Ross-on-Wye Nature Watch

Above and below: The Blue Tit, Parus caeruleus, is usually a common garden bird but this one showed distinct signs of being well bred as it seemed to prefer spending the night in our bedroom (there's nuffing common about us)! I found it on Sunday, sitting on the tee shirt I had worn the previous day and carried it out to the garden, where it rested for a while, kindly posed for these photographs and then happily flew away.

Archive Ross-on-Wye

Moving to Westminster? The dismantling of the gasometer in New Street. I cannot remember when the gasometer disappeared but it was definitely during the early 1980s. The aerial photos I took in 1979 and 1980 (fourth photo down) show it in place. I am sorry but I do not know who took this photograph, which came from the Ross Gazette archive.


Ross Rugby - A Promising Start

Ross was pleased with the turn out of nearly 30 players on Saturday, looking to get a run out in the first game of Ross' season. The experience of the players on the pitch in many cases spanned a number of decades whilst for others it was their first game at senior level.

Machem brought with them a forty strong contingency with a determined resolve to open their season with a winning performance. From the start of the game they proved to be a very strong, well disciplined team, who would be taking the game to Ross from the opening whistle blast.

The game began with both teams competing evenly throughout the first quarters. This was reflected by the 12-5 score line in Machem's favour at the half time break. The second half however saw the well disciplined strong Machem side step up the task, comprehensively increasing their own score line and sealing Ross' fate. Despite a well disciplined back line Ross were unable to further their own points tally, and couldn't increase their 5 points scored during the first quarter.

Ross' fixture card is now full with an even mixture of League and cup games interspersed with friendly fixtures; this gives the opportunity for all those involved Ross, a chance to get a run out regardless of experience.

Training has been in full swing over the summer months and will now focus on the weaker areas of Ross' game exposed by Machem this weekend. Training continues at 6:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the sports centre off Wilton Road. Ross continues to extend the offer to anyone experienced or new to the game or just wishing to have a run out at their local club to come and get involved on a Tuesday or Thursday.

The next match will be August 27th 2005 against a London Fire Brigade Touring side at the sports centre ground off Wilton road. Kick Off at 3 o'clock. This is definitely a new and unknown test for Ross.
