On this week’s episode of This is Rammy I got to speak to Lisa Coulborn who is opening up her new childrens shoe shop Little Goody New Shoes on Bridge Street in the very near future. It’s situated in the building which was previously Purple Tiger and has a great placement on Bridge Street. Lisa also tells me that the shop has previously been a shoe shop multiple times.
As well as this, recently had my son’s second birthday, and talk about change. He has now mastered the art of crying when he wants something, however it’s more of a petty wail. We’re seeing through it, but it’s still hard. Can’t quite believe I have a two year old, but I’ve loved every minute so far, even the hard parts.
Speaking of which, I’ll be taking him to the upcoming motorbike show happening in Rammy.
It’s called the North Manchester Custom and Classic Bike Show and it’s happening the weekend after the Ramsbottom Festival on Sunday the 27th of September. I’ve had this in my calendar for a while as my son is obsessed with bikes, in all forms, but he does like the bikes that go “rmmmm”
As well as this, I’m excited this week as it’s the New Media Europe weekend, this is what I’ve been banging on about week after week, as it includes the UK Podcasters awards. This is where the podcast has been nominated for an award by our audience. Which is a prize in of itself! Thanks for all your hard work, and dedicated voting.
It’s finally open, Ramsbottom Taps, the North Korea of bars when it comes to information is finally open.
Ramsbottom Taps opens it’s doors for the first time, as you may recall, I wrote about how the whole town was in shock at the closure of First Chop, one of the quirkiest jewels in the Ramsbottom crown for drinking establishments. A place which wouldn’t have felt out of place in a trendy area of Manchester.
Well, it’s back, however, it is no longer called First Chop. It’s now called Ramsbottom Taps, you might have seen the change of signs on everything but the lamp (I’d expect those are difficult and costly to change).
Ramsbottom United have lost another match, this time away to Darlington 2-1. Sadly, the injection of new blood by Charlie Russell wasn’t enough to overcome the determination by Darlington. We’re still looking for our first win, but I’ve got a feeling, it’s coming soon, each match we’re improving and growing in confidence, we just need to believe we can win.
As you hear this, Ramsbottom United are next at home to Stamford on Saturday the 19th, kick off is at 3pm.
Although we’ve had a pretty bad start to the season, it’s still a great day out to go and see Ramsbottom play. So, just a request from me, if you’ve never been to a Ramsbottom United match before, go this Saturday, it’s the Saturday before the Ramsbottom Festival, go down, take your family and a flask of tea, and just have a laugh, it’s a great few hours out, and with the town behind them, I’m sure they’ll bring in the first win of the season.
