Ross Juniors Football Tournament 2006
a dreadful forecast the weather was kind to Ross Junior
Football Club for their annual six-a-side tournament which
was held on Saturday 20th May. Over 300 children between
the ages of seven and twelve enjoyed the event which drew
44 teams from Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. Some
excellent football was played in a competitive, fair and
sporting manner and was well supported by family and friends..
of the finalists received trophies whilst all of the under
sevens who took part received a medal.
committee would like to thank everyone who supported the
day by sponsoring the event or for the hard work that
was put in beforehand and on the day itself. A special
thank you goes to the Mighty 8 for sponsoring the trophies
and for supporting the teams throughout the season.

Dear Mr Wood
are considering moving to Herefordshire in search of beautiful
countryside, friendly people and a slower pace of life than
has evolved here in East Sussex over the 13 years we have
been here. We hope to find a village which will welcome
us and our two children, 4 and 5, into the community and
local school and country lanes which we can actually wander
along without fear of being mown down by a 4-wheel drive!!
Are we likely to find all this around Ross-on-Wye?
couple close to my own heart! Herefordshire is a lovely
place and has some beautiful and extremely welcoming villages.
I recommend Symonds Yat West and Goodrich Primary School.
Unfortunately though, I don't think there is a single place
in the whole of the UK where you will be free of the dangers
of being mown down by a four wheel drive vehicle. Here in
Herefordshire, most have bull bars fitted so that when you
do get mown down, it hurts more.
this mode of transport is an absolute essential for the
middle class housewife-conservationist needing to transport
bottles to the bottle bank or to go shopping for organic
onions and disposable nappies. In Ross-on-Wye, the supermarket
provides special parking facilities for such vehicles. These
are clearly marked by green tarmac and 'mother and toddler'
in Herefordshire, we get half an inch of snow every decade
or so. Even my boys have experienced snow once and they
are only in their early twenties, so the four wheel drive
is an absolute necessity, I'm afraid.
owning one myself though has long been a source of embarrassment.
I wear a black hoodie when I go out in my Ford Escort. This
overcomes the problem of being recognized in a vehicle with
only half of the pulling power. My two boys have left school
and Sarah (15) walks, except when it's raining heavily.
In which case I drop her at the tradesman's entrance, thus
Jay, Amanda and The Prince of Wales
of Wales has recently changed hands and on Saturday
20th May, proud new landlords Jay and Amanda Hill held
an official opening party. There was some excellent live
music performed at this well attended event by band 'Lemon
Wednesday' and a draw was held later in the evening for
Children in Need.
and Amanda, with the assistance of staff Iain Sandison
and Linda intend to turn the pub into a good, all round
family pub, providing some excellent home cooked food
using local produce, as well as introducing a few international
flavours. There will be a special children's menu available
of the changes that regular customers will notice is that
the Prince of Wales pub is now open all day. There will
be regular musical events both in the bar and in the function
room and there will also be regular quiz nights. Jay hopes
to install a large screen in the function room for special
sports events, so that sports fans don't miss out on the
of Wales has a darts team and a pool team, however,
Jay and Amanda would like to hear from anybody who is
interested in forming another darts team or in making
up a skittles team.
advertising page for the Prince
of Wales will be updated to reflect this change very
soon. In the meantime, we at Wyenot News wish the couple
every success with their new venture.
