Woodland Management – Friday 28 January

Hi

Welcome to another year! The group started 9 years ago and is continuing the good work.

We are meeting at Old Kays Park on Friday 28 January at 10am.

Up until now we have not worked in Old Kays Park, but Storm Arwen brought down some trees which require maintenance, plus other work in the park.

A map is attached of the meeting point. This is the car park at Old Kays Park on the corner of Holly Mount Lane. The car park is small so please, if you come by car, park so as many vehicles can get in the space as possible.

See you Friday and let us hope for good weather.

All the best,

Alistair

Vaccination clinics:

 Please find attached details of next week’s vaccination clinics.

All clinics are both walk-in or pre-book when people are due their vaccination.  We have another clinic as noted for young people aged 12 to 15 years running at Radcliffe on Thursday (second dose is 12+ weeks after the first). 

Thanks for your continued support in promoting these clinics

Ramsbottom Town Centre Plan – Please share your views and encourage others to do so.

                                        The plans can be viewed at Ramsbottom Library

                                       The consultation is open for six weeks from until the 15 February 2022

The Ramsbottom Town Centre Plan ( DRAFT) is now available for you to view and comment on at https://www.bury.gov.uk/ramsbottomtcplan

The draft plan sets out a vision for Ramsbottom Town Centre which will support the town’s ongoing success and guide future interventions for the next 10 to 15 years and identifies a series of potential physical improvement projects to enhance Ramsbottom as a place to live, work and visit.

These potential projects include

  • a new public square and events space in the core town centre to provide the infrastructure to support the delivery of events and to act as a meeting place.
  • improved public realm to provide a network of better-connected streets and spaces by improving existing infrastructure and creating new focal spaces and pedestrianised areas.
  • improved active travel opportunities through strategic pedestrian and cycle links, connecting valuable green assets and amenities to the town centre such as Nuttall Park and new links to the river frontage.
  • a new enterprise centre utilising Market Chambers and the vacant upper floor of the Civic Hall to provide accommodation for a range of self-employed, freelance businesses and business start-ups, along with those residents seeking flexible and agile business space.
  • a Car Parking Strategy which proposes short stay car parking in the heart of the town, and an edge of centre provision which can accommodate longer stay and event parking.

The consultation is open for six weeks from until the 15 February 2022

We are asking that, where possible, that you share your views using the online questionnaire which can be accessed via the main webpage https://www.bury.gov.uk/ramsbottomtcplan

However feedback can also be shared as follows

  • By email to:[email protected]
  • In writing to: Strategic Planning and Infrastructure (Ramsbottom Town Centre Plan ) 3 Knowsley Place, Bury BL9 0EJ

Money donations are also gratefully received.

They also operate a baby / family clothing and equipment bank from the centre, donations of clean, undamaged clothing and baby equipment are always welcome.

If you wish to make a donation, or if you, or anyone you know needs assistance they are open from 9am – Noon on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
