Important Notice - Waste Paper - Please Help the Samaritans!

The Samaritans were instrumental in setting up the first waste paper recycling facility in Ross, and until recently had a collection skip in the car park at Safeway, which is now Morrisons.

This notice is to advise that The Samaritan Waste Paper Skip has now been relocated to the Red Meadow Car Park near the swimming pool, with easy access and parking. The entire proceeds from this recycling project go towards funding the local Samaritan Centre in Hereford.

The Hereford Samaritan centre receives in the region of 300 calls per week from local people facing a crisis, and your ongoing support by taking your newspapers and magazines to the skip, located in the swimming pool car park will be greatly appreciated.

The telephone number for anybody facing a crisis is 01432 269000 (24 hours).
