We have seen a great start to the year, bringing new entrepreneurial blood into the town centre, and I am really looking forward to seeing how the new owners transform their premises and develop what I am sure will be fantastic new businesses.

"These two completions are just the start of the story for Ramsbottom in 2018. We already have another two deals agreed and nearing completion that will further transform the landscape in the town.

"I can't say too much at this stage but one of these, in particular, will be of great interest to many families in and around the town. This looks set to be a very good year for Ramsbottom so watch this space!"
