  1. No hope there - I did contact the Countryside Restoration Trust as in Robin Page who own it to ask their intentions but had a mumbled phone message left. Have heard nothing since. You could contact the Parish Council and ask them if you need their contact details I can supply. It looks so delapidated and sad there.
  2. There are also some interesting slow signs painted onto the road - I wonder if this is proven to slow the traffic down Some photos of these would be good on here
  3. In all honesty how many people are familiar with the word PEDAGOGY or PEDAGOGIES? This word has been used extensively in NMITE's literature. I was asked if I knew the word and had to admit I had never heard of it. Just wonder how many of our Councillors who are signing off on all the planning and financial bumph etc for NMITE are familiar with this word. Just curious
  4. Could not agree with you more Harry - it is in danger of becoming a terrible eyesore without any real use!!
  5. Thank you K Butt sometimes I get it right and sometimes I do not - it is often trial and error. At the moment my tv is behaving better than it was last week.
  6. 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 say that it seems to do the trick. Hope this bit of info assists somebody else in a similar predicament. Wised up guys and gals might know all about these little devices but I did not so can only assume not everybody does. I was going to say we never had this problem with our black and white tv but we did because on very windy blustery days somebody would have to go out and fiddle around with the aerial and keep coming back in to see if it was better!
  7. Well I am not can only watch Amazon at the moment and that even gets a bit dodgy sometimes! I think it could be a BT problem on the west of Hereford so many of my neighbours have sky so they do not have the same problem - oh well there are worse things happening in the world that's for sure!!
  8. 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!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Ah the Buchanan Trust I cannot remember but were they not involved in the sale of Council Farms debacle - I know Tony Johnson was Trustee of the charity - there has been a lot of writing on this Trust - not because they sinned but because they have repeatedly been let down by their Trustees
  10. Beautiful property far too much of this demolishing existing properties to make way for box like new houses - characterless and lifeless
  11. Yes shut up shop. The pumps are still there but there is no one home. The property belongs to the Countryside Restoration Trust who also own Turnastone Court which is just around the corner. I am hoping that the Trust will raise enough money to bring some life back into it - it certainly looks very sad as it is and many people do travel quite some distance to see the pumps and the cycle. Should I see my brother tomorrow who still lives in Turnastone I will ask him for an update.
  12. All a bit of a mess really - with new developments now the Council will not adopt the green areas so the new residents have to be a fairly hefty service charge which is proving to some of the owners to be quite a rip off!!!!!!!!!!!! Mind you it is for these residents to round up on the developer in the first place and demand value for money.
  13. Once upon a time there was green in colour local newspaper it came out on a Wednesday and once Dad had finished doing his bidding (and selling) in the cattle/sheep market he come home with this paper. A bit of a highlight in those days and it really isn't long ago - honest! My experience of Parish magazine is that on the whole they are informative sometimes amusing and sometimes useful but it might well be different for us village dwellers!!
  14. Yes even if you have Ad block on most newspapers now you have to pause the ad block to be able to read it. Oh well perhaps they will read these comments (well we know they do) and attempt to improve our reading experience! On the good news side my sub to HT is now cancelled - the cancellation went very smoothly - so will now buy a hard copy to flick through and recycle!
  15. Scary stuff I am trying to cancel my sub which I took out on Sat
  16. I never know which sub title I should put a forum under so just randomly choose. Anyway with the new subscription charge for the Hereford Times can some well informed person tell me and anybody else who may well be interested that if you pay for the HT digitally do you have an actual HT to read on line (similar to the way Hereford Journal used to do it) or do you just have access to certain reports that are posted online by HT? Further more if you enter a shop and buy a copy of the HT I think I am correct in assuming you can only access a certain amount of reports on line Clarification required I took out a monthly on line HT sub but don't think I will keep it going if there is not a copy of the HT to flick through on line
  17. One good thing is that they mostly use British produce but it is sad that people cannot replicate a greasy burger with dubious fries or whatever takes their fancy at home!
  18. So many people have worked so hard during these times - it has been one of the good things that will be remembered. The innovation the effort and sheer determination to do good things by so many people is uplifting. Hope Hillside stays open now should never have been closed in the first place.
  19. Yes indeed it was some fire and thank God for the prompt actions of the fire service - it could have been really serious and with every thing so tinder dry very quick to take serious hold on neighbouring properties. Thankfully no one was hurt
  20. Noticeably less litter around during the lockdown but come next week when KFC and Macdonalds open the litter will reappear. Did I dream it or is their a move to print the reg no on the container so that it can be traced back when the driver chucks his litter!
  21. Excellent news the speed some drivers travel is frightening. Hope they spend some time in Kingstone!!!
  22. It is and it gives hope that people work so hard to bring on these youngsters and develop talents probably hidden. I have to admit I did not even know this place existed. Excellent work
  23. Excellent work well done the people behind this it is stunning. Hope farmers and supermarket/shop workers also had a mention. I am sure they are there amongst all the others mentioned who are working so hard to keep the country going in these times.
