As today, 8th February is Shrove Tuesday, I have included a photograph of the Ross-on-Wye pancake races which used to take place in Broad Street during the 1970s. This is one of those events which seems to have been tossed aside at some point during the last couple of decades. Shame!

The bottom photograph has nothing to do with Shrove Tuesday (unless by pure coincidence, it happened to have been taken on a past Shrove Tuesday) and is of a maternity ward, I would guess at the old Ross Cottage Hospital but I have no real idea of place or date. Is there anybody out there able to enlighten me?

Both photographs were scanned when I went through the Ross Gazette archive some years ago.

Rugby - Ross Loose in Mud Bath
 

After winning their last two leg matches without conceding any points, Ross RFC returned to friendly action on Saturday with an away game against Drybrook II. Fielding a strong three quarter line with plenty of pace, Ross were unable to run any ball due to a pitch which was more suited for a ploughing match. Due to the conditions the game was decided by the team that made better use of the muddy patches, and this was Drybrook who saw their fly half cross for a converted try.

From the restart Ross were able to get some possession in the oppositions half and were rewarded with a penalty which Gage slotted over. Half time, 7 - 3 to Drybrook.

Despite a large effort the second half remained scoreless and both sides continued to slug it out with mistakes plentiful.

Final score Ross 3 Drybrook 7.
