Jumping Jive at The White Lion

Herefordshire Jive fans are in for a great Christmas treat on Sunday, 23rd December as the Wye Valley's leading Jump Jive band, The Jiveoholics, make a welcome return appearance at The White Lion, Wilton.

The Jiveoholics present a humorous, high energy set featuring the music of Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway and Louis Prima, that was all the rage in the 1940's and early 1950's. The six piece band faithfully recreate a whole host of classic jump jive hits that had people rocking and rolling in the aisles years before Rock and Roll had even been invented and the evening is guaranteed to go with a swing.

Admission is free and the first set will begin at 8.30 pm, so dust off your dancing shoes, get your partner on the floor and jump jive into Christmas. For further information call The White Lion on 01989 562785.

Goodrich PTFA Christmas Fayre

Goodrich School PTFA held a Christmas Fayre at the school on Friday, giving visitors the chance to have a lot of fun whilst raising money to boost school funds. There were lots of activities to take part in including a tombola, candle making, a game involving sprouts and many stalls with lovely Christmas gifts for sale.

It looks as if a good time was had by all who attended.

A special breakfast for Alfie

Leukaemia sufferer, Alfie, who comes from Hereford is just three and a half years old and at the weekend he was treated to a special breakfast at the Pengethley Garden Centre Restaurant by his mum and dad. The Restaurant staff gave him a hearty welcome and while he was there, Alfie got their full attention as the threat of catching an infection does not allow him to join with other children.

Alfie's mum praised the staff, saying that they were, 'brilliant - making the meal a wonderful event'. Alfie really enjoyed himself, however, this wasn't all Alfie enjoyed because the Ross Lions Club had persuaded Santa Claus to get up early and go along to the Pengethley Garden Centre just to meet him, talk to him and give him a present.

He was over the moon. The Ross Lions, along with the Pengethley staff, send their best wishes to Alfie and hope he has a wonderful Christmas.
