Santa's Spectacular Arrival

As crowds of people eagerly awaited Santa's arrival on Saturday afternoon, they were treated to an excellent performance by local theatrical group, X-entricity of songs from well known musicals.

Meanwhile, in Brookend Street, local Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Brownies and the Phoenix Majorettes waited excitedly for Santa to arrive, so that they could escort him by torchlight up to the Market House.

After visiting all the children in Ross, Santa went to visit those unfortunate enough to be spending Christmas in hospital. I hitched a ride on his sleigh and followed him round the wards of Ross Cottage Hospital. After he had finished delivering a present to all of the patients, who were happy to see him, he posed in the reception area for a photograph with his helpers.

Christmas Coffee Morning For St. Michael's Hospice

A very successful coffee morning was held at Ross Baptist Church on Saturday 16th December by the Ross Support Group for St. Michael's Hospice.

Various stalls attracted visitors to this event, including a Teddy Bear stall. On this stall there were hand knitted teddy jumpers for sale that were made by Nell Badger who happens to be a mere 94 years of age!. There were also several delicious cakes for sale, which were baked and iced by Sue Kirby. As well as lots of small cakes, Sue made two large ones, one of which was won in the raffle by Betty Tye.
