  6. I’ll be damned if I follow this madness and comply by wearing a face mask. And, if the shops refuse to serve me food, which is essential to prolong my pointless life, then so be it. I’ll starve to death. Whatsmore, if it becomes known nationally and internationally that I’m not complying and all permanent sitting members of the United Nations draft a binding resolution to force me to wear a mask and threaten that if I bloody don’t theyll carry out strategic bombing thrice fortnightly on me and my abode, still, even then, I won’t comply with this madness. They can flatten the place. I

The caption on the card says, "Hereford, Cathedral from the River Bank" It is printed and has been postally used dated September 15th 1908, what is written on the reverse is fascinating... see here >>> https://hfd.news/2rd

The Iranian Embassy Siege 40th Anniversary The Iranian Embassy siege took place from 30 April to 5 May 1980, after a group of six armed men stormed the Iranian embassy on Prince's Gate in South Kensington, London. Operation 'Nimrod' began. The gunmen, members of Arabs of KSA group campaigning for Arab national sovereignty in the southern Iranian region of Khuzestan Province, took 26 people hostage, mostly embassy staff, but also several visitors, as well as a police officer who had been guarding the embassy.

  13. We are absolutely thrilled and excited to announce today that we have joined teams and created a new partnership with our brilliant friends over at Old Hereford Pics. The original Old Hereford Pics was established by local Herefordian, Chris Adcocks way back in 2008. The aim of their websites was to give a different look at Old Hereford with new and old pictures of its people, its buildings, its businesses and events from over the years and in Chris's words to offer After much deliberation Chris announced that due to family commitments and not having the hours to keep up w

  17. Absolutely, and well done to all involved! I think this is a lovely idea and one which should be adopted annually. Back in Aug 2018, Mrs Fandango and I spent a couple of days in Thornbury, on the other side of the Severn. I know it's a much smaller town, but they pride themselves on their planters and baskets which look verdant all summer. I'm sure they draw people in and they spend more time (and no doubt, money), in the centre, because it's such a nice environment.

Company claims dog poo litter in Hereford has risen massively By James Thomas, Hereford Times - 18th February 2021 A waste company has claimed dog poo litter is up 200 per cent since the coronavirus lockdown started WALKING the dog has become one of the few opportunities to get outside for some fresh air during lockdown, but it has come at a stinking, germ-ridden cost, according to a cleaning company. Divert.co.uk, a dog poo litter removal company, claimed dog poo litter in Hereford has been "up 200 per cent since lockdown", which it says is a "clear indicator that not all dog o

  20. Why is so much through traffic still allowed to use Newmarket/Blueschool Streets when the plan was for it to use the Link Road, This would then allow work to those streets so as to provide an easier pedestrian connection between the OLM and the city centre and a more pleasant environment?

  23. What's going to happen after Coronavirus Where are we going when Coronavirus fades away and the government has run its course in keeping us at home.The sheer economic disaster coming and affecting everyone is already being discussed by some MPs. One remedy is to impose a one off wealth tax. The idea is that everyone – households and businesses, rich and poor – has to pay a sum equivalent to a chunk of their net assets. This would reverse taxation regimes across the world which tax income far more than the taxation of wealth. Ed Conway, the economics editor at Sky News, writing in the

Unpaid carers save UK state £530 million every day of the pandemic With every day of the COVID-19 pandemic that passes, unpaid carers are saving the UK state £530 million in the care they provide, new research by charity Carers UK shows. The research, released for Carers Rights Day, estimates that the care provided by people looking after older, disabled and seriously ill relatives and friends during the pandemic stands at £135 billion so far, after just eight months.

  27. What an embarrassment. The gormless Council say we need extra wide pavements for social distancing. Firstly how many people do you see feeling they need to use this extra space? Secondly why if the space is need do you half block it up with planters? Thirdly a row of planters with just random shrubs that BBLP have lying about - I will put their survival rate at 20% What an utter shambles

  28. Received this email from Jesse Norman MP today 12th August 2020. As they say all publicity is good publicity. The only good news is that a bypass is possible and that it should go east as Jesse submitted to the Department of Transport and Herefordshire Council years ago Dear Martin, As you may have seen, I was delighted to welcome the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, to Hereford yesterday as he visited the County Hospital and the site of the new Hereford Medical Centre. It was fantastic for him to see the work being done to replace the old hutted wards with new builds

  29. And going towards Aylestone it just stops outside The Commercial. Now that might be handy for young Bobby47! However both lanes seeing how they are laid out and go nowhere are hardly likely to encourage people to get on their bikes. I consider myself to be an experienced cyclist but tonight at 6.30 I felt no safer using the cycle lane than I have for years using that route. i.e. it is flipping dangerous!

Went over yesterday (Monday) and it's got 50% bigger and deeper in a couple of days ... So be careful if you are using that bit of road! If you hit it full on there's a potential to do some damage!

Hereford’s Mayfair has been with us since the 12th Century and it was originally known as St Ethelbert’s Fair and started back in 1121 and a street fair has been held in the city ever since. Every year the streets are closed off in the city centre and the thrilling rides and stalls with all their lights, music, food and prizes open for this three day annual street extravaganza. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus
