to a letter issued by Herefordshire Council, addressed to shop
keepers affected by the event, 'Last year's market brought with
it a wonderful vibrant atmosphere and many additional visitors.'
I took the photograph to the left during last year's event,
the only additional visitors I actually noticed were the French
traders themselves, so if you do visit the market, please try
to support the farmer's market and local shopkeepers also. Let
us hope that the event is a success for Ross-on-Wye and that
nobody gets an arrow in the eye!

have been operating a kerbside collection of recycling material
in Ross-on-Wye town for four years now. Last year however a
private firm, WCR were asked to work in partnership with EnviroAbility
and Herefordshire Council to look at ways of improving and expanding
the collection of recyclable materials. As
a result, during the summer of this year, every Ross town household
received a blue box and basket to enable them to recycle paper,
glass, cans and textiles. This
scheme, named 'ReBox,' has been a great success, exceptionally
well received by residents.
Due to this
success, ReBox is now being expanded to offer the first of a
two phase initiative, offering a kerbside service to villages
and houses passed en-route. Residents in an area ranging from
the Welsh Border to Orcop, Little Birch, Fownhope, Kilcot, Walford
and Kern Bridge will benefit. Once this phase is established,
ReBox will move onto the second phase, which will involve talking
to people in more rural settings about organizing appropriate
local pickup points.
