Tina and I were out with the Carnival on Saturday - me photographing
and Tina joining in - Hereford and Ross Journal photographer,
Andy Compton caught us with his camera. The photo he took
can be seen to the left.
I got you back Andy. By way of retaliation, you feature
in our photomotion film, which
can be watched here, :) along with Ross Lions and the
Lions were out in force on Saturday in support
of this year's Ross-on-Wye Carnival. The Lions ran ten activities
throughout the day. There was a mixture of things to do
for all the family and a range of children's' activities,
all free. The culmination was, of course, the annual Lions
were skittles, ably controlled by the Ross Youth Lions,
Play Your Cards Right and Crazy Golf, as well as the fantastically
successful Bottle Stall. Children could choose from Face
Painting, Pottery, Games, Make Your Own Crown and a Colouring
Competition, all free.
both children and grown-ups there were free drinks, tea,
coffee and squash. The Lions raised about £1250 from the
grown-up activities but it was just as important to provide
fun for all the children.
he is so popular with children it was a great shame that
Uncle Jack had to be cancelled because of the wet ground.
Duck Race was the final event of the Carnival. The winner
(£150) was James Mortimer from Chiswick, second (£100) was
Mike from the Forest of Dean and Third (£50) was Mia Wood
