Re: Ware town gridlock

I can't help wondering why they didn't do this work when the bridge was being repaired on the A10 recently? Surely it would have made sense to do both at once to minimize disruption?

Re: British Gas HomeEnergy Capped May 2018

I still find it very confusing around energy prices, especially at the moment when we're in the middle of the season where the energy companies are raising prices. Ultimately, if you've been offered a capped deal before the price goes up it's probably a good deal, but you'd need to compare to some o...

Ware Arts Centre

Went to the Dave Shrimpton exhibition over the weekend, wonderful, really enjoyed the whole event, not only were the photos interesting and extremely high quality but they were really well laid out as well. Well done to everyone involved and really good to see the first "Southern Maltings" show a bi...

Re: District Plan Pre-submission Draft

Thanks for posting that Steve. It's good to see that EHDC have now said exactly how many houses they want to build. It's 1,000 up to 2033 but a further provision for 500 more if the 1,000 are successful (I won't bet any money on it being seen as unsuccessful!) This is a much more sensible number and...

Re: The Green Kingsway Green grocers closing

That's an option if you don't work full time. We were lucky we had the Kingsway Green grocers deliver to us each week so we could still shop even when at work. I now go to Pearces on the A10, much better selection than Kingshill, much better than any of the supermarkets and open on Sat until 5 or 5...

Re: Variation of a Scam

Thanks for the update, I hadn't heard of that one either. Like you, I wouldn't have been taken in, but clearly some are or they wouldn't try it on. As for phone calls from my ISP, I regularly get sales calls from both my ISP and mail service provider. I have also had calls from VM updating me on ser...

Re: Kingshill Firework Field and the District Plan

With so many people using these fields for walking,picnics,jogging,dog walking, flying kites and model airpalnes and of course the annual Firework Display, surely these fields should be retained as a communal assett rather than built on? They could be registered as a community asset under the terms...

Re: Flying over the Bourne today

They're getting very common in the area now, we see them a lot. Majestic birds, lovely to see.
