Re: Todays St. Georges day celebrations

A very enjoyable event - the sort of thing that contributes to Hertford being a great town to live in. I'm not sure what is behind the lack of promotion for such events though - maybe it's not necessary, maybe no funding, but I guess there's a thread on this elsewhere as it's not the first time.

Yes, would be good for that but in a bigger garden than ours, or indeed in an allotment.

Glass/secondary glazing unit disposal

Does anyone have any ideas of who might safely and responsibly collect and dispose of large glass items? We have 3 sash window sized secondary glazing units which we need to dispose of. The council does not dispose of glass, and we have (unsuccessfully) tried freecycle. Thank you!

Re: Chinese in hertford - Peking house?

Since Wok-U-Like became takeaway only, I'm pretty sure Peking House is the only Chinese restaurant in Hertford so de facto none better. However, they are very, very good in my humble estimation. I don't believe they have an online presence.
