Welcome to the Ramsden Village website

There's a lot going on in Ramsden and, whether you live here or whether you're just visiting, you should find something helpful and/or interesting on this site.

The menu buttons above take you to the main components of the site. The image buttons take you to what's new in each area, and you can use the Search facility if you are looking for something particular.

The links below will also take you around the website.

The Village Noticeboard has a similar function to the old postcard in the Post Office window.

The Event Calendar keeps you up to date with what's going on in the village and round about. There are links to cinemas and theatres and to many of the events listed too.

If you are Visiting Ramsden you can check where we are with Satnav details, when the trains and buses run, and whether they are on time; find out where to stay, eat and drink, and sightsee or get some exercise.

The Parish Council supports village and villagers alike in our relationships with each other, the broader community and its offices. The Council has also amassed a wealth of Useful Information.

Village Activities include the theatre, coffee mornings and private functions at the Memorial Hall, the resources at the Playing Fields, Annual Events such as the Fete and Christmas Market and the 200 Club.

The Memorial Hall is available for hire to all. The Parker Room within the Hall complex offers additional contemporary small business support.

Tennis is for all ages, in all weathers and all seasons.

The Ramsden Grower is a "where, when and how" for horticulturalists, whether they are interested in fruit, flower or veg, allotment, greenhouse or tub.

The Ramsden Kitchen helps make the most of local resources.

The Country Notebook reflects the natural world around us and its changing with the passage of the seasons.
