Welcome to another episode of This is Rammy, this week in the run up to Valentine’s Day I’m having a bit of a love-themed episode.
In the week that Manchester was voted number 8 in a list of “The Happiest Places to work” in The Guardian I thought it would be good to get a head start on Valentine’s Day.
You’ll hear from Cheryl of Highfields Florists, Mike from The Card Shop and a special word from Stuart of The Vineyard on how he has love in a bottle!
Don’t forget that this is a podcast episode post, so you see that little play button up near the top left?
Give it a press to hear this episode in all it’s glory.
Even better, if you subscribe to the podcast, you’ll get it into your podcast player of choice or a link to the post emailed to you each week – so no searching around.
It feels fairly strange doing a podcast episode about Valentine’s day, mainly because I’m not exactly great at it. I’ve done things in the past such as took a half day of work and cooked my wife a full meal from scratch with homemade heart shaped pasta but in general, I’m not fantastic at it.
So I thought I’d get some help, in the form of Cheryl of Highfields, Mike from The Card Shop and Stuart from The Vineyard with all of them coming together to form a three-pronged attack in mission “keep the wife happy”.
For example, did you know that the original flower of Valentine’s day was actually the Tulip? Oh, you did? See, I told you I’m not best suited for this, which is why I have these three Ramsbottom local businesses owners to help.
Check out the podcast episode to hear what each had to say.
Here are some of the upcoming events on the Ramsbottom calendar, check out the events calendar here for most upcoming Ramsbottom events.
Here is a selection of three popular destinations for Valentine’s Day if you and your loved one want to venture out into the fantastic Ramsbottom night – probably take an umbrella, you know what our weather is like.
Please please ring to book as I cannot confirm that they have any places available:
Lolo’s has a set three-course menu featuring a variety of lovely vegan and raw treats for all your love birds. In addition, to the three courses, there is also a mysterious comment on the menu promising “Chocolate Surprise” per couple. If it’s anything like my type of surprises, it will be “Surprise! I’m out of chocolate”
