Just joined the site, and was excited to see this thread for Hereford. I notice though that no one has posted for a while though, would be good to start up again and get an idea of whats around this area. Are there not many people from Hereford on this site :t:

Hi Dollymoss... it's hard to tell, as not everyone gives out their location details.

I would like to see more postings to this thread, my brother lives in Abergavenny, so it's not too far away when I go to visit him.
