August Storms Flood Brookend Street Again

Heavy rain storms caused flash flooding in Brookend Street again on Friday, 18th August adding to local concern about delay with the implementation of the Ross Flood Alleviation Scheme. Friday's flood problem was added to by a burst water main in New Street. I have to say that I got a little damp whilst taking these photos but, as can be seen by the reflection in the antique shop window, second photograph below, I still considered Friday a day for wearing shorts and sandals. After all, it is August!

Severe storms have been something of a problem this week with houses in Woodedge, Tudorville being struck by lightning on Thursday afternoon, blowing electricity sockets from walls and damaging electrical equipment.




This Week at Ross Live! 2006

Ross Live! 2006 began on Saturday, 12th August with a programme of varied events which drew to a conclusion with a performance of The Dragon of Wantley by J F Lampe at St. Mary's Church on Saturday, 19th August.

Below are photographs of some of this week's street events, which included a workshop of rap music, provided by Jenny Smith and Lofty of 'Dub Merge' on Monday and a performance by 'The Swamp Men', Dave Harper, Tony O'Hare and Dave Haynes at Ross Market on Tuesday.

Japanese Virtuoso Violinist, Ken Aiso and Steinway Young Pianist, Simon Crawford-Phillips can be seen prior to their performance at Ross Baptist Church on Wednesday, 16th August. The duo performed Sonata No 9 in A Major for violin and piano Op 47 'Kreutzer' by Ludwig Van Beethoven, Violin Sonata No 3 Op 25 ('dans le caractere populaire roumain') by George Enescu and Scherzo in C by Johannes Brahms. I was unable to attend the actual performance due to other commitments but I listened during the afternoon rehearsal and the music was beautiful.
