Happy Birthday Caz and Doc!

For those who like to read the weekly Prince of Wales live music news. I am sorry but I did not make it to the Prince this week. This was because Tina and I went to a party to celebrate the birthdays of two old friends instead.

Happy Birthday to Caz, who celebrated her day on Saturday, 19th May and to Doc, who celebrated on Saturday but whose actual birthday falls on Wednesday, 23rd May!

The home-made curry was great and it is really nice to see the two of you happy together as a couple!

I have to admit that I had forgotten until I was reminded by Caz on Saturday evening. Tina and I should have been celebrating an event which took place exactly ten years prior to Saturday - same place, similar occasion. Now that you have reminded me, I remember it well Caz - and so will all of those who left their coats in your bedroom that night and could not retrieve them due to the door being locked from the inside!

Keep the camp fires burning

Were you once a Beaver, Cub, Scout, Venture Scout or leader? This year sees the 100th anniversary of the first experimental Scout camp on Brownsea island with Robert Baden-Powell. To celebrate this historic event, the Ross Scout district are holding a Campfire and Barbeque to which we are inviting all ex-members of the movement, whether they were involved locally or have moved to the area since leaving Scouting. The Centenary Celebration Campfire and Barbeque is on this coming Saturday, May 26th at 7pm. It is being held at Upper Pengethley Farm. Please call Bryan Jones on 01989 565156 for full details.

Ross Scout District covers the Scout groups in Whitchurch, Walford, Aston Ingham and of course Ross itself. The camp opens at about 20:00 on Friday evening and continues until 12:00 on Sunday.

Arriving in style for the Ball

Arrival at the Leavers' Ball seems to be the way young people of school leaving age like to impress their friends these days. This year, carriages ranged from tractors to a helicopter, via ice-cream vans and limousines.

Pictured below are some of the school leavers arriving at the Chase Hotel Ball on Friday evening.
