Valentine's Day Issue of Wyenot News
to the February 14th 2007 edition of Wyenot News. There
are rather a lot of photos of snow in this week's issue.

off rural and world wide readership, I have published lots
of photographs of last week's snowfall for the younger generation
in Ross-on-Wye to enjoy.

know that I wish I had photos of the snow which fell in
my home town of Barking, Essex in 1962/3. I was 9 years

has this all got to do with Valentine's Day? Absolutely
nothing. Coincidentally though, The Zebras are holding a
Valentine Dance at the Rowing Club on Friday, so I shall
stand in the corner at that, enjoying the music and drinking
Valentine's Day to all Wyenot News readers! And especially
to Tina, who has had to help a lot with this issue and put
up with my fluent Anglo Saxon when things have not gone
according to plan.
