  3. A US surgical equipment manufacturer is expanding its UK headquarters in Hereford following a 25 per cent increase in UK sales. LeMaitre Vascular took new offices at Stirling House in Centenary Park, just 18 months ago and is now expanding in response to growing demand for its specialist products. The offices, developed by Priority Space in partnership with the Hunt Group and Herefordshire County Council, are part of Skylon Park, Hereford Enterprise Zone. LeMaitre Vascular supplies devices for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease to surgeons worldwide. It originally took up office suites covering 2259 sq. ft. The additional 1338 sq. ft will enable the team to manage and distribute more stock to hospitals across the UK as Lemaitre increase their product range. Lemaitre have recently employed a new warehouse operative as part of the expansion. Lemaitre’s Director of Northern Europe Helen Goulding said: “Having a base in the UK has enabled us to deliver a much better level of service to our customers in the UK and Ireland. As a leading global provider of devices for peripheral vascular disease (PVD) we have seen the necessity for our products increase in line with the rise of diabetes and open vascular surgery. “We occupy a suite of offices and warehouse together with a conference facility at Stirling House from where we are able to train surgeons virtually and hands on, however less so in these unprecedented times. Conveniently located close to distribution networks, Stirling House has proven to be an exceptional base where we can meet demands as the business continues to grow.” Adam Richardson, co-director at Priority Space, said: “It’s great to see LeMaitre Vascular expanding its UK headquarters in Hereford so soon after moving into Stirling House. We wish them continued success.”Andrew Manning Cox, chair of the Hereford’s Enterprise Zone, said: Stirling House is a high spec 14,708 sq ft office development with suites of different sizes available to buy or let. It is part of the first phase of Centenary Park, located in Skylon Park, a major development of speculative office, industrial and warehouse units in the Government-backed Hereford Enterprise Zone. LeMaitre Vascular’s neighbours in Stirling House include the SureCare Group and the Hereford Times. Priority Space is committed to developing sites across the UK to create high-quality and sustainable workplaces which stimulate regeneration and economic growth.
  4. Construction is now complete on the £9 million state-of-the art Cyber Quarter – Midlands Centre for Cyber Security with the building officially handed over by contractor, Speller Metcalfe. When the new centre officially opens in spring 2021 on Skylon Park, Hereford Enterprise Zone, Herefordshire will be home to the UK’s leading centre of excellence in cyber security, supporting innovation and industry in this growing sector. The centre is a joint venture between the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council and part-funded by the Government’s Local Growth Fund, via the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Despite work being temporarily halted on the site due to pandemic lockdown restrictions in March, Speller Metcalfe carried out a phased return with a reduced workforce, in line with revised protocols and protective measures enabling progress. The new building, designed by Birmingham based Associated Architects, has generated 80% spend locally within 30 miles of the project which includes subcontractors Folbig Fabrications, Hereford Asbestos Services, Herefordshire Council Building Control and Quickskip, based close to the site at Rotherwas.Councillor David Hitchiner, Leader of Herefordshire Council, said: Mandy Thorn is Chair of the Marches LEP, which invested £2.82m of Local Growth Funding into the project. She said: Zone Chairman, Andrew Manning Cox, said: Professor Geoff Layer, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Wolverhampton, said: Adrian Speller, Technical Director of constructor Speller Metcalfe, said: Warren Jukes, Director at Associated Architects, said: Cyber Quarter – Midlands Centre for Cyber Security will offer a package of tailored security testing, training, Research & Development and sector expertise to businesses and investors. Supported by the university’s Wolverhampton Cyber Research Institute (WCRI), the centre will also be home to 16 cyber SMEs and well as offering product testing and certification, CPD and short courses and cyber conferences like the recent Cyber Fringe Festival attracting experts from across the globe. The 2,000 square metre building will provide significant resources for research and development across three cyber laboratories, advanced training facilities as part of the University’s Wolverhampton Cyber Research Institute and additional business space for up to 16 cyber companies. The centre, which secured £2.82m of funding via the Marches LEP’s Growth Deal with Government in 2017, is part of the new Cyber Quarter at Skylon Park, already home to numerous defence and security sector businesses. The new centre incorporates a full height glass atrium to provide a dual break-out space and function hall, alongside the main three storey building that houses business suites, innovation rooms, IT workshops and a ‘Cyber Range’ – a cutting edge facility that will defend against the global rise of hacking. Anyone interested in courses offered or businesses looking for incubation space can find out more about the Cyber Quarter – Midlands Centre for Cyber Security on the website.

  6. Hereford recycling centre closed after car hits pedestrian Hereford's recycling centre has been closed today (July 21) after emergency services were called to the site this morning following reports of a collision between a car and a pedestrian. Emergency services are currently at the scene, please avoid this area if possible.
  7. Herefordshire Council are advising that it is already taking 2 hours to access the household recycling site, please consider whether your journey is essential. Do not visit unless it is essential Essential means you must only visit if waste or recycling cannot be stored at home safely or disposed of safely by other means. By this we mean the waste cannot be stored without causing risk of injury, health or harm. There is no other reason the journey will be considered a legitimate purpose for travel. If you can temporarily store your waste or recycling in a way that does not pose a risk to yours or others safety or human health, then you must do so. Do not visit the site if you or a member of your household are unwell, as you should be following the Government guidance on self-isolation. This means you should not visit if you are: Extremely vulnerable and are remaining at home for shielding purposes Symptomatic with coronavirus (COVID-19) In a 14-day household isolation The site is now open 8.00am to 6.00pm and 7 days per week.
  8. Hereford and Leominster household recycling centres reopen 9 May Restrictions will remain in place to ensure safety of public and staff Herefordshire Council will reopen Hereford and Leominster Household Recycling Centres for essential use only from Saturday 9 May. They will be open from 8.00am to 6.00pm every day The other Household Recycling Centres in Kington, Bromyard, Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye will remain closed for the time being, until available staffing resource will permit these sites to reopen as well. Government guidance will be followed to ensure our sites can safely operate, and strict social distancing measures will be in place to protect both the public and staff. Only limited numbers of vehicles will be permitted entry at any time so long queues and delays are likely. The government’s view is that household recycling centres play a critical role in the local management of waste, so making a journey to one is considered a “reasonable excuse” if a resident has difficulty safely storing unavoidable waste. Journeys to HWRCs must only be undertaken if your waste or recycling cannot be stored at home without causing risk of injury, health or harm, and cannot be disposed of safely by other means. If you can temporarily store your waste or recycling in a way that does not pose a risk to yours or others safety or human health, then you must do so. Social distancing measures mean staff cannot provide assistance, so please make sure you are able to unload your waste unaided. If you are able, take additional measures to protect yourself and others such as using gloves and have sanitary wipes to use in your vehicle. Anyone who is self-isolating or has Covid-19 symptoms must not visit a household recycling centre.Councillor Gemma Davies, Cabinet Member for Commissioning, Procurement and Assets, said: The council’s waste collection service will continue to prioritise the collection of general rubbish and recycling. You can manage your garden waste in the following ways: * Cut and Drop - Don’t collect grass cuttings unless you intend to use them for home composting, simply cut the grass without the collector on. * Create a compost heap - No matter the size of your garden you should have space for a heap. If not use a low cost home composter to keep the garden tidy. * Create a wildlife habitat or bug hotel with thick branches and wood. * Use a licensed garden waste disposal service. * Do not burn your garden waste, as the smoke can aggravate respiratory difficulties of those suffering from Coronavirus and other illnesses. Herefordshire Council also continues to offer a bulky item collection service. Please call 01432 260051 to make a booking. For more information please visit www.herefordshire.gov.uk/recyclecentres
  9. No doubt many of you know of him, with many a story to share. Known by many for trading as City Spares 'scrapyard' down Watery Lane. It has came to my attention tonight, that he has passed away. No further information at present. Sympathy with his family and friends at this tough time.
  10. Shell store development to create a business incubation and innovation centre. Former munitions site to be transformed into a flagship business incubation and innovation centre Work is to begin on a £7.3m redevelopment of Hereford’s Shell Store in January, transforming the historic building into a flagship business incubation and innovation centre. The redevelopment of the derelict building on Skylon Park, at Rotherwas, will create more than 2,000 sq metres of employment space, with room for new and growing businesses to set up and expand alongside facilities for development and innovation, presently earmarked for the new NMiTE University. This week saw the final funding agreements put into place to support the project at the former munitions site on the Hereford Enterprise Zone. The project is being funded via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Herefordshire Council and a loan from the Marches LEP’s Marches Investment Fund. The Shell Store, which is not a listed building, was built in the First World War and used again as an ordnance site during the Second World War. The project will see commercial space created within the existing building footprint, retaining much of the original factory including its steel roof structure. The incubation centre will provide high quality accommodation and support services to new or young enterprises as well as an application and development centre for the new Herefordshires university, NMiTE. This will create an interface between the new university and businesses as well as providing space for students to develop their practical projects. Chairman of the Hereford Enterprise Zone, Andrew Manning Cox, said the redevelopment is a major milestone for Skylon Park. The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership is providing a £2.498m interest free loan for the work with £2m being contributed by the ERDF and Herefordshire Council is investing the balance. Graham Wynn, chairman of the Marches LEP, said the project demonstrated the LEP’s commitment to delivering modern, sustainable jobs to the region and helping build a thriving economy. Councillor Harry Bramer, Herefordshire Council Cabinet Member for Contracts and Assets, said: The centre is due to be completed in early 2020 and initial preparatory work has already begun and will continue over the coming weeks.

No contact has be made with either NICK HAMES or his missus - both co-owners. No further information.
