Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

Couldn't honestly say that this is about Hertford but latest tweet from Wrenbridge: Wrenbridge ‏@Wrenbridge Dec 2 Hopefully still time for 2 planning applications to go in before Christmas. An offer in today and another on Monday on new projects. I understand that there is still a bit of work to do ...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

But the whole thing might be scuppered anyway, because, it would seem, the luddites on Folly Island prefer the brutal monstrosity that they currently look at to a thriving cafe area I think you may be overrating the influence Folly Island has on planning matters. Like everyone else the residents vi...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

On Wednesday night the developer stated that Premier inns were expected to sign on the dotted line within two weeks subject of course to planning permission being granted. Waitrose was mentioned but only in the sense that they are now not being considered as a tenant, or at all - the hotel will now ...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

I attended the Council/public meeting last evening and I must say that I haven't had such an enjoyable and entertaining evening for years. Better than watching all series of The Apprentice back to back with red wine and bombay mix served by Claudia Schiffer. There are so many issues there is just no...

Re: Supermarket Shoplifting Stats

Not a lot to do with shoplifting and not really about Hertford but in view of your last paragraph this piece from a Leicester Mercury journalist will strike a chord with anyone like Steve and me who have been involved in the town for some years and look for some local reporting. http://www.pressgaze...

Re: The End of Pay & Display

Similar technology as has been installed in Bircherley Green. It works very well as long as drivers can distinguish between an 'O' and a '0' or the letter O and the number 0 which caused a lot of teething troubles - especially when some of them couldn't remember their own license plate number! On th...

Green Dragon Vaults

This link came up via Google News but nice to see some of Hertford's past get a mention, especially to anyone new to the town. http://carolineld.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/ghost-signs-122-hertfords-green-dragon.html Way back when I was taking photos for the Hidden Hertford tour I missed this one. Only r...

Re: Hertfordshire Mercury job losses?

Sadly again DQ. There was a time when the Mercury was a very local paper. They were major sponsors or at least amongst the rest for any or all local events. They sat on the committee of Fun Day and although they never donated a penny they donated at least half a page every week to the event. Adverts...
