Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

I feel that staff who are on low wages (minimum wage) who are expected to work long hours in our bars / restaurants and Hertford Theatre/ entertainment establishments should get some sort of discount for parking in our carparks and all of them changed to pay on exit.

Re: Waitrose rumour

DQ's father informs that the move is a "done deal" as he was in conversation with a person doing the dealing and moving! So guess we need to know what will replace Waitrose and keep the town centre from going to a ghost town.. hmmmmmmm
