Just a note to say thank you, I read your web paper every
Tuesday, and on Sundays, when I phone my mother who still
lives in Ross-On-Wye, it gives me an insight into what
is been going on.
I lived in Ross while growing up and still have very fond
memories, I used to enjoy a glass of GL now and then and
found myself in many taverns. Please keep up the good
work it is appreciated by those who love the place that
we all still call home.

for the invitation, sent via the Wyenot News editorial
form. I realize that you are not from Great Britain and
may not know the geography well but if you do happen to
be visiting Ross-on-Wye before your performance, I wouldn't
take a taxi. Edinburgh is about 400 miles north of here.
Good luck with your first performance though!
Alan, A very good site, plenty of information and easy
to use. We are stopping on the way through from Norwich
to St David’s tomorrow, just a suggestion from a visitors
point of view. Would it be possible to put some info regarding
parking, where the short / long term parking areas are,
and the charges. Just a suggestion but carry on the good
work of informing us “tourists” trying to discover our
country. Regards Paul Hurst.
for that, Paul. That is a good idea and I will certainly
add this information over the next week or so.
Parking in Ross is a subject close to my heart at the
moment as I have just had a battle with Herefordshire
County Council over a parking ticket and I lost. My mum
died a short time ago and the day after her funeral, my
mind was elsewhere when I drove to a Ross car park, which
was extremely busy. After waiting for a while for a space,
somebody behind me drove out of a slot so I reversed in
using mirrors, not noticing that it was a 'disabled' slot.
The only markings were on the ground underneath my car
and I didn't notice them in the mirror whilst reversing.
They told me that there is no need for eye level 'disabled'
signs in a car park and tried to tell me that there was
a crosshatch yellow marking next to where I got out of
my car but on later inspection I noticed that there was
not. It was on the opposite side of the car to the driver's
door of the slot next to the one I used - not the one
I was in.
got a 30 quid parking ticket, even though I had paid my
£0.90 to park there for four hours. To add insult
to injury, I had parked there in the first place to photograph
an event in town for the benefit of Ross-on-Wye. They
still made me pay. I fully understand the need for disabled
parking as my mother herself was disabled for thirty years
but my parking wrongly that day was purely accidental.
Ross-on-Wye is a lovely town and has a good Town Council.
Herefordshire County Council on the other hand are ...
well I guess you can picture my thoughts on that subject!
I'm waiting for that moment when I have a full bladder
and see a Herefordshire Traffic Enforcement Officer on
fire. I'll pee on the ground next to him!
