This weather is ridiculous 🌧☂ , but we’re northern, we’ll get on with it.
Today me and my family visited Burrs Country Park, not for the first time. If you’re unfamiliar, let me give you some information.
Burrs has a mixture of open spaces, woodlands, river, ponds and canal.
It is excellent for walking, running, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, bird watching, nature study and picnicking. Also, it has an excellent café (The Lampost Cafe) and pub (The Brown Cow) also the East Lancs railway has a station in the park.
That information was primarily sourced from the Fields in Trust website, which coincidentally, has Burrs nominated for an award, it just takes our votes.
You can vote for Burrs Country Park on The Fields in Trust website.

6:05 – Ramsbottom United News: ⚽
The league has returned and a few changes have happened. Firstly, it’s no longer the EvoStik league, after several years of it being called that and me getting used to it, it’s now the BetVictor league, which no doubt will mean I’ll call it the EvoStik league on the podcast at some point during the season.
The start for Ramsbottom has been great. We were at home to Widnes and the signs weren’t looking great when they managed to get two goals with no reply from us, however on 47 minutes with Iyrwah Gooden through on goal Widnes player Danny Shaw brought him down resulting in a red card.
Half time arrived and with Widnes down to 10 men hope was there to get something out of the match.
This was quickly realised with the restart of the match where Nic Evangelinos just a couple of minutes after starting the half scored our first goal. The second goal for Rammy was from Iyrwah Gooden after a free kick from Tom Kennedy, and that name came up again when 90 minutes Ruben Jerome scored a header from from a Tom Kennedy cross.
