Jane is Ross Rotary Citizen of the Year

Jane Hewson has been nominated 'Citizen of the Year' for 2008 by Ross Rotary Club. She was given the award for her outstanding work with the young theatre company, X-Entricity.

I was kindly invited along to Ross Rotary Club on Monday evening to the Royal Hotel where, after dinner, Jane was presented with her award. Jane was a little lost for words but thanked everybody, explaining that she sees every member of X-entricity as being part of her big family. The X-entricity group gave a surprise performance during the presentation.

Jane's presentation is pictured below but is covered in more detail in this week's WNTV NEWS programme.

Great Events Organized for Goodrich Castle

Goodrich Castle puts on a good range of events throughout the year and a great programme has been arranged by Footprint Impression Management for the castle this year.

There will be lots of Medieval entertainment, activity days, Shakespearean plays and fascinating events for all the family.

Wyenot News were invited along to Goodrich Castle for the launch of the programme.

Whilst we were there, we met young Corin Dennehey who won a competition to create a new stained glass window for the chapel. The 'window' will stand in front of a light box in the chapel for the season. Corin has done a brilliant job. When I asked how long it had taken him to produce, he said, 'At least two days!'

After speaking to Corin, we met with Helen, the artistic director of one of the many events happening at the castle this year. The production she is involved in is a 'Tale of Love and War.' Helen intends to ask some of the local talent to participate in the production.

We were escorted to the castle grounds by Bowman, Kevin Hicks, who is a regular at Goodrich. Kevin really enjoys educating children in an entertaining way and is very popular with them.

For details of events at Goodrich Castle, please visit the 'What's On?' page of Wyenot News.

Ross Town Mayor's Other Charity Ball

Mayor of Ross, Councillor Derek Bedford has been very busy this year, raising money for his chosen charity, Ross Educational Foundation.

Councillor Bedford has raised well in excess of his anticipated £4,000 by performing a sponsored preach, an Easter Draw, running a stall at the Charities Market with his wife, Meryl and the more recent Mayor's Charity Ball which was held at the Chase Hotel. The Mayor says that he has been helped enormously this year by his officer, Mr. Paul Truman, whom he would like to thank for his hard work.

The Mayor's Alternative Ball, which is to take place at the Prince of Wales this coming Saturday, 19th April is expected to boost funds even further. The event begins and 8pm and some great entertainment has been arranged. The Caroline Roadshow will be providing the recorded music and the brilliant Business As Usual ill be performing their excellent range of rock covers. Tickets cost £5 and are available from Thorntons, The Prince of Wales and The Corn Exchange. All proceeds will go towards the Ross Educational Foundation. See you there?
