Letter from Barry Cobbett questions installation of brass inlaid stone paving in Hereford's High Town
12:12pm Thursday 6th March 2014
IT was with some degree of sadness when I read that Hereford City Council intends replacing the areas of brass inlaid stone paving with some uninteresting plain slabs, thus removing for good an important reference to the history of our city. The original idea was a brilliant concept and a simple but exciting addition to the hard landscaping of High Town. Unfortunately, the work was badly designed and installed without proper consideration being given to the task.

THE amount of rubbish being deposited on some of our roads is simply appalling. In my own part of Herefordshire there are drink cans, food wrappers, bottles and other items either dropped at the side of the road (or in my garden!) or thrown from passing cars. They act as a disfigurement to an otherwise very attractive county.

I HAVE read the ongoing press reports and letters about the Greenway Footpath and Cycle Path. Because of confused and conflicting information, I missed the opening and the local activities around the Greenway Bridge crossing the river. I would have been glad to take part in celebrating what, I believe, is a great asset. I took my daughter and grandson to Bartonsham on New Year's Day to see for myself. We really enjoyed the view and walking over the bridge, though I am not sure about car parking.
Readers' Times January 23, 2014: hospital care was excellent, more concern over roads, a new supermarket would have been good for Leominster, hot air over energy (EfW) plan for Hartlebury, and more.

Having read Councillor Philip Price's comments on the front of the Hereford Times, December 19, and consulted with a number of independent retailers, I felt compelled to write to him urgently with a suggestion that I feel would help alleviate the imminent traffic problems and also greatly help the independents in the historic heart of the City.

IF the financial situation facing local government demands that our fire services must be cut back – and I am not at all convinced that taxpayers will agree with that proposal – it would be nice to see the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority lead the way by pruning some, if not all of its 25 members, who annually claim in excess of £50,000 in various expenses.

Laying stone paving of this type, together with the inlays, should be no problem provided a sound substrate was correctly installed to take the designed load, and the slabs were bedded soundly using the right medium. − Barry CobbettMissing and damaged letters on the paving stones in Hereford’s High Town »
