Cinderella Goes to the Ball at Sellack Village Hall

Sellack and Kings Caple Players put on a fine production of the pantomime Cinderella on Friday, 2nd and Saturday, 3rd March in Sellack Village Hall. At one time the players regularly held events like this, but they took a break for about three years. Now they are back and they had such fun that they are already planning next year's pantomime

To their delight, ticket sales far exceeded their expectations and the profits from these are to be shared between Sellack Village Hall and the County Air Ambulance.

I went along to take a photograph before Friday's performance. In the front row, from left to right are: Alan Ripley, fairy, Janet Barnfield, Splashit and John Haines as Baron Hardup. In the back row are Ugly Sisters Gareth Barnfield and Matt Ripley, Prince Charming - Sue Lewis, the Page - Rose Kibble and Dandini, played by Angela Williams.

Nature Watch

This particular swan and its mate have been swimming around the Wilton area for months now. I am not sure but I think it may have broken its leg at some stage - either that or it is a practising contortionist. It seems happy though and always, without fail, swims up close to greet me when I walk by the river with my camera, so I don't think it can be in any pain.

Rain Clouds

We have seen a lot of rain cloud here in Ross-on-Wye over the past week or so. Saturday was more a day of showers and hazy sunshine though, which left reasonable but not absolutely perfect viewing opportunities for the night time lunar eclipse. There was considerable atmospheric haze. I thought the cloud below, which I noticed whilst walking the dog on Saturday afternoon made quite a good photo. I could have tarted it up a bit by brightening Wilton Bridge itself but decided against doing so as it gives an eerie feel to the picture.

Judging by the way it has rained for the past two days, I suspect some quite heavy flooding will follow. The first few hours of today (Monday) were sunny but the rain has been constant and heavy since mid morning. Sunday was pretty much heavy rain all day.
