Dedication of the Crib at Hereford Cathedral

Herefordshire Junior Singing Club, of which several members come from Ross-on-Wye, performed at the blessing of the crib in Hereford Cathedral on Monday 5th December.

Formed in September 2003 and now into its third year, the club has over thirty regular members, boys and girls aged between seven and fourteen from schools around the county. Members are not auditioned and many have been involved since the club's inception. The club meet on Saturday mornings during term time in central Hereford and give public performances each term.

The autumn term focuses on Christmas music and this year, for the second year running, sang at the Service of Dedication of the Crib and will be singing at the Carols for Shoppers service on 17th at 12:00 noon, which will also be held in Hereford Cathedral. Some senior members will also be singing at the National Trust property, Berrington Hall during the month. The spring term music revolves round music from Shows; recent performances include Mary Poppins, The Wizard of Oz and The Sound of Music. Next term the young singers will be working at Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The summer term sees the club's participation in a large-scale concert in the Cathedral, in which some two hundred children from local primary schools take part.

Those interested in joining, or parents on behalf of interested children are encouraged to contact the club's administrator on 01432 269403.

Dear Sir,

Ross-in-Bloom in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce would like to thank everyone for participating in the Advent Market last week. In the past we have organized Summer Markets with Crafts and entertainment. This was the first venture of its kind for the Festive Season.

It was a great success and we would not have been able to do it without help. Normally we would not mention names for fear of leaving out important people but we feel there should be some mention of just a few individuals. We are very grateful for the support given to the event by Gordon and Margaret Lucas not just during the day but on the lead up to it. They have given ourselves and the traders tremendous support and we thank them most sincerely.

To those individuals who braved the exposed areas (inside and out) of the Market Place to set up their stalls - we thank you for your support. It is understood you did very well for trade.

To the shops who bravely ventured into opening at a different time to usual. We hope to all had a successful day of trading. Thank you for your support. To the Town Band who provided very cheerful carols and other music, thank you very much. We hope to see you again at another event.

Thanks to Iris Price for supplying traditional costumes to the stallholders. To Admiral Lord Nelson (John Price) who made an appearance during the afternoon. We understand both of these individuals also helped with the band collection boxes. Thanks also must go to the staff of the Heritage Centre who not only did sterling work on the day but had been taking bookings and answering queries since October. Finally to all of those who visited the Market to look, to listen and/or to buy, thank you for supporting us again.

Seasonal Greetings to Everyone

Lyn Tomlinson, Chairman Ross-in-Bloom
Jo Ashman, President Ross Chamber of Trade.
