We’re in to December and lots of people have already started putting up their Christmas decorations. I’m not sure if you have yet but I do like how Christmasy it’s starting to look around our town, especially now that the big tree is up in Market Place.

Well one thing is for sure this week, I’m certainly glad that I didn’t get around to fully writing the show last night as today two bits of big news came out.

The first bit of news is regarding the bride that The Waterside pub used to stand on in Summerseat. You might recall the terrible flooding back on boxing day 2015 that came to Ramsbottom.

This flood didn’t just ruin Ramsbottom, it destroyed what was The Waterside pub in Summerseat. The pub itself had been closed for some time and the flood was the final nail in the coffin. Since The Waterside had collapsed, the bridge that it stood on was no longer safe for pedestrians or vehicles.

The Council did repair the bridge so that it was safe for pedestrian access in March 2016, but without the ability to make further improvements due to the land not being owned by the council where the pub once stood. Today, the Bury Times have reported that the Government have now approved the compulsory purchase order that the Council submitted earlier this year. This means that potentially the bridge could be repaired and opened to vehicles as early as next year. The plans were approved in May of this year which include creation of a new walkway.

The second bit of news comes with the announcement that Head for the Hills 2019 will not happen, not here in Ramsbottom, nor in the rumoured future location Burrs Country Park, or will it?

This news is also this week’s not a competition quiz question.

#notacompetitionquizquestion

The question this week is, in what year did the Ramsbottom Rhythm and Blues Festival launch? This is, what you might say was the precursor to the Ramsbottom Festival. You’ll get the answer, a little bit later on in the show.

Have a listen to what The Met announced on their website today:

Since we created the festival we’ve seen big changes to the festival market, with more events than ever taking place in Manchester and Lancashire, some no doubt buoyed by what we achieve in Ramsbottom.

This means Head For The Hills as you know it will not take place in 2019. This will be a disappointment to some, but our plan is to come back with something brilliant in 2020.

The words that stand out for me there are “Head For The Hills as you know it will not take place in 2019”. As you know it. Does this mean there could be some smaller musical happenings under the Head for the Hills umbrella?

Who knows, but one thing’s for sure is that it will not be taking place at Ramsbottom Cricket club in 2019, and if rumours are to be believed it won’t in 2020 either, but they’re all rumours at present.

The reason The Met have decided against running the festival again in 2019 they state is: “for the first time since we started we weren’t able to grow and improve on the previous year to the level that we would have liked”…  “the decision to take a year out to improve our ability to deliver brilliant festivals in 2020 and beyond has been taken by us all”.

With regards to a potential site change, the FAQ on the Head for the Hills website says:

We’ve had a brilliant time at Ramsbottom Cricket Club over the last 8 years, and we know a number of local residents love having a festival of such high quality within walking distance. The current site has its challenges, but we love it. We’ll take this all into consideration while we plan how to deliver the best festival possible. We wouldn’t be doing it properly if we didn’t consider all the options open to us. As a Bury-based organisation, whatever happens we’ll be serving residents of the Bury area (and we do love it in Rammy).

How do you feel about this announcement? The Met is open to suggestions and comments, you can get hold of them by email on info@themet.org.uk

Velvet opens new shop on Bridge Street

Velvets old shop

Outside of those two big announcements, Velvet have just opened a fantastic new shop on Bridge Street, this is their second shop in Ramsbottom now since they moved from their old location on Square Street to the former premises of W & D Scholes on the corner of Bridge Street and Silver Street. This was a good move for them as it increased footfall significantly.

Velvets New Shop

Now, just a few years since that move, they have opened a second shop not far from Ramsbottom Station on Bridge Street in the former Natwest Bank building which sat next to the old Ramsbottom Police station. The new shop is aimed more at children’s clothes stocking some very fashionable items from ranges such as the high end Joules range of clothes.

Next up is the Ramsbottom News, however, before that I want to give you the answer to this week’s #notacompetitionquizquestion. The question this week was, in what year did the Ramsbottom Rhythm and Blue Festival launch. Think you got it? The answer was….. 2004. This was 7 whole years before the first Ramsbottom Festival.

Ramsbottom United Badge13:33 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

Ramsbottom United 2 – 1 Pickering Town (27th November)

Now, on to the regular Ramsbottom United section which is also newsworthy. For the first time since 2014, our fantastic Ramsbottom United have managed to get into the first round proper of The FA Trophy. This came about after we got a fantastic result at home to Pickering Town. Having already visited Pickering in the previous match where we held them to a 0-0 draw, Pickering were now the ones having to make the 100+ mile journey to Ramsbottom. That’s two long journeys we’ve had recently in the FA Trophy.

The Rams scored early on in the first half with a great goal from regular scoresheet feature and November player of the month Nic Evangelinos. Pickering Town were able to get an equaliser in the form of a penalty after a questionable decision by the referee. A nervous second half then continued but The Rams soon dominated sending in several shots on the Pickering Town goal mouth. We were able to finally get the ball in the back of the net on the 89th minute with a rocket from Kyle Jacobs. That was Kyles first goal for Ramsbottom since signing, however given he’s a defender I think that’s acceptable 🙂

Ramsbottom United 5 – 1 Yaxley (20th November)

The match before we played Pickering was a goal fest against Yaxley on our return leg at home. This was the match which took several hours of travel time for each time. We got a 1-1 result away but the reply ended in a 5-1 smashing. A thoroughly enjoyable match.

Ramsbottom United 2 – 3 Runcorn Linnets (1st December)

Sadly, our record unbeaten run of 13 games came to an end against 1st placed Runcorn Linnets on Saturday the 1st of December.

The next match for Ramsbottom is an away league game against Kidsgrove Athletic who are currently 13th in the table. Looking at their form and ours, there is a good chance this will end in a draw, which as an away fixture, I’ll take, but obviously I’d prefer the win.

This week, Ramsbottom sits a town divided. The division has been caused by two topics close to residents hearts. There has been a hive of activity on the website this month related to two posts in particular. These both concen the future of The Grants Arms and the specific have all been around the plans for The Grants Arms.

If you’re unfamiliar with The Grants Arms, it’s a large building pretty central to Ramsbottom sitting on Market Place in Ramsbottom.

I talked in more detail back in episode 114 where the discussion of the proposal of turning the building from a pub/hotel into offices first came up. On that episode, even I was divided so it’s understandable how the town as a whole is feeling.

The activity around this on the site this week blew up since I posted an appeal from John Ireland

However, the second topic that has divided Ramsbottom this week is also related to this week’s not a competition quiz question.

#notacompetitionquizquestion

The question is, in what year was the “Tilted Vase” sculpture by Edward Allington installed in Market Place? You’ll get the answer, a little bit later on in the show.

So, as I mentioned, The Tilted Vase has been the second topic that has the town divided. The reason being, there still seems to be a large number of residents who really, for want of a better word, can’t stand it.

Some on Facebook have even gone as far as to suggest that if you like it, you have to be from out of town. (anyone who hasn’t had at least seven generations born and bred in Ramsbottom could be classed as from Out of Town 😂)

Ramsbottom United Badge6:00 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

On the day that this podcast episode is released, Ramsbottom United will be facing Yaxley in the second leg of our FA Trophy match. It’s most likely that you’ll already know the result, however, as I don’t have a time machine let’s work with what I have.

As you know if you listened to the podcast last week, Ramsbottom United have been on a good run of form lately. We’re sitting nicely in fourth place in the Evostick West Division table and have already played away to Yaxley in that dreadful fixture hours away from home.

This good run of results has brought up another fantastic stat from our very own Ramsbottom United regular Katie Worsick, also know as Little Katie (at least on Twitter, I’m not sure about anywhere else). The stat is that currently, Ramsbottom United have 10 matches unbeaten, 9 of which have been under new manager Chris Wilcock.

Back in 2013/2014 season, we had a run of 10 unbeaten games (2 being draws and 8 of which were wins). Currently we’re matching this, albeit 4 draws and 6 wins. As the match we are playing tonight (or have played if you listen to this after Tuesday) is a reply match, it cannot end in a draw. We will either win, or lose. Good luck lads.

Next matches:

EVOSTIK LEAGUE WEST DIVISION
SATURDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2018 – 15:00
Droylsden vs Ramsbottom United

Droylsden are currently sixteenth in the league, and today they travel to Glossop North End for their FA Trophy match. I had a quick look on Google Maps and sadly, this isn’t quite the long journey we had to make last week as Glossops stadium is only eleven miles from Droylsden.

Just before I get to the shout outs, at the start of the show I asked you the #notacompetitionquizquestion which was “in what year was the “Tilted Vase” sculpture by Edward Allington installed in Market Place” Well, the answer was 1998, and this prompted some considerable social media interaction. I posted this little fact on the social media pages and there was considerable debate about it. Many of you have commented how the gardens were much nicer before, which in actual fact, they were pretty amazing.

Carole said: “Hate it. It is not in keeping with a lovely old town”

Angela says: “Everyone moaned at the time! (Probably me too!) but absolutely love it now!”

Celia says: “Still do not like it saw it put up not my cup of tea”

Jordan has gone so far as to state: “I must of put gallons upon gallons of fairy in that over the years!!”

Where do you stand on The Urn, if you’d like to have your say, you can get in touch here.

Thanks to all the new likers and followers of the This is Rammy social sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, including:

I gave a shout out last week on the podcast to Warren Hemmingway.

Another week and another episode of This is Rammy to hopefully help provide you with a little bit of “what’s going on” around Ramsbottom. This podcast cannot possibly begin to try to fill the gap of going out and experiencing it for yourself though, so if you’re local to Ramsbottom, please do remember to take advantage of all it has to offer. If you’re not, maybe it’s time to take a visit? We’d love to have you!

Of course, this past weekend saw Ramsbottoms Remembrance Service for Armistice Day marking 100 years since World War 1 ended. This is always an emotional time, but this year especially given the anniversary.

Mooch gift shop

Speaking of going out and experiencing it, this weekend me and my son were on a walk to Stubbins, well, I was walking and he was riding his bike. We got as far as the Papermill, we saw Euans garden which is just before the papermill as you’re leaving Ramsbottom on the right. Well, one thing I’d been obvious to was that there’s a new shop opened up called Mooch.

Mooch is a gift shop which is situated underneath what used to be Bevs Barbers, which is no Pink Rhino hairdressers. It’s opposite the big metal “Urn” in Market Place. You might easily miss it, as I have before as it’s down the small alley and there is a door on the left to enter.

Check out their Facebook Page and the next time you’re in Ramsbottom, poke your nose in and say Hi, I’ve been led to believe they’re quite lovely.

Ramsbottom United Badge6:30 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

As you may recall from last episode, Ramsbottom United had a bit of a journey to undertake for the next FA Trophy 2nd qualifying match. The match took place between Ramsbottom United and Yaxley, a journey of almost 160 miles each way on a Tuesday. Not only that but it wasn’t even real grass when they got there with Yaxley having a 3G pitch in place.

No doubt arriving tired after the long journey, the team had a tough task ahead of them. Yaxley went ahead early on at around 15 minutes after sustained attacks on our goal. This was Ramsbottoms first goal conceded in around 462 minutes of play, a feat in itself. Thankfully, United remained strong and were able to bring the score level around the hour mark with a goal from Ruben Jerome. His fourth goal in his last four matches. It got better as within five minutes of the goal from Jerome, Evangelinos was able to slot home his third goal in his last three outings.

Sadly, we were unable to keep this lead and Yaxley equalised. The game finished two all. The replay match will thankfully be played at home at the Riverside on the 20th of November, another Tuesday. This time though, it’s Yaxley who will need to make the horrendous journey to us, and they might be a little surprised to find real grass when they come to us.

The next match for Ramsbottom in the league is this Saturday, the 17th of November where we will play Colwyn Bay away. Kick off is at 3pm. Last season we played Colwyn three times, twice in the league and once in the cup. We managed a draw, loss and win last season. Currently Colwyn Bay are sitting in 11th in the league and Ramsbottom United are 4th after our fantastic recent run of form.

Another week and another new place to visit. This time in Holcombe, just opposite Hoysters Bar situated in Holcombe Mews. The building has previously been a bridal shop and most recently a children’s footwear shop.

The new tea shop is called Hollands at Holcombe and is being set up by Mother and Daughter team Ann and Shelley Holland’s. They are promising to offer a “Teastro” service (coming from a combination of Tearoom and Bistro) serving home cooked breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and homemade cakes.

I know me and the family will no doubt be nipping down the road to give it a try. I’m lucky I don’t generally put weight on otherwise since moving to Ramsbottom I’d be in real trouble with all these food venues opening.

Re-emergence of Country Club planning application

Only recently I’ve been talking about the planning application submission for The Grants Arms in Ramsbottom. It seems they’re a bit like buses in that no sooner than one application arrives, than another is close behind it. This time it’s another attempt at creating a Country Club in the Nuttall Lane/Whittingham Drive area of Ramsbottom. Bury Times have reported that the planning application includes leisure facilities, a restaurant and bar, three function rooms and car parking.

The developer had submitted similar proposals for the site last year, but were withdrawn months later after receiving over 500 objections. There are good points and bad points for this, the most obvious good points being that it’s more business for Ramsbottom with more jobs for local people. The bad news is that this area is already heavily congested with traffic due to the single access road of Nuttall Lane. You can comment on the project on the Bury Council Planning site where the application is listed under reference 64433.

Mary Bell Flying high at 100

Now for some lighter news, local Resident Mary Bell of Lavender Hills Residential Home decided that when she turned 100, she wouldn’t just sit around and watch the leaves fall out of her windows, no no, she had set her sights much more adventurous. Mary did apparently want to do a parachute jump, but that wasn’t possible, but she was able to fly over Ramsbottom in a light aircraft including taking control herself at one point. Hits Radio Manchester have a video of the action in their tweet here:

Ramsbottom United BadgeRamsbottom United News:

I don’t know about you, but I’m really loving this rejuvenated Ramsbottom United team under new manager Chris Willcock.

Ramsbottom have now won 5 games in a row under the new manager. Despite losing 6 players we’ve actually signed around 9 new players who are already making an impact at Rammy. You may remember that I mentioned last episode of the podcast the large number of players who left, I’ve since been told this is pretty standard when a new manager comes in. No players at Ramsbottom are under contract, so they are free to come and go as they like. Something I didn’t know at the time.

Although this week’s podcast is a little later than usual, I’m quite pleased as I’ve got even better news with regards to Ramsbottom than I would normally have. Off the back of our recent 3-0 win at Skelmersdale United (where incidentally we had a great turnout for travelling fans), as I record this, tonight we beat Prescot Cables 4-0 in the league to leapfrog them and a few others to sit nicely in 4th place in the league.

Not only that, but with tonight’s win, that means we’ve scored a whopping 12 goals in the last 4 games whilst conceding none. That’s worth shouting about alone.

TWe were due to play Yaxley or Wisbech in the FA Trophy Second Qualifying Round this Saturday the 10th of November, however a draw tonight means we’ll be playing the winner of that replay match the following Tuesday the 13th.

Originally, Yaxley were due to play Kidsgrove the other week in the First Qualifying Round but the game was postponed as Kidsgrove were found to have played an ineligible player in the previous round v Wisbech (Kidsgrove won that match). It was then decided by the FA that Kidsgrove were disqualified and Wisbech should play Yaxley instead. This isn’t good news as it means a long trip for our players and fans on a Tuesday, this trip would have been much better on the Saturday.

Before I move on though, ne more little fact, we’re just one win short from our best ever winning streak which was a run back in Nov/Dec 2014 where we had a 6 game winning streak under previous managers Johnson and Morley (the most successful managers in our history). Thanks to Ramsbottom United’s Little Katie for, well for pretty much all of the above really. You’re a star!

Welcome to this latest episode of the podcast. It’s been quite a bit colder these past few days, with Halloween quickly approaching I thought it would be an idea to look towards the upcoming bonfire and fireworks events around Ramsbottom.

Friday 2nd November

Starting off on Friday the 2nd of November, it’s probably the most well known and is certainly going to leave you open mouthed, it’s Ramsbottom Cricket Club. There’s a fair, food, drink, a mahoosive bonfire and some bangin’ fireworks. The fair starts from half past five, the bonfire will be lit shortly after from six o’clock with fireworks commencing at eight. There will also be a band on from 9pm too.

Advance tickets cost £4 for adults, five to fifteen year olds are £2 with under five year olds free. On the evening gate prices are £5 for adults and £3 for children. So an increase of £1.

Ramsbottom Cricket Club Bonfire & Fireworks 2018

Saturday 3rd November

The next two events take place on Saturday the third of November. The first of which is Woodbank Cricket Club. The club is roughly a ten minute drive from Ramsbottom Centre, so certainly one of the further events taking place. Much like Ramsbottom Cricket Club, there promises to be food, music, a fair and of course a bonfire and fireworks.

Gates open at 5:15, the bonfire is to be lit at 6:30 with the fireworks display planned for 7:45.

Woodbank Annual Bonfire & Fireworks Display 2018

49th Annual Bonfire and Firework Display 2018

Sunday 4th November

Last, but by no means least, we’ve got two more events on the Sunday.

First we’ve got the furthest of the events listed in this episode which is situated at Bury Football Club on Gigg Lane. Here’s the link to their Eventbrite page for this event.

Funfair & Fireworks at Bury Football Club 2018

The only free bonfire night event on my list is hosted at elevated food and drink venue the Shoulder of Mutton.

Ramsbottom United BadgeRamsbottom United News:

It’s all go at the Riverside recently, that’s not a metaphor either as just this past week we’ve seen six of our players leave the club.

Rob Henry and Jerome Wright have both left for EVO-STIK Premier Division teams with Rob going to Lancaster City and Jerome leaving for Hyde United. In addition to those two,  Curtis Jones has joined Glossop North End. Possibly unsurprising is that Rob Henry has left to join the team Lancaster City, Lancaster being the team that previous Ramsbottom manager Mark Fell is now managing.

As if losing those three players wasn’t enough we’ve also lost Ben Deegan, Phil Dean and Tom Brooks. Also, we’ve lost Andy Robertson, our goalkeeping coach who had stepped up to be Ramsbottom United manager for what I believe was just a day between Mark Fell leaving and current manager Chris Willcock joining.

Thankfully, it didn’t seem to affect the result of the next match as Rammy were away to Frickley Athletic in the FA Trophy qualifying round. An early attempt at goal from Nialle Rodney for Ramsbottom at 7 minutes was put into the back of their own net by a Frickley defender was the start of a great three nil win. Nialle then went on to score our second goal at 70 minutes with the final third goal from Ruben Jerome on 80 minutes.

Nice work boys, let’s keep up that moment going into the next match.

The next match for Ramsbottom is in the league away to Skelmersdale on Saturday the 3rd of November. Kick off is at 3pm.

 

Upcoming Events:

As this episode is one big list of upcoming events, I won’t list any more here, but just so you know, I am adding events into the events calendar when I get time, the last lot I completed in my lunch break from work. It’s a manual process and is slower, but they are more accurate at least.

I’m not sure if you noticed but Bury Times recently reported that the limbo building that is the Grants Arms is being reviewed to be converted into office space by Bolton based Financial Advisors Group IFA. The Grants closed back in September 2017 and since then has remained in a deteriorating condition. There has been an attempt to turn the building into sheltered housing that was denied by council officers.

This is the current premises of  Group IFA based out of Bradshaw in Bolton, image from Google Maps Streetview.

I’m honestly in two minds about this one. On the one hand, it’s sad to see the fantastic building sitting there wasting away when it has so much potential, potential that could easily be realised by the deep pockets of Group IFA. Then, on the other hand, it’s a bit sad that it’s been a hotel for so long and to remove a hotel from Ramsbottom which already has limited places to stay as it is seems to be a big shame.

What do you think? Do you think that to turn the Grants Arms from a pub/hotel into offices is worthwhile, as long as it saves the building? I’d love to hear your views with a comment below.

One example of a local pub which was successfully turned into offices is the Corner Pin in Stubbins where Elbow played their first gig, I’ve not heard anyone complaining about this since, have you?

To give you an idea of the history of the Grants Arms and what it means to Ramsbottom, I’ve included a clip from a video in the podcast that is available from the Ramsbottom Heritage Society.

18:26 – We’d all like a Plastic Free Ramsbottom, right?

Some people who certainly think so have formed a group calling themselves Plastic Free Ramsbottom. You’ll remember from last weeks episode that I told you about the fantastic job that Abbie from Fulfilled is doing, well this group, along with Abbie and other notable members of the community have had their first meeting and formed the group.

You can check out their group page on Facebook to find out a little more about what’s going on as well as help at their next event: Autumn beach & river clean

Ramsbottom United Badge21:05 – Ramsbottom United News:

So far so good for new manager Chris Wilcock as he led Ramsbottom United to a fantastic League Trophy win against Trafford FC.

The FA Trophy draw has taken place and we will go away to Frickley Athletic on Saturday October 27th. Frickley are currently sitting in 11th place in the Evo-Stik East Division which means they’re not going to be a walk in the park. Let’s hope for another good result from the lads there.

There have been quite a number of changes around Ramsbottom recently, not only have new places opened but there’s been some changes at Ramsbottom United this week too, so much to talk about but so little time! So let’s get on with the show.

No sign of Tom Cruise…

New cocktail bar Signature opened this weekend in the former Yummy Chinese building on Bridge Street. They had a pre-opening ticket only event on Friday the 5th of October and opened fully to the public on Saturday the 6th of October. Yummy was closed for what felt like an eternity, it was probably about 18 months or so and then popped up Signature. For a while it was rumoured to be a Gin emporium style affair but it appears to be more cocktails.

Josef making cocktails in XLII

One thing I did find out is that the general manager of Signature is previous barman and cocktail maker extraordinaire Josef from the wine bar 42 on Bolton Street. I can confirm that I have had one or two cocktails from Josef in the past. He’s a nice guy and always did a great job. I’ve put a photo on the website of him making us one back in 2016 around Christmas time. Up until I was researching for this episode of the podcast, I hadn’t realised he was involved with Signature, nice to see him sticking around in the area. Wishing you all the best with the business guys.

Lacy Days reopens with new style

Also, Lacy Days, the Prom and Bridal wear shop has changed owner. Julie Walker who had owned the business for many years has now retired and handed the keys to the diamante box to new owner Wendy. Wendy has already got stuck in and has done a fantastic job of the look of the shop. It’s now been painted in a stylish grey colour from the more cream like colours of before. There’s a picture on the show notes for this episode.

Italiahh-no!

Some sad news regarding the opening of the new Italian Tre Ciccio which was aiming to be open before Christmas in the former Venetian building, you might recall back in July 2016 there was a terrible fire.

The new plan for Tre Ciccio is that they are aiming to be open early next year. I’ve already asked if they would like to come on the podcast, and nearer the time to opening is when we’ll be looking to arrange this. Oh, I also forgot to mention, Tre Ciccio only went and won Pizza Chef of the year this past week down there in that there London in the National Pizza Awards. Now if that’s not a great sign, I don’t know what is. Bring on the future Ramsbottom awards!

Small but powerful.

There was a huge queue on opening day!

Fulfilled plastic free shop opened in early September and I totally forgot to mention it in the last episode. Owner Abbie Sellers had a dream to open somewhere in Ramsbottom a shop which ditches the plastic. So, in September, opening in the old House of Beer building Fulfilled started to help shoppers purchase things they need without the needless plastic packaging that is often added without good reason.

Now, if you’re older like me you’ll recognise the concept to be a bit like a little version of a “Weigh and Save”. A great thing though is the method by which the food is dispensed in Fulfilled being from bottom to top means that you won’t end up with the crappy food at the bottom being ancient like you would in a Weight and Save where they had big drums of food and you’d have to practically climb in to get what you need.

In addition to this, Abbie is dedicated to the cause and dedicated to customer service. I love seeing her updates on the Fulfilled Facebook page especially recently where a customer took in a recipe book with their children and Abbie helped them get all the ingredients they needed without any additional waist or expense. How many times have you had to buy a massive bag of something, or even a big tub of herbs when in actual fact, you only needed a teaspoon or two.

It’s great that Abbie has taken this leap, and one thing is for sure, she’s a PR genius having been in many local news sources as well as several national too. Nice work Abbie, thanks for helping to keep Rammy on the map.

Ramsbottom United BadgeRamsbottom United News:

It’s all change at Ramsbottom in the manager department again. Harry’s head must have been spinning given how fast this all appeared to play out in the news. Check out this, on Tuesday the second of October it was announced that previous manager Mark Fell had left Ramsbottom United to manage Lancaster United in the Evo-stik premier, the following day news was provided that Andy Robertson the goalkeeping coach had temporarily taken over the role of manager with Ramsbottom United accepting CV’s by email for the position. Then on the 4th of October it was announced that previous Ramsbottom United player Chris Willcock has accepted the position of manager.. That’s a busy three days guys, someone has to keep track of all this, write it down, and then report on it in an audio form you know!

Currently Ramsbottom United are sitting in 13th place after the draw with Chasetown at the weekend.

The next match for Ramsbottom United is away to Widnes on Tuesday the 9th of October.

I’m back! I thought given that today is International Podcast Day, it’s as good a day as any to bring the podcast back. Sorry for being away so long.

This episode of the podcast is a return to the regular form, I’ve got some news, events and some Ramsbottom United scores thrown in too.

2018 Head for the Hills Festival

Did you manage to get down to Head for the Hills festival? Me and my son did the usual of us going for the whole weekend. A little bit more expensive this year, in addition I had to pay for my son whereas in previous years under 6’s had been free. It was only a nominal amount, but I was slightly disappointed at that.

Can I honestly say I had as much fun as previous years? No. Something wasn’t quite clicking. It could have been the weather but there was clearly fewer people there this year than last year and there were also fewer stages setup. Could this be the beginning of the end for Head for the Hills being situated in Ramsbottom? I hope not, I’ll still go year after year whilst it’s here, but if it was to move away to Burrs for example, the lack of the convenience of just being able to wander down would likely mean me not going.

Don’t get me wrong, there were some really great things at the festival, it’s just this year felt a little muted.

New pub Holcombe Tap opens up

Since I last spoke to you a new pub has opened up. Situated in the locate of the old Masons Arms on Bolton Road West which closed in 2017, Holcombe Tap as it’s now called  is the project of Father and Son duo Bill and Will Gallie. Holcombe Tap opened on September the 7th 2018 and has already been receiving some great reviews from the community regarding the food, drink and most of all hospitality.

DJ Cycles to close

Just opposite where Holcombe Tap is located is well known and well loved Bike Shop DJ Cycles. DJ Cycles has been in business for 11 years in various locations but just this week owner Damian had this to say on their Facebook page:

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the closure of DJ Cycles on the 14th of October.
I would like to thank all my customers for your continued support over the last eleven years, I really couldn’t have done it without you all.
It hasn’t been an easy decision but ultimately it is the best decision for myself and my family.
Thanks once again for all the support you’ve given me. Damian

Hearts for Homes relocates to Bridge Street

Something else that has happened this weekend, Hearts for Homes have now relocated into their new shop in the former Bridge Street News Agents on well, Bridge Street in Ramsbottom. Hearts for Homes sells gifts and things for your home including a lot of Ramsbottom themed items. Congratulations Kerry and family on the move, I know it’s taken a lot of hard work and dedication but the effort has paid off, it looks fantastic. The new location on the busier side of Ramsbottom will no doubt increase footfall from local and visitor alike.

 

Ramsbottom United BadgeRamsbottom United News:

Ramsbottom United have had a half decent season so far in the Evo-stik West division (when did they change the name from Evo-stik North?!). Today Ramsbottom drew 2 all away to 15th placed Kendal Town. Ramsbottom currently sit in 11th place with a total of three wins, three draws and three loses to their tally.

The next match is on Tuesday the 2nd of October away to second place Prescott Cables. The next home match will be to second from bottom placed Chasetown on Saturday the 6th of October. Kickoff is at 3pm: Ramsbottom United vs Chasetown

In other news:

Manchester Evening News has reported numbers on how many food establishments have received a written warning and although for Bury 372 of the total 1551 establishments received written warnings, it is the smallest percentage for the 10 areas listed at just under 24% of all establishments having received a written warning. This is not just restaurants, this includes caterers, producers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers of food.

Area Total Eateries Written Warning Received Percentage of Total
Rochdale 1578 716 45.37%
Oldham 1787 715 40.01%
Tameside 1725 674 39.07%

Upcoming Events:

If you’re listening to this episode of the podcast the day it’s released which is the 30th of September, you might be on your way to the North Manchester Bike show at Ramsbottom Cricket Club, or maybe even off to Bleakholt for their open day.

Rake Hill Climb 2018 – October 7th

Rake Hill Climb 2018

One event that is certainly a regular feature on the annual calendar is the Rake hill climb. The organisers have already kindly been out leafleting the areas to let people know of the upcoming road closures.

This years Rake Hill Climb takes place on Sunday October 7th where roads will be closed from 11:30am until 2pm. If you’re unfamiliar with the Rake Hill Climb, it’s a road race where each rider sets off one at a time from Ramsbottom Library racing up to the top of The Rake, this is a very steep hill and even cars struggle going up it at times. Essentially, I still think they’re all mad. It’s a nice morning out though and it’s always appreciated if you can get out and get behind the riders, not physically of course, if you could get out of the way that would be appreciated more 😂

It’s coming up to the May bank holiday this weekend and one of the regular events on the Ramsbottom calendar around this time is the 1940s weekend, or war weekend as it was previously known but for obvious reasons this name fell out of fashion.

This time the 1940s weekend has had a bit of an overhaul and one person leading this charge was none other than Jane Pritchard of Mrs P’s Ice Cream.

I spoke with Jane off the Mic this weekend to find out more about what’s been going on. She told me that the event has been funded by local businesses in Ramsbottom, 40 of them in total, each of which has donated £30 to put the event on. As well as that, they’ve managed to rope in the window cleaner to hang the bunting of which there is 800 meters up and down Bridge Street.

So, let me get to what you’re wanting to know, exactly what is going to be happening at the 1940s weekend. Well, as always there will be a large presence from East Lancs Railway including them bringing some additional vehicles down from Bury to Ramsbottom to be put on display.

The schedule for East Lancs Railway events is:

Saturday 26 May 2018

Kelly Ann Waldie Ramsbottom Station Music & Dancing 10 am 4 pm
Battle Re-Enactment Ramsbottom Station Battles & Re-Enactments 2:50 pm 3:10 pm
