New Year's Eve 2004 / 2005 in Ross-on-Wye

New Year's Eve 2004 attracted the largest and most friendly crowd I have personally seen in many years to Ross-on-Wye Market Place. Thinking that perhaps not much would be going on, as we had not heard much noise coming from the town area, Tina and I didn't leave home until around 11:30 pm. We had only made it as far as Brookend Street however when the first two girls of many stopped us, wanting me to take their photograph. They are pictured left - Becci and Kayleigh.

From that moment on, I was stopped every few seconds - 'Please take my photograph and put me in the Ross Gazette and on Wyenot.com?'

Well, I can't promise the Ross Gazette as I don't work there, as such - I just take some of the Gazette's photos. I'll send them all in but then it's up to the editor to decide. I can include most who asked here however. I have excluded some of those who simply jumped up in front of the camera as this method of getting seen does not result in the best quality photograph or photographer's willingness to publish the result.

The photograph below of the crowd was taken just seconds before midnight and shows just how many people actually turned up to welcome in the New Year. From there on you can see the photos of all those who asked. These continue over several pages of this week's edition.

Afterwards, when we went for a drink in the Man of Ross and the Hope & Anchor. Tina commented, 'I bet you've never been called "Babe" by so many teenage girls in your life before!' I can only assume it was my woolly hat that did it!


If there was any trouble that evening, I was certainly not aware of it and feel pretty confident that New Year 2004/5 was a happy and trouble free celebration, with most people enjoying themselves.

As it all happened so quickly, I am afraid that I cannot put names to faces. I did note a few names down but after the event, cannot match them with the photographs.

Photographs of the New Year's Day 2005 Fun Run winners are on the last page of this week's edition.

Happy New Year!
