ROSS ANNUAL TOWN MEETING

Ross-on-Wye Annual Town Meeting took place last night at the Larruperz Centre. Two presentations were given to the 16 members of the public who attended the meeting.

The first presentation was made by Brian Atherton and was about Ross-on-WiFi - a wireless internet access which is available free for people to log on for one hour in parts of Ross.

Dennis Humble then spoke about the 'Can Do Crew', a social initiative made possible by Enviro Ability who are able to do jobs for people around the house and garden such as lawn mowing, hedge trimming, shed painting and many other tasks.

One interesting point was made during the evening when Councillor Derek Bedford pointed out that last year, he said that 'the Town of Ross had a charter dating back to 1180'. Local historian, Heather Hurley had since corrected him, pointing out that the charter is even older than that. Ross was first granted a market in 1130, and will be celebrating its 900th anniversary in the year 2030. 'Not that this will concern me,' added Councillor Bedford. 'I will be 98 years old then'.

After the presentations, the Ross Town Councillors introduced themselves individually and when the meeting was over, Mayor, Councillor John Davis presented Margaret Lucas, Chairman of Ross-in-Bloom with a cheque for £500.00, which will be used to cover some of the costs involved in keeping Ross looking nice for visitors and the Heart of England in Bloom judges.
