May and opening time the following morning, patio tables
and chairs, worth approximately £300 were stolen
from outside the Conservatory Restaurant at the Hope &
Anchor public house.
Pictured below is the one remaining table and two chairs
from the set. The chairs taken were exactly the same as

rather than two places, so are double the length of the
one in the photograph.
information regarding the theft would be appreciated.

Above: as part of their citizenship work, all students from
years seven to thirteen at John Kyrle High School had the
opportunity to take part in the school's mock election on
Thursday, 5th May. Assemblies and 'tutor' periods gave the
opportunity for pupils to discuss the political parties
and issues in Herefordshire. Two polling stations in the
school were set up to register voters and issue ballot papers.
The exercise raised lots of lively discussions between students
about politics and the political process. And the result......

anybody tell me where to get some of whatever Joe is drinking
- or Jane for that matter?
my name is Joe, and I work in a United States famous outdoor
outfitter store called REI ( Recreational Equipment Incorporated)
and I am 60 years old, … no small feat, that … just you
try living to 60! Anyway, I had a completely different
upbringing than you, I think … I lived in the North Cascades,
in a small town called Twisp, in the state of Washington.
some reason I was attracted to your web site … just because
it sounded full of life … And hell if I know if that sounds
like some fag commie thing, but I am just a country person.
Old, I guess, and probably had too much wine, or otherwise
you would never read this … Well, I was cold after fishing
for Kokanee (land locked salmon, and they are delicious!
My Japanese wife knows how to cook … butterfly the meat
(take out the spinal cord) and fry on the meat side for
30 seconds, then turn on the skin side, and fry in the
melted butter for 8 minutes,, … I could get all of Iraq
to surrender to that fish.

I am not sure who you are (but I have been to Ross-On-Wye
once and know there is a Book Fair there every year.
Just how did you and your little dog show up on the
"image search" I just did on hydrogen bombs? All I can
say is it was nice to see you - a normal, healthy happy
HUMAN BEING in the midst of all this HELL on Earth.
I don't know why I feel compelled to "look up" these
things - it's been since the invasion of Iraq and me
becoming sort of "political" and joining "Stop The War"
and going on all the marches, etc and learning more
and more about the Arms Trade (and all the billions
they make dealing in death) and all kinds of horrible
I look up about these things and now I [who used to
be a kind of "Ken Clarke Tory Wet" (and I still like
him!)] write letters to George Galloway newly elected
"Respect" MP hoping that he will continue his "Stop
The War" message now that he is back in The House Of
Commons. And people don't like to hear me going on about
all these things - they wish I and the other "lefties"
(as I'm now considered to be) would just shut up and
go away & just do our shopping and other "normal things"
and it's not easy ...so why do I do it - well, seeing
your image just now reminded me - I do it for people
like you! I want you to live happy, loving and healthy
lives - I don't want you to even know about the horrors
of "The War Industry." I just want to keep you and the
rest of England all safe and happy!
thought I'd let you know!!
know how the dog image came up in your search, Jane.
Photos of dogs and my childhood scientific experiments
with sodium chlorate being mentioned on two different
pages of the same web site. My favourite search for
bringing up Wyenot.com on Google however - an actual
'Googlewhack' no less is, 'pomicultural truffles'.
