Welcome to the Ramsey 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Ramsey as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Ramsey with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
This ‘Time for a Change’ event brought together residents, voluntary and community organisations and local authority officers and members who have some connection with Ramsey Million – the Big Local partnership in Ramsey. This is a summary of the discussions around: • what is changing in Ramsey, • the extent to which Ramsey Million is contributing to making a difference in the area, • how residents can drive change in their communities and the implications of this for future policy and practice.
We’re really excited to reveal our provisional plans for an extension to Ramsey Cricket Club for general community use. After 3 years of extensive research, consultation and audit of all the available community buildings in Ramsey we are delighted to report that Ramsey Million, Ramsey Neighbourhoods Trust and Ramsey Cricket Club are working together with the aim of making this building a reality.
Alconbury Weald is an extensive development approx. 10miles from Ramsey. On this 1,420 acre site around 8,000 jobs will be created; 5,000 homes; 700 acres of green open space and a range of transport, energy and community the next 20 years. Ramsey Million feel it is important to create links with this project to be able to offer employment and training opportunities for our residents and young people. With this in mind Ramsey Million contributed £4,000 towards the Top Secret Project.
