    County Councillors Urge Council Leaders to Ditch Western Bypass in Favour of Eastern River Crossing

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    County councillors on the scrutiny committee have urged leaders to ditch plans for a bypass west of Hereford in favour of a preferred an eastern river crossing option.

    If cabinet agree with this option this could see the construction of an additional river crossing creating an eastern link road connecting Rotherwas with Ledbury Road or Hampton Park Road.


    Other options included the idea of a water bus but there was more focus on improving walking and cycling networks, buses and possible 'part-time traffic light system' an idea initiated many years ago and heavily campaigned for by Hereford Voice however, it was clear from the meeting that more consideration should be given to making more use of the river which flows through the heart of Hereford.

    Cabinet is expected to debate these options at a meeting scheduled for December.

    The Beefy Boys extending their restaurant into the former Frankie & Bennies next door!

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    A message on their Facebook page reads as follows: 👇



    "We are pleased to announce that we will be knocking a hole in our wall and temporarily taking over the former Frankie and Bennies unit next door to The Beefy Boys.
    From the start of this pandemic our landlords have gone above and beyond to help us continue trading through what has been an extremely turbulent time for the hospitality industry and especially for a small local independent like us.
    Due to social distancing measures on our tables and increasing the size of our kitchen to allow our staff to work 2 meters apart we have seen the indoor capacity of our restaurant reduced from 80 covers to 20.
    We were lucky enough to be granted an extended outdoor seating area to help us through this difficult time. which has been great, but with the weather getting colder and the evenings drawing in we knew it would only be a viable alternative for a short period of time.
    We approached our landlord with the idea for us to temporarily take over the empty Frankie and Bennies unit next door for the next 12 months, allowing us to safely sit our customers indoors and hopefully giving us the space we need to still trade at our usual level, until (hopefully) the world returns to some form of normalcy next year.
    We will be doing a small amount of renovation work on the building and taking the opportunity to relaunch our menu with lots of exciting options on there that we can’t wait for people to try.
    Our new space will be open from Thursday the 3rd of December if you would like to book a table for the run up to Christmas follow this link here to our open table https://thebeefyboys.com/contact#bookatable 
    We would like to thank all of our customers for the huge amount of support they have shown us since everyone's world was turned upside down back in March. We would not be here today if it wasn’t for your constant support
    Here's to the next twelve months and let's hope we can all move on to bigger and better things
    Much love
    The Beefy Boys"

    Good luck guys with the new extension! 👍🤞

    Good morning Herefordshire we're now in Lockdown 2

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,


    National restrictions from 5 November

    Applies to: England (see guidance for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland)

    COVID-19 case numbers are rising rapidly across the whole of the UK and in other countries. We must act now to control the spread of the virus. The single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus is to stay at home, to protect the NHS and save lives.

    When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, you must:

    Stay at home, except for specific purposes.

    Avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.

    Close certain businesses and venues.

    These new measures will reduce the growth rate of the virus, which will:

    prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed

    ensure schools, colleges and universities can stay open

    ensure that as many people as possible can continue to work

    Until 00.01am on Thursday 5 November, the relevant Local Covid Alert Levelmeasures will continue to apply in the area where you live. From 00.01 on Thursday 5 November these national restrictions replace the local restrictions in your area.

    The new measures will apply nationally for four weeks up to Wednesday 2 December. At the end of the period, we will return to a regional approach, based on the latest data.

    These measures will be underpinned by law. Police and other authorities will have powers to give fines and break up gatherings.

    You can help to protect your friends and family by downloading the NHS COVID-19 App to keep updated on the latest guidance from Thursday 5 November

    There is separate guidance for households with a possible or confirmed coronavirus infection.

    Cannabis grow dismantled in Newent

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    Police discovered around 160 cannabis plants with a street value of more than £130,000 at a property in Newent yesterday.


    A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of producing a controlled drug and cultivating cannabis.

    The find was dismantled after it was made safe by electricians.

    Inspector Nick Cook said: “Drugs can have a devastating impact on people’s lives and often go hand in hand with other types of criminality.

    “We will continue to proactively target these operations and welcome any information you have about this kind of activity in the community. People coming and going at all times and properties with blacked out windows are just a couple of things to look out for.

    “If you believe drug activity is taking place you can report this to us on our website or through Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.”

    A man has been charged and is due to appear in court later this month.

    Anyone with additional information about this latest drugs incident can contact police through this website, quoting incident 346 of 9 November: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/contact/af/contact-us/us/a-crime-that-has-already-been-reported/. Alternatively, you can also call police on 101.
