The opening hours will be maintained and investment is planned to bring them up to date.Councillor Harlow said We received feedback from our public consultation and discussions with user groups and we recognise that libraries are seen as an important asset to the community, with which we agree and that is why we have made our decisions today.During the next six months it will be working with partners to promote ways in which local people can promote their mental health.
Herefordshire Council is utilising World Mental Health Day to promote mental wellbeing within the county.
Installation of credit and debit card readers with contactless payment has started at Herefordshire Council car parks in Hereford.
Most of the city car parks pay and display machines will be equipped with the readers over the coming days, customers are advised to look out for the signs.
This addition will make parking simpler in Hereford and ensure that our car parks are easy to use and accessible giving drivers different options to pay for their parking which include payment by phone, coins and now card, season discs are also available for most council car parks.
Drivers will no longer need to find the change for the parking machines, this will also mean that customers can save money by paying the exact amount required.
Today at Cabinet, Herefordshire councillors voted to maintain libraries across the county.
Within a tough financial climate Herefordshire Council has bucked against the national trend and has agreed to continue with its library network across the county.
There will be no additional fee or minimum spend for members of the public paying by card and a receipt will be issued by the machine if required.
For those drivers that prefer to pay via Ringo or with cash these options will still be available and remain unchanged.
