We hope you like the new-look front page and the new features we have added to the site. It represents a new direction for us: more focused on the needs of Garway today, and ready to take up the cudgels on behalf of the community.
The Local Issues is a place where your views can be aired and shared. Local Arts and Entertainment will receive more coverage, and in Wha'ts On and Regular Features you will find all the important information about local activities and services gathered in one place for your reference - right here on Garway Online.
It's all part of our central purpose to foster community involvement in local democracy and engender a lively community spirit in the Garway local area.
Here at Garway Online we keep our ears to the ground, seeking out the local stories you want to read about. If it's News in Garway you can expect to read it here - but we are only human and we might not get to hear about everything. If you have a story you would like to share with your neighbours, or just something you would like to alert us about, please contact us.
A further Consultation Day is planned for the 8th July to review the additional information obtained at the consultation in March. A time for this event will be announced soon.

Advanced warning of Mains Sewer works by Welsh Water and Sir Robert McAlpine, for traffic through Hereford
The re-development of the Old Market site in Hereford City is well underway and will require some major changes to services such as water and electricity. The first of those changes will be work to move a mains sewer pipe in Newmarket Street. The work which will be undertaken by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, in conjunction with Sir Robert McAlpine will mean that Newmarket Street, eastbound will be closed for up to four weeks from 12 May 2013.
Attached is the Welsh Water’s information leaflet which includes the diversion routes for the duration of the works. Welsh Water is mailing this leaflet to 4,500 homes and businesses in Hereford city over the next two days. This will be followed with a second mailing two weeks prior to the work. Advanced signage outlining the diversion and the number for Welsh Water’s customer services will appear on the network on April 26 2013.
