Support Ross Phoenix Majorettes and Win a Year's Advertising on Wyenot.com

Since their triumphant return from the 2005 National Championships, Ross Phoenix Majorettes have been very busy trying to raise funds to finance their attempt to become European Champions in Italy later this year. They have been bag packing in the supermarket and organizing various events to raise the necessary cash. The Majorettes are still some way off their target at the moment and we at Wyenot News would like to help them on their way.

More and more people are advertising on Wyenot.com now and out of all those who advertised last year, not one has declined to renew, so during the next two weeks, Tina will be visiting as many shops and businesses in Ross as possible selling raffle tickets. These tickets will cost £1 each and will be entered into a draw. The draw for the winning ticket will be made on Carnival day and the prize will be one year's free advertising on Wyenot.com. All money raised by this raffle will go towards the Majorettes fund-raising campaign.

Walford School Story Competition

Winners of the Walford Summer Fete Writing Competition were presented with certificates during a special assembly at school on Monday, 11th July. Judges Jan Nesaratnam and Joan Robertshaw of Ross Library were impressed by the high standard of the entries. All entries received a 'Highly Commended' certificate and the winners were presented with both a Winners certificate and a Jacqueline Wilson book. All winning entries were read by Jacqueline Wilson, the current Children's Laureate and author of the popular Tracy Beaker series, which has been dramatized for children's television. Jacqueline wrote to the winning children individually, about their work.

The winners were: Under 8s Handwriting: Indigo Officer, age 5. Under 8s Story: Tilly Lawson, age 6. Under 12s Handwriting: Anna Bennett, age 9 and Sarah Bennett, age 11. Under 12s Story: Jessica Amy Hunt, age 8 and Roseanne Lindley, age 10.
