60th Birthday Lyn!
Congratulations to Lyn Tomlinson, who celebrated her 60th
Birthday on Monday, 2nd October! A surprise birthday party

The party was arranged by Lyn's friends.
photographs below show Lyn with her friends enjoying a buffet
tea and drinks at the Phoenix Theatre on Sunday evening.
Thank you to members of Ross Carnival Committee for a wonderful
evening on Friday, 29th September. Members of the Committee
and guests were invited to a social evening in Council Chambers
at the Corn Exchange. Margaret Lucas, who cooks roast beef
just like my mum used to, prepared an excellent buffet lunch
and Ann Gray provided drinks.
nice evening in good company was enjoyed by all and I am
looking forward to the 2007 Carnival, which being the 30th
Anniversary event, promises to be a very special occasion.
Details of this event will be published on Wyenot.com as
soon as the plans begin to take shape.
Below are two photographs of the Chelsea pensioners in Ross
during the 1940's. The wedding guard of honour picture was
taken at Brampton Abbotts church. These were sent in by
Gordon Amand, who wonders if anybody can
give him any more details, such as the names of the couple
who were married and the date.
information would be gratefully received. If you are able
to help with information, please email
and I will put you in tough with Gordon. Gordon would like
to thank Theresa Phillips, who gave him these photos.
Ross on Wye 34 Bristol Aerospace 3.
After a win and loss away in their initial league matches
Ross were looking for a performance in their first home
league game of the season. In front of a vocal crowd and
good playing conditions this was an ideal opportunity to
send a message to the rest of the league. Ross did not disappoint,
dominating possession, attack and defence to register their
first eighty minute display of the season and in doing so
send a message that Ross are looking to build a fortress
mentality at home.
From the kick off Ross were quicker in deed and thought
as they looked a yard quicker than their opposition. The
whole Ross pack offered themselves in the "hard yards" department
and during the first quarter Bristol hardly got a touch
of the ball. Initially their defence held however. After
a constant pounding from not only the Ross pack, but also
the midfield, Mike Davies crashed through a forlorn defence
to open the scoring.
continued to dominate proceedings from the kick off and
with Adam Clements crashing over the gainline every time
he got the ball, the Ross pack continued to dominate proceedings.
From another attack the ball was moved quickly to the left
for wing Dan Weston to score wide out giving Ross a 10-0
lead. During the second quarter Bristol tried to rally.
However, every time they got their hands on the ball they
were met by two, three or four Ross defenders. This led
to mistakes and from another Ross turnover Mike Davies added
a second score to put Ross 15-0 up. In
the closing minutes of the half Bristol got on the score
sheet with a penalty giving a half-time score of 15-3.
second half did not bring any relief to the away team. Ross
continued to dominate possession with the lineout, proving
especially productive with Nick Rawlings finding his jumpers
every time. From this stream of possession Ross were able
to launch attack after attack and after further good work
from the forwards the ball was moved right for Adam Clements
to score in the corner.
the game won Ross now looked to open up the game. They moved
the ball at every opportunity and with the away defence
running out of tacklers, Mike Davies completed his hat trick
before Chay Brine finished off the proceedings with a score
himself, giving a final score of 34-3.
would like to thank Gwalia for sponsoring the game. Ross's
next fixture is a cup game at Avonvale near Bath. Kick off
is at 3 pm.
Visitor Figures September 2006
for wyenot.com during September 2006
As expected, visitors looking for accommodation dropped
slightly during September bringing Wyenot News to the second
most visited area of Wyenot.com. People are still looking
for local accommodation though and the 'Accommodation' page
of Wyenot.com was the third most visited on the site.
the average day in September, 1,065 people viewed 3,966
pages of Wyenot.com. The most visited pages were the 'Home'
page, followed by 'Wyenot News' followed by 'Accommodation'.
to reasons which I think are very sad actually, the video
footage of Tina chatting to Chris and Ingrid Tarrant at
the White Lion Inn hit the big time during September as
far as viewings are concerned. I do wish the tabloid press
would not interfere in people's private lives.
