Back to “New” Normal at The Bottle Top

When Ruddington’s The Bottle Top celebrated its first year of trading on 10th May 2020 it was during unprecedented times – in the middle of a nationwide ‘lockdown’ caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. As an ‘essential’ business, permitted to remain open by the Government, owners Anthony and Alex Preston decided they would do so. Throughout the restrictions they continued to serve residents with essential supplies at a time when our village supermarkets were struggling to keep up with demand. As before, the shop kept Ruddingtonians stocked with products such as plastic-free fresh fruit…

Still Sweet at 18, High Street!

Sweet-toothed Ruddingtonians have recently been dealt two blows on High Street – with the closure of Julia’s Kitchen cake shop at number 14 last November followed by the loss of Sue Kosciekowski’s much loved traditional sweet shop Sweetie Boutique at number 18 earlier this year. Thankfully a brand new business called Sweet Moments has now moved into the latter’s former premises – with the official opening on Saturday July 4th.

The Return of Ruddington’s Navy 3 and Green 10C/10X

When the Government instructed us to ‘Stay at Home’ to ‘Save Lives’ and ‘Protect the NHS’ at the start of the Coronavirus ‘lockdown’ in March, bus operators quickly put their services on a much reduced ‘core’ timetable – with public transport being deemed for ‘essential travel’ only. As movement restrictions are gradually eased, and more people return to work, the vast majority of Nottingham City Transport (NCT) buses are back to their former timetable from Sunday June 28th 2020. For Ruddington, the reinstatement of the Navy 3 service means residents, shoppers and workers can…
