Community Engagement in Ramsbottom

Your Councillors recently attended two community engagement events.

The first event, was the ‘Ramsbottom, Tottington and North Manor Neighbourhood Engagement’ event at Ramsbottom Cricket Club.

This was an opportunity for residents, local community groups, local Councillors, businesses and anyone who lives, works or has an interest in the area to get together and help shape our town and villages.

Exhibitors included Bury Council, GM Police, NHS, Friends of Nuttall Park, Friends of Ramsbottom Civic Hall, Incredible Edible Ramsbottom and a host of other local groups.

 

We hope to repeat the event soon.

The second event was a pitch by local community groups for funds from the Council for their local projects.  Bury Council were offering these community groups a chance to secure up to £1,000 each for local projects that actively contribute to the health and wellbeing of residents within our area.

Approximately 200 residents and groups attended the event at Holcombe Brook Tennis Club and many local groups were successful in obtaining funds.

There will be another round of funding available in Spring 2018.

Should you be involved in a local community group or project in or around Ramsbottom, then please do contact us at rammycouncillors@aol.com for details.
