I CONCUR with other correspondents regarding the state of Hereford.

Hereford city is a tip: cigarette ends, packets, foil, dog mess where owners don’t clear up. The slogan ‘Herefordshire Here You Can’ is very appropriate.


You Can see rubbish strewn all along the road verges.

You Can see fly tipping in many farm gateways, and now you have to book slots at the tip to dispose of somebody else’s rubbish. Fines are not high enough, they should be £5,000.

Travelling around the county You Can see ruts and potholes, Hereford must have the worst roads nationally. Travelling widely in Wales and Scotland, including the Outer Hebrides, single track roads with passing places are in better condition than our main roads. Why would anyone want to visit Herefordshire?
