Ross Charities Market a Great Success

Ross Market House was bustling on Easter Monday with lots of stall holders doing a good trade for their particular charity. This annual event is organized by Ross-in-Bloom and goes some way to helping them achieve good marks in the community involvement aspect of the Heart of England in Bloom Awards, where they have previously won gold for Ross-on-Wye, as well as silver-gilt on more than one occasion, and gives local charities a chance to raise extra funds.

Monday's event was no different. There was a wide variety of stalls supporting charities, such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Ross MS Support Group, Ross Pre School Playgroup and Ross Town Mayor's chosen charity, Ross Educational Foundation, amongst many others. Marie at her burger stall was a welcome sight when we got there. It was freezing cold and she offered us a nice hot cup of coffee to warm up before going about WNTV News business. Marie always supports local, charitable events like this.

We were very pleased to hear that the Macmillan stall raised £75 on the day towards the Renton Appeal. You can see more by watching this week's WNTV News programme.

Open Day at Wilton Castle

Sue and Alan Parslow of Wilton Castle held one of their four annual open days at the castle on Monday and the event was very successful. Sue and Alan and their team have worked hard over the past six years to restore many parts of the castle that were derelict. The castle was actually on the 'Buildings at Risk' register, but now, after all the hard work, the Castle is no longer on that list.

Tours of the castle and grounds were given every hour and on this occasion the public were allowed to explore the east tower, the most recently restored part of Wilton Castle. There were many photograph albums, showing visitors how the castle looked six years ago and the progression of the hard work involved in restoring it.

Every time we visit Wilton Castle there has been yet another achievement. Wilton Castle is no longer a derelict ruin. It is beautiful and in the summer, when all the flowers are out it's beauty is exceptional.

Another open day is due to be held in June and there will be one more in August. Watch Wyenot News closely for further details. You can see further coverage of this event in this week's WNTV News programme.
