Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

Their writers (they are not journalists) appear to know little about the area they cover. They are simply not qualified to write for an alleged local newspaper. On the Facebook page 'pictures of Hertford and Ware' there's a Mercury lad called Martin Ford who puts up a preview of that weeks historic...

Re: Door fitter/hanger needed

Assuming you are talking hardwood rather than upvc/composite then Peter Wentworth is your man

Peter's number is 07850 451161 but he is always busy and I know he has a few kitchen fits coming up so get in quick.

Re: Gang Warfare on the streets of Hertford

I like the way that with no sense of irony the second article includes a link back to the over-hyped and erroneous original

Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

I apologise for the content of this but it needs to be said... I still buy a Mercury most weeks (God knows why) but there it is. Today's H&W edition featured a big piece regarding the rape of a poor 16 yr old in Waltham Cross (I'll let the location of the story pass). There's an old adage in public ...

I think it's appalling that a major building society/bank cannot have a presence in a county town and told the very nice lady who dealt wit...
