Now, this might not be your first choice for podcast subject matter, you know, mortgages, *yawn*, but hear me out.

You’d think being a mortgage advisor would be a pretty uneventful job, well, nothing could be more from the truth.

Dave talks about having to rescue his business physically, his bit of a love in for one of Ramsbottoms iconic local buildings, and Dave opens up about his favourite local Ramsbottom cafe.

Dave’s a self confessed property geek, he LOVES the history in the buildings in Ramsbottom and even dug out the history of the building they moved in to.

I really enjoyed the interview with Dave and since, he and Charles Lous have been getting stuck in with contributing to the local community including getting involved with Litter Picking Ramsbottom.

It might surprise you to learn that Bartisserie, which is situated at the top of Bridge Street facing the Tilted Vase/Urn is coming up to its one year anniversary since opening.

That time feels like it has flown by, and as restaurants tend to be judged on if they can survive the first six months, Ethan of Bartisserie has done amazingly well.

I caught up with him where he explains a bit about Bartisserie, his background in being a pastry chef, the famous people he’s served as well as the biggest mistake he’s ever made.

He also went back to his school Bury Grammer where he put on a cookery class 🙂

Ramsbottom United Badge0:00 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

Last episode I explained how Ramsbottom United were through to the play-offs. Sadly, we were unable to find a way through Radcliffe Boroughs defence and they were just too powerful for us on the counter.

This was my first away match with Ramsbottom, timing worked well, unfortunate result though. Regardless of this, we’ve had a fantastic season, to get to the play-offs from where we were is nothing less than amazing, and who can forget how far we went in the trophy too?

Thanks for joining me on a relatively laid back episode of the podcast this week. The amazing weather we’ve had over the bank holiday weekend means that I’ve been spending lots of quality time with my family and all of it, pretty much has been centred around Ramsbottom.

It’s one of the brilliant things about our town in that you can still do plenty and not travel, although I did go to Rawtenstall to get some compost. I’m going to bore you here but they had a great deal on compost in B&M, instead of £8 for 120 litres, it was £5, and as I had recently built two large raised beds, I needed a lot. This involved two trips, once to Rawtenstall where I picked up 7 120 litre bags and a trip later to Bury for 8 120 litre bags. Turns out, I could do with another one ideally. Anyway, they’re done now at least, so it’s time to actually plant things in them, but there’s a part of me that’s looking at them and just wants to them to remain pristine and perfect, but that’s silly.

All of this had meant me spending more time in the sun than I usually should. I generally burn at the slightest gap in the clouds.

Two things I’ve noticed whilst being out in the garden Ramsbottom this weekend. One, deer will actually come far closer to your property than you realise. I found this whilst working in my garden, turns out a baby deer had wandered into the wooded area at the back. This isn’t exactly the middle of the woods, but clearly it had gotten in there somewhere.

The second was that Ramsbottom seems to have had an invasion of these little beetles, I’ve had a look online but I can’t find specifically what they are. Someone said Scarab Beetles, but I don’t think they are.

#notacompetitionquizquestion

This week’s question is: “In what year was the Ramsbottom Horticultural Society formed?”

The answer to this episodes #notacompetitionquizquestion will be revealed a little later on in the podcast episode.

Ramsbottom United Badge14:43 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

Ramsbottom United had a tough match ahead of them which was against Radcliffe FC. Currently second in the league, we were able to hold them to a nil nil draw at Radcliffe which is fantastic.

Our next match is against Kidsgrove Athletic at home on Saturday the 27th of April. Kick off is at 3pm.

If we get a draw, that should be enough for us to be in the play offs. If we lose, we’re reliant on a bit of luck from the results of the teams around us going against them.

If you are able, please come to the last match of the season where we’re looking for a win ideally.

Once again, Ramsbottom has featured in The Times best places to live article. I believe we have slipped a little, maybe two or three places as we’re currently 9th for the whole of the North West region. I think we were sixth last year.

You might be wondering how The Times comes up with their list of “Best Places”, well I was too, so I had a look into it. This is what they say:

“We use robust statistics, consider a wide range of factors, from jobs, schools and broadband speed to culture, community spirit and local shops, and combine it all with our expertise and insight.”

I think that’s a fair enough list of criteria to be judged against, I wonder if there was anything here that let us down or if they other places just got better since last year.

Here are this years North West Region best places to live for 2019:

    1. Kirkby Lonsdale
    2. Altrincham
    3. Bollington
    4. Cartmel
    5. Knutsford
    6. Liverpool: Aigburth
    7. Manchester: Ancoats
    8. Manchester: Levenshulme
    9. Ramsbottom
    10. West Kirby

There’s a few in there I’ve not heard of before, couldn’t point to them on a map at all. Quite interesting that Altrincham has slipped too, they were last years winners for our region.

One of the reasons we feature regularly in things such as The Times Best Places to live is due to our vibrant nightlife and foodie scene, one of the jewels in our crown is the heavily awarded Levanter, who on the 6th of April turned 5 years old! Congratulations and thank you to the whole team of Levanter for raising the bar.

Ramsbottom United Badge5:56 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

Ramsbottom United 4 – 0 Droylsden

If you’ve listened to the podcast before, you’ll certainly have heard me talk about Nic Evangelinos. Not only is he our highest goal scorer with 27 goals across all competitions but he scored all four goals in our last match against Droylsden on the 6th of April. It took just six minutes for us to get the first goal after Jamie Rainford won a penalty after being taken out in the area. The penalty was taken and scored by Nic. What could be the fastest ever hat trick for Ramsbottom (maybe?) Nic went on to score two more goals with the third being on just 11 minutes.

Ramsbottom had three penalties awarded in total. One which was saved by the keeper, but the other two taken by Nic were put away.

What a fantastic match to witness, hopefully you were able to get down.

There are now just three matches left in the league, with two of them being at home. A massive match will be our Away game to Radcliffe Borough who are currently sitting second in the league, a win there would surely secure our playoff position. As they are currently battling it out to be league winners, there’s no way they’re going to give us an easy ride.

One other thing of note, Ramsbottom United Captain Tom Kennedy has made the Evo-Stik West Team of Year! Congratulations Tom, very well deserved.

It has been a crazy week for Andy Smith, owner of Signature Bar.

On Thursday he was shocked to find that he was unable to get into his own bar. On this episode I speak to him to find out what happened and where he goes from here.

Something you might not be aware of as I certainly wasn’t, Andy is only 21 yet has been running this successful business in Ramsbottom since October.

It’s clear to me from speaking to Andy that he has his business at the forefront of his mind and is working towards making it a continued success.

This issue has not only made him stronger but that Signature Bar will continue to have the existing high standards that the customers expect.

They have some big things planned for this weekend, naturally Andy would have liked to have had the bar open for Mother’s Day weekend and he feels terrible to have had to let so many people down due to the incident.

Ramsbottom United Badge15:55 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

The last time I spoke to you I told you that there were two relatively straight forward matches coming up, well, how wrong was I?

Ramsbottom United 1 – 2 Newcastle Town

On Tuesday the 26th of April Ramsbottom United faced Newcastle Town at home, a match which should have been an almost guaranteed win, especially given our form recently and given the last time we faced them we were away and won 6-0. Sadly, it wasn’t to be. Newcastle Town arrived with a different script scoring in the first 5 minutes. Time ticked on but a goal from Kyle Jacobs just before half time brought the match level at 1-1. Despite many chances in the second half, the only goal was scored by Jordan Cole with a wonder free kick from the edge of the area. The match ended 2-1.

Runcorn Linnets 1 – 2 Ramsbottom United

It’s not all bad news though, our next match away to Runcorn Linnets, fellow promotion chasers was a successful result. Runcorn took the lead at just under the half hour mark with a goal from Mitchell Bryant. We were hoping this wasn’t going to be a repeat of the previous match, but knowing what was at stake, the guys dug deep and shortly after Runcorn player Peter Wylies handball gifted us a penalty, it was Nic Evangelinos who was able to keep his composure and convert the penalty.

A second goal was scored for Ramsbottom by Jamie Rainford on 66 minutes, this goal being his seventh consecutive away match goal.

The whistle was finally blown and our fantastic away form of 13 wins is testament to manager Chris Willcock and the brilliant season we’ve had so far.

This result means that Ramsbottom are currently third in the league with 34 matches played on 64 points. Second place is Radcliffe FC with 32 matches played and 65 points with fourth placed Runcorn Linnets on 62 points with 33 matches played.

There are now just four more matches until the end of the season.

Ramsbottom is to have a cycle shop again

Ramsbottom Cycle Shop due to open. Carl Ashworth, owner of The Bike Fitting Room in Prestwich is opening a shop in Ramsbottom in the former premises of DJ Cycles on Bolton Road West.

The current plan is to have it open for the first week of April, providing sales, servicing, repairs and free coffee to cyclists on a Sunday morning between between 9-10.

The Bike Fitting Room will be based here by appointment, private maintenance sessions by appointment and no doubt Carl will bring other ideas forward once he gets going. Great to see a bike shop opening up again in Ramsbottom.

The return of the: #notacompetitionquizquestion

In what year was Ramsbottom formally made a town?

The answer to this episodes #notacompetitionquizquestion is revealed later on in the podcast episode.

Funding Achieved for local litter heroes

Litter Picking Ramsbottom were successful in obtaining funding through “The Pitch” for funds for an Anti Litter campaign and equipment.

You apply with an itemised list on an application form. So the amount is set at £1377, which is what we asked for. But we can choose to spend it on something that’s not on the list as long as it’s in keeping.

Ramsbottom United Badge6:05 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽

Droylsden 2 Ramsbottom United 3

Tuesday 19th March 2019

The match started well with an early goal for Ramsbottom at just under 5 minutes from Jamie Rainford. Sadly, Rammy went down to ten men early on with the sending off of Kelvin Lugsden at 26 minutes. Droylsden were them able to pull one back at around the half hour mark with a goal from Oli Ford. The match continued to be played well by the ten men of Rammy, and this was shown with another goal from Jamie Rainford at around an hour on the clock. Not long after, Droylsden were able to pull another back to bring it to 2-2 with very little time left on the clock for Ramsbottom to get a good result. Much to our relief, our talisman Nick Evangelinos managed to put a final one away in the dying minutes bringing the match to a conclusion shortly after with the result 3-2 to Ramsbottom.

Ramsbottom United 2 Prescot Cables 0
Saturday 23rd March 2019

Ramsbottom hosted Prescot Cables at the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium. Going in as favourites to get a result, Ramsbottom did great by getting an early goal, another from Jamie Rainford, that’s three goals in the last two matches he’s scored, not that I’m complaining.

On 81 minutes, on his debut, Spencer Harris managed to score a cracking header from the cross of Nick Evangelinos. This win puts us very much within a shot of the Playoffs. There are now only six matches left of the season, we need to be getting more of these results, especially from teams we should be knocking five past.

Of the remaining matches, four will be at home and just two away.

As the league currently stands, we’ll be playing 15th placed Newcastle Town on Tuesday the 26th of March at home.

On Saturday the 30th we’re playing 4th placed Runcorn Linnets away, very important and difficult match there.

We’re playing 13th placed Droylsden again this time at home on Saturday the 4th of April.

Saturday the 20th of April sees us facing 5th placed Mossley in Ramsbottom, another tough match.

The last two matches are away to Radcliffe Borough on Monday 22nd of April who are currently 2nd in the league and the final match will be at home to Kidsgrove Athletic on the 27th of April who are currently 11th.

We’ve clearly got some tough matches coming up with half of our last six matches being with teams also competing for a playoff place.

Ramsbottom United currently sit third in the league with our win over Prescot Cables on Saturday pushing us up from fourth. We have played 32 matches and have 61 points. Atherton who are currently first in the league have played 30 matches and have 63 points.
