Switch at the Prince

Local trio, 'Switch' gave a great performance of rock covers and some of their own material at the Prince of Wales on Saturday evening. Simon, lead vocalist and guitarist originally played with the band, 'Chill2Thrill', who were very popular locally and further afield. He and bass player Russell Downes have written some great songs which we hope to hear more of in the near future.

Tina and I called in at the venue just to take a couple of photos but ended up meeting up with friends. Firstly, of course we met Simon, the guitarist and his dad, Fred (it's been a long while and it was great to catch up - just like old times). Then we met Paul and Ali Randell and that clinched it - Ali and Tina went dancing and Paul and I enjoyed some Jack Daniels in the corner whilst listening to the band!

This coming Saturday, 'Eclipse' are playing at the Prince of Wales. I'm quite looking forward to that one as in the early 'Eclipse' days, I used to play keyboards with the original line-up. Three of the original members of Eclipse are still with the band.

A Quiz Date for your Diary

On Thursday 15th February a quiz will be held at The White Lion Inn, Wilton to help raise funds for Ross Junior Colts football team to go on tour in May of this year. Without extra fund-raising some of the children would not be able to take part in the tour, which would be a great disappointment not only to themselves but to the rest of the team. Dave and Jacqui Newman are pleased to do their bit to help and have already had a good response from their regular quiz teams who are also keen to help.

All are welcome to take part in the quiz which will begin at 8 PM The entrance fee is £2.00 per person.

Half Term Events at Ross Heritage Centre

Ross Heritage Centre will be holding activities for children of all ages during the February Half Term break. The first will be on Tuesday 13th February. Visitors will be able to make cards for Mothers Day and perhaps have a go at a gift idea for this very special day in a Mum's year. This free activity will take place between 11 am and 3 PM, with a lunchtime break between 1:00 pm and 1.30 PM Anyone wishing to drop in to have a go will be able to do so during those times. Children will have to be accompanied. However, we can keep mum occupied if you have to bring her along with you, whilst you make her something very special.

The second Activity Day will be on Friday 16th February. The Hereford Education Team will be in the centre from 10.30 am to 1 PM, helping participants to Make African Masks. Again this is a free, drop-in activity where children will have to be accompanied. Museum on the Move will be on the Market House Apron that day with their new exhibition remembering the slave trade. The staff will be manning the exhibition all day from 10:30 am to 4:00 pm Entry is free.

The Heritage Centre will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary in April, as well as the 50th Anniversary of the visit to Ross by the Queen in 1957. The centre has held nearly one hundred exhibitions of varying types since it opened it doors, and visitors will be able to see examples of some of the more popular ones - some of those they may have missed or enjoyed over the years.

The exhibition will open on Tuesday 13th March, and will run until Tuesday 8th May. Full details will be published at a later date. For further details on any activities at Ross Market House Heritage Centre, telephone (01432) 260675 between the opening hours 10:30 am - 4:00 pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

'myspace' web page bandwidth theft

'myspace' web page photograph and bandwidth theft.

This week I removed two photographs completely from One was a photograph of Amy Winehouse and the other was an old photograph of myself.

In both cases, the reason was because they were being stolen and pulled from my web server by owners of pages on the 'myspace' web site.
