I NOTICED signs up for yet another tearoom in Ramsbottom.

Not wishing to stifle business, but the ratio of shops to coffee shops is decreasing rapidly.

Tourists have complained that Haworth has become nothing but wall-to-wall coffee shops. Do we want the same in Rammy?

Independent shopkeepers should be encouraged to complement what we already have in the area.

If anything, the parking issue should be looked at to encourage longer visits to the town.

Wardens pouncing and ticketing for the sake of a couple of minutes do no one any favours.
