The Cross Keys Real Ale and Cider Festival

Paul Chicken, landlord of the Cross Keys Inn at Goodrich decided to hold a Real Ale and Cider Festival over Easter weekend in order to raise funds for local charity St. Michael's Hospice.

The three day event was very well attended and customers were treated to some excellent live music, provided by local bands, Hazy Days, Switch and Banshee.

A total of 323.17 was raised for St. Michael's.

Easter Bonnets at Rosedale

The residents of Rosedale retirement home held a fund-raising event on Saturday, the proceeds of which will go towards the residents' activity fund. The fund covers the cost of activities and day trips out. There was a craft stall on the day, which was well supported by relatives and the residents wore some beautiful Easter bonnets which they had made themselves, with a little help from Activity Co-ordinator, Peggie McDill. Their efforts were later judged and the winners are as follows:

First prize went to Nancy Cover. Nancy will be 97 years of age in May. Well done Nancy. Second prize went to George Davies, third prize to Edna Hodgkins, fourth prize to Irene Weaver, fifth prize to Alice Miles and sixth place went to Joan Ollis.

I hope that you get lots of email telling you how wonderful your photos are and how much they are appreciated. THEY HAVE TAKEN ME BACK THROUGH TIME.

Thank you so much. Doing amateur genealogy, it seems we have ancestors who lived in Ross-on-Wye. Your website brings it all into glowing living reality for me.

Many blessings to you...
