Successful 72nd Horticultural Show

Ross-on-Wye Horticultural Society held their 72nd Annual Show at the Larruperz Centre on Saturday. The show produced an increase in entries and the quality of the exhibits appeared to benefit from the recent rains.

There were excellent entries in all Classes, not only the Flower and Vegetable section, but also the Home Crafts, Cake Making, Jams, etc. together with a record number of photography entries.

The day proved to be a successful, enjoyable occasion for all involved, both for our local supporters and for visitors to the area.

Man dies on the A40 at Whitchurch

One man has died and another was seriously injured following a collision on the A40 near to Whitchurch on Saturday evening, 11th August.

The collision happened on the Ross-on-Wye bound side of the dual carriageway at around 5.25 PM and involved a silver Lotus Elise sports car which left the carriageway after failing to negotiate a left hand turn. The car rolled through a hedge and fence on the nearside and came to rest on its roof.

All three emergency services attended the accident and several motorists also stopped in the immediate aftermath to give assistance to the two male occupants of the Lotus.

One of the men sustained multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. He was later identified as James Forsyth, age 51, from Whitchurch, Herefordshire. A post mortem is due to take place tomorrow and it is expected that an inquest into Mr Forsyth’s death will be formally opened and adjourned the same day.

A second man from the Lotus, who is from the Ross-on-Wye area, was taken to hospital where he remains in intensive care with serious injuries.

Police had to close the A40 for around four hours while investigators began their investigation of the collision scene and the vehicle was removed.

Police officers are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the silver Lotus as it travelled along the A40 that evening. They are asked to contact PC Chris Fry at the Hereford Roads Policing Unit on 08457 444888.
