Events in 2018


Herefordshire CPRE Branch AGM 2018

Holmer Parish Church Centre, Holmer Road, Hereford 

"21st century transport - a vision for Hereford"

After the AGM on 13.10.18 Professor John Whitelegg gave a fascinating presentation  in which he emphasised the positives and the optimistic and realistic potential that exists to propel Hereford and surrounding villages and rural areas, into a 21st century vision of a safe, calm, clean, green, child-friendly, healthy, economically successful, zero-carbon, fiscally responsible city.  It was an illuminating talk with an abundance of working examples from other countries and the audience went away with lots to think about.  For those of us who couldn't make it on the day, John Whitelegg has kindly shared his presentation slides with us and they can be viewed by clicking this link.

Any use should please be acknowledged as:  "John Whitelegg's presentation to the CPRE Herefordshire AGM on 13.10.18", thank you.

In addition to the AGM, we hold occasional events that have relevance to the issues facing the county.
