news . . .
have been rather a lot of events to cover this week, the
Pub & Club Regatta taking up a lot of the photographic
space, so I have split this week's 'Wyenot News' into
Compiling this photographic web news is somewhat different
from compiling a newspaper or printed magazine in that
I have to think about download times for dial-up users
and have to worry how many photographs are on each page.
I suspect that most people in the UK have broadband these
days and that those in villages who cannot yet get it
will be able to do so in the near future. Until everybody
has it though, building for the majority is all I can
do. I do however fully appreciate that this news will
be slow loading for those using dial-up. I also try to
consider all items covered in this weekly news with equal
importance, so if your news item appears on page five,
it is not a reflection on your event - it is purely division
of the photographs between pages.
would like to make Wyenot News a daily feature but at
the moment, this is impossible due to lack of time. For
the past two weeks, I have seen dawn crack and heard the
birds tweeting before getting to bed on News Day. It's
nearly 1:00 am as I type this and I still have at least
an hour's work ahead of me. It all seems worth it though
as Wyenot News is currently the third most popular area
of the web site, after the home page and accommodation
pages and it is viewed by many thousands of people, local
and world wide every week. People in Australia and New
Zealand start hitting the news pages within minutes of
my uploading them to the server. The embarrassing thing
is that, being tired, I usually don't spot the glaring
grammatical errors until reading it through properly the
I have a spelling chequer, it came with my P.C. It thankfully
sorts out for me, miss takes I cannot sea. . .
lovers in the Village of Goodrich enjoyed an evening of
'Wok and Roll' at the Village Hall on Saturday evening.
The evening began with a meal cooked by Jacki Tay, using
his village famous wok and was followed by a 'top twenty'
rock and roll songs, performed by artists 'Nuts & Bolts,'
who teamed up specially for the evening. The songs were
chosen from a list by the audience whilst they enjoyed
Jacki's Chinese cuisine.
evening of entertainment acted as a fund-raiser for 'Goodrich
Music,' a local group whose aim is to bring music to Goodrich
School and a musical event to the village, 'of the type
not expected in a village hall' during the autumn of 2005.
sell-out event was an instant success; all eighty tickets,
selling at £12.50 per time going within days. Organizer,
Tom Richardson said, 'We could have sold the tickets three
times over but the village hall only has the capacity
to cater for eighty people.

wins an award in Canada
Yates went to Canada to take place in a Karate tournament
and won a Silver award in Kumite (fighting) for 14 / 15
year old girls. Girls from all over the world took part
in the tournament. Amy has been training in Karate for
six years. The squad of fourteen hopefuls who travelled
to Canada won a total of sixteen medals.
below with Zoe Powell, who also took part in the Canadian
tournament, Amy shows her medal. Below that, the pair
can be seen engaged in combat in the gym at Bridstow School
last Monday evening.
