WNTV: Red Lion Festival - The Toby Lovell Experience

The Red Lion at Peterstow held their first Festival over the weekend, going into festivals in a BIG way, with a marquee which could quite easily have replaced Wembley Stadium. With a lot going on over the weekend, I wanted to show some of what had been happening but did not have the time to go along during festival times.

I really wanted to see Toby Lovell and his band but was unable to be there at the time of the actual performance, so the group kindly set up a private performance for me to film for 'Wyenot News' before the show began, playing to an audience of just myself, Roger Lovell and the sound engineer, Andy South.

You can watch that film by clicking the 'play' button on the photo below. It should open in your media player.

Moving the video away from YouTube

Over the past few months I have tried an experiment, streaming the video film I make for 'Wyenot News' from the YouTube web server. This was in order to try and conserve my own bandwidth on the Wyenot web server. I have decided however to stop doing this and revert back to the old system.

The reason for the change back is that, good as 'YouTube' is, the video film I take is specifically for 'Wyenot News'. Quite a few people have recently commented, 'Thank you for putting us on YouTube' or 'I saw your film on YouTube.

Good as it is, I do watch stuff on YouTube but do not actually film with that particular web outlet in mind. I tried using the server as a convenience but I actually film for 'Wyenot News'. I do not want people going specifically to YouTube to watch my video, I would much rather they specifically watched from 'Wyenot News' itself. This is why I have hidden the video as much as possible from general YouTube viewers and not joined any of the YouTube communities to promote the 'Wyenot News' page on that web site.

This is also the very reason I also stopped supplying the newspapers, in particular, the Ross Gazette with my photographs. The Ross Gazette in particular, despite being asked to do so on numerous occasions, refused ('forgot') to credit most of my photography and news research to 'Wyenot News' and I was becoming known as the 'Ross Gazette Photographer', which is something I have never wanted to be. By serving my own video, I am avoiding the same thing happening with YouTube.

Goodrich Village Art Club Exhibition - a preview evening

The Goodrich Village Art Club held the preview of their Exhibition of paintings at The Heritage Centre on Friday evening for members, family and friends.

The Art Club was originally founded 10 years ago by a small group which has grown to number 23 at the present time but new members will be warmly welcomed by telephoning Jean Marshall on 01600 890303.

The Club meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in Goodrich Village Hall, during the Autumn and Winter months. Each member chooses their own subject to paint, in their preferred medium, and is expertly tutored by Jerry Whitehouse.

The Exhibition runs until Monday, 3rd September at The Heritage Centre, which is open Monday - Saturday 10 am until 5 pm and Sundays 10.30 am until 4 pm. Most of the paintings are for sale - framed from 25 - 150, mounted (unframed) from 10.
