Rock perform at the Prince
rock band, Dad Rock gave a great performance in the function
room at the Prince
of Wales on Saturday evening, which included
some of the more heavy rock classics. The evening was well
attended, with both a birthday and an anniversary being
celebrated in the function room on the night.
and I were late arriving, having been at another function
for most of the evening but we enjoyed the band and I did
manage to record a clip of the band's set, which can be
seen in Tina's newscast on page one of this week's issue.
Tina also had time to dance with Ali of course, as can be
seen below, leaving me to chat with friends and pinch the
odd chunk of cheese from the excellent buffet which had
been provided for the party. I also took the unusual step
of taking an infra red photo this week, to show some of
the dancers (the black and white one at the bottom).
light show! The Prince is becoming known as a music venue
these days and it is always good when the music events take
place in the function room.
coming Saturday evening, one of Tina's favourite bands,
'SOFA' will be performing in the bar at the Prince, so we
are almost certain to be there so that she can dance the
Rock at the Prince of Wales on Saturday. Ref: DSC_2853

the number is rising.

low, we will run out by the end of the week. Could you please
let your readers know our situation?
would be grateful for any donations. They can be dropped
off at VWR at Beckford, or at our charity shop, Vine Street,
Evesham. Also, if people find it difficult to deliver larger
quantities we may be able to arrange collection.
regards Angela (care assistant)
for the silly request, but your website was the only one
I could find which showed some promise when I 'Googled'
an old friend of mine, Miles Rudge.
knew Miles from college days but lost touch with him about
15 years ago. I stayed with him in Ross, and know that there
are quite a few Rudges in that area, so was hoping that
you might be able to put me in contact with any of his relatives
(so that I can track him down!).

am hoping to find an old colleague who used to live in Ross
on Wye. Does your publication carry requests for information?
He was a merchant navy officer called Roger Wooding Any
suggestions as to other places I could look would be appreciated.
in crisis over chef
Ross-on-Wye Lions are having difficulty finding a chef or
cook to oversee the preparation and serving of their annual
Christmas Lunch for the Lonely Elderly of the district.
They have volunteers who will help with the cooking and
serving but need someone to take overall responsibility
for the kitchen.
Christmas lunch takes place at the Ryefield Centre in Ross
on Christmas Day, starting at around 12 noon and finishing
about 2.30pm. Around 50 meals will have to be prepared but
there are lots of volunteers to assist.
who would like to help the Lions, or WRVS, with this task
would need to be at the Ryefield Centre on the 24th December
to ensure the vegetables are prepared as necessary and then
again on the 25th for the cooking and serving.
If a volunteer is not available then the Lions are prepared
to pay someone for the two days. Please is there someone
who can help the Lions and the WRVS give these elderly persons
their Christmas dinner; they would hate to let them down.
you are interested and need more information, please contact
the Lions President, Keith Wilding on 01989 562145, Bernard
Fowkes on 01989 563337 or Debbie Griffiths 01989 765595,
or at her office in 18 Gloucester Road, Ross-on-Wye.
