Archive Film: The Y2K Ross-on-Wye Flood

Following my coverage of the flood of two weeks ago, I thought readers might like a reminder of how bad the flood situation was on 8th December 2000.

Although I have shown some of this footage before (and, in fact over 300 people downloaded that clip from the 'Wyenot News' server within the past two weeks) this is virtually the whole uncut footage I took on that day, with the real sound, rather than a background of music. I have shortened just a few scenes to fit the film into 10 minutes but other than that, there is no editing at all.

The quality is not brilliant as it is pre digital and I used analogue 8mm (Super 8) tape of the period, which was transferred to video tape and has lost quality over time. (Although my original film is much higher quality than this highly compressed broadcast version.)

The film was made during the final days of the period during which I was still building '' - 20 days before the site was launched officially, on 1st January 2001. It is one of two bits of film I recorded but did not use at the time. The other was the 2000 Carnival, which I shall run on another occasion soon, as carnival day is fast approaching.

Hannah Celebrates her 30th with a Toga Party

The function room at the Prince of Wales was absolutely packed on Saturday evening with friends helping Hannah Lerego to celebrate her thirtieth birthday with a toga party and what a great success it was. The birthday girl looked beautiful in her 'Medusa' outfit and was very hospitable, inviting me to take whatever photographs I wanted. Hannah happily posed for the first photograph in front of a lovely mural that her friend, Fay Winchester had painted for her and all of the guests, many of which we know personally, looked absolutely fabulous, as you will see from the photographs below.
