'Grounded' - A great night at The Phoenix Theatre

A brilliant showcase of the talents of the county's young people was put on at the Phoenix Theatre in Ross on Friday. Many of the performers were familiar as we had met them before at the John Kyrle High School X-Factor finals, but there were some that we hadn't heard nefore and it was a very enjoyable evening.

Controversial Minds participated a good deal in the proceedings and the whole band performed 'Broken Home' before Dale and Lee performed the rap 'Soldier' which is on the 'Grounded' CD, the making of which all of these young people were all involved in. Becky and Sean, winners of the X-Factor final were also performing and the Mirror Kissers were very entertaining. Lofty and Lady Lyrics gave a fantastic performance of True Grit, encouraging audience participation and a good time was had by all.

Unfortunately we can't name all of the artistes in the photographs, but all did an excellent job and we wish them every success.

The event was sponsored by The Music Pool, Herefordshire Council Community Youth Service, The Phoenix Theatre, The Music Box and Newroots Youth Music Action Zone who do everything that they can to help and encourage the county's young people to develop their musical skills. Let's hope we see more of this kind of event.

Water works to cause temporary road closures

As part of works to renew and refurbish water mains in Ross-on-Wye, a series of road closures will be necessary.

The works are essential to improve the quality of water supply in Ross and, in deciding on the road closures, Herefordshire Council has drawn up a plan in consultation with town and county councillors to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.

Councillor Brian Wilcox, Herefordshire Council's Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation, said, 'We have been working closely with businesses in the town to ensure the road closures are kept to a minimum. All access to frontages will remain open as will access to car parks. We want to stress that Ross-on-Wye will be very much open for business during these works and ask people to bear with us and help keep traffic flowing by following indicated diversions.'

The roads closures will be as follows:

April 7: Smallbrook Road for two weeks
April 21: Chase Road closed for one week
April 28: Copse Cross Street and High Street (part) for two weeks
May 12: Station Street and Broad Street junction closed for three days

Welsh Water Capital Manager Peter Childs said, 'This scheme is vital to ensure that our customers continue to receive a top quality and reliable supply of water direct to their taps. We would like to assure customers and businesses that work to upgrade the water mains in the area will be done with the least amount of disruption as possible to their water supplies.'

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
