  2. What a lovely guy he was. A true gentleman. My deepest condolences are with his wife and children 🙏🏼
  3. Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crews were called to a fire late last night in Herefordshire caused by BBQ. All 3 appliances from Leominster Fire Station were called to an outbuilding on fire just outside of Leominster. Crews used a hose reel, thermal imaging camera, ladders and hand tools to extinguish the fire and to remove the roof sheets to inspect for signs of fire spread. The source of ignition for this fire was from cooking and heating during outside entertaining. With this type of activity set to increase during the following months, please take care wh

  5. The Knife Angel (Also referred to as the National Monument Against Violence & Aggression) is a contemporary sculpture formed from 100,000 confiscated knives and is an incredible 27ft in height and weighing over 3.5 tonnes, created by artist Alfie Bradley and the The British Ironwork Centre based in Oswestry. This thought-provoking angel artwork is scheduled to be hosted by the magnificent Hereford Cathedral from 14 June for 28 days.

  6. Herefordshire Council teams have recently completed a programme of resurfacing and drainage works on the C1095 - Tillington in Herefordshire. The roads look a lot better.
  7. We have received tributes following the passing of popular and well liked local Dentist Bob Binnersley, who sadly died this week. A message on the St Martins Dental & Implant Clinic that he founded in 1989 announced the sad news yesterday. Bob Binnersley
  8. These units were not empty for long! 'Amazing Asia' is due to open within the next 3 months at the Hereford Old Market Shopping Centre The restaurant is to occupy the former Prezzo building and boasts that over 80 items of Indian and Thai cuisine will be available on the menu. More 'Positive News' for a brighter 'Positive Hereford' with even more shops and eateries opening over the summer.
  9. Who remembers the Launderette on the Belmont Road? The launderette eventually moved to St Martin's Street Hereford in 2012 and the former building become home to Shire Stoves. The building has this week been demolished to make way for a new project, another local landmark disappears.
  10. The figures are interesting. At the Council elections in 2019, Newton Farm had by far the lowest turnout - 18.6%. Just 554 people voted, out of nearly 3 000 on the electoral register (and 17 people had their votes ruled as spoilt). The winning candidate received votes from just under 6% of the electorate. If the level of turnout was repeated at this by-election, the arithmetic is such that a candidate could still win even if they got no more than 100 votes - 3% of the electorate. So make sure you vote, and encourage everyone around you to do so.
  11. Unfortunately these large store companies have realised that their business is making just as much money on the internet. By closing the stores the staff are made redundant and they will not be paying rent and business rates - economic fact. The worst example is Amazon. The town centres have to change to get people in.

  13. Seven candidates pitching for this - given the 2019 election garnered less than 1000 votes, they'll be spread very thin this time. Newton_Farm_Ward_SPN.docx.pdf
  14. I had the honour of meeting HRH on his many visit's to Hereford with the the Queen, but my lasting memory was in 2008 when I was invited to Buckingham Palace to a garden party whilst I was your councillor, he came up to speak to me and was very pleasant. I will hold the memory of meeting him for the rest of my life. RIP your Royal Highness.
  15. I have to agree with you Damian, too many people complaining for the sake of complaining
  16. Have you seen that they have nicked the Positive News heading recently. I thought that their copy of traffic and travel was bad enough .😠
  17. Hereford Voice have this evening received reports that the Oak Furnitureland store on the Salmon Retail Park, Holmer Road Hereford will reopen Monday with an immediate 'closing down' sale. We are informed that staff we given just 4 weeks notice of redundancy this morning and informed that the Hereford branch is scheduled to close in May.
