Christmas Week Edition
 

This week's edition of Wyenot News is virtually all photographic with the Christmas Carnival appearing on this page, other topical photography on page two and the last in the series of illuminated houses plus a reader's letter on page three.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all readers of Wyenot News a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Here, at Wyenot.com HQ we are really going to push the boat out this Christmas. I have just been to Morrison's to purchase a 60 watt light bulb to brighten up the living room for the holiday season, a bottle of Tizer and a nice tin of Spam for lunch on Christmas Day. It was well worth suffering the squeaky, American brat singing, 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' on the piped music system and the half an hour queue at the checkout to obtain these luxuries. After all, Christmas occurrs but once a year, so one should celebrate with a feast fit for a king!

However you celebrate, have a great time but don't drink and drive!


Coming next week - A Photographic Review of 2004 Ross-on-Wye Events and News


Santa visits Ross-on-Wye during the Christmas Carnival

Thanks to a group of local individuals, Father Christmas visited Ross-on-Wye during the Christmas Carnival on Saturday 18th December. Ross Cubs and Scouts led the way with a torchlight parade, followed by Ross Phoenix Majorettes and Brownies as Santa and his helpers made their way along Brookend and Broad Street to the Market House, where he met with local children. Each child was given an early Christmas present and a last chance to tell Santa what they were hoping for.

Father Christmas takes time out from his busy schedule to pose for a photograph with Amy King. Little Amy is as popular as Santa Claus himself and probably knows just as many people. She brightens everybody's day when she visits the Hope & Anchor Coffee Shop with her mum and her puppy, 'Lulu'.
