In this week’s Herald


In this week’s Herald, the first with our new editor Richard Howarth at the helm, we reveal plans to sell-off part of Stratford’s park-and-ride site.

The planned upgrade of Henley Street looks promising, as a £200,000 pledge by the district council is given the thumbs up.

We have another Christmas Angel in our series, Samaritan Ellie, who will be starting her big day at 4am with a shift on the phones.

Good work is also going on at Stratford Link Project, where we talk to homeless and vulnerable people who are changing their lives with music.

As Christmas Day looms we have the first in our Christmas Makers series, featuring all those who make our festive season tick – we kick off with a family of sprout farmers.

Among our feast of arts delights we have an in-depth interview with the RSC’s new Scrooge, Aden Gillett, star of the company’s hit show A Christmas Carol.

Talking of hit shows, we also have a chance to win tickets to the Hippodrome’s Peter Pan.

Plus we bring you all the sports news from across the district.
