  1. Please be safe and vigilant when going out and about on your daily exercise! A small slip down a riverbank or canal can be fatal. Look out for other people when on your travels near water. Hereford Voice is supporting the NFCC Drowning Prevention and Water Safety Week to raise awareness of the risk of accidental drowning and reduce the 263 deaths that occurred in 2018 in the UK.
  2. Traffic Lights Out Trial Hereford. Hereford Voice have been campaigning for years to have some of the traffic lights in Hereford (not pedestrian lights) turned off, as most agree with our motto, 'The Traffic Just Flows' when the lights have been out in the past. It is looking like we may have a trial sometime this summer. This was featured on this evenings ITV News #HerefordVoice
  3. I have created an online petition to turn off the traffic lights at the Asda junction in Hereford (Where the A465 meets the A49) as the traffic flows much better when they are off!! if you agree, please sign the petition below. Click Here To Sign The NEW Petition (Please ALL sign the new petition as the original council petition has since been removed from their website) This will only take you a minute, Do It today!!
  4. I have for a long time campaigned to have the traffic lights on the southern routes into Hereford to be turned off becuase from evidence obtained in various formats it has been proved that the traffic certainly flows better when these traffic lights have been off or out of order. They could certainly been made to operate part-time at off peak times 8pm-7am I have also pondered on how to take some of the pressure from these main roads and after a lot of thought I suggested turning the Great Western Way into a road, then after debates with some other members we came up with an even better idea, use a tram system! Back and forth still allowing room for pedestrains and cyclists. The GWW in Hereford runs right from the top of Redhill/Newton Farm and could go all the way down through Hunderton and over the river bridge past the rugby club and Sainsburys, continuing down parallel with Edgar Street at the back of the Theatre, continuing past Currys and almost to the back of Dunlem opposite the Leisure Centre. I am not 100% sure where the track ends but I will take a walk this weekend, weather permitting and have a look. Campaign For Better Transport Website Mr Albert Heijn from the Left Bank, I beleive once offered some years ago to fully fund such a project but from my undersatnding the HC refused the idea. As most of the traffic, according the the HA is 90% for local trips back and forth surely this is an option worth consdering especially as we already have the old railway line available with some work to bring it up to date of course. Your thoughts on this idea/campaign would be appreciated.
  5. Herefordshire council are in talks with highways agency regarding the turning off of traffic lights at asda island and Newmarket st as part of a trial. Discussions with highways agency could be as early as next month. https://www.herefordtimes.com/news/17851764.council-consider-turning-off-traffic-lights-ease-congestion/
  6. I have just been listening to the live stream from Full Council held yesterday at the Shire Hall in particular, the reactions from various Councillors about the alternative budget proposed by IOC. Live Stream can be found here At around 228 of the live stream Cllr Paul Rone speaks, during his brief response I notice that he says that if turning off the traffic lights is such a good revolutionary idea, then why has nobody else done it? Well actually Paul, quoting you using your own words from yesterdays meeting, "Seek Before You Speak" Turning off traffic lights has been successful in several towns and cities, one that comes to mind is Portishead, check out the video below: Portishead Traffic Lights Furthermore, you suggest that nobody has done this other than Invercargill in New Zealand, you also suggest that this place has a mere population of 7,500 people, well actually you are wrong sir, it is almost as big as Hereford! Education Lesson below: You also say that it would be dangerous for pedestrians?? I am confused as there is no suggestion that any of the pedestrian traffic lights would be turned off at all, they would still be working, if this was given a trail and yes that is all we have ever asked for, a trial. Cllr. Rone also suggest that it would work for maybe 12 hours and then there would be mayhem? Again, we have video evidence much of which you will find on our youtube channel where the traffic lights have been out of order for several days and it is common knowledge that when these lights are out of service and using our words, the 'traffic just flows' in Hereford. To suggest that the members commenting on here are irresponsible keyboard warriors is totally unfair, there has been a lot of research over the past 20 years including that of one of our members Martin Cassini, you can check out his credentials here Martin Cassini on the One Show Finally, you also ask why is nobody else doing this? Because people like you are all too quick to reject these proposals. Well as you can see above other towns and cities are doing this successfully or is your dismissal just down to the fact that this is not your or Cllr Edwards idea? Cllr. Rone and Cllr. Edwards, I am passionate about our city and keen to explore all ideas that may eliminate the terrible daily congestion in Hereford, I just wish others would look and explore some of these ideas.
  7. I have now implemented phase II of our traffic lights campaign and that is in the form of a petition from the very start! [Please note that this is totally separate to our lights out campaign. This petition deals only with the traffic lights at night] We would like both the Highways Agency and Herefordshire Council to allow the traffic lights at the junctions where the A465 meets the A49 (Asda roundabout/junction) and where the A49 meets the A438 Newmarket St (Old Market roundabout/junction) to become part-time signals during non peak times from 7pm-7am with exception to the pedestrian crossings which would still be in operation for the safety of pedestrians. All of these traffic lights are relatively pointless during off peak times and often motorists become frustrated and impatient while being forced to sit at red lights, this can often be at 2am when there are clearly no other vehicles in sight! By signing our petition you are in strong favour of these signals being changed to PART-TIME status from 7pm-7am Please read the petition and you can offer your support by simply signing it. #trafficlightshfd Part-Time Traffic Lights Petition Here
  8. I was out bright and early this morning doing my bit for the community, cleaning more road signs. Before After
  9. Please sign Our Petition to Cllr Barry Durkin in an attempt to persuade him to reconsider and increase the on street parking times. Some streets such as Castle Street are limited to just 30 mins! We need at least 2 hours and by signing this petition you agree and are offering your full support to our local independent traders here in Hereford.
  10. I have heard from several reliable sources that the GP walk-in centre at Asda is to be closed. Please SIGN the petition here Cllr Glenda Powell managed to get over 700 signatures on a petition to prevent it being moved to the A&E department at the hospital back in 2010. (See this topic)
  11. With the General Election now over - there is possibly only two years (2017) before we get a referendum on whether to stay in the EU or get out. Having believed we would have had a change of government, nationally and locally by now, I do not have much confidence that any referendum will be conducted fairly in order that the ruling poitical parties get the result they and the EU want. What are the benefits of being in or out for Hereford and the county? Maybe some information and facts through this topic could help us make a reasoned decision when voting, although I think we will be staying in the EU at any cost. Not for the benefit of the citizens, but for all those entwined in the machinations of the EU political and monetary systems.
  12. The Greyfriars and Eign Gate underpasses are both in desperate need of some TLC. I took these photographs this evening and as you can see, it is very dark here, half the lights are not working. The lights that are 'out of order' are numbers 1 (entrance) 4, 5, 8 and 9 (on the exit). Look how dark the Greyfriars underpass is from Greyfriars end This underpass is in need of some new bright LED lighting throughout and on both entrances including the pathway leading to the actual underpass. I think the council need to provide a safe environment for residents and this feels far from safe as it stands. There is no CCTV coverage here either, this needs addressing sooner rather than later.

    The BBC

    We all pay our licences right? For what, the 100s of channels we have; the five or 6 BBC channels? No just two. That's right I did say 2. BBC1 & BBC2, that's it. The others content are available on the Internet, which does not require a licence. Agreed that some content from 1 or 2 is available but after the programme has aired the show. Some are not available at all. Now the Beeb want to cut the service without listening to Joe Public who pay for it and a few heavyweight MPs are wading in too. Please have a read and sign. Can you also share this petition with your friends. Thankyou. Have a look at this: https://speakout.38degrees.org.uk/campaigns/bbc-people-power?utm_medium=email&utm_source=member&utm_campaign=thankyou_email_campaign_link The BBC might not be perfect - but it belongs to the British people, not the government. So it should be up to us to decide on its future. The government asked the public for their views on the BBC - but now it’s trying to ignore them. It looks like the government doesn’t like what it heard from the public. Can you call on your MP to make sure our views on the BBC are heard? If every MP feels the pressure of hundreds of their local constituents, it’ll be impossible for them to stay silent. Check out the petition here: https://speakout.38degrees.org.uk/campaigns/bbc-people-power?utm_medium=email&utm_source=member&utm_campaign=thankyou_email_campaign_link Thanks, Dilligaf
  14. Keepmoat & Contractors will be digging up the highways around the Oval (shop circle) over the next few days/weeks. This is to install new services to cooperate with the existing ones. This will cause obvious disruptions around that area. Certain areas will be closed off completely during scheduled works. Restricted access in places. Please use alternative routes as necessary. The main disruptions will be the school run as Goodrich grove recieves more thoroughfare, could I ask Drivers using the A465 to be a little more considerate and allow a vehicle or two to exit in front at Goodrich grove? I also know that traffic volume on westholme rd will also increase. Please do keep the Tesco roundabout clear. Thanks. This may also be the time to recampaign to switch off the traffic lights, to elevate the volume.
  15. Cllr Jim Kenyon, county councillor for the Tupsley ward, has helped arrange a litter pick and community day this Sunday, which he hopes will bring community spirit to the area. He said: "The encouraging thing for me is people from across the city want to sort this problem out and reclaim the lines and make it safe to use. "It is a thoroughfare from the south of the city to the north of the city. What we want is to make it a safer route." Cllr Kenyon said the bushes alongside the path are overgrown and this week Herefordshire Council's contractor, Balfour Beatty, is cutting it back over three days. This extra work is funded by the city council and match funded by the county council. Cutting back the bushes will reveal a lot of litter, so this is where the community can step in this Sunday and take part in a litter pick- bags and litter pickers will be provided. Help is also needed to cut back bushes by the exit and entry points to the lines- Cllr Kenyon asked for people to join Colin and to bring any spare loppers or hand saws. He said there will also be an update on the day about my requests for the LED lighting and the CCTV camera, which is due to be installed this month. Community groups are involved including Close House and everyone is welcome to join in. Parking is available at Hereford Rugby Club and there will be free refreshments at the rugby club at 2pm and the chance to talk to police and councillors. Cllr Laura Hall, from the city council, said she grew up in Hunderton and wants people to realise what a nice area it is. Meet at the rugby club at 11am. If you would like any more information contact Hereford Voice or call Cllr Kenyon on 07711 316013 or Cllr Hall on 07860 929863
  16. It has taken over 3 long years but today we have our first result! At long last and after campaigning by Hereford Voice we can now all enjoy hot food until 3am at weekends! And 4.30am on Bank Holiday weekends (except Bank Holiday Monday) I spoke with Tony from the Golden Galleon sometime ago informing him that late night food applications are being relaxed and now was a good time to apply for extended hours, he did just that..
  17. Installation work for the new CCTV on the Hunderton Bridge has begun. A tree to the one side has been removed, I assume to give a better view but a lot more clearing up needs to be done. There are so many overgrown trees and bushes, there is almost a canopy in some parts making it dark during daylight hours.
  18. Well I have been campaigning for a 'relaxation' in the way hot food licenses have been restricted to no later than 1.30am in Hereford for a long time, but today I have been given some really really encouraging news! Fancy a curry after a night out in your local nightclub at 2am? Well now you may be able too... I have had a very interesting conversation with a good friend of mine and a very reliable source this afternoon, who informs me that the previous licensing issues with regard to hot food are being relaxed and that positive changes are a foot. From my understanding, any existing restaurant/pub/club can now apply for a late license and providing they can prove that they will have no impact on CIZ or increase criminal activity because they are staying open later there is a good chance that permission will be granted or rather no objections will come from the police etc.. The applicant may need to apply initially for a Temporary Event Licence in the interim but if after a period of say a few months there is no significant increase in crime, there should be no real reason for the council or police to challenge their application. I have never understood why some of these food establishments have been prevented from still offering a home delivery service after 1.30 but that's by the by now. So if you or anyone you knows has a take away, restaurant, pub or club get them to apply for a late licence if they so desire and lets see whats happens. It would be interesting to see what happens if McDonalds in town re-apply now.
  19. I have been asked by several people if I would create a petition about the lack of grass/verge cutting in the County due to severe cut backs in Herefordshire Councils budget. #cutgrasshfd You Can Sign The Petition HERE
  20. As a daily user of Haywood Lane, I have been concenced for sometime at the lack of warning signs about Ducks and Swans crossing the road between the Belmont Pools, So I was delighted to here that some New signs had been installed... Please forgive me for complaining but they are useless in their current position! This is the view travelling from the Callow towards Belmont, I am now driving at a legal spped of 40mph and less than 20 metres from where the pools are...Can you see the sign yet? Ok, now lets get really close and move my position over to the opposite lane and yippee!! now you can see the sign Too late they are all dead !! First of all, you DO NOT see these signs until you are on top of them (so can someone please explain how do these serve as a good warning in order to slow drivers down?) and secondly they are far far too close to the pools and where these animals cross the road. Driving at the legal speed limit, stopping distance at 40mph is 30 metres (120ft) which makes these signs USELESS as they are much much closer than that and I am assuming that drivers are within the speed limit which more often than not they are not! Why are these simple mathamatics not put into practice prior to any insallation?
  21. After two years of asking for yellow boxes at Belmont Tesco, following on from Colin's original suggestion I met on site with Amey last November, I was advised we could not have yellow boxes without traffic signals, I ask for an alternative and we compromised on 'keep clear signs' at the entrance to Northolme Rd, Abbotsmead Rd and Southolme Rd. I am please to advise that these will be put in on 20th March weather permitting.
  22. I initially suggested this back in May 2008!! not heard anything more since... Here was my original post on another belmont forum;
  23. Hereford Voice is local independent website community run by volunteers for discussions and news related to Herefordshire. | News | Campaigns | Forums | Events | Photo Groups | Competitions | Community Projects | Tourism | Established in March 2007 we originally started out as Belmont Voice using our slogan ‘having your say!’ We wanted to give local people their own ‘Voice’ hence the names ‘Belmont Voice’ and now ‘Hereford Voice’ Our main website forums were initially set up as a vehicle for the local people living in Belmont to be able to communicate with each other and with the local parish councillors about matters within the parish, the website soon attracted many people from all over Herefordshire and after many requests to extend the site to cover Herefordshire in general, we expanded the website and changed the name to Hereford Voice, this was back in 2010.
