Exhibitions of Art, Design and Technology at JKHS

Two very impressive exhibitions took place at John Kyrle High School on the evening of Monday 19th June where students were able to show off their GCSE, AS and A Level work.

During the afternoon, I went along to the school while students were preparing the displays and photographed those who were present at the time, along with their work. There were of course, many more excellent exhibits than those shown below for visitors to see.

There are rather a lot of photos on this page, so my apologies to those using dial-up for the slow loading. I wanted to cover all of the exhibitors I photographed. Photographs are captioned individually.

Ross In Bloom

Ross-in-Bloom would like to remind the people of Ross that preliminary judging for the local competitions will start during the first week of July 2006. This will short-list any gardens worthy of a revisit for the actual marking and awards this year during the last two weeks in July (weather permitting).

Once again, please note, Ross-in-Bloom itself is NOT cancelled this year. It is just the judging day for the Heart of England in Bloom judges that is cancelled. It is hoped that we will be able to enter this competition again next year if volunteers come forward to help with the planning of the day and paperwork involved, including the portfolio and photography for the all year round photographic evidence necessary for the entry. This means preparations must start in October at the AGM for this annual event. It is not just for one day.

We are delighted at the verbal support we have received following the cancellation of the Craft and Charity Markets during Bank Holidays and the weeks leading up to Christmas. Unfortunately Mary Powell will not be changing her mind with this regard but is willing to give all information to anybody wishing to take them on.

Mary is also delighted to have received her invitation to the Royal Garden Party in recognition of all her hard work for the community during the past ten years or so. She feels that she has received this accolade not just for herself but also for the good of the town and is looking forward to the visit very much. This is excellent positive publicity of the town too.

She would like to point out that she is not the only person who has given a lot to Ross-on-Wye and is delighted to know that there are quite a few other invitees who will also be attending from Ross this year.

Don't forget. Ross-in-Bloom judges will be around again this year for all 26 competitions. A full list of the itinerary has been printed in the local press and every business in the centre of Ross has received a copy. If anyone wishes to know more, copies will be available from Lucas Motorcycles, Halcyon Daze and the Heritage Centre.

Most of the competitions do not need entry forms but nomination forms for the following are now available at the Heritage Centre: Retired/Disabled Individuals and Communities, Children's Competition, Best Street (6 or more dwellings or businesses), Best Secret Garden, Best Dressed Window. Entries for all except the Children close on 15th July. Children is 30th July. Anyone who still holding a shield or cup from last year is asked to return it to the Heritage Centre during July ready for the summer displays.

It would be unfair to those who support and Wyenot News by advertising to publish blatant advertisements disguised as editorial material.
