At the Leavers' Ball

I did not stay long inside the hotel but below are some photos I took just prior to dinner being served. Music for the evening was provided by Nigel Gaudion's Disco and I have heard from several sources that Nigel did a great job of keeping the guests entertained.

After the Ball, the partying continued at various venues around town until the early hours.

Archive photo from Symonds Yat

Chris Lane from Canada thought that readers might be interested in this old picture of Symonds Yat that he recently came across.

Chris has lived in Canada since 1956 but is originally from Birmingham. He recently found the picture while going through old family photographs. 'I have no idea what year it was but I suspect the fairly new condition of the car might be a clue,' he said.

Does anybody recognize the couple who were obviously enjoying a picnic?

Ross Junior Rebels

Ross Junior Rebels held their end of season presentation on Saturday following a successful season during which the team only lost two games and came runners up at Edgar Street in the Cup Final.

The team's player of the season was Danny Haile and top goal scorer was jointly obtained this year by Ryan Page and Michael Donaldson.

The team would like to thank Neil and Tracy Bedford for sponsoring this season's football kit.

In the photo are James Reid, James Davies, Danny Haile, Jake Wild, Aaron Thorley, Ryan Page, Sam Davies, Mike Donaldson, Ben MacDonald, Geraint Williams, Sam Humble, Rob Phillips, Sam Callum, David Tookey. Charlie Davies was unable to attend on Saturday.

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.
