfolio of stores on a store by store basis, particularly when individual store leases come up for renewal.

    "We are sorry to be leaving Hereford, however we do have a wide online offering."

    The company was keen to assure shoppers that the Hereford closure is an isolated one which bears no reflection on the future plans of parent company Signet's business estate overall within the UK but declined to comment further.

    The company, which was established in Liverpool in 1862, was acquired by the Signet Group, which also owns the Ernest Jones and Leslie Davis jewellery chains.

    H. Samuel currently has around 300 stores across the country and employs around 17,000 staff.

    Armed police are at the scene and this has been an ongoing situation since about 3am.

    There is also now a fire appliance and crew on site.

    Police and Balfour Beatty have cordoned off Belmont Road (A465) between Walnut Tree Avenue and Asda and motorists are being diverted to the Ross Road (A49)

    There is no risk to the wider public. Police have advised the public to avoid the area.

    By Hereford Voice,

    The prefabricated bungalows in Beattie Avenue Hereford will soon just become a pile of rubble once the demolition work begins.

    Boycotting EU elections

    Cambo
    By Cambo,

    If the PM IS GRANTED A EXTENSION to leaving the EU then the UK will more than likely have to take part in EU elections...but I would urge folks in the UK not to take part in but rather boycotting with the setting up of picket lines to peaceful encourage people not to take part in them so as not to give them legitimacy so as to send a clear message to our corrupt politicians & the EU itself that we have had enough of there shenanigans in trying to keep us in the unholy union which is contrary to the referendum vote in 2016

    But the big question is would people actually take part or just act like sheep in excepting their fate?


    Take A Stand Against Telephone Scams!

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    By reporting a scam, you may prevent others from being scammed 

    Newsroom_banner_Copy__1_.thumb.jpg.de002d265b2f07d89dd2a5563c6b2a98.jpg

    Scammers are targeting Herefordshire households by telephone, pretending that residents are due a refund on their Council Tax and asking for bank and card details.

    Herefordshire Council will always write to customers to advise them of any refund and would never ask for bank or card details over the phone.

    Fraudsters often use the phone to cold call their way into your home. They trick you by pretending to be from a trusted source, such as the council, your bank, the police, a utility provider or a computer company. Their aim is to get hold of your personal or financial information like bank details and passwords. Scammers can be very persuasive and relentless - if they can get access to your bank cards, or persuade you to transfer money into bank accounts they control, then most of their work is done.

    The good news is that it’s easy to protect yourself:

    If you receive an unsolicited call from a company you don’t recognise, hang up

    Never give out personal or bank details over the telephone

    Don’t feel pressured to make a decision over the telephone

    Consider a call blocking device to filter out unwanted calls

    If you think you have been targeted by a scammer, call Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06.

    Citizens Advice will give you advice on what to do next, and report the scam to Herefordshire Council’s Trading Standards team for investigation.

    Theft of plants from garden

    Ubique
    By Ubique,

    For info if you live in a rural area of the County.............

    I fully accept that a person is innocent until proved guilty in a Court of Law ..............

    At about 10.30am today Sunday 14th April 2019 the occupiers of Blossom View, Crowmoor Lane Tillington HR4 8LD ( that's the old Coop farm office opposite the Fruit Farm ) heard a vehicle stop on the road outside their bungalow, looked out of the window and saw a male , 35yrs, medium to stocky build ,with sandy short hair with one of the occupiers plants in his hand , the plant had been planted in their garden which fronts the road . The occupier shouted to the male who dropped the plant in the road and jumped into his vehicle , he was the only occupant . He drove away in a Silver Nissan pickup RegNo.BL03OLJ . 
    Police have been advised , bit  disheartening , it appears that the Call Taker told the Complainant that as the Offender didn't take the plant not a lot the police could do ( What about Attempt Theft for starters ) The plant cost the Complainant £50 . It's not the first time that pants gave been stolen from gardens in the village , recently a householder had 25 laylandi trees stolen .
    If you see this vehicle it or know where it's parked please phone 101 and advise the Call Taker using the West  Mercia Police Ref No 239/N/14.04.19 
    Thank you .


    Hereford restaurants that serve Halal

    Paul Jones
    By Paul Jones,

    I enjoy good food but I refuse to eat in restaurants where I am aware that they serve Halal meat.

    Quote

    Halal is an Arabic word that means “permissible.” In terms of food, it means food that is permissible according to Islamic law. For a meat to be certified “halal,” it cannot be a forbidden cut (such as meat from hindquarters) or animal (such as pork.)

    The slaughter of a halal animal is called “zabihah” and there are certain guidelines to follow:

    Allah’s (God’s) name must be pronounced during slaughter.
    The instrument must be very sharp to ensure humane slaughter. The animal must be slit at the throat.
    The animal must not be unconscious
    The animal must be hung upside down and allowed to bleed dry. Eating blood is not halal.
    These steps must be accomplished by a Muslim or the People of the Book (Christian or Jew.) Many observant Muslims find kosher meat acceptable.
    The animal must have been fed a natural diet that did not contain animal by-products

    I am aware that both the Mary Gold and Mowchak restaurants serve Halal meat, which other restaurants in Hereford serve Halal? 

     

     


    Jacobs Court Scaffolding

    Alastair
    By Alastair,

    Does anyone know the history behind why there is scaffolding around the stair and lift tower behind Jacobs Court on Commercial Street?

    Research shows that planning permission for this tower was granted in 2005 but was found to be in contravention of building regulations sometime after that. The scaffolding has been in place for many years now which is a shame as the main building is quite beautiful both inside and out.

    Is there a plan to have the work completed or will it stay like this forever?

      Having problems pasting on HV. Have contacted Colin several times, understand he is not well. Can you read this and paste it in the topic WMP and Warwickshire Police Alliance.
      Reminder of why they amalgamated:
      20th June 2012 - Hereford Times
      1,000 jobs set to go in £30m police cuts
      PLANS to shed £30 million from policing costs across the region under a “strategic alliance” between forces in West Mercia and Warwickshire are about to be finalised.
      West Mercia Police agreed to enter into a formal partnership yesterday, a move which is expected to lead to up to 1,000 job cuts in total.
      About £22.8 million of the savings will come from losing workers, with the cull set to take place between now and 2015/16.
      And £4 million is due to be saved from sharing IT, reviewing building costs and vehicles.
      West Mercia Police will take the brunt of the cuts, with the force aiming to save £20 million of the total figure.
      Warwickshire’s police authority is meeting today to finalise their side of the alliance, and will be responsible for the remaining £10 million.
      The exact number of the job losses have yet to be confirmed, but HM Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) revealed last year more than 1,000 posts were likely to go.
      Simon Payne, of the Police Federation, has hit out at the move, saying: “The key thing for our members is, are we being treated fairly? I think not.
      “The public will rightly be asking who is to blame for this.”
      Councillor Mary Drinkwater, who sits on the police authority, which approved it, said: “I think people want to see police kept on the streets and communities protected. Hopefully, it will work. Over last year police and officers have worked incredibly hard to put this together, it’s been a lot of effort.”
      The majority of the job losses will affect staff in “management and leadership” roles, rather than frontline police officers.
      Both forces will keep their chief constables and deputies, but expect to lose a significant number of other senior positions.
      All police stations have been placed under review, any new vehicles being bought will be funded jointly, and a single firearms unit will be created.
      Both police authorities will be defunct by November, when a new police and crime commissioner will be elected.
      Robin Walker, Worcester’s MP, said: “These are tough economic times and when there is not as much money to go round, prioritising spending on police officers while sharing assets and making back office savings is a better approach.”
      Looks like we drew the short straw paying for this and still expected to pay again for the "divorce". Marvellous savings for the ratepayers!
