Wedding Bells for Jane and Paul

Congratulations to Paul and Jane Hughes, who were married on Saturday, 18th August. After the wedding the couple held a lovely reception at the Royal Hotel, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Thank you for inviting us, we had a lovely time with you, albeit brief. We hope you enjoy your honeymoon in the Maldives and look forward to hearing all about it when you return.

The very best of wishes to you both.

Will Killeen at the Hope & Anchor

Will Killeen put on an outstanding performance of his style of blues music as usual at the Hope & Anchor on Friday evening which was thoroughly enjoyed by everybody. He also made some CD sales as an added bonus. Although I enjoyed the evening as planned - as unplanned I could only drink water due to a health problem, so remained stone-cold sober throughout and Tina did not have to walk home from work after all (see last week's preview).

Nice to see you again, Will and we look forward to next time. Hopefully Tina will be able to make it to the next one.

Bees and Honey at Ross Library

Local beekeeper and member of the Bee Keepers Association, John Harley went along to Ross Library on Thursday morning to teach a group of fascinated children about Bees and Honey, with practical demonstrations, which included tasting fresh honey.

John is a tutor for the South Herefordshire branch of the Association, which gives hands-on instruction on beekeeping. You can literally put the bee suit on and have a go. If you are interested in finding out how to become a beekeeper, you can either give John a call on 01989 567672 or email him at

Training Sessions with the Basement Youth Trust

The Basement Youth Trust is currently running sessions on Graphic Design in their Computer Suite, for young people between the ages of 11 and 19. These sessions take place on each Monday evening between 4 pm and 6 pm at the YZone in Hill Street and run for four to six weeks. The sessions cater for up to six young people at a time and there are a number of vacancies still to be filled. If you are interested in learning how to use Photoshop or Corel Draw to do graphic design why don't you give them a ring on 01989 563337?

These sessions are not part of the Open Door policy which the Basement Trust runs in the YZone and they are closely monitored, providing a quiet and peaceful atmosphere in which to work.

During the Ross Lions Bonfire Night event last year, several young people showed an interest in the provision of circus skills. The Basement Youth Trust has now reserved the services of a professional circus skills trainer and if the young people mentioned above, and any other young person interested in circus skills would like to take part, sessions will be starting at the beginning of October on a Thursday evening, possibly between from 5pm and 7pm. You can reserve a place by telephoning The Basement Trust on 01989 563337.

The YZone will be producing a new brochure at the end of September which will give details of all the sessions available at the Centre over the next three months. The brochures will be sent to schools, the library, Council Offices and the Tourist Office, so please look out for them.

Bernard Fowkes, Chairman of The Basement Youth Trust would really love to see young people using these great facilities that so many people have worked hard to make available to them. Why not make the most of this opportunity to go along and learn a new skill that has been especially laid on for you for free?
