Before the fens were drained, Ramsey was an island in the Fens. The Main Street in Ramsey is the Great Whyte which extends right down to the Mere. The Mere used to supply the town with eels, fish and fowl and a means of transport.

The town of Ramsey was built up around the gate of Ramsey Abbey. The Abbey was governed by an Abbot, who in the early years also controlled most of what went on in the Town. Ramsey was visited by King Edward III with his mother and Roger Mortimer. The people of Ramsey accused the Abbots of taking a large amount of the Hugh le Despenser Treasury. The Abbots appealed to the Bishop of Ely for support against the charges. This could be one of the reasons for the omission of Ramsey in the Doomsday Book.

Ramsey is one of the five principle towns in the District of Huntingdonshire, the others being the administrative centre of Huntingdon, St Ives home of the Chapel on the Bridge, St Neots the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire and the Roman town of Godmanchester.

My WiggleWaggle Tuesday; Fun with shapes!!

Little ones love using their bodies and spending fun times with their grown ups ! What can be more fun than watching mum be come a star and then having ago . Or seeing dad make a triangle shape and trying to copy too !!! Then everyone making a circle together and having a good old sing.
The Circle Song !!
This song is one of my Wigglers favourites. The tiny babies just love being swayed to the beat and hear their special adults singing voice. The sitting up ones love to clap their hands and have mum help them tap their knees. Toddlers and older beam at the fun of having a shout and often take the opportunity to make their own little noise or shout "hurray" as loud as they can
For me I just love watching and being part of the lovely relationships that our built and developed while we spend time having fun together.
It always makes me smile seeing the little people turn into little stars as their characters show. Click the link to hear the song :)
