ROSS CARNIVAL WILL GO AHEAD AS PLANNED!

Ross Town Carnival 2007 will go ahead as planned this coming Saturday, despite rumours that it was going to be cancelled. The bigger than ever procession will make its way through the town and down to the riverside as usual. However, due to the recent flooding the rest of the carnival activities will be sited at Wilton Road car park.

On Monday, Ross Fire Brigade operated a flooding exercise down on the river bank, pumping 600 gallons of flood water an hour back into the river Wye. The Fire Brigade always take an active part in Ross Carnival and were only too happy to see if they could help the event take place on the usual site. After a site meeting with Herefordshire Council, however and due to and some of the water seeping back onto the site by the evening it was decided to use the alternative venue for this year's event.

Although disappointed at not being able to hold the carnival on the river bank, Carnival Chairman, Mel Hodges and the rest of the Carnival Committee have put public safety and comfort first and promise a great day out for all the family at Wilton car park. We look forward to seeing you there.

WNTV: Ross Firemen pump floodwater from the carnival field on Monday

This short film shows Ross firemen pumping floodwater from the Carnival Field on Monday afternoon. With the smell of stagnant water in the air and much water remaining though, the Carnival venue has had to be changed. The event will now take place in Wilton Car Park.

THE WYENOT NEWS DEADLINE

The absolute deadline for Wyenot News stories and other items is 12:00, midday on Tuesday, for inclusion in the following day's edition.

PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: This is an absolute deadline and not the time I am asking for articles to be sent in. Mondays and Tuesdays here at 'Wyenot News' are Hell with by far, the most events I cover occurring at the weekend. The photography that the public sees happening is only one tiny part of the whole picture (please excuse the pun) of running this weekly news publication and the bits of prep that people do not see, are actually the most time consuming part of getting the story out.

If at all possible, please send your story in as early as you can, rather than wait until the very last minute, so that I can have at least a fighting chance of getting to bed before 3:00 am every Tuesday and Wednesday morning after what has lately become two 18 hour working days on the trot.

Thank you very much for your understanding and help.

Alan
