Surface Dressing Road works

Balfour Beatty, on behalf of Herefordshire Council,  are surface dressing 126 stretches of road (a total of 65 miles/106km) across the county. The work will take place over the six weeks from 21 May to end of June 2019.

Surface dressing is a coating of bitumen and stone that seals the road surface, improves its texture and extends its life.  Any defects, such as pot holes, are fixed first. It’s a three-step process that is quicker than other road maintenance techniques, causing less disruption for residents and road users

They have published a map of sites, information about the process and information for businesses and residents on Herefordshire Council’s website at: https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/info/200196/roads/723/herefordshire_road_investment/4

There is also a short video on our Twitter channel: https://twitter.com/HfdsStreets/status/1130776481490264064

Subject to the extent of works, a road closure will normally come into operation from 09.00 hours until 17.00 hours each day but in most cases, the work will be completed far sooner resulting in the road re-opening earlier, anything from a few hours to half a day sooner.

Volunteer today, with Onside

Volunteer today!

Onside a local charity which works across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, is looking for people to take on the role of a Relevant Persons Representative (RPR).

As an RPR the volunteer would be visiting a person just once every 6-8 weeks for no more than 1 hour. Volunteering would be local to where the volunteer lives.  Volunteers as an RPR are safeguarding the rights of vulnerable people who don’t have the mental capacity to consent to care or treatment.

Onside’s Volunteer Manager, Claire Watkins, said   “Our volunteers give their time, their passion and enthusiasm, this role is very worthwhile and rewarding.”

Volunteers are ordinary people of all ages and backgrounds they just need to be good listeners and have some time to give.  We also have further opportunities with other advocacy projects.

 If you can picture yourself in the role of an Onside volunteer please call Claire Watkins – Volunteer Manager on 01905 27525 or email  claire.watkins@onside-advocacy.org.uk to find out more. This type of volunteering is flexible to fit with your life and circumstances. Free training (throughout the year) is provided and all expenses paid.

Rural crime question & answer session by the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner.

Have Your Say on Rural Crime – Live on Monday 24th June.

Would you like to see more police in rural areas? What crime issues are important to you? What would make your community safer?
Rural Crime will be the focus of a live question and answer session hosted by the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner.
The meeting will be streamed live on the PCC’s facebook page (@WestMerciaPCC), from 7pm on Monday 24th June 2019. The public are invited to ask the questions which the Commissioner and his Deputy Tracey Onslow will put to West Mercia Police Chief Constable Anthony Bangham, and Deputy Chief Constable Amanda Blakeman.
The meeting is the third to be broadcast live, and is part of a series of regular meetings, focusing on key priorities raised by communities.
Commissioner John Campion said “Building safer, more secure rural communities is something that, I and the Chief Constable are committed to. I get clear feedback that this priority is shared by our communities.
I’d encourage people to take advantage of this opportunity, to have a voice at the highest level. Any questions you have about rural policing, funding to tackle rural crime or particular crime types affecting you and your communities, can be addressed in the most open and transparent way.”
Questions are invited live during the broadcast, or can be submitted in advance as part of a series of summer roadshows, via a Facebook comment or private message, or via email to getinvolved@westmercia.pnn.police.uk..
