Yes, I think they are based at Lakenheath and then fly down to Hyde Park when he needs a lift.

He's due to leave tomorrow. Should be flying over Hertford between 8am and 10am. Cameras at the ready

The two green Sea Kings are what carries the President although not called Marine One until he's on board. Tomorrow night at about 9pm he's supposed to fly over.

Re: V-22 Osprey

This was the test run for Obama arriving on Thursday evening. The Ospreys are escorting Marine One and Two. Technically speaking they aren't called that until POTUS is onboard.

No connection with me. He used to be a neighbour when I lived on Ware Road.

Re: Post Office Moving To Maidenhead Street

I think this is a really good idea. It seems to make sense combining the post office with another similar business and putting it in private hands should mean more consistent customer service. Also one of the directors of UOE lives in Hertford so hopefully they'll take special interest in this one....

Lots of large companies use their cash funds to finance other ventures. Equipment financing is very popular for this.

Re: East Herts Electrical closing

A real shame to see these guys close. The only few places to buy incandescent light bulbs.

Re: Abellio abandon Hertford East

What happened to Oyster too? Wasn't that one of the plans to bring Oyster to Hertford East?
