Hundreds welcome in the New Year at Ross Market . . .

Hundreds, possibly thousands of revellers gathered at Ross Market House on Monday evening to welcome in the New Year. The crowd was well behaved and as usual, the 'Wyenot News' cameras were in action capturing the moment, this time with television as well as the usual stills.

As always, I was mobbed by people wanting to appear on the news and have included as many of you as I can. Operating both TV and stills cameras at the same time proved difficult in such a crowded place, so I did not take as many stills as usual.

I always begin to feel a little despondent with 'Wyenot News' and life in general as Christmas approaches - it's a dark nights thing - SAD syndrome but as always, New Year's Eve makes me realize just how popular Wyenot has become locally. We had a great time filming and snapping you all. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and that the hangovers were not too severe!

The New Year's Eve celebrations are also featured in this week's WNTV News programme.

. . . and in the White Lion and the Prince of Wales

The White Lion was packed out on New Year's Eve as the pubs regulars met up for a great party. Some of the guests turned up in fancy dress. Peter Andre came as Christo Kotze and Jordan turned up dressed as the lovely Ave. There was no disguising those assets though, was there Ave? Ricky provided the entertainment with his disco and landlady, Jacqui and staff laid on some great food. Jacqui has not been well during the season and she had already gone to bed by the time we arrived. We hope you are feeling better now Jacqui. All in all everybody seemed to be having a great time and after a quick dance with Ave, we left them to enjoy the rest of the party whilst we went up to see what was happening at the Prince of Wales.

Solo artiste, Simon Blight provided the entertainment at the Prince and it was going down very well. Jay and Amanda had laid on some lovely food and we met neighbours Jeanette and Chris. Another quick dance, then it was off to the Market House to record the vast crowds welcoming in the New Year. Sorry we couldn't stay for very long Jay, but thank you for inviting us and we will see you again soon. We just thought you'd like to know that Andy Margrett will be playing at The Prince, this coming Saturday, 5th January from 9pm.

The highlight of my New Year's Eve actually came as I was leaving the White Lion Inn. As I walked ahead of Tina to the car, a large otter walked out of the river and sat on the bank watching me. I have been waiting to film a local otter out of the water for ages and could see his eyes following me in the dark, right up to my reaching the car. I opened the boot quietly to get out the infra red camera but guess what? As I turned to face him, he ran off before I could get it fired up.

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
