The Gin Game

'The Gin Game' presented by the Hereford players can be seen at the Phoenix Theatre on Friday and Saturday, 18th and 19th May.

The Gin Game is a Pulitzer Prize-winning play and starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn when it was first staged and, more recently, Joss Ackland and Dorothy Tutin.

Weller Martin is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self-righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives. Fonsia wins every time and their secrets become weapons used against one another. Weller longs for a victory to counter a lifetime of defeats but it doesn't happen. He leaves the stage a broken man and Fonsia realizes her self-righteous rigidity has led to an embittered lonely old age.

The Hereford Players have been performing continuously since 1945 and have had many successes at drama festivals, most recently in April of this year when they won through to the Central final of the All England One-Act Theatre Festival. In the past eighteen months Gordon Stewart and Amanda Watkins have won six trophies between them for Best Actor and Best Actress at drama festivals, and they are looking forward to their first appearance at The Phoenix Theatre.

Tickets for the play can be obtained from Ross Heritage Centre.

A Visit from Hannah More Primary School

Pupils at Goodrich Primary School enjoyed a visit from their counterparts at Hannah More Primary School, an inner city school in Brisol. The visit took place on Wednesday, 2nd May. The Goodrich pupils had previously received letters from every year group at Hannah More and recognized their new friends on their arrival from photographs which had been included.

Teacher, Lisa Middle from Hannah More presented gifts during the school's visit of a Hijab, which is a Muslim head dress, a sweat shirt and a DVD of the school's play. The play was about characters to do with Goodrich Castle and had been based in information given to them by Goodrich Primary teacher, Noel Edwards.

In the photo, teachers, Noel edwards and Lisa Middle can be seen with pupils from both Goodrich and Hanna More Primary Schools.

Successful Rock and Ross Dance

Ross-in-Bloom held a very successful Rock and Ross Dance last week. 'Just Rocking', a live band from Bristol, entertained this very well attended event at the Bowling Club. Everyone enjoyed taking themselves back to the 60's with plenty of music and dancing.

Ross-in-Bloom is self-supporting and the sales of tickets and a raffle enabled the group to pay for the band, a delicious ploughman's supper and the hire of the room with a bit to spare. This money raised will be put towards the Chairman's projects this year, which include the planting of trees and the History of Ross.

The Chairman of Ross-in-Bloom would like to thank everyone who supported the event including those people who travelled from Abergavenny and Cheltenham. Particular thanks go to Jo Ashman who arranged the evening and Ross Lions who also supported the event. Special thanks go to the Bowling Club for supplying a superb venue and lots of drinks from the bar, and to those local traders who supplied the food.

The dance was the culmination of a week of events for Ross-in-Bloom. Earlier in the week the Queen's tree was planted in Dean Hill Park. Guests were invited back to the Town Council Chamber for a light lunch with coffee. Margaret would like to thank the Town Council and the Priory Coffee House for supporting this event as well as Herefordshire Council for their help with sourcing and planting the tree.
