Santa Makes an Early Stop in Ross-on-Wye

A very warm welcome awaited Santa when he made a pre-Christmas visit to Ross-on-Wye on Saturday, 16th December. Many hundreds of children and their parents lined the streets to greet him as he arrived at Ross Market House, accompanied by Cat in a Hat, some of his helpers and the Carnival Princess, Paige Neville.

After the Mayor of Ross, Councillor Phil Cutter and his wife, Chris had given Santa an official greeting from the towns folk of Ross, Santa happily posed for a few photographs and chatted to many of the children who had turned out to see him.

The children are so good in Ross-on-Wye that Santa pays a visit to the town every year to give them an extra Christmas present. I am sure that all the children in the town would like to join me in saying a big thank you to Santa and the Christmas Carnival Committee of Elves, who work overtime just before Santa's busiest period of the year.

Two days before Santa's visit, The Christmas Carnival Committee of Elves went to the Larruperz Centre, where they helped Santa by packing 1,100 presents ready for him to give to the children of Ross-on-Wye.

Christmas Lights Next Week

I am aware that I said I would try to cover the rest of the Christmas lights on houses this week but as you can see by the amount of photos in this week's issue of Wyenot News, I have been extremely busy. With this, that and the other, I did not get a moment spare to get out there.

I promise to try to cover them this week and will run them in next Wednesday's edition, 27th December.

Important: This is just not the usual 'click to get it out of the way' thing.
