WNTV: Soul for Michelle's 21st Birthday

Michelle Jones celebrated her 21st Birthday in style on Sunday by getting together with Charmaine Danter, Nikki Wood and Sam Pearce and holding a Garden Party at the Plough Inn, Overross. The great young soul/funk band, 'Soul For Sale' from Hereford provided the music and food and drink was enjoyed by the many guests in the new marquee style area at the Inn, provided for those who smoke.

I went along for the evening and had a great time in the company of friends and listening to the band. The talented young Hereford based musicians are well worth going to see, or booking if you have an event or party coming up. They play a range of soul standards as well as their own music. If you are looking for a band to book, I filmed some of their performance and one of their own numbers, 'Dog House' can be watched below.

The band are: Jared Evans and Sara Hughs - vocals, Lucy Arnold - Trumpet, Jack Bishop and Will Cook - saxophone, Alex Summers - drums, Noah Waterfield-Price - keyboards, Josh North - guitar, Mike Prince - bass and Lawrence Toye - sound tech.

Barbershop Concert in Llangarron Church
by Rosie Wilson

An appreciative audience enjoyed an evening of harmony and humour given by the Wye Valley Chorus on Saturday. Despite being depleted through illness, the 12 strong group of dandily dressed gentlemen, conducted by Paul Mills, performed a varied repertoire of songs including 'Georgia on my Mind', 'Under the Boardwalk' and 'When I'm 64'. The programme aptly ended with a moving rendering of Eli Jenkins' prayer: 'Every Morning when I Wake' from Dylan Thomas's 'Under Milk Wood'.

Whilst the choir rested their voices, David Handley, an Octogenarian from Crickhowell, entertained the gathering with assorted jokes and readings. These included an amusing poem about country life, entitled 'The Archers', which had been penned by his late wife, Mary.

During the interval, refreshments were served in the North Aisle of the church, enabling people to mingle and chat. Through fund-raising and grants, it is hoped to convert the North Aisle into a community venue for everyone in the locality to use and enjoy. If the Llangarron Village Project proceeds, concerts in Llangarron church will be one of the many community events, activities and services taking place in the church. As well as having an enjoyable evening, a healthy 465 was raised to go towards essential church repairs and the running of St Deinst church.

As a final note, the event was helped by the provision of a portaloo in the churchyard. This was purchased by the LCA earlier this year with a grant from the Ross Area Community Pride Scheme which is funded by Advantage West Midlands' Market Town Initiative. Jan Falkiner was there to see the portaloo in situ and find out more about the Llangarron Village Project.

Happy 18th Birthday, Mike!

Happy Birthday to Michael Jones, who celebrated his 18th birthday on Friday, 21st September. Michael worked out years ago that his 18th birthday would fall on a Friday and since then had been planning his birthday **ss up!

However, after remembering his brother waking up in Hereford Hospital on his 18th, after a pre birthday drink and the memory of a recent session with friends still being very vivid, Mike settled for a nice night out with his girlfriend, Kirsty and friends, Toby and Laura instead.

We are glad you had a lovely time, Mike.

Love Mum and Alan
