The Ross Rocks team had hoped, but never thought in their
wildest dreams that the recent festival would be the huge
success that it was and I, along with the rest of the team
would like to thank everybody who helped to make it so.
To see such a result after sitting round tables discussing
and planning, with various difficulties arising along the
way was awesome! All the work had paid off and to see so
many people enjoying themselves on 25th June was fantastic
to say the least.
of the bands, who appeared for free gave great performances
as did the Ross Phoenix Majorettes and watching the mass
Zumba with Tasha (well, you didn't actually expect me to
join in, did you?) was brilliant! The kids had fun, mums
and dads had fun and everybody involved had a really enjoyable
day. Even the weather was fantastic. What has been really
good since the event took place is the lack of negative
feedback. During the following week, I went to the Ross
Gazette office to talk about the day and had to ask the
question; 'Have you been inundated with irate phone calls,
letters, emails etc.?' 'No! Nothing at all' came the reply
and to date, none has been forthcoming. I'm not going to
tempt providence by expanding on this issue, so am happy
to leave it at that and hope you enjoy looking at the photographs
of what was a great day for us and for the town.
this article, some photographs of Ross Rocks! can be seen
along with the great video coverage by Alan's daughter,
Sarah. Sarah spent the whole day filming and then spent
a lot of time editing and putting together two videos for
you to watch. She has never done anything like this before
and I'm sure you will agree, she has done a brilliant job
and Alan would be so proud of her, as I am.
would just like to add that, unless otherwise credited,
all photographs on the two Ross Rocks pages were kindly
supplied by Caz Holbrook and many more photographs of the
day can be seen on her web site at www.cazholbrookphotography.co.uk
for a 2012 event are already underway. Please keep reading
