Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

Flicked through a copy while in Sainsburys and noticed that hardly any estate agents are advertising with them so it seems that it is not only readers who have given up on it. I cannot believe those businesses who still advertise in the Mercury feel they are getting value for money. When I was movi...

Re: Rock At The Castle 2017

Hmm, not sure everyone would consider this charity in the strictest sense. And what about the other schools in the town? Is Richard Hale the most deserving or needy? I see the press release (pdf) says: it's "in recognition of the school’s 400th anniversary", it's also Simon Balle's 60th anniversary ...

Re: The Whistling Duck - Closed

Oh no I was about to book it for Saturday as the in-laws were coming. It was their favourite place around Hertford. Fine dining and the kids could run outside on the decking by the river. Any suggestions for equivalent places?

"Only one 30 minute ticket per day"

Hmm, that is not an improvement for users and will cause no end of knock on problems! :evil:
