Readers' Photos

Thank you to Danny Dean, who sent in these photos of the Doward Park Campsite at Great Doward. Danny said that eight inches of snow fell on the Doward last week due to the altitude.

Zebras at the Rowing Club

Most people who read Wyenot News regularly have probably guessed that I, along with a large regular following like going to the Zebras' gigs, so I will not go into too much detail here. The band performed well at the Rowing Club on Friday evening, despite Paul having had no voice all week due to a lurgy which has been doing the rounds in Ross. He made a recovery at the last minute and the evening went ahead as planned. All who made it through the fog enjoyed the evening.

The Zebras are playing at the Nag's Head in Cinderford this coming Saturday and at the Prince of Wales the following week - on Saturday, 3rd March.

A Rogues' Gallery

Friends, Glynis and Jerry have a 'Rogues gallery' on their wall at home but some of the rogues were missing, so after the Rowing Club Ball was over on Saturday evening I was asked to do a quick photoshoot with this in mind. (I did take a proper one of Ali and Paul as well but thought I would show the bunny ears here.) I think Jerry took the photo of Tina and I but I had been drinking and cannot remember for certain who actually took the camera. I just remember how I was shocked by the brightness of the flash, not having been on the receiving end of it very often.

That's Paul in trouble!

Ross-on-Wye Weather Station Readings

Ross-on-Wye Weather Station is located by the tennis courts and bowling green at 'Crossfields' and is one of the important stations around the country which regularly sends data to the Meteorological Office. This is why Ross-on-Wye is sometimes mentioned on the BBC weather reports. It is currently still a manually monitored station and readings are taken twice per day by husband and wife team, June and Rex Swallow.
