RuddFest Returns!

Ruddington’s now famous annual real ale and cider festival is happening again from Thursday to Sunday this week. The four day “RuddFest” offers over 150 beers and ciders, alongside wines, Prosecco and spirits throughout the village PLUS live entertainment, a big variety of food and fun activities for the kids. The idea of regular beer festivals in Ruddington began at The White Horse in 2006 when the then tenants Tony Beecroft and Jez Curtis decided to make good use of their generous beer garden for a few extra barrels of real ale and cider from…

Ruddington Bus Service Changes

Nottingham City Transport is reminding passengers there’ll be changes to some of its services from this weekend. However, in terms of our Ruddington buses, only the Green 10 will see slight adjustments to its timetable. Due to increased traffic on the route, from Tuesday 29th May there’s a revised weekday peak schedule being introduced “to improve reliability”. If you usually catch the Green 10/10C/10X between Rushcliffe Business Park and the City, or vice versa, on Mondays to Fridays between 6.00am and 8.00am it’d be wise to check for new departure and arrival times before…

Asher Lane Housing Approved!

Ruddington has LOST its long running battle with housing developers who’ve applied to build a major new housing estate on Green Belt land off Asher Lane. Following an appeal hearing last month granted to Space Foods Limited by The Planning Inspectorate, Rushcliffe Borough Council‘s decision to refuse them outline permission for the site has been overturned. This means around 175 new homes can now be built on this land – bordered by Asher Lane, Musters Road, Western Fields and the footpath alongside the Great Central Railway line (see top photo). Hundreds…

Criminals Target Apotheka

Police are investigating after a new restaurant & café-bar in Ruddington, which only began trading in March, was raided by thieves over the weekend. “Apotheka”, at 6 Wilford Road, was broken into early on Sunday morning, with a quantity of cash and drinks stolen. The venue is now run by Jack Robson – who originally worked for McArtney’s Catering before buying out the company in 2015 and then acquiring the former “Bar Six” business from John Noble and Lucy Would in November last year. Jack says the criminals struck at about a quarter past…

Parkyns Street Houses Approved

A row of new homes WILL be built at the heart of Ruddington’s conservation area after planning consent was granted by Rushcliffe Borough Council. The application was submitted in January by architect Harry Sculthorp on behalf of Steve Tate-Bone to demolish the former Alfred Cooke Machinists‘ building on Parkyns Street and erect terraced housing in its place. It stated: “Besides the importance of providing additional homes, we feel passionately that the aesthetic value of the street and surrounding area will be greatly enhanced by the proposed development. The design approach taken…
