10th May 2012 HAIR RAZORING EXPERIENCE FOR WETHERSPOONS STAFF

I have to say that I find the current staff at Wetherspoons in Ross-on-Wye a nice team of young people; polite, friendly and game for a laugh. On meeting two of the staff in town one evening I was informed that on Mothering Sunday, Matt, who had pretty wild hair at the time was going to have it all shaved off and his colleague, Ryan was to have his chest waxed in aid of Wetherspoons chosen charity, Clic Sargeant, which raises money for sick children.

Needless to say, on Mothers' Day I hurried up to the Mail Rooms to photograph the event and staff and customers gathered round the brave duo, cheering them on as they nervously awaited their fate. Thanks to the generosity of 'Spoons customers, the boys' ordeal raised £250 for the charity. Well done Matt and Ryan!

'What have I let myself in for?' Matt appears to be thinking.

Ryan just knows that this one is going to hurt!

Job Done! Well done Matt and Ryan.

10th May 2012 A TASTE OF REAL CIDER & PERRY COMES TO SPOONS

Regulars to Wetherspoons were recently treated to a 'Meet the Cider Makers' cider and perry tasting evening at The Mail Rooms when Ross Cider and Perry Co and Swallowfields took along a good range of their produce for them to try. Visitors to the cider makers were given tasters of various ciders and perries, ranging from bitter sweet to medium dry to dry and the producers were happy to talk about how all this fine work is done.

I did find some of the ciders were very smooth and did not taste as strong as they actually were. Perhaps the names 'Headless Man' and 'Wonkey Donkey' should have given me a little clue? It was a most enjoyable evening though and I am looking forward to meeting the cider makers again in the not too distant future.


Phil and Mike of Ross Cider & Perry Co meet with Swallowfields to give the Mail Rooms customers a taste of real cider and perry.
