Herford

Hi Guys

Posted to Herford, wondered what it was like?? Have been in Germany for the last year, so the shopping etc is not the problem, looking for info on quartering estates, job situation for civies, etc etc etc.
(and yes I know that I can get that from the Community Guide, but they always paint the rosy picture of the station, but not the reality!!)

Any news gratefully received

Ta very muckle :D

Was that the pad with a knocking shop in the middle of it ? Or was that Bunde ?

Well I'll take it from the top!...
The high town has just been repaved.
There are no real new developnments but the city is small...it is being overun by hauds of chavs and take my advice, don't go south side (or south of the wye to you), as you wil soon learn, a tour to the sandpit is far less scary than a drive to 'quinzies'...(a small spar-type shop on the edge of the bridge)
I really can't tell you much about it, it is a small place, and has a strong sense of community, it also has alot of old people (hence the smell of cabbage , which has nothing to do with sun vally and its mould y chicken produce :lol:)
It's high town is becoming more and more, coffe shoppy, outdoor sportsy, and music 'n' video storey, so is increasingly poop!.
Good clubs are: 'PLAY' and 'dusk'
It has a good swimingpool and leisure centre both run by halo and each have a good size gym
I cant think of much more to say really, but feel free to ask any questions and I will try my very hardest to answer them, (I really do sound like an eBay seller now :lol:)

p.s. anyone who has ever been here: do we really sound like farmers??
Herford not Hereford you dweeb!

And the knocking shop was on the Gofeld estate. Gofeld, Enger and Besenkamp estates are no more.

Can't have been Enger. Nothing EVER happened there. Plenty of home made bars down in the cellers though :)

I lived in Herford for 5 years when me dad was in - nice place - used to live down alterpoztveg (sp??) people well sound - one thing I remember is the germans driving rnd the married quarters after 1990 world cup honking their horns all night and that some idiot left a gas pipe on and it blew half a flat open bout 500 yrds from where we lived.

great times there for a young kid

I have just travelled back from Herford yesterday.

Herford town centre is not too bad. There are a few clothes shops. Bielefeld and Bad Salzuflen (where my hotel was) are nearby. They also have shops, so it's not too bad on the shopping front!!

There are also things like a 24 hour mc donalds (I am sure this could be useful at some point) and I noted a club lol

The accomodation isn't too bad I have been told (as it isn't me who is in the army).

I hope you have a good time :D
