  2. Plans have been submitted for the proposed repair and replacement of timber-frame infill panels and both externally and internally at the Black & White House Museum in Hereford city centre. The Black & White House Museum, formerly the Old House Museum, is a Grade I listed, timber-framed merchants house, constructed in 1621, and situated in its original location in High Town, Hereford. Its external and internal fabric has experienced several phases of change over the preceding centuries with the most comprehensive changes occurring in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

  5. Disturbing seeing rubbish being left on the hills, commons & car parks of Malvern Hills Trust land. If you can't leave it the way you find it then politely consider staying away and not spoiling it for others. Malvern Cops spotted a few youths having a BBQ and made to tidy up. More people were also removed from Gullet Quarry yesterday. Details of those breaking Malvern Hills Trust bylaws taken for potential enforcement. The owners of the disgusting amounts of rubbish left behind couldn't be identified. What is wrong with some people? First of all people shouldn't be having BBQ's particularly with all of their dry weather we have been enjoying these past few months and it is forbidden on Malvern Hills Trust land. There are been many field and bush fires reported recently across the county by Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service including another one just today! Crews from Evesham, Ledbury, Pershore, Tewksbury and Worcester have extinguished a barn fire at Bredon near Tewksbury involving 50 hay bales.
  6. Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service attended a fire at Kingstone. Upon arrival they were faced with a double garage with two vehicles well alight and the fire had spread to the roof space of the adjoining house with crews quickly bringing the fire under control using hose reels and BA. Six pumps and a water carrier together with crews from Hereford, Peterchurch, Eardisley and Ewyas Harold fire stations all attended the scene. As can be seen from the photo the garage and two cars were completely destroyed. Crews were left on scene dampening down hot spots with an inspection organised later in the evening. All persons were accounted for with no injuries reported.
  7. Rachel Jones has been appointed as the Assistant Chief Constable for Local Policing and Operations at West Mercia Police and will join the force in the middle of June 2020. Rachel’s first twelve years’ service were in Gloucestershire Constabulary, where she undertook a wide range of uniformed, detective and business related roles, as well as tactical firearms, public order and major incident command, including Gold Control for the 2007 floods and subsequent loss of water to 350,000 people for two weeks. Culminating in the positon of Director of Intelligence, as South West Regional Lead for Intelligence, she oversaw the creation of the then South West Regional Intelligence Unit prior to transferring to West Midlands Police in 2008. Working in Local Policing, Programme Change and Child Protection in her first few years in West Midlands Police, in 2012 Rachel was appointed Head of Professional Standards where she led the development and implementation of the Force Integrity Programme. Rachel became Local Policing Commander for the North of Birmingham in 2013. Reframing the role of the Partnership Team, she worked with partner agencies and communities to uplift services to vulnerable people. She also led on delivery of the Troubled Families Programme and proposals for broader adoption of early intervention and prevention practices across the Force and partner agencies regionally. This resulted in her appointment in 2016 to lead the West Midlands Combined Authority Public Service Reform Programme with responsibility for developing the framework for more joined-up working across the public sector. She also held complementary positions of Force Intervention and Prevention lead and Commander for Corporate Integrated Offender Management. As Head of Force Criminal Investigations Department, Rachel delivered a change programme which brought all investigative functions, from Homicide to those previously delivered by Local Policing Commands, into a Force-wide investigative model and saw the creation of additional disciplines focusing on harm prevention, diversion and vulnerability. Later as Temporary ACC for the Crime Portfolio, Rachel had responsibility for Forensics, Criminal Justice Services; Force CID; Public Protection and Intelligence. Most recently, Rachel has been working for the NPCC on police pay and conditions, pay reform and the Police Uplift Programme. Rachel lives in Worcestershire with her partner and young daughter.
  8. Herefordshire Council leaders have agreed in principle to spend £4.5m on buying Maylord Shopping Centre in Hereford Council officers say the purchase would give them the opportunity to develop the site in line with their plans to grow the county’s economy. They expect the rental income from the property to cover maintenance and running costs, leaving a surplus cash return for the council to meet its key priorities. According to council documents the cost of purchasing the premises and paying stamp duty amounts to £4.25m while the purchasing costs and legal fees amount to £200,000 and £50,000 respectively. The council’s decision report says it will need an agent to manage the site who would provide a fully managed service dealing with the rental and the maintenance requirements. They say an agent would provide them with the expertise for managing the commercial elements of the site. They believe the management company’s fees would be covered by the rental income. However, a number of councillors are concerned about purchasing properties at such an uncertain time for the economy when the valuation at present and immediate future is questionable. The decision to purchase the freehold premises is subject to the chief finance officer being satisfied that appropriate heads of terms have been agreed, due diligence has been completed and the purchase provides value for money. The director economy and place, in consultation with the cabinet member commissioning, procurement and assets, has been authorised to complete the acquisition and to take all operational decisions necessary to appoint a management company.
