There’s a number of changes happening in Ramsbottom currently. There’s gas pipes being changed, several buildings being renovated ready for new businesses (The Masons, Yummies, Toppings Butchers, The Venetian) and there’s a Cake Sale coming up in Ramsbottom Fire Station (see below).
What do you think about all the changes happening around Ramsbottom currently? I’d love to hear from you, click on the comments box below or leave me a voicemail and you might hear yourself on the show (unless you ask me not to):
It’s sort of a tradition amongst Podcasters to do something slightly different for their episode 100, so for the episode 100 of This is Rammy I’m going to take you to three places in Ramsbottom.
The They are The East Lancashire Railway Station, Nuttall Park by the River and Bridge Street on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Just a few of the places I think help to provide sounds of Ramsbottom.
The crazy thing is, I thought this moment would be a great grand point in the podcast but it’s actually ended up giving me a case of “Podcasters Block”. That is now put to rest, and it’s onwards and upwards from here.
I hope you like this break away from the regular podcast and that you come back with episode 101 where I’ll have another interview with a member of our fantastic community.
Thanks for sticking with the podcast for so long, especially in these past few months where I’ve been otherwise engaged with the birth of my daughter, caught up in the enormity of an “episode 100” and other things that get in the way of producing the podcast.
If you happened to be watching MasterChef: The Professionals on December the 21st on BBC One you might have noticed some familiar sights whilst one of the contestants was talking.
That’s right, Ramsbottom was filmed (but labeled as Bury) for MasterChef.
We’re well known for putting on fantastic events and festivals here in Ramsbottom, but have you heard of the Ramsbottom Christmas Tree Festival? This event is starting on the 1st of December down at Dundee United Reformed Church.
Local shops and businesses will provide a Christmas tree to Dundee United Reformed Church decorated in their own style. There will be raffles for some fantastic prizes and money raised will go towards Speakeasy Ramsbottom which is a specialist aphasia charity based in Ramsbottom.
It starts on Friday the 1st of December and the Mayor will be opening up at 1pm on that day.
