Ross Rugby Club Awards and Celebrations
a successful season, Ross Rugby Club converged on the Conservative
Club for their Annual Awards Evening on Saturday, 20th May.
After accepting their League winners medals from Sponsor Andy
Gooding of 'Charlies Bar', everyone sat back and enjoyed two
wonderful speeches from Paul Chandler, Chairman of the Forest
Referees Society and Mark Hackett, ex Ross Colts player.
night was then brought to a close with the individual awards.
Ross RFC wish to thank all those who played, helped behind the
scenes or just came along and supported their local team. Pre
season training starts on Tuesday 11th July, 6.45pm at Ross
for one of the best evenings out I've had in ages! There
are more photos to feel embarrassed about in the gallery.

The President's Game.
brought a successful season to a close on Saturday with
a game against a Ross Presidents Select XV, made up of players
from around the Forest and Ross itself. They say there's
no such thing in rugby as a friendly and this encounter
epitomized that theory. Both teams crashed into each other
with tremendous commitment and energy throughout the game.
With no quarter given or asked by any player, the tackling
was ferocious as the Presidents XV looked to protect a 3
year winning streak against Ross.
such a great season Ross were looking to break their duck
in this series of matches, having come up short each time
over the last 3 years. Both packs worked hard to gain the
ascendancy early on. However their enthusiasm led to too
many infringements as the game struggled to find any pattern.
This was not helped by a greasy, wet surface. However as
the game progressed and settled down, both sides began to
add skill to the energy and commitment. Ross, when it mattered,
were able to bring enough continuity to their attacks to
turn pressure into points. This was hard on a Presidents
XV that offered up some great individual performances. However
as with all scratch sides, they found it difficult to string
enough phases of play together to force a score. The game
ended Ross 28 Presidents XV 0, with Ross scoring four excellently
worked tries. The Presidents XV made them work hard for
their scores and deserve huge credit for putting up such
a stubborn display.
and Charities Markets
Ross-in-Bloom will be holding another Crafts and Charities
Market on Bank Holiday Monday, 29th May from 10am to 3pm.
There is still time for bookings for a sales space to be
made. Space available costs £5 per pitch. Those taking part
will have to provide their own tables and cover for hot
or inclement weather. Bookings are taken on a first come
first served basis. To book a pitch or to make enquiries
please telephone 01989 563056 (before 8pm) daily or call
in at Halcyon Daze and the Heritage Centre.
is with deep regret that due to complaints from a few local
traders near the Market House about the content of the markets
being held, this will be the last one for the foreseeable
future organized by Mary Powell. Those in August and November
have been cancelled, together with the entertainment and
other extras in May.
who was looking forward to seeing the Belly Dancers again
will be able to do so at the Carnival on Saturday 5th August.
However, if there is anyone out there who would like to
take on the task of running such events, Ross-in-Bloom would
be pleased to hear from them.
would like to thank everyone who has supported them with
these markets over the years and apologize to anyone who
cannot now take this opportunity to raise money for their
own charities. Anyone who has booked and paid for further
markets will be contacted in due course and a full refund
of their pitch fee will be made. We hope this notice of
cancellation will give stallholders the chance to find another
venue for the August Bank Holiday weekend.
pancake races, 'It's a Knockout' and the three legged beer
race have all disappeared. Gala Day, an event which attracted
tourists to the town met its end due to local traders. How
long will it be before Carnival Day meets that same fate?
Very soon there will be nothing other than a church and
a Heritage Centre displaying photos of what 'once was' for
visitors to Ross to see and more shops will be forced to

Thank you for your kind mention in your letter to the Ross

you attended. You did a grand job! On a 'Friends of Wyenot'

Joyce Thomas MBE DL! (Bit of a strange mixture that but
it's absolutely true.)
