The funeral service of Lance Corporal Steven Gregory Sherwood of the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Light Infantry took place at St. Mary's Parish Church, Ross on Thursday, 17th November.

Former student at John Kyrle High School, Steven Sherwood from the Lea was killed in active service during an ambush outside a Mosque in the Northern Afghanistan city of Mazar-e-Sharif on Saturday, 29th October. Five other soldiers were injured in the attack - three of them seriously.

Steven Sherwood's funeral service was led by The Reverend Trish Grigor. The Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire was represented by General Sir Peter de la Billiere KCB KBE DSO MC DL and the Colonel of the Regiment was represented by Brigadier P E O'R-B Davidson-Houston, CBE.

Standard Bearers of the Regimental Association paraded at the entrance to the church and the bearer party was provided by The 1st Battalion, The Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Light Infantry.

Tributes and shared memories were given at the service by friend, Nicola Bucock, Wesley Parker of the Light Infantry and Captain Chris Hellier of the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire & Wiltshire Light Infantry. Hymns, 'When a Kinght Won His Spurs' and 'Lord of the Dance' were sung and Lieutenant Colonel Nick Welsh, MBE read from The Gospel according to John Chapter 14, verses 1-4, 6 and 27.

A private cremation took place following the service.

Apology for Unpublished News

I would like to apologize to quite a few people whose news I have just realized I missed when compiling this week's edition of 'Wyenot News'. After a really busy week, yesterday I was just so tired I wanted to get it on-line so that I could get some rest and discovered this morning that I missed a whole load of emails when compiling. I actually succeeded in getting to bed before 12:30 am last night. I will publish the articles next week. One of the problems of having to do the whole thing myself, I'm afraid - occasionally I just cave in under the pressure. In particular, I missed the Heritage Centre, Ross in Bloom and the January 2006 Community Forums info.

The New Rock Foundation article, for which I took a photo on Saturday evening, arrived too late and missed the deadline, I'm afraid.

Just think of this as a preview to next week's addition. Sorry!

Gorsley Goffs Primary School

Teachers at Gorsley Goffs Primary School have used vouchers collected by the parents of pupils, whilst shopping at Tesco's and Sainsbury's to purchase new sports and ICT equipment for the school. Pictured below with Head Teacher, Mr Humphrey and Lunch Time Supervisor, Mrs. Fishpool, the children show off some of the new equipment.

Children at the school have also filled shoe boxes with presents for needy children, which will be distributed around the world by the charity, 'Samaritan's Purse'.

Pupils at Gorsley Goffs are currently involved in setting up a school travel plan. Travel Plans are required by every school in the nation by 2010 and have three main aims; to reduce the use of cars by parents taking children to school, to improve safety awareness of children whilst walking or cycling and to increase health awareness and encourage less use of cars in general.

In the photograph, along with Mrs Pat Williams - Teaching Assistant, Mr Humphrey, Miss Jodie Challen - class teacher, Mrs Liz Fishpool, crossing superintendent and Rachel Lambert - film producer, children at the school can be seen making a promotional video for the plan.
