Letters and photos from Laura Howells

Laura Howells of Ross emailed me twice recently regarding Wyenot News. The second time she included some photographs one of herself and her niece, Aleesha, aged 2 in the snow, the second photo is of Cawdor Arch on Thursday last. Laura enjoys photography and will be sending in more photos in the future.

Laura's emails

'I was just once again browsing and I just thought that I had to mention something. I don't know if you get praised for your work etc, so I thought I would. I think that you are a fantastic photographer, and all the work that you put into this site is amazing. So I personally would like to thank you for an enjoyable read.'

'Hi its Laura Howells again, I thought maybe with all this snow I could help you with a few photos of my own as you are so busy :) Aunty Laura and Aleesha aged 2.'

Mike Arnison Nature Photography

This week Mike has sent in two more recent nature photographs. The top photo is of a Stag, taken this week at Speech House in the Forest of Dean and the bottom one of a Red Spotted Woodpecker, taken at Cannop.

If you would like to buy prints of Mike's stunning photographs, email me and I will put you in touch.

Ashfield Care Launch New Home Care Service

Ashfield Care Agency have been operating since 1987, providing first class care in local residential homes. They have now launched a new home care service to provide personal care for elderly or disabled people in their own homes. The staff can assist with getting up, putting to bed and preparing light meals, enabling people to stay at home with assistance, rather than go into residential care.

Ashfield Care are registered with the C.S.C.I, which is the inspection body for care and nursing and they are fully insured for this service.

There is a brochure for this service available free upon request. To obtain your copy please contact Rosemary Hemingway on 01989 565309 or 07778 317452. Rosemary will also be more than happy to pay you a no obligation visit by arrangement, if preferred.

If you think it was cold in Ross . . .

Thank you to Pete Alker for sending in the photo below from Canada. Pete, who used to live in Ross-on-Wye said, 'I guess you will be putting in some photographs of the snow this week so here is one of our beach taken this afternoon. It was on the cool side.'

Now there's some real 'Nanook of the North' weather!
