Naming the Owls

In the Spring of this year, young visitors to the National Birds of Prey Centre at Newent were given the opportunity to name the Centre's newest arrivals. The theme for the competition was historical names and places and the prizes were awarded last Tuesday, 31st May. Below, the winners of the competition are pictured, along with the young owls they named.

Wye Valley Transport Interest Group


In October of the year 2000, a number of people who shared an interest in transport met to look at the possibility of forming a group to bring together others of a like mind. As result of this meeting the Wye Valley Transport Interest Group was formed. It was decided to hold monthly meetings and arrange occasional outings with a transport theme. The group has met regularly since then and considered a wide range of subjects all associated with transport.

The current membership, which numbers around 30, consists of both men and women, many of whom are or have been connected with the transport industry in their employment, whilst others have a hobby based on this theme or simply a general interest. It has become obviously that there is a whole wealth of experience and knowledge within the group resulting in certain members giving talks ranging from aircraft to Bedford vehicles; from bridges to owning a car dealership; from canals to railways. Speakers from outside the group have spoken on such matters as Stagecoach (the bus operator), motor racing, Bristol trams and British motorcycles.

Group visits have been made to the Crich Tramway Museum in Derbyshire and the Science Museum at Wroughton near Swindon. On 18th June the group is taking a coach trip to the Anderton Boat Lift and visiting the Salt Museum at Northwich in Cheshire.

Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month, excepting August and December, commencing at 7.30 pm in St Mary's Hall, which is opposite the parish church in Ross-on-Wye. There is a small charge of 1.00 for each meeting, which includes light refreshments. Membership is 10.00 per year and this enables us to invite visiting speakers and cover their expenses. All meetings are open to non-members and we are always pleased to see visitors.

If you would like further information and details of the remaining meetings for 2005, please contact Vincent Tweed on Ross (01989) 564726.
