Greenest Thumb Award "Best Kept Allotment Garden"

This was the 1st year that the Mayor of Ramsey and her consort had taken on the task of judging the "Greenest Thumb Award" for the "Best Kept Allotment Garden" and presented the winner and runners up with their certificates and prize on Sunday the 11th July.

Congratulations to all Ramsey Town Council Allotment Garden Holders on the excellent condition of their plots.
It was an exceptionally difficult task to pick a winner as there were several outstanding contenders for the title of "Best Kept Allotment Garden".
However, after taking into consideration numerous factors, including the "rabbit proofing" measures taken by allotment holders and the fact the produce was particular impressive taking into account the unusual fact that we have had little or no rain for a considerable time.
The winner was Mr Melvyn Bagnall, followed by Mr Colin Bass as a very close runner up and Mr Brian Adams in 3rd position.

It was also noted that Mr Benjamin Greenwood has been an allotment holder on site for an impressive 21years.

Councillor Mrs Pat Taylor
Mayor of Ramsey

Ramsey Public Toilets

April Fools Joke? No way!!! (If only...)

After eight weeks of inconvenience, Ramsey now has 'a Convenience'. The Public Toilets in Ramsey were closed on January 23rd 2010 by Luminus, without prior notification of the closure being forwarded to Ramsey Town Council. The Mayor and Town Clerk heard of the impending close 'along the local grapevine' on Friday 22nd January; they then spent the remaining working time available attempting to contact various officials at Huntingdon District Council - all to no avail.

Huntingdon District Council was officially responsible for the Public Toilets in all the market towns under its jurisdiction until April 1st 2010; it has failed in its duty to the residents of Ramsey. No attempt was made by Huntingdon District Council to provide temporary toilets, although they knew when the closure was due to take place.

Ramsey Town Council has, after considerable hours of attempting to negotiate with Huntingdon District Council now put in place a temporary toilet, which is located in the Mews Car Park, in the centre of the town.

The Ramsey Town Council precept for the coming year HAS NOT BEEN INCREASED, but temporary arrangements will inevitably involve extra expense, which possibly should be shouldered by Huntingdon District Council. Ramsey has come out very much as the poor relation. facilities such as toilets are a necessity in all towns, but in particular, in a rural area such as Ramsey where people come into the town from the surrounding villages.

Commenting on the situation with which the town was faced, Mayor Pat Taylor observed, "Huntingdon District Council has been extremely remiss in making the decision to cease responsibility for the Public Toilets in its care - I hope that some of the District Councillors will flush with embarrassment."

Despite the claims of various individuals, this is an initiative which has been driven and delivered by Ramsey Town Council - support from various quarters has been appreciated, but ultimately, it was only the persistence and determination of Ramsey Town Council which ensured that this valuable resource for the town was reinstated.
