  2. Actually do we know if Lakeland as a business is in trouble? Yes they are trying to renegotiate their rents etc but that perhaps does not put them in the same bracket as others. Perhaps Mark Ellis who I have as the last named owner of the building could explain the position from his point of view?

  4. There has been a message on there for a few days saying it would be down for maintenance for today
  5. There may be good reasons why planning permission should or should not be granted but does it matter what religion those attending practise? Not to me anyway
  6. I see the Council have awarded a contract for the repair of the Hereford Library/Museum roof - £99K plus £20K As usual the work is to be done through the Council's privatised service company Integral but the work will be carried out by S C Joseph. I am sure it is all above board but just how many Council building contracts do S C Joseph receive? Their bid was £10K below those of the other bidders. Perhaps they know something the others do not.
  7. So Ragwert (who apparently knows it all) does not know if there is a New Look in Hereford and Denise thinks it is in the OLM. Well you could both go along High Street and lo and behold there it is Yes in retailing times are tough but a major part of the problem is the debts the chains build up - it is not that Hereford alone has a problem And why do people seem to take some perverse delight in pointing out that shops restaurants are to close?
  8. You will not need to book as it is outside by the North Porch
  9. "Phil Edwards" Oooops Awaits Glenda's reply with interest!!!!!!
  10. In now way defending the actions of out of control officers what do you mean by this - the planning application approved in September 2016 showed a lift?
  11. Read and weep! http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50050794/Internal%20audit%20report%20re%20project%20management%20of%20the%20joint%20customer%20services%20hub%20Blueschool%20House%20ca.pdf http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50050795/Appendix%20A%20-%20Investigation%20Report.pdf
  12. There will be a shared pedestrian/cycle path on the link road from Aylestone Hill to Edgar Street
  13. Spot on comments. Cyclists have no regard for the Highway Code, the unwritten rules of the road and good manners. After all it is as rare as hen's teeth to see a motorist jump a red light, enter a roundabout with no regard for any cyclist already on it, ignore the "yellow box", park on double yellow lines, park too close to a junction, drive too close to cyclists, force cyclists into the gutter, park across pavements or speeding. Not to mention pedestrians thinking it is quite reasonable to let their children and/or dogs wander across a shared cycleway with out any regard for those cyclists
  14. You will obviously do what you are going to do and it does need a clean up but perhaps you need to consider that it is an Ancient Monument and you do not own it
  15. These are the candidates (no independent) Jennings Catherine Ruth 11 The Pastures, Lower Bullingham, Hereford, HR2 6EU It's Our County (Herefordshire) Morris Scott John 51 Princess Avenue, Hereford, HR1 1HJ Labour Party Price Jamie Owen Richard 7 Priory View, Belmont, Hereford, HR2 7XH Conservative and Unionist Party Tillett Kevin Paul 20 Villa Street, Hunderton, Hereford, HR2 7AU Liberal Democrats
  16. It is sad that all cyclists seem to get the blame for the actions of a minority. But you are right if there was a bit of enforcement there would less problems
  17. Perhaps all her supporters will get together and remove it so as to save the taxpayers
  18. I spoken to someone who went to Cabinet today. Apparently not a lot happened as they just wanted to approve the extra spend, although it was said that due to the identified long term savings they would have gone ahead at the higher cost anyway. The cock up is being assessed by the internal auditors - This is the South West Audit Partnership (which was recommended as the internal auditors by Peter Robinson when he was here and of course which he helped set up when he was in Bristol) Their report will go to the Audit and Governance Committee in September I think. I'm told that a couple of
  19. There is no doubt that the majority of the employees at the ROF during both World Wars were women. But it is also true that a large number of men also worked there - probably those who were too old for active service. Whilst the contribution and sacrifices of women should be applauded and never forgotten we should also be honouring all those who worked in the munitions at Rotherwas.
  20. Sorry Chris but if time after time the Head of the Paid Service is overseeing a management structure that makes poor appointments then Councillors can do something. You will know what it is. Norman and Robinson are just two examples of a long list of poor appointments, but there is also the gravy train of long standing Officers who move around the Council from senior management position to senior management position in the endless restructures, who seem to be somebody's favourite, but may or not be qualified for the job
  21. It has been open for a while - probably the reason for the lack of publicity is that the work on the link road is still on-going and you have to dodge them at the Station end It is a good short cut though
  22. This is more interesting I think http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50048746/Cabinet%20report%20-%20Central%20Hereford%20-%20One%20Public%20Estate.pdf http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/documents/s50048747/Appendix%201%20-%20Hereford%20-%20OPE%20early%20opportunity%20sites.pdf
  23. I do like the way the doubling of the cost of the scheme is referred to in the report as "a number of weaknesses in cost planning for and monitoring of property related capital projects" Bobby you are correct - it will be just swept aside and nobody will have to account for this mess
