FEBRUARY 2013 NEWSLETTER WELCOME to our second newsletter of 2013. The snow has been and fortunately gone without causing too much disruption and, with the days getting longer and snowdrops and winter jasmine in flower, there are signs that spring may be on its way. There are lots of plans afoot for events over the summer months - see below for more details!
NEWS We're coming to the end of our spring cleaning, with everywhere looking much brighter and fresher. Anthony has been doing sterling work for us over the past few weeks: he will be looking for more work next week so if you know of any jobs going please get in touch and I will pass the details on to him. In June 1953 an Ox Roast was held in Ledbury, next to the Market House, to mark the Queen's coronation. This year, a group of local people, some of whom can remember the original Ox Roast, have come together to organise an Ox Roast this coming June, Sunday 2nd. The centre of Ledbury will be closed to traffic; the ox will be a Herefordshire beast from Awnell's farm at Much Marcle which will be roasted in the High Street and carved by four teams of local buthers. Along with the Ox Roast there will lots of other attractions including a festival of local food and drink, which I am organising. It promises to be a really exciting event and I will give more details in future e-newsletters. If you would like to see a film that was taken at the original Ox Roast in 1953, just type 'Ledbury Ox Roast' into any search engine. If you would like more details of the Ox Roast, the website will be www.ledburyoxroast.org
