  1. Thank you Lady Darnely for your Service to this County , the Armed Forces and Veterans . Enjoy your retirement.
  2. It will be very interesting to know what the cost was to mark the lanes etc. Plus the cost of revert it back to what it was ? As somebody said the other day .......it's the Council Officers who do all the planning but it's the Councillors who get the praise if it works or the flack if it's a failure .
  3. Won a signed copy of a book written by one of the Team involved at the Hereford Armed Forces and Veterans Breakfast Club a couple of years ago - believe his code name was Mink.
  4. In my previous life ( 30 yrs ago ) as a Police Officer ( not in WMP ) and on street patrol we were expected to pay our respects by facing the Hearse and salute .
  5. I see that the car park at the rear of the County Bus Station has been closed to the general public and has been set aside for Emergency Workers only . Presume that this is a Council owned car park
  6. Anybody having problems getting onto the HT website ? Have they chose to move to their new location today and decided that in this day and age the Internet is not really important so they will link up over the next couple of days / weeks ?
  7. A few weeks ago the Council removed an established tree from Commercial Rd Hereford on the pavement outside the old Cinema ( Kingdom Church ? ) close to the kerb - for whatever reason , I would think for H and S reason -,to their credit they replaced it with what is probably call a sapling . The photo , taken today shows that that the tree had been snapped off , and all that's left is a short trunk . In my opinion it's no good people going on about Climate Change etc when this apparent Criminal Damage is happening ?!
  8. Wondering if the move takes place if they will have a Police Enquiry Office in the City Centre for members of the public to call in during opening hours ?
  9. Thank you Colin for all the work you do behind the scene to ensure HV is the voice of the area . A very happy and healthy 2020 to you and yours
  10. Plus , of course a very happy and healthy 2020
  11. This is disgraceful and a health problem . re your comment relating to the younger generation , I am a regular caller at Greggs in Broad St . I stand in the queue with my red re usable mug for my coffee , because I supply the mug I get 20p off my coffee , reduced from £1.90 to £1.70 . It never ceases to amaze me the number of youngsters who ,it appears are happy to pay the extra 20p to have their drink in a one use mug .
  12. Very interested to know why Herefordshire CC Press Release did not name the person who " arranged " for the disposal of this furniture when it was published int the HT after the Court case . i hope that the Council read some if the comments on the HT article , they appear to give clues as to who removed the stuff from the home .
  13. From BBC webpage 14/10/19 For info ....... Don't know if All Parking Services UK were " supervising " any Hereford private car parks . A private parking ticket company allowed a fine to be issued without proper checks being carried out, an undercover BBC investigation has found. All Parking Services UK Ltd sent signs to journalists without identity checks, leading to a car owner being sent a £100 fine for parking in Newport. The firm has been suspended by the DVLA and the British Parking Association (BPA) is investigating. All Parking Services said it was co-operating with inve
  14. Yesterday Tuesday 8th October an RTC occurred in Broad St Hereford . From what I know it happened near to the RSPCA Charity Shop. it appears that an automatic car driven by an elderly driver ( guessed at +80 ) reversed out of a parking bay by the Oxfam Shop and for whatever reason kept reversing and swerved into a car which had just parked in a bay by the RSPCA shop , in doing so also hit another car in another bay . So its three cars damaged . The driver of the stationary car banged into is complaining of neck injuries. Ambulance and Police called . Cut a long story short , NO PO
  15. I understand that the Home Office have told both Forces that rather than the Alliance terminating in the coming week the termination will be in three months time . Apparently Warwickshire Services are not ready for the break hence the extension
  16. This Change of Use is nothing new ...........I can recall in the early 90s the Government of the day was encouraging this change of use in Midland town centres from shops etc to flats etc. again to bring more life into the town centres Perhaps Twowheelgood can confirm ?
  17. Incident resolved , 65 yr old man apparently arrested for firearms offence(s) . As an aside I can see that in the near future ( two to five years )all Police Officers will carry a firearm .
  18. Update from West Mercia Police Officers are currently responding to an incident this morning (Monday 16 September) in Hinton Road, #Hereford. A cordon is currently in place. Please take an alternative route. We will update as soon as possible.
  19. You have very difficult times ahead Martin , I wish you and your Partner all the very best positive luck and good fortune in the future .
  20. Been advised that Ian MILLS , the Deputy Editor of the HT is moving on in September. i have always found him a very responsive Journalist , who has reacted to my emails honestly and positively .
  21. Appears a very good initiative . My concern is that I expect that a number of Hirers will not own / possess a Cycle Helmet and therefore at greater risk of serious injury when using the cycles
  22. Today is International Women in Engineering Day (INWED). INWED is an international awareness campaign to raise the profile of women in engineering and focuses attention on the amazing career opportunities available to girls in this exciting industry. I copied the above from an Armed Forces Group , believe that the proposed Engineering University in Hereford have missed an opportunity to spread the word further on this special day - you might be aware that the Armed Forces have numerous opportunities for Women in Engineering.
  23. Sounds like an excuse for a Party .... Next year's early May bank holiday will be moved back by four days in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. May Day is traditionally held on a Monday but will be put back to Friday 8 May 2020. VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe. The holiday will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events. They will include more than 20,000 pubs encouraging people to toast the heroes of the
