Open Day at the Castle

Owners of Wilton Castle, Sue and Alan Parslow held another castle open day on Sunday for visitors to look around and see how far restoration work on the ancient fortress has progressed. Work is virtually complete now and the gardens are beautiful.

Having shown the restoration of the castle itself in past editions, I went along on Sunday, taking photos of people enjoying their visit and those showing them round, rather than the building.

Hazy Ray at the Prince of Wales

Local rock band, Hazy Ray performed to a very busy Prince of Wales on Saturday evening. I went along for a short time. This is the second time I have seen Hazy Ray and both times they have been brilliant. A band that is well worth noting as worth watching!

I did not stop for very long as I was by myself. Tina was working and most of my friends were elsewhere. Being older than most of the audience on this occasion, although I enjoyed the music very much I was more inclined towards a quiet evening as I felt lonely in a crowded place - my fault, not the place. I will definitely go to see Hazy Ray again though when the opportunity presents itself.

This coming weekend, the Zebras will be playing the Prince on Saturday and the White Lion Festival on Sunday. I have a few events to cover for the news this coming Saturday evening but will make the Prince my last port of call and enjoy my very favourite local band with a beer. If the weather is nice on Sunday, I will try to film the Zebras at the White Lion for next week's news. Hope to see you there, at both venues!

Stars and Cars at Llangarron Fête

Ben Miller.

After the coup of securing Oscar winning actress Jennifer Connelly and her husband, Paul Bettany, to open the Fête in 2003, Llangarron has come up trumps again. This year's guest star is actor and comedian Ben Miller who recently starred as Sir James Lester in ITV's sci-fi drama Primeval.

Ben will be putting in an appearance at Llangarron Summer Fête on Saturday 7th July at 1.30pm. The venue is Bernithan Court, a distinguished 17th century house built by William Hoskyns. This gives people the rare opportunity to visit the gardens and enjoy the magnificent setting which is less than four miles from Ross.

There will also be a chance to win a Renault Clio, sponsored by Callow Marsh. The prize is a brand new metallic silver 5-door Clio Expression dCi 68 with a retail value of £11,870. To win, you have to throw seven dice together and hope they all come up 6's. There is a chance you could be driving away in the car for £1!

This year's other star attractions include a Magic Show and Balloon Animal Workshop by the popular local entertainer Wizard Wonky and a Falconry Display by the Black Mountain Falconry Team. Ross Town Band will be providing the music.

Along with the traditional stalls, games, amusements and refreshments, other attractions include a fantastic Prize Draw, the Llangarron Hand bell Ringers, the Great Bernithan Treasure Hunt, a parade of vintage tractors and a classic car corner.

As the Fête aims to draw the community together to have a fun afternoon, from 1.00-5.00pm, everyone is welcome. Entrance is £1 for adults with children admitted free.
