Brighter lights for Ross-on-Wye Christmas 2004

The Christmas lights in Ross-on-Wye were switched on at 4:30 pm Saturday, 20th November by Mayor Nigel Gibbs at a ceremony which also included Deputy Mayor, Gordon Lucas, Margaret Lucas, Town Clerk, Denise Mason, Peggy Fisher, Jenny Hyide, Rose Frankin and Phil Cutter.

Gordon Lucas and Phil Cutter have worked hard installing the lights this year, their days beginning at 6:00 am in order to get the job completed. Due to regulations however, strings of lights cannot be stretched across the street and attached to the market house. The town's illuminations are much more colourful this year, which is better for the children. Gordon and Margaret are hoping to improve the Christmas illuminations from now on by adding more to the display each year. Within the coming weeks, when scaffolding has been removed from the couple's motorcycle shop, Christmas trees will be placed along Brookend Street. Photographs of Broad Street and Gloucester Road, taken on Sunday evening can be seen both above and below. I must say that personally I think this year's display is a vast improvement over the previous two!
