    “The statue is incredibly moving to see and we are hoping that it will stimulate debate and discussion around the subject of violent crime and how to prevent it.

    Even after the Angel has left us, we are hoping to continue with a programme of legacy events, so that important messages regarding the futility of violent crime are continued into the future.

    Knife Angel Arrives in Hereford on Monday!

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    The powerful sculpture created from over 100,000 knives is due to arrive in Hereford on Monday as a stark warning of the impact of knife crime.

    210514298.jpg.gallery.thumb.jpg.2ee9f0184a357a95a1f4e4ddc9ff8b08.jpg

    The Knife Angel will be on display outside Hereford Cathedral for a month long visit and will highlight and raise awareness around knife crime and the devastating effects that it can have for those victims and their families.

    During the month there will be a series of events and workshops taking place. We have drawn up a complete and comprehensive list of venues, dates and times etc, which you can find here 👉 https://hfd.news/em9

    Hereford Voice is proud to be an official 'Working Partner' with this fabulous charity.

    Riverside railings need repairing as a matter of urgency

    Hereford Voice
    By Hereford Voice,

    The riverside railings were severely damaged during the floods of early 2020 and again this year.

    IMG_1250.thumb.jpeg.3cb7a8a9031ca99f78a3f3077652a51a.jpeg

    As you can see from these photographs the railings are clearly unsafe and look like they could fall into the river at anytime.

    IMG_1252.thumb.jpeg.895c586740aa99738345ed6ce1478bac.jpeg

    IMG_1254.thumb.jpeg.f5978a5280d8275e4ff58b6ead02e4c5.jpeg

    The gap that has been exposed is clearly dangerous even though Herefordshire Council contractors have placed barriers across but this needs addressing as a matter of urgency and we will be pushing the Council for an answer this week on when the public can expect these railings to be repaired.


    B4224 Fownhope Road repair work has been complex and substantial

    By Hereford Voice,

    The B4224 Fiddler's Green to Fownhope road is due to reopen to traffic tomorrow (Friday 25th March)

    1555124989_StoneCottage.thumb.jpg.a03950144da6a2f252a2169763216a47.jpg

    Mairead Lane, Head of Infrastructure Delivery, said:

    Quote

     

    "Our challenge has been to safely reopen the B4224 at Fownhope as soon as possible. The work needed to repair and safely reopen the B4224 at Fownhope has been complex and substantial. The engineered solution, particularly to the retaining wall at the Stone Cottage site, has taken an incredible amount of work and we have needed to ensure we provide a long-term, reliable repair.

    "We are pleased that works are now complete, but we appreciate that the length of time this has taken has been hugely frustrating. We are sorry that the works have taken longer than originally anticipated, and would like to thank local residents and motorists once again for their patience."
