About Us


Welcome to our Website. On this site we will try to explain all about the Ramsbottom branch of Bury Conservative Association.

Who are we?

Ian Schofield is your local Conservative Councillor for Ramsbottom Ward.

Ian Schofield was first elected to Bury Council in May 2016 and his term of office expires in May 2020. Ian is a member of the Planning Committee.

Ian is supported by local Conservative activists here in Ramsbottom, Shuttleworth, Holcombe and Hawkshaw.

Our costs are met from donations from local residents – not from the taxpayer.

Which geographical areas do we represent?

The area covered by Ramsbottom Ward stretches from the village of Shuttleworth bordering Edenfield in the east, the town of Ramsbottom itself, including the large Whittingham Drive estate, the village of Holcombe in the north of the Ward, parts of rural Hawkshaw and the edge of Holcombe Brook in the west.

There were 11,700 people in Ramsbottom Ward at the last census count, and over 5,000 homes.
