  2. Nigel Farage says the Brexit Party will NOT stand against the Tories in the general election - but WILL target Labour-held seats. Not that it would of made much difference to the vote in Hereford and South Herefordshire seat. Although it would have been nice to vote BREXIT because all the others are a waste of time. I just hope Boris stands by his promise to get us out of the EU, although his BREXIT is not a no deal, but one with strings attached.

  9. Election period timetable 6 November - Parliament dissolved Parliament will be officially dissolved shortly after midnight and suspended from the start of the following day. This will trigger the five week campaign period before the polling date and, as dictated by election laws, MPs will not sit in the Commons for 25 working days in the lead-up to the vote. This also marks the beginning of "purdah", the pre-election period during which there are restrictions on what civil servants are allowed to do. They must continue to work but must avoid anything that could influence the election - such as by publishing a press release promoting the governing party - or that could call into question their impartiality. During this time the governing party should not make any long term plans or policy decisions for the country unless deemed necessary. 7 November - Receipt of writ The election writ - the legal documents authorise the holding of a general election or by-election - is issued declaring a vote will be held in each constituency. 11 November - Notice of election The publication of notice of election must be given in constituencies no later than 4pm 14 November - Candidates' deadline All candidates wishing to stand in the election must have submitted their nomination papers by 4pm in order to stand in the election. This is also the deadline for those withdrawing from the election race or for anyone wishing to make an objection to a candidate standing. 16 November - Candidate lists published Once all the nominations have been received and confirmed, the final lists of candidates will be published. You will be able to see the list of who is standing in your constituency by looking on your local authority website or on a noticeboard in their offices, where the names should be published. 26 November - Voter registration deadline The final deadline to register to vote for the election, which you can do by visiting the Government website, is at midnight. If you do not register to vote by this date you will not be able to vote in the election on 12 December. The deadline for those wishing to apply for postal voting for the first time, or for those wishing to change preferences for proxy voting, is at 5pm. 3 December - NATO Summit From 3 to 4 December the 2019 NATO Summit will take place in London. This will mean that the world's leaders - including US President Trump and European leaders - will descend on the capital whilst MPs are in full campaign flow and just a week before the final vote. 4 December - Proxy voting deadline The deadline for those wishing to apply to vote by proxy for the first time is 5pm. There is scope to vote by proxy if you have not applied by this date if you suffer from an emergency which will prevent you from voting. 12 December - Polling day The polls will open from 7.00 am to 10.00 pm. After they close at 10.00 pm exit polls will be published which will give the first indication as to what the final result will be. The results will then be published throughout the night and early hours of the morning. 13 December - Result By mid-morning the following day we will know what the next Parliament is going to look like. If no majority is won the leader of the biggest party will enter into talks with others about forming a coalition government or a confidence and supply arrangement.
  10. This one in Eign Street has been approved P193252/F
  11. My water is still off in CHARLTON aVE
  12. Just returned home at 6pm and water back on at Muir Close.
  13. Welsh Water Update: Welsh Water have set up water collection points for anyone that requires bottled water. These are located at Tesco Belmont and Asda this evening. They are doing everything that they can to to restore drinking water supplies as soon as possible.
  14. This is disgraceful and a health problem . re your comment relating to the younger generation , I am a regular caller at Greggs in Broad St . I stand in the queue with my red re usable mug for my coffee , because I supply the mug I get 20p off my coffee , reduced from £1.90 to £1.70 . It never ceases to amaze me the number of youngsters who ,it appears are happy to pay the extra 20p to have their drink in a one use mug .
  15. Very interested to know why Herefordshire CC Press Release did not name the person who " arranged " for the disposal of this furniture when it was published int the HT after the Court case . i hope that the Council read some if the comments on the HT article , they appear to give clues as to who removed the stuff from the home .
  16. No Water? Welsh Water have confirmed that due to a burst water main during the early hours of this morning has resulted in large parts of the city with being without water or reduced water pressure. Residents in the Belmont, Newton Farm, Redhill, Whitecross and King's Acre areas of Hereford are affected Welsh Water are working hard and hoping to have all services restored later this morning.
  17. Saving the planet? Somebody every couple of months deposits a bag of cat litter and other items behind the garages between Muir Close and Sherborne Close and expects somebody to dispose of their waste. This is usually done by myself on a regular weekly litter pick. However I can't be bothered to tidy this mess up after this waster left his rubbish again behind the garages and some other idiot thought it would be fun to kick the contents over the footpath for others to walk through. Don't these people have waste bins to dispose of their waste properly. . People (usually the younger generation) go on about saving the planet from pollution yet most of the litter I pick up is drink cans, fast food wrappings, scratch cards and sweet papers. A lot of the cans of drinks are labelled energy drinks, but obviously those drinking these have not got the strength to throw the items into waste bins. There are three bins in my area close to the local shop - why don't they use them? These plastic tops of drinks bottles are easily washed down the drains and need to be attached to the bottle. Another twist to recycling is the habit of some people putting a quantity of cans and bottles in black plastic bags. These are usually left by the waste bins or recycling bins. However the council will not recycle black plastic bags and leave the items on the footpath or behind outbuildings were they are dumped. The streets on our estates are now littered regularly, the drains blocked and kerbs overgrown with weeds. Slowly and surely this adds to the blighting of the area and our planet which the younger future generation couldn't care less about.

  19. So the guy that suggested the competition in the first place is the winner, out of 700 entries? A little odd methinks, especially as he's done the same thing for numerous other counties. This a mediocre design, a dumbed down copy of the unofficial flag, which is far better.
  20. Resident failed in their ‘duty of care’ when household waste was fly tipped A resident from Putson has been fined for illegally disposing of waste in a case taken to Hereford Magistrates’ Court by Herefordshire Council’s Community Protection Team. The individual was sentenced on Tuesday 17 September 2019 after pleading guilty to failing to secure the transfer of waste with a written description of the waste. They were sentenced to a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs of £600 plus a £20 victim surcharge. The court heard that unwanted furniture was removed from the home address of the Putson resident by a waste collector. The individual failed to obtain a waste transfer note and check that a waste carrier’s licence was held. On 28 December 2018, the removed furniture was found fly tipped on the roadside embankment of the country lane which sits between the A49 and A465 in Hereford. A disgusted resident posted a photograph of the fly tipping on social media and an investigation by the council’s Community Protection Team led to the identification of the Putson resident who failed to provide a detailed account as to who had collected the furniture. Without information about the waste collector, there was not enough evidence to complete a full investigation. David Hough, Herefordshire Council’s Trading Standards Service Manager said: Residents can call 01432 260051 to arrange a kerbside collection of bulky items from Herefordshire Council which costs £25 per three items (fridges or freezers cost £20 per item). Herefordshire Council’s Community Protection Team will investigate fly tipping which is reported by calling 01432 261761 or online at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/flytipping

  22. Most Hereford Bulls have their horns polled when they are calfs & the horns on this bull are not correct for an un polled Bull. Oh and no sign of either apples or hops.....Just saying
  23. Herefordshire's new official flag has just been unveiled and it's now flying at the Cathedral tower. Almost 700 people entered the competition to design the flag and the winner was Jason Saber from Kent. Our original discussion can be found HERE The flag shows a bull's head and the River Wye on a red background to represent the county's deep red soil which was Design C. Your thoughts?

  25. DEAR ALL, I AM UNABLE TO REPLY TO POST, I had an accident 3 weeks ago and sustained injuries that resulted in 5 hour surgery. I returned home today.....Glenda
  26. To précis the tweet - Hereford councillors have blasted one of Britain’s largest housebuilding firms for not acknowledging climate change with their plans for 300 south of the city.Taylor Wimpey UK, who build and sell more than 10,000 homes each year, have set their sights on land north and south of Grafton lane.But Hereford city councillors said the High Wycombe-based company told them that they would not include environmentally friendly measures such as electric charging points, solar panels and more energy efficient heating in the scheme. I don't understand why City Councillors don't understand that volume builders answer to their shareholders and not Parish Councillors. Of course they're not going to provide anything that isn't required by law, that hits their profits. They have no environmental conscience or they wouldn't be building on prime agricultural land.
