Crow Lane Project

The Crow Lane Project was set up in January 2003 by members of the Ramsbottom Heritage Society to research the history of the houses and other buildings and people of Crow Lane, Ramsbottom, Lancashire, England.

Millennium

The Ramsbottom Millennium Festival held in June 2000 was promoted by the Heritage Society and was a great success with many events organised over the week

Mrs. Dorothy Moss, the Chairman of the Ramsbottom Heritage Society has the following resume of the week's events

"The great Ramsbottom Millennium festival of 17th to 24th June 2000 has come and gone, leaving many happy memories of a truly wonderful week, when townspeople and visitors were welcomed to the event, which took twelve months of planning and organising, culminating in a highly enjoyable week of fun and interest, aimed to please all ages and interests.

Sincere thanks are due to members and friends for their considerable help to the project and also to local companies and traders for their assistance. It has been most gratifying to find that the society's work is well recognised and supported by such a spectrum of local business, organisations, churches and schools.

We feel that the profile of the town and the society has been raised ( we welcome new members, contact Brian on 01706 828705). The friendship and kindness shown to us during the long planning period has been overwhelming and was much welcomed by co-ordinator Linda de Ruijter. No prize is too high for all her hard work and dedication.

A  valued grant from 'Millennium Festival Awards for all' gave us the financial base for the project and extra funding from the Ramsbottom Area Board enabled us to take plans a stage further. Subsequent enthusiasm from all concerned has helped to turn the dream into a reality.

Young people from schools, dance and drama groups took part in an open air concert hosted by BBC TV North West News presenter Martin Henfield, who rode into town in the silver Morris seen in his recent 'Out and About' leisure series on BBC 2. He was a great hit on the day and added lustre to the day, which included a cherished vehicle show and was attended by the deputy major of Bury, a Town Crier, Tottington Town Band played in the Memorial Gardens and special events were put on at the Station by the East Lancs Railway. The town was en-fete with bunting, and a flower display in market Place, plus one of the local churches held a Flower Festival"
