Ross Cider and Music Festival on Sunday

The Farmers' Market took place on Sunday, with stalls selling produce and other products, such as jewellery while various musicians performed, the day's events culminating is a stunning performance by female vocalist/guitarist, Louise Richardson. Louise has a beautiful voice and I recorded two songs, which can be seen and heard at the end of the film.

I don't know if you saw the excellent BBC 'Natural World' programme about the Cider Producer, Bee Keeper, Gillie and Sheep Farmer in the Wye Valley a few months ago? Mike from Ross Cider starred as the cider producer in that amazing documentary. I have known Mike for a long while but at the festival, I was introduced to Gareth Baker, the Beekeeper from the film and he showed me some of his bees as he sold his home produced honey and candles on his stall.

Gareth suggested that next spring, we meet up so that I can take photos as he begins the season and run an article about his life as a beekeeper in the Wye Valley in Wyenot News. I'm looking forward to that one - it sounds like a great lifestyle.

Below are some photographs of Sunday at the festival. Next year, Tina and I are definitely going to camp at the farm and spend the whole weekend enjoying the three day event to the full.

What's Happening in Ross This Week?

The excellent Double Barrel will be performing at The White Lion, Wilton on Saturday 8th September. This popular band have a great range of covers, catering to all tastes. Why not go along to this lovely riverside inn and see for yourself?.

There is quite a diverse choice of entertainment taking place on Saturday, actually For instance:

If you like a little adult humour, 'Country Yokel' (similar in Style to 'Jethro') will be performing at Ross Conservative Club. Tickets for this event cost £10 and include a buffet and disco. The entertainment here starts at 7.30 pm.

Andy M (not Margrett) will be performing a range of covers through the ages at the Prince of Wales from 9 pm, but if you like 'a cracking slice of quintessential, psychedelic indie' (NME) The Dandelion Killers will be playing at The Barrel in Brookend Street.

Don't forget the fun family day out in the Caroline Symonds Gardens on Sunday 9th. Ross Town Carnival Committee have arranged for some of the events that had to be postponed on Carnival Day due to the flooding, to take place now and include a companion dog show, inflatables, stalls, burger man, ice cream man and much more. Hope to see you there.

Have a good week.



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
