Heart of England in Bloom Judges Visit Ross

The Heart of England in Bloom judges received a very warm welcome to Ross-on-Wye on Tuesday from Ross Town Councillors, Ross Town Mayor, Councillor John Davies and, of course, the hard working Ross-in-Bloom committee. The judges, Les Goodman and David Wassell were shown around various parts of the town, including the site of the recently discovered Roman Remains in the Prospect Gardens.

The judges seemed to be very impressed with what they saw, but weren't giving anything away. We shall just have to wait and see, but I think that the Ross-in-Bloom team and the members of the community who got involved did Ross-on-Wye proud. Fingers crossed!!

In the first of this series of photographs are the welcoming committee: Councillor Gordon Lucas, Mrs. Peggy Luker, Lyn Tomlinson of Ross-in-Bloom, judge Les Goodman, Ross Town Mayor, Councillor John Davies, judge David Wassell, Mayoress Hannah Davies, Mrs. Joyce Thomas MBE-DL and Councillor John Edwards.

Dave and Jacqui Newman would like to welcome you to the White Lion 16th Century Riverside Inn. Situated right on the banks of the River Wye at Ross, the White Lion is a picturesque local inn with an interesting history and is noted for its spectacular river views. The White Lion has long been a favourite place to relax by both local people and tourists alike.

The White Lion's extensive and picturesque gardens reach right down to the river's edge and are a wonderful place to enjoy views of the river. It is a great spot to watch the local otters, nesting swans and other wildlife.

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
