at the Prince
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.
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!
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.

Quiz Date for your Diary
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.
are welcome to take part in the quiz which will begin at
8 PM The entrance fee is £2.00 per person.
Term Events at Ross Heritage Centre
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.
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.
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.
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
