The summer has been a busy few months for the HGN team. Amongst our holiday time with family and friends, HGN has some exciting projects underway – including work on the development of an innovative web platform to support parish councils, and input as part of a countywide team to evolve understanding about how Herefordshire might respond to the climate and ecological emergency….

All of which means we are a little slower than usual. So apologies to those of you who have messaged in the past week, or who were looking forward to this week’s Newsletter…. normal service will be resumed soon!

In the meantime – and perhaps using the 5 minutes you might have spent reading our e-news – please make time to respond to the #StrongerHereford survey.

Hereford is one of 100 places invited to be part of a government scheme that will bring up to £25m regeneration money into the city and surrounding area, and the independent Towns Fund board are currently inviting us all to identify major projects that would bring about economic and social improvements.

Please don’t hesitate to submit your own ideas online here.

This is such an important opportunity to describe the thriving, biodiverse, zero carbon, socially fair Hereford we would all like to see.
