    A planning application to extend opening hours to 11pm at the vacant unit.

    The company's application said: "The proposed extension of hours will allow the business to open until 11pm serving customers with healthy grilled food, coffees and teas."

    If this planning application is approved, the restaurant will be open from 11am to 11pm seven days a week and will create 8 jobs.

    The consultation period will end on April 4.

    Pepe Piri Piri currently has 88 restaurants nationally with a menu offering Burritos, Wraps, Burgers and the famous Piri Piri Chicken plus many other items.

    Lugg Meadow ground work activity.

    By greenknight,

    Well hello...it's been a while but I'm liking the revamp.

    Been away with work and doing a bit of my own rebuilding and I guess that brings me to the topic in question.

    Does anyone know what's going on in the fields next to the Barrett new development and opposite the road that leads out from the old Herefordshire Nature Trust building ?


    No Cash or Free Speech

    megilleland
    By megilleland,

    With the banks working with the government and mega corporations to abolish cash and use our smart phones for continuing surveillance, is this what will happen after Brexit. This government's proposed white paper on Online Harms centered on Internet Censorship will be the final nail in British democracy for the future. Nice piece concerning Jeremy Hunt in the video which will no doubt raise his popularity in the PM contest.

    Proposed Government white paper on Internet Censorship Policy:
    Online Harms consultation ends midnight tomorrow. Follow the video to grasp the consequences of what the government will allow you to say.


    Yet another knife incident linked to hunderton

    Eymerk Hunt
    By Eymerk Hunt,

    4 of the last high profile incidents (iirc) involving knives in Hereford all have links to Hunderton. 

    Christopher Bagley left a house in Hunderton and was killed, Robert Ecock was from Hunderton (originally), The non local women who went on a speed in hunderton. And now another one where a man ( use that word loosely) stabbed his partner in hunderton. 

    It’s like the estate is trying to revive its past “Shanghai” label. 


    Morrisons Supermarket (Hereford)

    Roger
    By Roger,

    Morrisons posted a profit warning recently ... 

     

    Robert Peston (BBC) on the subject

     

    So why are they trying to aggravate customers by having a TalkTalk hit squad hovering as you leave? I let it go last night as these salesmen have to earn a living somewhere ... but I got grabbed again tonight by the same guys who had forgotten we had a conversation last night which had ended with me saying I was not remotely interested in their product. 

     

    I was also in a bad mood as the offer product I went in for was bare on the shelf.

     

    Also the car park now has so many rules that it puts you off going there. Machines that need you to type in your car registration number for instance. That loses my interest straight away! Plus ANPR cameras.

     

    And I've not even started on the till situation! 


    Volvo Crashed Into St Nicholas Church Wall

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    A Volvo car has crashed into the wall at St Nicholas Church in Barton Road this afternoon. We are not sure how the vehicle managed to crash into the wall with the car facing in the wrong direction...We understand that an elderly couple were in the car.IMG_3910.thumb.jpeg.3ff8e2c79c88c82120b735921260e5fb.jpeg

    There is a recovery truck on site and we do not believe anyone was seriously injured.

    So our question now is should people have a mandatory re-test every two or three years once they reach the age of 70-75?

    £10,000 Reward To Find Christian's Killer

    Colin James
    By Colin James,

    BBC Crimewatch tonight at 9pm.

    The senior investigating officer (SIO) of the investigation, DCI Leighton Harding, said:

    We are offering this reward to encourage people to come forward with information to help us identify those responsible for Christians death.
    We firmly believe that someone has information which could lead us to those responsible for Christian's death but has not yet come forward. My appeal to them is to think about the impact Christians murder has had on his family, in particular his young daughter who faces a life without her father, and to do the right thing by contacting us.
    If you have any information it is imperative you come forward to police and allow Christians family the justice they deserve.

    DVLA

    DILLIGAF
    By DILLIGAF,

    Yesterday on my travels I noticed not one not two but three vehicles clamped and stamped by the DVLA for tax evasion - this was South Side only. One chappy looked rather miffed that his 16 plate was clamped right outside the school. Well done DVLA. This should become a weekly occurrence.

    I'd be more p******ed at the sticker they slap on the windscreen - damn it makes a mess!!! :Cool_32:

     I notice that the Hereford Times website if offline yet again, it has been down for several hours. It was offline a few weeks ago too, very odd, you would think a website like that would be more rigid and reliable


    Enterprise jobs fail to materialize

    megilleland
    By megilleland,

    A multi-million-pound government policy to boost job creation has failed to deliver, research has revealed.

    In 2011, the government announced "enterprise zones" in England to try to improve economic growth, forecasting 54,000 new jobs between 2012 and 2015.

    But BBC-commissioned research found by 2017 only 17,307 jobs had been created in 24 zones around England - and in two areas the number of jobs had fallen.

    The government said it had created 38,000 jobs since 2012.

    Enterprise zones offered cheaper business rates, super-fast broadband and lower levels of planning control.

    The research, which was conducted by think tank charity Centre for Cities using data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), showed the number of jobs created fell short by nearly three-quarters of the amount predicted in the government's initial announcement in 2011.

    The figure for Hereford was only 146 jobs. It's created more jobs for those involved in planning, building and promoting the site than actually working there.


    Hereford Town Hall Work Complete

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    The scaffolding erected at the Town Hall in Hereford in December 2015 was finally removed today after almost three and a half years! 

    2104718698_TownHallHereford.thumb.jpg.10888c388bb52e9d1fa564a2cfaa8dab.jpg

    The entrance canopy has undergone extensive repair work as it had settled by approximately 50mm and required additional strengthening steel rods to be placed in order to give additional support and a large part of the canopy has been completely replaced together with remedial terracotta and stone work.

    There is still some cleaning to be done to complete the project but this fine iconic Hereford building is almost back to its former glory.

    By Hereford Voice,

    The new timber walkway construction on the embankment of Belmont Pools (to improve the safety of pedestrians/cyclists across the causeway) has now been completed and looks fabulous! 

    We originally broke this story back in April on our Facebook Page here but forgot to add it to our forums, so here are the photographs we took at the time.

    Jeffery Epstein rearrested many vip’s must be nervous

    Eymerk Hunt
    By Eymerk Hunt,

    Huge story from over the pond with the re arrest of Jeffery Epstein. He was the billionaire who had a private island getaway. Where he used to fly in v v v famous people on his private jet the Lolita express. Names such as Bill Clinton, prince Andrew, Stephen hawking, woody allen,the crown prince of Saudi, and many more.

     He is arrested on child exploitation charges and child sex trafficking. Basically he flew the rich and famous there so they could have fun with kids and some other very sinister things . Away from the eyes of the world.  This is going to be an interesting story. If he squeals then big names could fall.

    Shop on Belmont Road/ Hereford Times

    locallady
    By locallady,

    As someone who occasionally buys things from the corner shop on Belmont Road/Avenue. I was shocked to see the photo and report online this morning. The staff there are always polite and friendly. The customers are not all boozers. I often see older people who don't want to walk as far as Asda.  I really think the Hereford Times should get their act together when publishing photographs of the wrong place (not the first time) The people who run this shop deserve a proper apology.

    Also, the real shop in question was previously a newsagents before Asda opened, then selling washing machines etc. I have seen no planning applications for change of use to allow selling food etc. . If the licensing people object, why has no change of use been approved.

      This is the profile of a new terrace of brick-built houses near Birmingham city centre (designed by the Courtyard's architect Glen Howells) which is due to be unveiled later this month by the developer Urban Splash. What a pity something as architecturally well-mannered as this couldn't have gone up on the ex-Rockfield DIY site alongside Hereford Station, which will shortly be playing host to a student accommodation block which looks more like a STASSI training centre!

      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!
