A FAREWELL GIG FOR ROSS-ON-WYE'S FAB FOUR!
BOXING DAY - PRINCE OF WALES

Ross-on-Wye's 'Fab Four', John, Paul, Steve and Dingo have decided to call it a day as 'The Zebras'. They will be moving on to music projects new - Paul will be recording his first solo album, John has joined 'Dad Rock' and Steve and Dingo (who usually goes by his given name of Dylan these days) are going for 'the Metal'. The good news though is that they are going to reunite as a foursome and perform one last gig, at the Prince of Wales on Boxing Day. If you think Hyde Park was packed for the Floyd last summer, watch the Prince of Wales on Boxing Day! There will be at least a dozen people there - hysterical teenage girls screaming and everything - and that doesn't even include the band!

It would be really nice if all Zebras fans everywhere - and those who have never seen them before, of course were to come along and give them a good send-off before they embark upon their projects new. And it will be much more fun than sitting at home stuffing more turkey and mince pies with Aunt Maud! (Spam in my case - I've bulk purchased two tins and a bottle of Tizer for Christmas lunch, so we're really in for a splendid day!)

There will be a great light show and WNTV will be there to film the event - some of which will be broadcast along with the New Year revellers on 2nd January's 'Wyenot News', so practise your dancing skills beforehand. You will have a world wide audience! (Well at least - as far away as Tudorville in one direction and Three Crosses Road in the other.)

Unfortunately, this event will not generate the Christmas 'Tina Dancing' movie as she has to work on Boxing Day - that will probably be filmed over the New Year. Tina is particularly sad to be missing the gig as she used to play in the band with Paul but she wants you all to go along and have a great time, and you'll probably hear her cheering the band on and wishing them well from as far away as the White Lion.

Tina and I both wish the Zebras well and I am looking forward to seeing you all there!

Ross Lions Supporting Local Schools

The Ross on Wye Lions recently asked local schools for a wish list, as they wanted to support local schools. Seven schools responded to the invitation with requests for items ranging up to five hundred pounds. Ashfield Park was the first of these schools to receive funding from the Lions. Keep watching Wyenot News to find out how other schools have benefited too.

During 2006, Ashfield Primary School suffered from a flood which damaged not only the walls of the building, but many of the books too. Insurance paid for the repair of the building which has just been finished. However, Head Teacher, Mrs. Hines, had to restock the books from other sources.

The wish list from the Ross Lions came at just the right time. This week, in front of up to a hundred children at assembly, a cheque for 400 was presented to Mrs. Hines by Ross Lions President, Keith Wilding, who said that helping young children was one of the main aims of the Lions. He was delighted to give the school the money and passed on the good wishes of his club members.

Lion Wilding then commented on what a lovely area the library was, being so light and comfortable; just the right ambience to do research and read in comfort. Head Teacher Mrs Hines thanked the Lions for their generosity and explained the procedures of how the library was run.

All book titles are put on the computer and a record of all books borrowed taken. This tells staff what books are most popular and read most, helping staff decide what books should be bought. The school is right up to date as when books are borrowed the children have to give a thumb print instead of signing for them. This makes things much easier for children and staff.

Goodrich School have also benefited from the Wish List and have taken delivery of an electronic drum kit, which you can see in action on this week's WNTV News.

The Next Edition of Wyenot News

Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday this year, which is our main news prep day and I have been given strict orders from 'er on the business end of the television camera, 'You will not be spending Christmas Day prepping the weekly news!' I quite agree. We have not had a holiday, or even a weekend away this year need to spend at least some time drinking mulled wine/cider together, stuffing our faces and blowing smoke rings with exotic pipe weed (cherry flavoured 'Borkum Riff' from the Butter Market, Hereford).

This year, we shall be taking the unprecedented step of not publishing an issue of 'Wyenot News' between Christmas and the New Year. I shall still cover events photographically, including those which take place on on Christmas day but shall not run them until the 2nd January 2008 edition.

The next issue of 'Wyenot News' will be published on
Wednesday, January 2nd 2008.
