  1. Mayor of Hereford, Cllr Paul Stevens, and Cllr Kath Hey visited the Three Elms Ukraine Donation Centre on 30th March, meeting Olga Tverdokhlib, who is coordinating much of the aid and volunteer effort in Hereford to support Ukrainian refugees. Olga Tverdokhlib, Hereford Mayor Cllr Paul Stevens and Cllr Kath Hey Herefordshire has shown a tremendous amount of support for Ukraine’s people following the Russian attacks. Olga has spearheaded this monumental effort, raising money and receiving donations, as well as seeing to the delivery of these supplies, setting up a Facebook page, and promoting the cause. It’s inspiring to see such dedicated determination in the face of such devastating events. Many tonnes of support aid recently left by the lorry load to Ukraine, and a video can be viewed on the ‘Hereford Help for Ukraine’ Facebook page. The Centre still urgently needs donations, including baby food, medication, sleeping bags, baby nappies, and long life foods. Visit their Facebook pagefor a full list of wanted items – These can be dropped off at Unit 37, 3Elms Trading Estate, Hereford. HR4 9PU, Monday to Friday between 9am and 7pm and Saturday to Sunday between 9am and 5pm. The Tourist Information Centre in Hereford Town Hall is also selling small items in support of Ukraine, provided by the Centre. These include ribbons, headbands, knitted hearts and more. Sales go directly to Ukrainian support. You can also donate here if you wish to support Ukrainian refugees: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/hereford-citycouncil
  2. Hereford Voice asked Herefordshire Council for a breakdown on what car parking charges are used to pay for and got this helpful infographic sent to us. They told us that car parking charges are primarily used to control limited space in the City and towns to keep the churn rate high in the City and town centres, making sure there is availability for those that want to drive in to the centre – quick stop in Broad Street to go to the bank or quick stop in King Street to pick up from the King Street Kitchen - and that they use lower tariffs to encourage longer stay/commuters to use car parks on the edges of the City or the market town centres. They also use the valuable income from car parking (quite a lot from penalty notices too) to subsidise transport related Council services, particularly those, like school transport, that has suffered as a result of severe government cuts to local authorities like Herefordshire (one grant alone, the Revenue Support Grant has been cut from over £62 million in 2010 to £600k in 2021 – and yes, both our MPs voted for many cuts over the last decade. Jesse Norman - https://hfd.news/bzn Bill Wiggin - https://hfd.news/k69 🔹Do you object to paying a premium to park in the City or town centres? 🔹Do you prefer to park further out and spend longer in town? 🔹How does a Council manage limited spaces in the centres? Some commentators think free parking is the panacea that will revitalise High Street trading – do you think so too or is that too simplistic (and perhaps a deliberately provocative view)? Cwmbran is often cited as an example of a town that offers free parking. Aside from the fact that the parking is free because of a very large private shopping centre that allows unrestricted parking on its 3000-space carpark, is Cwmbran more attractive and prosperous than our very own local retail and historic cores? The parking team in Herefordshire Council have confirmed Christmas late night shopping and free Saturdays are still offered in the run up to Christmas and the City and Town Councils choose which days or half days suit them best. An emotive subject and one that presses many of our buttons. So is it time to stop complaining about paying less than many people spend on coffee in a day, or should we have free parking in Hereford and the surrounding market towns and the inevitable reduced public services that would follow?
  3. Traffic & Travel | Delays again on the A465 Belmont Road due to motorists entering and leaving the McDonalds drive-thru in both directions. We witnessed several near misses and people sounding their car horns in the last 20 mins, this is potentially an accident just waiting to happen ! #herefordvoice #herefordnews #hereford
  4. A Herefordshire village are to receive funding from the PCC to help them tackle the issue of speeding. Lyonshall Parish Council highlighted their concerns about speeding through their village in a recent online engagement event hosted by Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion and, after speaking with him directly, the council applied to his dedicated road safety fund. Consequently, the council will receive £2,675 from the fund for a new speed indicator device that will operate in the village of Lyonshall, with the area identified by the local council as a speeding hotspot. The new device will provide a visible speed deterrent to motorists, as well as providing greater reassurance and an increased feeling of safety to residents.Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said: Local councillor Rod Bevan said: #herefordnews
  5. Cabinet approves first steps in Council building it's own Council houses which it will retain ownership of, outside the householder right to buy mechanism, and which will provided quality affordable houses that are affordable to own or rent and affordable to run, being built to the very best passive energy standards. This welcome move gives the first time buyers, renters and those trying to get onto the property ladder a real opportunity to do that in the county. The Council will have an income and an asset and be a responsible and fair landlord, developer.
  6. Herefordshire Lieutenancy have reported that today marks the retirement of The Dowager Countess of Darnley from office after 12 years of representing Her Majesty The Queen as the Lord-Lieutenant of Herefordshire. Due to the pandemic the planned farewell service was unable to take place so joined by immediate family and the Deputy Lieutenants that have served under Lady Darnley’s leadership, a small private farewell service took place at Hereford Cathedral. Lady Darnley became Lord-Lieutenant on 24th October 2008 and during office has been pivotal in understanding the needs of the county residents, businesses and voluntary organisations. Her dedication and support to the county and most importantly the people who live and work in Herefordshire has been second to none. On behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, Lady Darnley has presented over 25 British Empire Medals, 16 Queen’s Awards for Voluntary Service and 7 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. She has ensured a strong relationship with the local military and cadets and has welcomed 38 Royal Visits, one of which was to welcome The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh to Hereford as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tour in 2012. I’m sure you will all join us in thanking Lady Darnley for her dedication and service to the county and wish her a wonderful and well deserved retirement.
