  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 W
  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.

  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.
  15. Happy new year to you all, thank you for your continued support, here is to a fantastic 2020
  16. Can't think of anything wrong with Jeremy Corbyn apart from... Invited two IRA members to parliament two weeks after the Brighton bombing. Attended Bloody Sunday commemoration with bomber Brendan McKenna. Attended meeting with Provisional IRA member Raymond McCartney. Hosted IRA linked Mitchell McLaughlin in parliament. Spoke alongside IRA terrorist Martina Anderson. Attended Sinn Fein dinner with IRA bomber Gerry Kelly. Chaired Irish republican event with IRA bomber Brendan MacFarlane. Attended Bobby Sands commemoration honouring IRA terrorists. St
  17. Really happy to see something finally possibly happening with the new administration in Hereford. This lights out trial is long overdue. Hopefully we can also look at making some of the other traffic lights part-time in other words, turned off between 7pm-7am for example, pointless sitting on a red light at 3am when there are hardly any other vehicles around.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. Well they have finally admitted that their scheme does not work! Source
  21. With the new administration we may actually get a lights our trail! We still have our active petitions on here too.
  22. Now that we have a new administration this could now come to fruition, hopefully we can look at a traffic lights out trial too.
  23. Maybe now we can get our campaigns going, in particular a tram along the GWW is a real possibility and hopefully a traffic lights out trial
