Ramsbottom Young People’s Community Choir launches
Having launched just last week, the Ramsbottom Young People’s Community Choir is fresh and looking for children to come and have a go.
I talk to Karen Lindop on the podcast this week and she tells me that the Ramsbottom Young People’s Community Choir was created when one of the children basically asked Karen to put it together as she was not old enough to join the adult choir.
Karen tells me that the hope is that the children will be able to join in the performance near Christmas and as such, the sooner you join the quicker you’ll be able to learn the songs.
The choir is for children aged from 7 to 13 and it takes place at St Andrews Church on Tuesday nights during term time from 5:15pm until 6:15pm, you can drop your child off, go have a coffee/wine or even a shop and come back an hour later.
It’s just £6 per session or you can block book 4 sessions for £20.
You can call or TXT Karen on 07957 814 298 or you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
Christmas is cancelled!
Well, not quite, but no doubt you’ve heard that we’re not having a Christmas Market this year? Every year thousands of people flock to Ramsbottom for our variety of festivals and events and two of the biggest on the calendar are our Chocolate Festival and the Christmas Markets.
Both of these events are organised by Ramsbottom Markets
The news broke of this and one of the popular Ramsbottom Facebook Groups was quickly on the scene and has at the time of recording amassed over 160 comments. Terri Fletcher has been doing her best to answer the vast majority of questions there, should you want to see the response you can see the post here: What’s on in Ramsbottom
Bonfire night shenanigans
This year, I didn’t go to the Ramsbottom Cricket Club bonfire night… I know, I know, but I did however go to the Greenmount Scouts Bonfire Night for the first time and, well it was fantastic!
The bonfire and fireworks were great, maybe the fireworks weren’t quite as spectacular as Ramsbottom Cricket Clubs, but what won me over was the old school games. There were an amazing 22 stalls doing everything from hook a duck to splat the rat to tombola. Really well organised and the effort involved needs applauding.
