Successful Advent Market
Advent Market, which took place on Sunday, 27th November
at the Market House proved to be a great success for everybody.
in conjunction with the Ross Chamber of Commerce arranged
for stall holders, which included both local crafts people
and charities to trade at the Market Place and for local
shops to open during the day. Most
stall holders were from the local area but some had come
from as far away as Chepstow and Broadway.
event had been arranged in place of the usual late night
opening for Christmas shopping, which has proved in the
past to be unsuccessful for shoppers and traders alike.
stall holders reported good trade throughout the day and
the shopkeepers with whom organizers have spoken since
reported steady customers during the time they were open.
Town Band entertained customers and traders for over an
hour during the afternoon and were also on hand for the
official acknowledgement of the season with the Christmas
Lights coming on at 4 pm. The Mayor and Mayoress, Councillor
Gordon and Mrs Margaret Lucas had toured shops and stalls
during the day and were on hand to wish everyone the compliments
of the season when the lights came on. They thanked everybody
for taking part in the day's events.
Price had previously visited traders and offered them
traditional cloaks and hats to wear. Upstairs in the Heritage
Centre the Cards for Good Causes and the Ross-in-Bloom
Tombola did a roaring trade, as did the Heritage Centre
staff. The Tombola will remain at the Heritage Centre
for the next two weeks, whilst the Cards for Good Causes
will be there until 12th December.
requests of "can you do it again" the organizers are seriously
considering repeating the event next year, along with
some added extras.

Look for Wyenot Home Page
the look of the front pages of Wyenot.com is something
I have been scared of doing as the Wyenot web site has
been extremely successful over the years and I did not
wish to risk ruining that success. Like wallpaper though,
eventually one can tire of looking at the same pattern
after a while so I did make a small change this week and
asked for viewers' opinions. The general layout of the
site remains exactly the same as before as the most frequent
comment I receive about Wyenot in general is that it is
one of the easiest web sites in the world to navigate.
I do not wish to spoil that in any way. The changes are
am still receiving emails with comments about the new
design but so far, 100% have said that they like the new
look. Most local people hit this site of a Tuesday or
Wednesday, so I will wait a few more days before making
the final decision but at the moment, it looks very much
like the new layout is here to stay.
you all very much for your feedback. When I ask a question
like that, it makes me realize just how many regular viewers
there actually are out there in the ether. The furthest
reply has come from New Zealand and the closest, from
Ross. Sorry I have not had the time to reply to you all
personally - please take this article as a sincere thank
you for your help.
