Hereford Rural Locality Steward 

I pleased to update you that following a selection process this week an offer will be made to one of the candidates to fill the vacancy left when Steve Churchill moved to another role. All being well the new steward will be in post from early May. I will confirm details when the offer has been formally made and accepted.


Herefordshire Council website is the one-stop-shop for up to date information

Maps for pot holes are available on the Councils website


We hope the above is of interest.

Kind regards

Shane, Mike & Phil.
