'Victory of the Cross', a musical written by Andy Newton
was performed by a combined choir of sixty five and a
twenty piece orchestra from 'Churches Together' at John
Kyrle High School on Friday and Saturday.
The musical took Andy about two years to produce and came
about as a result of his last musical, 'Hosanna', which
was performed at the Baptist Church in 2003.

Ross Lions' Charity Quiz
It was almost like the Race Night all over again. The
atmosphere, excitement, friendship and the competitiveness
were all there. There was also jubilation when it was
announced that a grand total of £194.00 had been raised
for local charities.
venue was the Conservative Club and fourteen teams battled
it out to see who were the champions of the evening. Two
teams soon took the lead and spent the rest of the evening
locked together, neither giving the other team an inch.
After a welcome supper and the final questions it was
announced there was a tie for first place. This meant
there was to be a tiebreaker. Both teams, ‘Three Wise
Men and one Woman’ consisting of Rob Little, Gill and
Mike Davies with Ray Cawthorn opposing the ‘Hedgehogs’
who were Brian and Judy Harris along with Wendy and Phil
Wheeldon were game to the end. The tiebreaker also ended
up as a draw and the adjudicator had to decide the winner
by declaring that the Hedgehogs had come closest to the
correct answer in a numbers question.
atmosphere was breathtaking and the result brought about
a great round of applause. The winners each won an Easter
Egg. The team who won the prize for the best name very
cheekily chose “We can’t think of a name”. They were led
by Tony Little and came from PGL. All in all a good and
entertaining evening and the Lions, through their president,
Mel Middlecote thanked all those who attended, Brian and
Tina Marshall, Sharon Heaben and Glyn Andrews for organizing
the Quiz and the Conservative for providing the venue.
