Re: Beckwiths vandalism

Our daughter sent us a copy of this vandalism even though she is not living in Hertford any more but a bit of her still does. I really don't understand how or why people do this. It is as much an icon as the view from Folly Bridge or Lussmans Egyptian style exterior decor. I saw Cllr Ruffles this mo...

Re: Waitrose at Van Hages

One could also ask what has happened to the Wrenbridge planning application for the regeneration of Bircherley Green. According to their Twitter account and I quote: 'We will be submitting a planning application on the Bircheley Green Shopping Centre in Hertford. A mix of retail, A3, hotel and resid...

Re: Colin Sykes.

Colin's old premises do not fall within Bircherley Green so Clive may not have any details. Always worth asking Clive as he is a man mountain of information. If not in office next to New Look he may have moved or be moving to new office in car park on level A. I think he has posted his emergency num...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment

I posted the link to Wrenbridge's new drawings because I still trawl the internet with odd search strings to find if there is anything going on that no one has told me about. The source code for the page indicates that the drawings were loaded on or about June/July 2015. The strange thing is Wrenbri...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment

First time I've seen these artists impressions from Wrenbridge's own site on what is being planned for Bircherley Green. They are of a higher definition and quality than has previously been let loose on the residents of Hertford. http://wrenbridge.co.uk/project/bircherley-green/ You will note how th...

Re: "Calamity Jane" - Hertford Theatre 13-17 October

Best wishes for this DQ.

One of my favourite shows as Stage Manager. The cast tried to sabotage my set by selling sherry in the Golden Garter but my ASM put a stop to that by putting harmless colouring in the bottles and labelling it sarsparilla.

Re: Missing cats - Hertford East

Something odd happens to our cat as well. He disappears for days or weeks on end but comes back groomed and fat. Someone is obviously feeding him and looking after him. Probably he books into a hotel and doesn't pay his bill which is why he ends up back with us. Then he stays for a week or two, eats...

Re: Waitrose at Van Hages

The agenda for the Development Management Committee meeting for tonight states that the application has been withdrawn. If it had remained, been discussed and rejected then Van Hages could have appealed. By withdrawing this application it is now closed but ... there is nothing to stop Van Hages comi...
