  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

  8. We have acquired this old postcard recently and thought it was quite interesting.. 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

  10. 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. On the sixth day the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatc

  11. To be fair hats off to PM Margaret Thatcher for being gutsy enough to give the final order for the SAS to go in, Home Secretary William Whitelaw could not make the decision so sent it across to the PM for her approval, of course she gave it in an instant, the rest is history as they say

  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

The B4224 was dealt a double blow by the storm, which caused a 6.5 metre wide landslip and a separate partial collapse of a 100-metre long retaining wall. Balfour Beatty explain that work at the landslip site is now accelerating, and to help explain the stages they need to go through to reach completion, they have put together some information below. 👇 The road is scheduled to reopen this Friday to all tr

  19. Couple of points = there is a cycle route along the link road. OK is is not segregated but it is there and is well used = the traffic on Blueschool/Newmarket has not really reduced because through traffic is allowed to use it. The road signs do not indicate that the link road should be used for through traffic - why not? Also probably sat navs do not direct to the link road. For example a local company Hereford Quarries have most of their vehicles ignoring the link road! Be proactive and traffic in the centre can be reduced as then can be the width of Blueschool/Newmarket = spe

  23. A binman who was employed by an agency has been informed that he will not be working for Herefordshire Council again after the incident in which he had a momentary 'meltdown' and decided to kick the head off a snowman in Hereford on Tuesday while collecting the bins in the area. Our View: Although you may argue his behaviour was maybe a little odd, we're not sure that it warranted the man losing his job after he had a lapse of judgment. His employers are behaving like 'snowflakes' after all, it's just a snowman which would have naturally disappeared within a few days anyway.

  24. I agree with Colin. The design of the Old Market neglected to merge it with the historic centre. However, those who were involved in the preliminary debates will remember we were promised BlueschoolStreet/Newmarket Street would be downgraded to a ‘leafy boulevard’ with vehicles tricking by at walking pace. We were told the bulk of traffic would be diverted along the new inner ring-road! Of course, none of this has happened and the Old Market exists as a separate entity. It will now wither as a severed limb unless those plans to bring it within the central core are revisited.

  26. Following on from the television saga some time ago I spoke to my internet provider Plusnet and after much discussion the very pleasant man said I needed an ethernet cable because I was reaching the speed I was paying for which is top wack. Anyway bought cable and fixed said same and streaming was ok for about 75% of the time until of course last Monday which apart from Amazon was a total no no. After much checking on the internet it was suggested that a USB Powered Compact Signal Booster 4G might do the trick. I bought a SLX from Amazon for just over £13.00 and I am very pleased to

  27. I saw this going up when I went on my one trip of the week! Somebody please tell me it is sheer coincidence that since then I have had terrible trouble with my television signals - the only thing I can watch is Amazon and even that gets some interference. I know that 4G does cause signal problems but I am Kingstone and that is Belmont Sad old git that I am but I love my television!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Is Polystyrene a green or black bin item (the PDF link isn't working). With it coming up to Christmas and plenty of items packed in polystyrene being bought, this question needs answering. For those who have too much recycle stuff, you can ask for a bigger green bin, or you can buy your own clear bags to put it in and stack near the bin.

  33. Hi well I would like to point out about Commercial Road in Hereford with the alteration to make a cycling Lane, hence cutting down 2 lanes into 1 one and a cycling Lane which I find very unnecessary on that stretch. cycling lanes are a good idea in some areas but that street did not need it. Cycling is supposed to be helpful towards the environment .... and I believe it is but not on Commercial Road.... as we no there used to be two lanes of traffic going down Commercial Road and the traffic used to get very piled up with two Lanes.... and now some congenital idiot has thought " hang on.... t

  34. Herefordshire Council have removed the ugly red barriers along Broad St, King St and Bridge Street and replaced them will more aesthetically pleasing plants, which are much better. All this is necessary so pedestrians can socially-distance and cyclists can ride their bikes safely. These measures are necessary in the fight against this dreadful Coronavirus pandemic as directed and funded by central Government. Once again the city is busy with people which is great to see.

  35. 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

  36. That danger is no different to how it has always been. All this so called cycle lane does is attempt to reserve a space for cyclists where they would have been cycling anyway. So as a cyclist you are still at risk from the parked cars and have to hope that the vehicles passing you keep outside the lane - which in giving cyclists a 1 metre gap when passing they should be doing anyway It is no change from before

  37. The council has put out a you tube post asking what to do with Maylords because it purchased the complex without a plan. I do hope somebody is challenging the investment decision because this situation at best is gross incompetence and at worst smells very fishy.

  40. Noticed this weekend (just gone) that there's a large pothole, inbound, on the Barrs Court side of the metal bridge. 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!
