Train to become an interpreter
Herefordshire Council’s language service, the Herefordshire Language Network, is offering more training for interpreters in November, and the application process is now open.
On Saturday 24-Sunday 25 November 2018, a two-day unaccredited “foundation training” course will take place in Hereford city.
The training event is an excellent starting point for anyone who has ever considered trying out interpreting, and could lead to paid work. A very high level of fluency in English and one other language is required. While all languages are welcome, the Network is looking particularly for languages such as Kurdish, Arabic, Lithuanian, and African and Indian languages. BSL is also welcome. Since 2009, the council has trained over 200 people in interpreting and translation skills, which allows them to work for the Herefordshire Language Network. The Network currently manages around 350 assignments every month for public services and voluntary organisations.
The deadline for applications is 12 November. To find out more about the criteria for applying, and to download an application form, please visit www.herefordshire.gov.uk/language, or call 01432 260216.
The A44 in Pembridge will be closed for resurfacing from Monday, 17 September 2018 to Friday, 28 September 2018. The road will be closed between 9.00 am until 5.00 pm daily and there will be no weekend work. The closures will be in sections and local businesses will be open as usual. The signed diversion will be via the A480 through Lyonshall to Sarnesfield so increased traffic through the village can be expected.
The B4362 through the centre of Shobdon village will be closed between The Bateman Arms and Moor Meadow from 9.00 am until 5.00pm from Tuesday 28th August until Friday 31st August 2018. HGVs should use the signed diversion routes and not local unclassified roads. The Bateman Arms will still be open with access from the east and the village shop will also be open with limited access from the west.
The full moon will turn blood red on July 27th as the longest total lunar eclipse of the century takes place in the skies.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s innermost shadow. When this happens, the moon turns rusty orange or deep red in color and is how it earned the nickname of a blood moon eclipse.
It will last for about one hour and 40 minutes starting at about 8:50pm with climax at 9:21pm to 10:13 pm in the south-eastern sky, towards Pembridge.

Work has started on the renovation and extension of The Royal George public house with heavy plant excavating and levelling the new parking area.
The only downside has been that recent rain has caused mud to be deposited on the road between the site and the field in Spond Lane where the excess topsoil is being stored. A road sweeper is being used to reduce danger and inconvenience caused by the mud.
