The Devil's Name is Dave!

There were spooky goings on at the Hope & Anchor on Saturday night when the pub was visited by witches, ghosts, ghost busters and even the Devil himself.

The Devil, whose name was Dave Walker, was actually on his way to Hereford but called in at the Hope and Anchor for a pint on the way and won a meal for two in the Hope & Anchor restaurant as first prize in the pub's Hallowe'en fancy dress competition.

Pictured above, wicked sisters, Liz and Ave cast a spell on me when I took their photograph on Saturday. I think it went something along the lines that I will be supplied with free beer for life, whenever I visit the Hope & Anchor. Shame really as I only drink about twice a year and I'm saving myself for the Potters Bar Reunion which is coming up soon.

Below: four 'Ghost Busters' capture a ghost called Clive in the parlour restaurant. A collection of very friendly looking ghouls, ghosts and witches. Staff, Danny, Iain, Tigger, Tina and Christo relax after closing time.

Like many other public houses in Ross-on-Wye, the Hope & Anchor is not without its 'genuine' ghosts. Tina telephoned me a week or two back because she was there alone, early in the morning and could hear the sound of a bar stool being dragged across the floor. Things also get mysteriously moved in the Boat Bar.

Diane is the latest EnviroAbility Recruit

Diane Robinson recently started to help as a volunteer in the office of the Ross based recycling charity EnviroAbility in the Ryefield Centre. Diane is in the process of typing-up press articles that are going to be uploaded on to the EnviroAbility web site. Diane is also involved in talking to customers by telephone that have taken advantage of the free cotton nappy trial packs offer.

Diane says, 'This is an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, in such a friendly environment and thereby supplementing my college courses.'

EnviroAbility is still looking for a few volunteers to help out in the relaxed office at the Ryefield Centre. If you can spare a few hours just call Dennis or Martin on 01989 760919 for a chat.

The Multi Award Winning, EnviroAbility provide and promote projects that involve and benefit the local community and the environment.
