December at Ross Heritage Centre
 


Ross Lions 'Tree of Memories' at the Heritage Centre.


Ross Market House is building up to Christmas, extending the exhibition by local artists until at least mid December. Doug Eaton, Jerry Whitehouse, Lawrence Hughes, Humphrey Stanley and Rex Foley are exhibiting a variety of art works to suit all tastes with both paintings and prints for sale. This exhibition has been extended to enable visitors and local people alike to purchase something different for Christmas.

Cards for Good Causes have set up their tables, and will once again be selling Christmas Cards, Gift Wrap and Calendars until Saturday 11th December. The first week has once again been very popular, so if you wish to purchase your cards it is best to call in as soon as possible.

Thursday, 2nd December will see the Market House open until 7 pm for viewing the exhibitions and for sales of gifts and books. This evening will coincide with the towns late night opening, enabling people who work to shop and visit the centre. Another chance for late night Christmas shopping will occur on Saturday, 18th December until 6pm. Father Christmas and his helpers will be in Ross on this occasion to visit the Market House and meet local children.

During December the Centre will be holding a fun quiz for the whole family, over the holiday period. Question sheets will be available from the Heritage Centre desk, the Ross Gazette or Ross Recorder. Prizes will be awarded to the first two correct answer sheets opened after the closing date of 31st December. This is a free competition open to all agegroups.

Further information on all forthcoming events and exhibitions at the Heritage Centre can be obtained by visiting or telephoning 01432 260675 during opening hours - 10.30 am to 4 pm Monday to Saturday. (Closed for lunch between 1 pm and 1:30 pm.)

I am looking for someone called Ernest Cecil Winter. He was lodging at 10, Greytree Road during the early 1940s. Also at The Crofts in 1948. He worked on ther railway during this time.

Many thanks.

Maria

Before you do that however . . .

Original Potters Bar Music - recordings of the original juke box records!
At least one original barman - less hair than in those days but will wear a hat to hide it!
Even those who were under age are welcome - You must be old enough by now!
