The French are coming again . . .

October 1st will see the return to Ross-on-Wye of the touring French Market
. The 'European Market' will consist of between 24 and 29 stalls and will be joining traders from the monthly Friday 'Farmer's Market'. The market will be trading in Broad Street at the junction of Broad Street / Gloucester Road and there will be a road closure in place on the day, in the section of Broad Street affected. This coincides with the already closed Greytree Road.

According 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.'

When 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!



EnviroAbility - ReBox goes rural . . .

EnviroAbility 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.
