Mayor Lights Up Ross for Christmas
official switching on of Ross-on-Wye town centre's Christmas
lights took place at 4:45 pm on Friday 24th November. Despite
the cold, damp weather, many people turned out to watch
the switching on ceremony which was performed by Ross Town
Mayor, Councillor Phil Cutter. Well done, Phil. You and
your team have done a great job, as always!
from the switching on of the festive lights, spectators
were treated to a selection of carols which were beautifully
sung by the Hereford Cathedral Junior Choir who battled
through a long traffic delay in order to give their performance.
Baptist Church also played a big part in this event and
gave a terrific puppet performance, which began with Rocking
Around the Christmas Tree which everybody thoroughly enjoyed.
to Tim Shelley of Ross Baptist Church for taking over the
movie camera and filming the puppet show. I have had a look
and you did a grand job. I will look into the music copyright
issue and if your license covers it, I will run the film
on WNTV soon. If not, I will put it onto a DVD for you to
show at the church.
below are some of the scenes from the evening. I will get
out over the next week and photograph the lights properly,
in all their glory. I would have done it over the weekend
but there were so many events to cover on Friday, Saturday
and Sunday that I just did not get the chance. As soon as
the lit up houses start to appear, I'll capture some of
those also. Stand by to be dazzled!

view of Broad Street. The ghostly green is light shining on droplets
of moisture in the air due to the long exposure. The trails in the
road are car lights for the same reason. The long, small aperture
exposure is also why the streets look void of people. They were
moving too quickly to get picked up. How to make a busy place look
like a ghost town! Ref: DSC_9557
