The annual tidy up day has been fixed for Saturday 4th May 9am until 12pm on Abbey Terrace.  The Town Council hope as many people as possible will turn up on the day to help. Please wear sturdy footwear and suitable clothing and bring a spade, broom, hoe and help spruce up the town before lots of visitors arrive.  Come along for as long as you can spare.

Join the Race for Life


If you fancy a trip to Hereford, get off to a great start by making a date to join Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life. 

This year, for the first time, Cancer Research UK is inviting everyone in the area – women, men and children – to join the Race for Life. There are events for people of all ages and abilities taking place at Halo Leisure centre, 2nd June.    

Kimberley Degville, Cancer Research UK’s Hereford Event Manager, said: “Our Race for Life events are fun, colourful, emotional and uplifting. They help people with cancer by raising money for research, including clinical trials which give patients in Hereford access to the latest treatments.

“You don’t have to be sporty to take part.  You don’t need to train or compete against anyone else.  All you need to do is go to the Race for Life website, pick an event, sign up and then have fun raising money in whatever way you like.”

She added: “Our Race for Life events have been women-only since they started, over 25 years ago.  But we now feel the time is right to open them up so that everyone – women, men and children – has the chance to participate together. 

Thanks to everyone who raises money, Cancer Research UK can fund research to fight 200 types of cancer. The good news is more people are surviving the disease than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress.
