As the usual Ross-on-Wye Gala Day did not take place this year, Mary Sinclair-Powell of Ross Heritage Centre and Jo Ashman of Halcyon Daze came to the rescue by arranging an Arts and Crafts Day at the Market House and Gordon Lucas arranged a Vintage Motorcycle Display in 'The Maltings'. It is nice to see that some people are still willing to try to keep a community spirit going in Ross-on-Wye by putting on these events. By the way, whatever happened to the pancake races on Shrove Tuesday and other regular events like 'It's a Knockout?' It would be nice to see some of these events return.

I have spread my photographs of today's 'Arts and Crafts Day' over three pages. On this page you can see woodworking and spinning going on in the Market House, Chloe Cook, who sang 'Donalogue,' an Irish folk song and 'Free Bird,' a Lynard Skynard' song unaccompanied and beautifully as well as Mel Hodges, who kept the day going with commentary and music. Belly Dancers, 'Jawahir' and the 'Flying Carpet Percussion Group' can be seen on page two and on page three you can see the Maltings Motorcycle exhibition, along with Doug Eaton and his art plus some of the other exhibitors. I hope you enjoy looking at this record of the day's events.

Those of you who have seen me photographing at local events will be well aware that I have taken many more photographs than published on the pages of this web site. Over the past four years, I have taken well in excess of twenty seven thousand photographs of Ross-on-Wye, so if you cannot see what you are looking for on the site and I was at the event, chances are I will have what you are looking for recorded.
