Introducing your Mayor

Mark Dykes

Born in Hereford, I grew up in the Whitecross area of the City with my parents Ray and Sylvia and my two brothers Ashley and Jeremy. I attended Lord Scudamore Primary School, Lord Scudamore Junior School and finally, secondary education at Whitecross High School. I had a passion for physical activity and represented the school at various sports, including Athletics and Swimming.

A career in the Military beckoned and after a short period working at Sun Valley, in 1987 I joined the Royal Artillery and completed my basic training in Woolwich, London. My first posting was to 56 Special Weapons Battery, 39 Heavy Regiment in Sennelager, Germany. After serving in Germany and Cyprus, I volunteered to join the Commando Forces. On completing the All Arms Commando Course in June 1991 and earning the coveted Green Beret, I was posted to 29 Commando Regiment RA in Plymouth. I served with “two nine” for the remaining 20 years of my 23 year military career.

Our Vision

Who We Are

Council Services

As a parish council, Hereford City Council only provides a small number of direct services to the public space.

Twinning

The CITY OF HEREFORD TWINNING ASSOCIATION (HTA) was constituted in 1987 with the aim of promoting international friendship and understanding and of fostering the mutual exchanges at all levels between the peoples of the twinned towns. Each year the MAYOR OF HEREFORD is invited to be President of the Association.

Community Led Plan & Objectives

Working towards being a more active City Council, bringing a clearer voice to the city and providing strong community leadership is important.

Community Grants Scheme

Community Group Achievement Awards

The awards are not just about groups Hereford City Council has awarded funding to, it’s about all the community and volunteer groups within the City of Hereford, who deliver projects and events to improve the lives of others and the environment within the City of Hereford.
