  1. Last week
  2. Roger.... was not 'out of touch' when I posted that information the court case was going through, a couple of days later it said on the news it had been quoshed. Apparently the man that brought the case they found out something about him, also he is a Remainer.
  3. You are 'out of touch' with reality. That court case never got off the ground. Anyone could see that!
  4. There are two live television debates with the candidates for PM, tonight at 6.30pm -8.00pm channel 4 Boris isn't taking part, and Tuesday 8.00pm - 9.00pm channel 1. in which Boris has said he will attend, lets wait and see if he does.
  5. Looking very likely to be Boris Johnson - help
  6. So ignore the f8ck off sized supermarket car park 10 yards' away! Or Lidl? Just Political speak again. Ignoring reality!
  7. There should be more prosecutions!
  8. And yet the same company wanted to wipe out The Broad Leys. Good on the Co op for the good work they do. Each time you shop there you are contributing to local charities of your choosing.
  9. I saw this yesterday on the TV, good to see companies supporting local groups
  10. Ground breaking moment for cyber security in Hereford Work is due to start on the £9 million Cyber Quarter - Midlands Centre for Cyber Security in Hereford and was marked by an official ground breaking ceremony on Friday 7 June. The trail-blazing project on Skylon Park, Hereford Enterprise Zone, is a joint venture between the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council and part-funded by the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Cllr David Hitchiner, Leader of Herefordshire Council, said: Professor Geoff Layer, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Wolverhampton, said: Andrew Manning Cox, chairman of Hereford Enterprise Zone and Marches LEP board member, said The 2,000 square metre building, designed by Associated Architects and built by Spellar Metcalfe, will provide significant resources for research and development across three cyber laboratories, advanced training facilities as part of the WCRI and additional business space for up to 16 cyber companies. The centre, which secured £2.82m of funding via the Marches LEP’s Growth Deal with Government in 2017, is part of the new Cyber Quarter at Skylon Park, already home to numerous defence and security sector businesses. The new centre incorporates a full height glass atrium to provide a dual break-out space and function hall, alongside the main three storey building that houses business suites, innovation rooms, IT workshops and a ‘Cyber Range’ – a cutting edge facility that will defend against the global rise of hacking. The Cyber Quarter - Midlands Centre for Cyber Security is set to reach BREEAM Very Good, an industry-leading standard of sustainability and is set to open in Summer 2020.
  11. The construction of new student accommodation at Station Approach, Hereford, has been given official approval following a decision taken yesterday (Monday 10 June). This means that building work on the 178 bed purpose-built facility can start within the next few weeks and it is planned to be completed ready for students to move in for the academic year starting September 2020. The development of Higher Education is critical to supporting the economic prosperity of the city and wider county, providing opportunities for people to live and learn in Herefordshire, and establishing a workforce that will help local businesses continue to flourish as well as attract new investment. The council is carrying out the project with our development partners, energy and regeneration specialist ENGIE and Cityheart Partnerships. Hereford College of Arts (HCA), which has a proven need for good quality student housing to support its growth plans, will be the main customer of the new accommodation. There will also be the option to provide rooms for students of NMiTE, supporting its development. The site is perfectly located for easy access to local colleges, key transport links and the city centre. Councillor David Hitchiner, Leader of Herefordshire Council, said: “The new student accommodation will provide high quality purpose-built facilities, making Herefordshire an even more attractive proposition for young people looking to study here. We are delighted that this will support our local higher education providers and promote Herefordshire as a great place to study and live. “Station Approach is a key project within the council’s Development and Regeneration Programme (DRP) which will support economic development in the county.” The project will be financed by an external provider and operated by a specialist company. The freehold of the site will be retained by the council. The council car park at Station Approach will close to allow the development, but the NCP car park will continue to operate. Residents and visitors are asked to make use of the existing capacity in the council’s other car parks around the city centre, and new signage along Station Approach will help direct people to Merton Meadow.
  12. Earlier
  13. Have you got the percentage of the British Population [to hand] who voted for Corbyn to be the next Prime Minister? I'm obviously referring to the Leadership Election he won. People need to recognise the difference between Party Leadership Elections and General Elections.
  14. According to news and papers this morning 5 of the candidates are about to drop out of the running for PM, also 4 have admitted taking drugs within the last 20 years. The papers have really gone to town on Michael Gove for taking cocaine also Andrew Marr asked him on his show this morning should he be standing for PM position.
  15. Thank you John for the clarification. I am not looking for credit but keen to push our tram campaign forward and also our traffic lights out (or part time) idea. Good now that we have everyone onside and some of these ideas may come to fruition and at least be given a trial.
  16. Hi Colin and gang, the proposals put forward were not submitted by the Council but by the Hereford Sustainable Transport Group to the DfT and were in a response to the government's 'call for evidence'. This group put forward a detailed plan after some discussions with Jesse Norman MP. The Council is happy to consider the results when they come back to the HSTG because like Colin I think we should look at the possibility of ultra-light rail. So it's not a Council project or pitch yet but we may become involved. I did in my statement thank all groups that had pushed for this - meaning Col and Hereford Voice as well as others. Hereford Voice has done a huge amount in raising the profile of this idea and can and will be definitely get credit if things progress. Thanks Col and gang for all your graft on this!
  17. Thanks for your kind comments guys but I am not sure if this refers to the idea of a tram along the GWW or if this is something completely different? There is no mention of the GWW maybe @John Harrington can through some light on this story?
  18. Megilleland.... thanks for confirming the date, but in the HT it was supposed to have been the same day as Ross by-election!
  19. Election of a District Councillor for the area of Whitecross Completed nomination papers must be delivered to the Returning Officer at the offices of Herefordshire Council, at the address shown below, on any working day after the date of this notice, between the hours of 10:00am and 4:00pm but before 4:00pm on Friday, 14th June 2019 The poll will take place on Thursday, 11th July 2019 between the hours of 7:00am and 10:00pm Herefordshire Council Electoral Services Town Hall St Owen Street Hereford HR1 2PJ
  20. The by-election for Ross North was won by the Lib Dems it in the HT, no mention of who won Whitecross though.
  21. Mick... I was just thinking the same thing, I was half way to copying this story to put on here, you beat me to it. Hope Colin will contact them with his idea of the tram along GWW.
  22. I have just read this article: It is a pity that there is mention of Colin or Hereford Voice within any of this publication.
  23. Sounds like an excuse for a Party .... Next year's early May bank holiday will be moved back by four days in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. May Day is traditionally held on a Monday but will be put back to Friday 8 May 2020. VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe. The holiday will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events. They will include more than 20,000 pubs encouraging people to toast the heroes of the war, while churches will take part in a Ringing Out For Peace.

  24. I see the council has gone against Bob Matthews wishes by going with the western route for the bypass, In my opinion we just should have two more river crossing that would be better because at the moment the road would be 'a road to no where' which I said at councila few years ago.
  25. Just read in the HT that after considering his constituents comments that he asked for, he has decided not to run for PM
  26. If I remember correctly the Whitecross was an councillor for IOC, the one for Ross was either an Independent or UKIP, unfortunately the man died while he was canvassing.
  27. still two elections to go (Ross and Whitecross) which may or may not change the status quo again..
