Weston-Under-Penyard School SIng 'A Child is Born.'

The pupils of Weston-under-Penyard Primary School have been acting and singing in their production of musical Christmas play, 'A Child is Born.'

After three performances at school, the group came to Ross Market House on Friday to sing some of the songs from the production so that everybody could enjoy their music. You can see parts of their performance in this week's edition of WNTV News.

Whilst I was filming this event, several parents expressed an interest in purchasing a DVD of the whole performance. It has been an extremely busy week here at 'Wyenot News' and I did not initially film with producing a DVD in mind, so I have not had time to make one as yet but I have since spoken to the school. I will produce a DVD with the footage I shot (which was virtually the whole performance) early in the New Year, which I will then take to the school. Parents of the children will then be able to watch it order one from the school. Each DVD takes me ages to produce, so, to cover time and materials, there will be a £6.00 per DVD charge, I'm afraid.

WYETOTS - A great local childminding service

Jo Gilmour and Debbie Rudge are locally based Ofsted registered child minders who are eager to promote the benefits of home based childcare. Childminders can care for children aged birth to 11 years for parents returning to the work place and after school for older children. We feel that the benefits are outstanding. We have plenty of activities including dedicated playrooms in our individual homes. We take part in many local activities including toddlers groups, Jumpstart and attend the child minders group at the new childrens centre at the Ryefield Centre. We love getting out and about with the children in our care such as the park, Beechenhurst and the library.

Debbie lives in Ross and JO lives in Walford and both can do pick ups from Walford School, Walford Playgroup and Abacus. Although both child minders work independently, they get together for the children to socialize with each other and generally have loads of fun!

Child minders require much training which includes paediatric first aid, food hygiene and the new early years foundation. Herefordshire provides fantastic training for child care of which both regularly attend.

For vacancies or a chat about your child, call Debbie on 01989 762379 or JO on 01989 564173 or visit

New Year's Day Fun Run

The New Year's Day Fun Run has been taking place in Ross-on-Wye every year now for quite some time. The trophy that Neil Lucas is holding in the photograph below was given by PGL in 1979, but it is difficult to say whether this was the very beginning of the race's history or the cup was donated once the event became popular. There are many names engraved on the trophy, the latest addition being that of local schoolgirl Vanessa Brann.

On New Year's Day 2008, the organizers would love to see previous participants turn up to take part again as well as newcomers to this fun race. Watch this week's WNTV News for further information.

The performers were a combination of the Penyard Singers and Chamber Orchestra and the pupils and staff of John Kyrle High School. The event was organized to raise money for the Macmillan Renton Appeal. Part of the performance can be seen in this week's edition of WNTV News.
