Being crafty at the Chase Hotel

The Chase Hotel played host to a fantastic craft fair on Sunday, giving visitors the opportunity to buy high quality, hand crafted Christmas gifts direct from the makers themselves.

There were many beautiful items for sale, including hand made cards and teddy bears, silk scarves, shawls and hand turned wooden bowls. Many of the gifts are not generally available in the high street stores.

Crafts people came along from various places, selling their wares at good prices. Some of them were very local to Ross. Gerald Howarth of Llangrove began his wood turning career 5 years ago, after he had retired and has produced some truly excellent bowls and other wooden utensils. Nina Price of Leys Hill was also present with her great range of beautifully painted silk scarves and cards.

Pictured below are just a few of the traders at Sunday's event, some local and some from further afield. Craft Fairs are quite a regular event at the Chase and at present there are two dates for your diary, Sunday, 28th September and Sunday, 26th October 2008.

A Special Fashion Show in Aid of Macmillan

A special fashion show featuring some well known local models was held at the Larruperz Centre on Friday evening, to raise funds for the Macmillan Renton Appeal. Pam Pritchard, Chairman of Ross Floral Society and Jacqui Miller, Manager of County Casuals came up with the idea of a fashion show to raise money for the Macmillan Appeal and at the same time, raise the profiles of both the fashion store and the floral society. Ross Garden Store kindly supplied flowers, which were beautifully arranged and enhanced the setting.

Rhona Kiernan of County Casuals compered the evening in a rather stunning black evening dress and should perhaps have been on the catwalk herself, along with the rest of the models as they paraded up and down the hall in some stunning outfits.

The evening proved a great success and top local model, Mrs. Joyce Thomas, MBE-DL had a lot of fun helping the Macmillan Renton Appeal of which she is Patron, as did the rest of the glamorous participants: Veronica Irwin, Emily Parsons, Jennie Callway, Charmagne Berry, Jackie Alcock, Jacqueline Miller, Phin Parsons and Andy Clark.
