Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

I've been on the new train from Moorgate to Gordon Hill this week - they run through the day off-peak. More seats and more room for standing, so in theory, there should be a little less "can you move down please" once they've launched.

Re: Where Did everybody go??

OK, but take the post office closing for example, the blog would go in to the reasons why, more in-depth than 160 characters allows.

Re: Where Did everybody go??

it's not just the forum. You just need to look at the blog too. It used to be regularly updated which was great for me, having not lived in Hertford for nearly 5 years but still living locally. The last update was 31st July 2014.

Such a shame as this place used to be a hive of activity.

Re: Phones 4U

the reason they have nothing to sell is that the networks are trying to maximize their margins by selling direct. I can't remember the phone store footprint in Hertford, but I'm pretty sure most of the networks have their own retail presence, so it makes sense for them to sell via this route instead...

Re: A414 Road resurfacing

the did this to a road in Goffs Oak last year but when the temperature was in the high 20's. So, all that happened was the cars ripped up the road surface so it was worse than before they tried to fix it on the cheap. They came back and did it the following year but avoided the hot sun this time. I ...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment

tehre is seating along the riverfront - each tree appears to have a bench between it. Also, the curved glass building is undoubtedly destined to be a bar/restaurant/Starbucks. I don't think Hertford could sustain the amount of bars/restaurants that space would take to fill without change of use for ...

Re: Panshanger To Close

Where Did everybody go??

Is it just me, or has the number of active threads dropped massively since the switch to the new forum? I'll admit that I don't visit anywhere near as much as I used to, but then I live in Cuffley now :D However, I had over a 1000 posts on the last forum but there just doesn't seem to be enough acti...
