TV Chef Lesley Waters opens new roadside entrance to Ross Labels

Ref: DSC_6842

Television's Lesley Waters, former teacher at Prue Leith's School of Food and Wine opened the new customer entrance to Ross Labels on Friday, 10th December. Lesley has worked for many television stations but is perhaps best known for being a part of BBC's 'Ready, Steady, Cook' programme. The cooking demonstration was broadcast live on BBC Hereford and Worcester.

Lesley told me that her husband is a photographer but that he doesn't tend to photograph her as he 'knows her too well'. Thank you Lesley, for your co-operation and I hope these photos meet with your husband's approval.

Above, you can see Lesley, having just cut the ribbon to open the new entrance. Below, Lesley and her assistant, Louise Chaunt pause during the live demonstration. Below that, Lesley signs copies of the Ready Steady Cook book.

The Heritage Centre goes Canadian During Christmas Week
 

Why not come and have some "Canadian Style" fun during Christmas week? Our Canadian expert will be holding an activity day on Wednesday, 22nd December between 10:30 am and 3 pm. Discover the wild animals native to Canada, join in a quiz, construct your own mobile and paint yourself into a Canadian scene with bears, wolves, moose and beavers. This is a free drop in activity open to all and you will be able to stay for as long as you like. Children must be accompanied by an adult, so bring mum or dad, granny or granddad or even your auntie or uncle. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative work and to the quiz winner, so join the staff for some great fun.

For those who wish to create a last minute Christmas card for somebody special, the centre will be holding a "Stained Glass Card" workshop on Monday 20th December. Again this will be a free drop in session which will be held between 10:30 am to 3 pm Educators from the Hereford Museum will be visiting for the day and will be bringing all the materials needed for this activity. Once again this is for all ages, but children can only take part if they are accompanied.

 

The Lions "Tree of Memories" will remain at the Heritage Centre until Twelfth Night on 6th January. Anybody who wishes to remember a loved one this Christmas can purchase a card from the staff to hang on the tree. Absolutely all proceeds go to local charities through the very worthwhile work of the Ross Lions Club. Cards cost 2 each, and once in place, make a beautifully decorated tree for all to see.

There is still time to have a go at the fun quiz for all the family, over the holiday. Question sheets will be available on the desk or in the Ross Gazette and Ross Recorder newspapers. Prizes of boxes of chocolates will be given to the first two correct answer sheets opened after the closing date of 30th December. This is a free competition open to all ages.

Further information, as always, on all forthcoming events and exhibitions at the Heritage Centre can be obtained by calling in or telephoning 01432 260675.
