Sea Cadets Light Beacon on Trafalgar Day

Many local people attended the proceedings, which began at 7:00 pm with a short talk on the battle and Lord Nelson given by Sue Lampart. Nelsonís prayer was read by Ross-on-Wye's youngest Sea Cadet, Ryan Green just prior to the lighting of the beacon at 7:15 pm.

In Pink for Breast Cancer Care

A 'Pink' party was held at Nature's Choice in Broad Street on Thursday, 20th October, in aid of 'Breast Cancer Care,' a charity providing information and support to women and to families of those affected by breast cancer. Last year Breast Cancer Care worked with 22,000 women diagnosed with the disease.

A group of Ross women wanted to do something to help the charity by raising funds and with the organization of Sam Punn, arranged the Party. Kathryn Roberts of Nature's Choice agreed to host the evening and donated a percentage of the ticket price to the cause. £230.00 was raised by the event..

Business As Usual at the Hope & Anchor!

In order to dispel any incorrect rumours regarding the Hope & Anchor, Ben Nelsey and his staff would like to make it absolutely clear that it is business as usual at the pub. Yes, the leasehold is for sale, but for the time being Ben is still the landlord and he has a whole programme of events going on over the next few weeks. For Example:

On Saturday 29th October there is a Hallowe'en fancy dress party with karaoke and DJ from 7 pm and the prize for the best costume will be a meal for two and a bottle of champagne.

On Friday 4th November there will be a bonfire and fantastic firework display. "Why not 5th November?" people ask. The answer to this is that the Ross Lions are holding their biggest fundraiser for local charities on Guy Fawkes night itself this year and the Hope & Anchor would not wish to deter anybody from attending this terrific annual event.

For those of you who are looking to attend the Potters' Bar reunion on 26th November: this event was a huge success last year and the staff at the Hope & Anchor are looking forward to meeting you all again, along with those who could not make it last time.

There is also a plan to hold a Christmas party, including Santa, for the children of the Hope's regular customers on 18th December and there's more. Further events at the Hope & Anchor are listed on the What's On? page of this web site.
