  1. A planning application has been submitted to Herefordshire Council for the proposed change of use from retail costume shop (Class A1/E) to a fish and chip shop (Class A5/Sui Generis) and installation of bespoke extraction system. The premises in Bridge Street Hereford were previously occupied by Fancy Pants costumes and party shop. Planning application P210802/F
  2. We had great fun on them in both Poland and Miami, where you seem to be able to ride them on the pavements and roads, loads of people using them with no problems, they are very popular.
  3. Vile places. I have visited the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau on a few occasions and it is so vast you see and learn something new on each visit. A very thought provoking place indeed.
  4. Personally, I Love the Old Market, it was something new and exciting for the city, I do not believe that existing large chains were 'poached' they saw an opportunity and took it. Why would you not be attracted by a brand new building with initial concessions on the rent? The problem is that it was all disjointed from the start and should have incorporated the existing shops in the city centre Example; They could have had a walkway directly from the Multi-storey car part straight across the road directly into Maylord Orchards, this would have prevented people waiting at the lights at the Wellington Pub and constantly stopping the flow of traffic. I mentioned this in a council meeting that I was invited too once to be sniggered at and told by another councillor that English Heritage would not allow a walkway to be built over the top of the ancient city walls, to which I replied they allowed Tesco to build actually within the walls! There was no further response from that councillor... I was disappointed like many people that the Old Market was not covered with a roof! It should have been all in door, they could have had apartments on the roof. Car park should have been FREE for the first two hours providing you purchase goods etc.. When I travel to shopping centres in Europe nearly all parking is Free, in Poland they actually provide free buses across he cities to collect shoppers. The demise of many of these large retailers does not lay at the door of the old Market but at the poor management and greedy CEO's of these companies. How many time have you been in a shop, you cannot find what you are looking for or you cannot find your size clothing so you then ask an assistant to help you to immediately then be told by that person 'Oh you can buy this online', I always tell that person that if they tell too many people the same thing they will put themselves out of a job...
  5. Good to see these bikes so popular, e-scooters on the way too
  6. You may have already noticed some changes on the site, I am in the process of some nice new updates and this also includes updating the themes used by the forum, so you are not imagining it πŸ˜€ I hope to have it all complete within a week or so please bare with me and carry on using the site as normal. Colin
  7. We have been running a competition for the past few weeks to come up with a suitable name for our famous Hereford Bull Statue in the city centre. (all unofficially of course, but if it's good enough maybe we can persuade the Council to make it official! Who knows) We have now drawn up a shortlist of names from all the entries and created a poll HERE πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ https://hfd.news/ox8 πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ Let's see which is the most popular winning entry! (Poll ends Saturday 12th)
  8. Coffee is excellent and the owners are really nice pleasant guys too. This is a great spot so I really hope that this is a success for them.
  9. I see people riding bikes on footpaths all the time, I also see many cyclists ignoring traffic lights and nothing is ever done about it. Police are quick to jump on the motorists, cyclists are also road users and in my opinion should also be insured.
  10. STOLEN SIGN! The temporary Canary Bridge banner has stolen. The bridge has been named, not re-named, as a gesture of thanks to the thousands of men and women who worked at Rotherwas during WW1 and WW2 as part of the VE Day 75th anniversary celebrations. Rotherwas Munitions Factory Project would appreciate their sign back. If anyone has any information to the whereabouts of this sign please drop us a message in confidence and we will make sure it is returned. Thank you.
  11. Remember this tree? We discussed weeds along the verges many times including back in 2010 here and again here, it's like an annual event now these debates.
  12. Yes, I noticed this the other day, mindless idiots
  13. The BBC TV licence fee is to rise - days after the corporation unveiled huge cuts at the public service broadcaster. The cost of the annual television licence fee will increase from Β£154.50 to Β£157.50 from April 1. This comes just days after corporation unveils huge cuts and announced 450 job losses and the axing of award-winning The Victoria Derbyshire Show. Meanwhile, Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has suggested the licence fee should be optional. Your thoughts?
  14. Absolutely, these are and will ALWAYS be Nazi German Death Camps! They just happened to be located in the Centre of Europe in Poland.
