  3. Darren Gibbons is leading the 12 in 12 challenge for St Michael's A growing band of Hospice supporters are gearing up for a busy year after agreeing to complete 12 runs in as many months. The ‘Runathon 12 in 12’ challenge is being led by Darren Gibbons who will attempt a world record at one of the events when he aims to complete the Swansea Half Marathon in record time while blindfolded. He hopes the ‘12 in 12’ idea will raise around £5,000 for St Michael’s Hospice. Darren knows all about the work of St Michael’s as his mother-in-law sadly died at the Hospice a few years ago. ‘I’m really looking forward to the Runathon 12 in 12,’ he said. ‘It’s great that so many people are on board, and I’m grateful and proud of them all. ‘Hopefully it will be a year to remember, and one which sees us raise around £5,000 for St Michael’s Hospice.’ So far, 15 fundraisers have signed up for the 12 in 12 challenge. Those taking part can choose whichever events they would like to complete, but they are all planning to enter the Hospice-led RUN Hereford in May, which features a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K. The team have signed up to a variety of runs including 10k’s, Half Marathons and Marathons, with Darren’s world record attempt taking place in June.

  8. Why are our beautiful Medieval City Walls being left to ruin? I have mentioned this in the recent topic about a number of increased weeds in our city but I do think this justifies a unique topic. Just look at the weeds growing from the top of this section along Gunners Lane. Hereford Voice is highlighting just how bad this has become in an attempt to provoke some action and possible restoration from the Council. Hopefully, we can encourage them to put a maintenance plan in place going forward. The Herefordshire County Council need to look at having the weeds removed and also look at cleaning and repairing any unstable sections of the City Walls. The survival of our Medieval City Walls is very important, this is our heritage and therefore should be protected for future generations to come, after all this site is a scheduled monument protected by law. There was a study of Hereford's City Walls back in September 2011 details here and details about the Area of Archaeological Importance (AAI) can be found here A map of Hereford Area of Archaeological Importance, Hereford city wall conservation management plan documents and archaeology supplementary planning guidance can be found here and here
  9. Some good work being carried out all this week along the Newton Brook in Belmont. The brook has not really been cleaned out in years so it was good to see a JCB making light work of it. This work was paid for by Herefordshire Council and there is now a program for maintenance along this stretch. This work was undertaken following constant pressure to do something from Cllr Tracy Bowes who has been chasing them for months as this is a flood risk. They tried to clear some of the brook near Jubilee field on the last community action day but the silt was above their wellies. They are monitoring the other parts of the brook and this has been included in the tender for work for next year. December, January and February have been highlighted as good times for tree and shrub maintenance and coppicing but there is a plan now which should see additional work carried out throughout the year.

Multi Agency Task Force of Trading Standards, Police, Fire Service and Immigration in action! Tobacco was secreted within very sophisticated and specifically made devices. These pieces of criminal ingenuity were quickly 'deconstructed' by a crew from Hfd Fire Station! Assisted by a specialist trained tobacco sniffer dog, numerous 'stashes' of illicit tobacco were located. “The tobacco was secreted within very sophisticated and specifically made devices operated by hydraulic remote control drawers and lifts,” said PC Duncan Reynolds, from Hereford Harm Reduction unit. In total 1,920 packets of fake and non-duty paid tobacco was seized along with 132 packets of hand rolling tobacco. This equates to approximately 33,000 cigarettes and £15,000 duty evasion. Four people were arrested during the raids for various offences and questioned by enforcement officers from several agencies. One person was identified as being illegally in the UK. The investigation is ongoing as enquiries continue. added Mr Reynolds. “The public are requested to pass any information with regard to the sale of illicit tobacco to either the Police, Trading Standards or Crimestoppers. “This information can be passed anonymously and will help to build the intelligence around this highly organised form of offending.”
