ROSS-ON-WYE WEATHER STATION NEEDS A WEATHER WATCHER

In a small, secure compound, located between Walford Road and the tennis courts lies Ross-on-Wye Weather Station – probably noticed by many without its purpose actually registering. For many years Ross weather station has provided statistics for various publications, including the back page of the Daily Telegraph where it formed part of the global statistics on weather, thus raising the profile of the town and putting it on the map.

In these days of instant information, statistics from the Ross Weather Station and the daily weather can be found on numerous web sites, including Wyenot News and the Town Council’s website, and therefore there is less of a need for a printed version. However, there is still a need for volunteers to provide the information.

The Weather Station has been manned by volunteers over the years for a small honorarium for no other reason than an interest in the weather and volunteering to do something for the community. More volunteers are now needed to take on this role, which requires an element of commitment, dedication, fitness and a head for heights, as part of the job is to read instruments located at the top of a ladder.

If anybody is interested in undertaking this unique role and wishes to know more, please contact the Town Clerk on 01989 562373 or by email at: clerk@rosstc-herefordshire.gov.uk.

June and Rex Swallow monitored the Ross weather for many years but more recently, on June and Rex's retirement, Gill Roes Francken took on the role and has been sending the weekly statistics to Wyenot News. Unfortunately, I didn't have a recent photo and could not get along to take one in time for this article. Sorry.
