Re: Aldi

Interesting to read the latest Mercury report on the proposed Aldi store on the present Which site. Much has been said about the car parking facilities that need to be available but what about those potential customers who, for one reason or another have to use public transport. So far as I am aware...

Poudstretcher

Is Poundstretcher in Maidenhead Street still open. When I walked by this morning it looked as thought it might be closed now.

Re: Hertfordshire Mercury

Only about 9000 circulation, amazing, it doesn't seem long ago that the figure was around 30,000. Can it survive?

Bircherley Green

What a depressing place Bircherley Green has become. Closed shops boarded up and now painted black. Waitrose also closed. Clock not working. Bus information board not working. Toilets only partially available and awful condition. So this is our County town now, just how long is this going to continu...

Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

We used to have a standing order for The Mercury for many years, but decided that it was no longer good value for money as it contained very little current local news.

Re: Hertfordshire Mercury job losses?

I wonder, what is the current circulation figure for the Mercury series compared with, say five years ago. I no longer buy the paper, and it is most difficult to read the on line version due to interrupting adverts each time. Sadly, it has lost its way. There are after all, other alternative sources...

Wallace family

Carrying out a family history project, I am seeking details of a Wallace family who lived, or possibly still living in the Palmer Road, Palmer Close or surrounding part of Bengeo. Any information would be appreciated.
