Goblin of Ashfield Park Primary School
Goblin Next Door is a fun filled musical fairytale, based
in a forest setting and telling the tale of a noisy and
mischievous goblin who moves in next door to the gentle,
friendly folk of Fairy Dell. On Tuesday and Wednesday
evenings, 22nd and 23rd March, the play was performed
to parents by year three and year four children of Ashfield
Park Primary School.
are two photographs I took at the dress rehearsal, which
was performed to teachers and pupils. If you are a parent
or teacher and would like to see all of the photographs
I took that day or purchase prints, you may view them
at my on-line
gallery of the event.

A success story . . .
Five public house or accommodation businesses in the
Symonds Yat area and one in Ross-on-Wye town have approached
me during the month of March, taking up the £45 per
annum, full page advertising option on Wyenot.com and the
feedback so far has been extremely encouraging and good to
The two accommodation establishments which have so far reported
feedback both reported bookings over the Easter period as
a direct result of their new page on Wyenot.com, one of them
reporting seven Easter period bookings and having to refer
overspill, directly as a result of their new advertising page
on this web site.
you to all, in both Symonds Yat both East and West for your
word of mouth recommendations! Wyenot.com has worked both
as a community web site and as a tourist resource from the
very beginning for those who had faith, but it has taken me
five years of extremely hard work for the word to spread.
The success of this web site has not been achieved by hard
sell. I do not like pushy sales people calling on, spamming
or telephoning me and would never do that to others. Much
of my problem spreading the word in fact, can be put down
to web salesmen bombarding the area, charging extortionate
advertising costs and with no real end product. Rather, Wyenot.com's
success has been achieved by maintaining an easy to navigate
web site, which is constantly updated with interesting and
useful local information and which people want to visit
regularly. And by allowing my customers to discover the benefits
for themselves or by word of mouth recommendation.
we can make Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire and all of the local
area prosperous, not only during 2005 but for the foreseeable
future! Ross-on-Wye and the Wye Valley is a beautiful area
and people from all over the world like to visit, whether
they wish to relax and enjoy the scenery, explore the local
historic buildings or take up fishing, canoeing, horse riding
or one of the many other local activities. An extremely high
percentage of these visitors look at Wyenot.com rather than
any other local information resource before visiting! Thank
you to all of those who have supported me so far.

Head Teacher of Ashfield Park, John Williams, pictured with
Jan Taylor at his retirement party. John was presented with
several gifts, including a motorized golf trolley, digital camera,
a staff photo and numerous other items. The photograph John
has just been presented with, left is to hang in the school
but John is to be given a copy print, at the size of his choice.
At the party, teachers and friends were entertained by 'The
Bierkeller Men' and a great time was had by all.
If you were at the party and would like to see all of
the photos I took, please email
and I will send you a private link to view.
Live long and prosper, John!
An Easter Coffee Morning, enhanced by the sunny weather, was
held at Rosedale Retirement Home on Saturday, 26th March. The
event was attended by many friends and family members of the
residents as well as staff of the home. An Easter Bonnets competition
was held and the winners were: 1st - Dennis Wooding, 2nd - Marjory
Oliver and 3rd - Sally Hazelwood.
I thought it rather amusing that, on Monday last, I was called
to go and take a photograph of Ross Photographic Society. I
was a little nervous but tried my best to do a good job.
(Just Kidding - the real one is on the next page.)
