Re: Three cheers for Mark Prisk

From a personal point of view Mark Prisk wrote a letter of recommendation for Hidden Hertford which was almost essential to gain funding from National Lottery. I think this chunk of the overall total went towards the river cruises, new leaflets for the Museum and support for Farmers Market at the Ho...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

Just looked at the agenda for the DMC meeting on 19th July and the Bircherley Green Shopping Centre Redevelopment application is not listed. I suppose there is still time for this to be added but it looks like it has been delayed. Extra documents continue to be added from consultees so it may be tha...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

You've got to hand it to the Mercury for up to minute news reporting; even possibly a scoop. :lol: They have just put a report on the internet that Waitrose will be closing at 4.00pm on 12 September. I said this on this board on 29 June. Where have they been? You see this worries me. Does anyone rea...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

Well thankfully rejections from the public don't generally hold much weight do they? When is the decision made? Yes and no. The public can influence decisions if based upon valid research, consultation and within planning guidelines and not based on vexatious objections solely because they do not w...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

Lots of rejections to plans on the east Herts site to redevelopment proposals , i must admit it puzzles me. It seems locals and those of neighbouring towns and villages are happy with charity shops , pound stretchers , boarded up premises and an uninspiring riverfront Well, nothing surprises me any...

Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

Can only agree with Steve. Not a lot of people know this but I started my professional career with London's No.2 advertising agency back in the mid 1960s. I was a media buyer mostly TV but owing to a big overhaul all media was included for each buyer so I spent as much time with newspapers and magaz...

Re: Aldi

newgirl - to quote from the Aldi booklet: Which? has already decided to relocate, as the site is no longer suitable for them, due to the significant flood risk and underutilised space .

Re: Aldi

Well the Mercury have done a survey and they think its a good idea. Sort of. Although their survey does appear to be evenly split but what are headlines for anyway. http://www.hertfordshiremercury.co.uk/hertford-residents-back-proposals-to-build-an-aldi-in-the-town/story-30374923-detail/story.html B...

Re: Parking Charges 2017-18

I had second thoughts about posting on this question of parking fees so here is the sanitised version. There is no opposition to the party in power; either from within or from other parties, vocal, written or otherwise. Funding was withdrawn from all the Town Centre Management Boards accross the Dis...

Re: Classic Bus Day

Should have posted this much earlier but tomorrow June 4 is Classic Bus Day. We moved Fun Day forward to incorporate this in the events. Vintage buses on old routes that haven't seen a bus for years. Excellent photo opportunity and for grandads to explain to younger members of the family what it was...
