Sometimes it feels like rarely a day goes by in Ramsbottom without a new bar, restaurant or coffee shop opening, this month is no different. Nestled between Pizza Nova and Woodholme Supplies, opposite St Paul’s Church you’ll find The Ram in the old Ramsbottom Flooring premises. If I recall correctly, Ramsbottom Flooring struggled to get back on their feet after the boxing day floods (comments below if I’m wrong).[Read more…] about New Cafe/Bar The Ram opens in Ramsbottom
If you weren’t already aware (if you’re a parent you’ll know) March 7th is World Book Day.
You’ll no doubt see many local children dressed up in various characters on their way into school (I know ours will be).
So what’s going on in Ramsbottom? Well, there’s story time at Ramsbottom Library:[Read more…] about World Book Day 2019 in Ramsbottom
Today, Ramsbottom was back on the radio again (I’ve mentioned this before on the podcast).
This time, we were visited by BBC Radio 1 presenter Jordan North. “Butt” why were they visiting Ramsbottom of all towns on a Thursday morning? Well, it’s because we have BOTTOM in our name.[Read more…] about BBC Radio 1 visited Ramsbottom to collect your jokes
UPDATED 19/02/19: It looks like there’s been some changes to the dates of the roadworks now. Directly below is the most up to date information taken from the roadworks.org website.
Ramsbottom, lovely town but damn we don’t half have a lot of road works. One way to know that there is a school holiday coming up is to see how many planned road works there are due, and this coming week is no exception with no less than four major planned road works for our town which will no doubt bring everything to a standstill. Partly due to the limited routes through Ramsbottom in general.
As a result of these roadworks there will be changes to the bus routes.
If you want to check the full list of planned road works for yourself you can find them all on roadworks.org, however here are the main ones you should probably be aware of:
- Bolton Street 18th Feb – 20th Feb
- Carr Street 19th Feb – 21st Feb
Bridge Street 19th Feb – 21st Feb Bridge Street 19th Feb – 21st Feb
- Bolton Street 26th Feb – 28th Feb
It started back in October, a win against Trafford. 2-1, a good win, but little did we know at the time how far we would go.
Ramsbottom United, our Ramsbottom United, the little team sitting on the bank of the River Irwell, often the underdogs, would progress this far in the FA Trophy.
We host matches on soggy pitches, with borrowed lights, borrowed stands, hot drinks in real mugs and Rammy Ultras singing out loud.
Ramsbottom United, have done us proud. Never before have we progressed as far as we did this year. To travel as far as Weymouth, where some would have predicted our journey would have ended, but no, we kept our heads up and came away with an amazing win. We were in the news, on the radio and on TV.
After 12 matches though, it came to an end. Against a team, three leagues above us, but not three leagues in quality. Several times we created chances, and we truly gave it our all.
AFC Fylde 4, Ramsbottom United 1.
Our hearts may be heavy, but we should all be proud of that little club, from the banks of the River Irwell, with our borrowed lights, borrowed stands with echos of songs and chants of “Come on you Rams!”
