Ross Cider and Music Festival on Saturday

An even bigger crowd went along to the festival on Saturday. 'It's like Woodstock revisited,' I remarked to Tina as we headed towards the music. There were tents in every conceivable position in the orchard with families walking about, dressed in colourful clothing or relaxing outside their tents, enjoying the chilled atmosphere. On reflection, I wish I had filmed and photographed this but we were headed for the cider barn and I did not think of it at the time.

Music was provided during the afternoon by Miln and James as well as a by a general gathering of musicians, who happened to be there. Evening arrived and the orchard, the cider barn and outside suddenly filled to capacity with visitors. The festival had almost reached its 400 people, health and safety maximum and entry had to be stopped by closing the gates.

Dancing began as evening approached, to the sound of the 'Hellbelly Kentucky Chicken Blue Grass' band and later, the dance floor was absolutely packed with 'cider heads' dancing to both American and English tunes, performed by the brilliant, 'Chicken Shed Zeppelin'. The scene was just one of those amazing times when hundreds of people enjoy themselves at once - a bit like New Year's Eve.

Throughout the weekend, John and Hilary Draper from Broome Farm Guest House provided excellent food and took care of the catering in general.

THE WYENOT NEWS DEADLINE

The absolute deadline for Wyenot News stories and other items is 12:00, midday on Tuesday, for inclusion in the following day's edition.

PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: This is an absolute deadline and not the time I am asking for articles to be sent in. Mondays and Tuesdays here at 'Wyenot News' are Hell with by far, the most events I cover occurring at the weekend. The photography that the public sees happening is only one tiny part of the whole picture (please excuse the pun) of running this weekly news publication and the bits of prep that people do not see, are actually the most time consuming part of getting the story out.

If at all possible, please send your story in as early as you can, rather than wait until the very last minute, so that I can have at least a fighting chance of getting to bed before 3:00 am every Tuesday and Wednesday morning after what has lately become two 18 hour working days on the trot.

Thank you very much for your understanding and help.

Alan
