Re: Local News Pilot

Definitely worth a try. Can only be better than the paradoxically turgid, pedestrian but sometimes infantile attempts of the current failing organ. Will Ruffles be on the editorial board? - no-one knows more about Hertford than he does. Weekly sporting contributions from HFC, HRFC, HCC, the Hockey C...

Re: Community Charge 2018/19

I see that “Police Officers and Staff” get an increase of 3%. “PCC Commissioning” (whatever that is) gets an increase of 30%. We’re paying this buffoon an extra £1,000,000 for what exactly? :o

Re: North & East Herts Waste Consultation Survey

Some consistency in what is collected with what and when would be more "encouraging" than giving me two more bins to accommodate and keep clean (even if they are to be collected weekly). I want to recycle but my I am frustrated by the lack of a consistent process across local authorities and, over t...

Re: Best Indian Restaurant

Would agree with the comments so far ref Ginger. Haven't been to Shahenshah for ages as previously disappointed but things can change. Tikka Cottage was similarly on our "off" list but recently appeared on Just Eat so tried it last weekend and had an excellent tasty (if a little sweet) experience. I...

Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

As I have just told HM via their fb page regarding the "post apocalyptic litter" article and their inept response to criticism of it: "Hertfordshire Mercury your reply to your readership's concern over this sensationalist, negative (Daily Fail style) reporting acutely demonstrates your utter contemp...
