Updating the 'What's On?' page for 2008
Please send in your event ASAP

With this being a hectic time and the news having taken up a lot of prep time, we have not had time to sort out the 'What's On?' page as yet. This will be updated over the next few days.

If you have an event coming up at any time during 2008, please send in your 'What's On?' information as soon as possible - preferably by yesterday. The 'What's On?' service is free and the longer your fate, fayre, coffee morning, special church service, music gig, play, pantomime, dance, welly wanging competition, dog show, charity fund-raiser, what-have-you is publicized on the page - the more people will see it and know about it to turn it into a successful event.

The 'What's On?' page is one of the most visited pages on the whole of and Wyenot News, and visitors to the town use it a lot when planning their holiday.

As this is a free service though, please just send in Date, Event, Venue and Start Time info as I do not have the time to decipher billboard posters to extract this info. Thank you.

Carols, bagpipes and lunch for the elderly on Christmas Day

Ross Lions held their annual lunch for the elderly at Ross Ryefield Centre on Christmas Day. Having cooked a turkey overnight for our family Christmas lunch, I left Tina and her son, Mike in charge of cooking the veg and went along to the event on behalf of 'Wyenot News'.

The atmosphere at Christmas Day lunch is always great and this year was no exception. Ross branch of the New Life Church happened to be holding their service in the room next door and came along, giving an impromptu performance of Christmas carols. 5 year old, Ruth Bradford sang a verse of 'Away in a Manger' solo, which the guests and helpers alike loved. After the choir, Alan Harrison played Christmas carols on the bagpipes and all in all, a lovely time was had by all.

This event is also covered in this week's WNTV News programme.
