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.

  • Create-Fest
    July 13, 2019      Film
    The 3rd FREE Ramsey community music festival 'CREATE-Fest' was another great success. Over two thousand local people (a quarter of our Big Local Area's population), spent the day together listening and watching community music/dance acts who shared the stage with professionals. Community stalls, bouncy castles and zorbs ensured there was something for everyone. The day would not have been possible without support from local businesses and volunteers from the community including first time volunteers from the new Ramsey Timebank.

    Connecting Our Community
    April 1, 2019      Text
    In September 2018 The National Lottery Community Fund invited projects that have received funding through its small grants programme to say what they had achieved and how they would like to develop their project or work further. The National Lottery Community Fund, ITV and STV shortlisted five projects in each region to go forward to the public vote and Ramsey Neighbourhood Trust, the LTO for Ramsey Million was one of these.
