Ross Cider Festival Continues . . .

Waking up in the orchard on a sunny Saturday morning was a great feeling. We made our way down to the yard, where some delicious breakfast rolls were being served. We went home to walk Eric and came back to meet the cider makers. There were quite a few different producers there and a couple of them, Barbourne and Gwatkins cider spoke to us for WNTV News. Yet again there was some great music performed throughout the day. I particularly enjoyed 'Kentucky Fried' and Chicken Shed Zeppelin who gave brilliant performances and had the dance floor packed once again.

There were many 'behind the scenes' workers at this fabulous event. John and Hilary Draper provided some excellent food and there were lots of people to help serve it up. The bar staff, especially Richie were always polite and helpful, despite appearing to be working 24 / 7. Henry and team kept a smooth running car parking system and directed campers to their pitches and John Edwards did a brilliant job at the sound desk. There are, of course, many more who helped to make this event the great success that it was. As Mike says 'You know who you are' and thank you. Thanks to Mike, Cindy and Phil for your hospitality. We had a wonderful weekend.

Due to the huge success of this year's event, (some of those who hadn't booked had to be turned away,) ticket booking priority will be given to regulars for a limited period before tickets go on sale to the general public for next year's festival. Phil says please don't try booking up just yet though. They need to recover from this one first.

Details of booking arrangements will appear on Wyenot News as soon as we have them.
