Millie is the 2007 Carnival Princess!

The new 2007 Carnival Princess was chosen at the Larruperz Centre on a very wet Sunday afternoon and Millie White was chosen to take on the role by judges, Gordon and Margaret Lucas and Lynne Tomlinson. Millie's attendants will be Susan Yaldiz (left) and Corvey White (right).

All of the entrants will be taking part on the Carnival Princess float on Carnival day, which takes place this year on Saturday, 4th August.

Absinthe at the Prince of Wales

There were not that many people in to watch Absinthe at the Prince of Wales last Saturday, which is a real shame because most people who did go thought that Absinthe were one of the better bands to have performed at the venue.

The young trio did make a few mistakes but on the whole I thought they were brilliant! A lot of the music they played was stuff I personally enjoy - including some Rory Gallagher tracks, which reminded me of my younger days, when Rory used to play the Dagenham Roundhouse.

It was a quiet weekend around town in general last Saturday but those who missed Absinthe missed a great evening. There will be another chance to see in the near future. 'We definitely need to book them back,' said a very happy landlord and landlady, Jay and Amanda! I'll go along with that.

Penyard Singers Concert for Macmillan

The Penyard Singers and the Penyard Chamber Orchestra held a spring concert in aid of the Macmillan Renton Appeal on Saturday, 28th April, which spanned thirteen years of the classical period, from 1802 to 1815. The musical director was Tony Washington.

The singers and orchestra provided a most enjoyable evening of a varied programme to suit all tastes. a mixed voice chamber choir providing an opportunity for people of any age and experience to sing together.

All concerts are for charity or community projects and on Thursday, 10th May, a cheque for £500 was handed to Mrs. Joyce Thomas MBE DL at Ross Heritage Centre. Mrs. Thomas is Patron of Macmillan in Ross-on-Wye.

Meet the Conservative members of Ross Town Council

Last week I published a photograph of the Liberal Democrat members of Ross Town Council. At the time I had not had the opportunity to photograph the Conservative members but that opportunity arose on Monday evening at the Mayor Making Ceremony.

To redress the balance, pictured left to right are Conservative Councillors Harry Bramer, Phil Cutter, Jenny Hyde, Gordon Lucas and David Ravenscroft. Please note that 'Wyenot News' does not favour any one political party.
