CAB Opens at The Corn Exchange

The Ross-on-Wye branch of the Citizens' Advice Bureau was officially opened by Ross Town Mayor, Councillor Derek Bedford on Thursday of last week at the Corn Exchange.

The CAB provides free information and advice to local people on a whole range of issues and is an invaluable service to the community. You can view the opening in this week's WNTV News programme.

Pictured with Mayor Bedford, who is about to cut the ribbon are Ross Town Clerk, Denise Mason, Mayoress, Mrs. Meryl Bedford, Brian Roe, Vice Chair of the Trustees, Mrs. Claire Keetch, CAB Manager, Paul Deneen, Chair of West Mercia Police Authority and founder of the initial Ross Advisory Service, along with Mrs. Joyce Thomas, MBE-DL.

Tudorville Chippy Raffle for Deep Sea Fishermen

Proprietors of Audrey's Fish Bar, Sharon and Graham Element hold a special raffle in the run up to Easter each year. For just £1 you can buy a ticket to try to win one of the two delicious prizes that you can see being held by the charitable pair.

Last year's draw raised a magnificent £408 for the Royal National Mission for Deep Sea Fishermen. Why not help them to beat that total this year. We've already got our tickets, and bags I the rabbit!.

Fantastic Show in Store for Audiences at JKHS This Week

A brilliant musical production is being staged at John Kyrle High School this week. The production shows once again just how talented the staff and pupils of the school are; not only musically but in the direction, the backstage work and the quality of the sound and lighting.

The shows performed at the school have always been resounding successes and we are expecting this one to be no different. If you would like to see the production, it is running from Thursday, 28th February until Saturday, 1st March. Please telephone the school for further details.

Football Quiz at The White Lion

Local football team Ross Junior Colts are hoping to go on tour in May, as they do each year. To help with the cost of the tour, Dave and Jacqui Newman of the White Lion Inn held a quiz night at the pub last Thursday.

As well as a fun quiz, there was a raffle held, with lots of great prizes and the evening raised a total of £113 to help the kids on their way.

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


Can you put all of the footage you filmed on to a DVD for me?

When filming for WNTV News, I always film a lot more than I actually use. This is so that I can select, edit and use the takes with fewest bloopers - or the parts of a performance which recorded the best, and every week I am asked this same question - often more than once - depending on how many different events I have covered:

'You filmed a lot more of me/us than you used. Would you mind just putting the rest of the footage on a DVD for me?'

Sounds simple, doesn't it? And with blank DVDs costing around £1.00 each, not an unreasonable request.

Unfortunately though there is no 'just' about it. To get the quality of reproduction, my camera is not a simple 'write what you take to DVD' type home movie camera. I can do this if I do it immediately but I film so often that I do not get chance. I have to delete from the camera's hard disc very frequently to stop it filling up. Every time I stop/start the camera, it produces a very large, individual video data file. Processing these files for DVD requires editing them together using the same editing software I use to produce the news. The resulting production then needs further processing through the DVD producing software and this combined process takes an absolute minimum of an hour of my time and ties up my main computer so that I can do nothing else on it while the job is running. (Processing video takes huge amounts of memory, making multitasking very unwise.)

The answer to the question is, of course: Yes I can but I will have to charge £25.00 for the time involved in producing a one-off item, which I would otherwise not have produced.
