Ross Christmas Lights are switched on

Friday saw the switching on of Ross town's Christmas lights by Mayor, Councillor Derek Bedford and despite the awful weather quite a few people turned up to listen to the local choir singing carols and Ross Town Band playing some lovely Christmas songs for the occasion.

This year a children's ride had been arranged but due to the dreadful weather, not many children got to take advantage of it. It was a lovely thought though. Maybe next year the weather will be kinder.

It was nice to see Marie and her burger stall there too, as well as a chocolate fountain at Thornton's Chocolates. Other shops also got into the festive spirit by staying open late. Apart from the awful weather it was an enjoyable event.

Christmas lights are extremely important to a tourist town like Ross and Herefordshire Council cutting their funding for Ross town Christmas lights after this year is just another sign that Ross seems to be the poor relation among the Herefordshire towns.

More of this story can be watched in this week's WNTV News.

Last Apple Pressing of 2007

Saturday morning saw the last apple pressing of 2007 at Broome Farm and as I had expressed an interest in having a go at this myself, I took advantage of Phil Long's invitation to go along and join in.

After donning some very fetching (protective) attire, I was introduced to John, who showed me how to go about the apple pressing business. I enjoyed the work but my arms ached a little afterwards.

Thank you John and Phil for giving me the chance to see how it is done. Hopefully you will let me further my education next season.

More of this story can be watched in this week's WNTV News.

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
