Ramsey is a rural market town situated on the edge of the fens. Approximately 9,000 people live in the town and surrounding villages. The opportunities in this location are staggering; the area has a wealth of heritage, culture and wildlife. Added to this the community spirit among some local people and you have the ingredients for a thriving future, if it is harnessed.
People in the town are now starting to believe that their views and ideas for the future are being listened to and that Big Local, known locally as Ramsey Million is the start of exciting times ahead.
The Ramsey Million partnership has been officially endorsed by Local Trust. The group made up of 16 people locally and 5 advisers has worked really hard developing their policies and procedures – one of the important steps to enable the million to be released.
The partnership is also delighted that our Big Local plan has also been approved. The Big Local process and the opportunities it creates continue to excite people and it really is injecting positivity into the community. There’s still a lot of hard work ahead to achieve the long term vision but we’re getting there gradually, step by step along the pathway!
