to the 100th Issue of Wyenot News!
Welcome to the 100th edition of 'Wyenot News'! The
100th edition should actually have been published last week
but in June last year I missed publishing an issue, due
to the death of my Mother. Coincidentally, Mum died exactly
one year ago today, 13th June. Also
coincidentally, I am probably going to have to miss a second
issue next week but this is for an altogether happier reason
- I am simply going away for a few days and as yet, my News
Editing Fairy Godmother has not shown up.
'Wyenot News' itself has only been running for 100
issues, 'Wyenot News' is only a name and 'Wyenot.com'
has in fact been publishing Ross-on-Wye news to the world
since the beginning of Millennium year. I spent the Millennium
New Year's Eve with my family in Essex and London, where
the fireworks sounded like World War III, so I did not cover
the Ross Market House celebrations that particular year.
The first event covered by 'Wyenot' was in fact 'Gala
Day', in May 2000.
hope you have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy reading
'Wyenot News' regularly. If you don't enjoy
reading it, I hope you at least like looking at the pictures.
With schools relying heavily on computer technology these
days, I see the internet as the future for local news. Ross-on-Wye
has at least a six year head start over most other towns
in this respect, with its own regular news magazine which
is read by thousands of people, every week - all around

transit of the planet, Venus across the disc of the sun, as seen
from Ross, took place on 8th June 2004. The last time this phenomenon
occurred was in 1882, so those of us who observed it were the first
humans alive to have seen such an event. This is how it looked from
Hillview Road, Ross-on-Wye.

Gloucester & 1st Walford Cub Scouts Camp
Cubs from the 41st Gloucester & 1st Walford packs held a
combined camp in Walford on 9th, 10th & 11th June to celebrate
the 90th birthday of Cub Scouts.
Groups have shared a successful camp in the past. The theme
of this year's camp was based around 90 years of Cub Scouts,
and the group attempted various challenges relating to this.
Also included were traditional scouting skills, games and
activities relating to nature conservation. Some
of these activities counted towards the Cubs gaining badges.
