Last week we visited a small exhibition in the old Ramsey Courthouse in the square beside the war memorial. The boards arranged around the old courtroom displayed old sepia photographs and newspaper cuttings depicting the town's retail and business heritage. Many of the businesses are, of course, now long gone but some still remain and the old buildings are still recognisable.
The exhibition was in support of the British Legion and Remembrance Day so we dropped our donation into the collection bucket where we noticed that we could also leave our name and telephone number to be entered into a draw. The prize was a large framed collage of old photos of the town centre.
Yesterday evening I had a phone call from a very charming gentleman who told me that I had won the prize draw. I was very pleased as I have never previously been very lucky with draws or raffles.
I am going to collect my prize from the Courthouse building on Saturday morning.
It will look very well on the wall in the hallway of our new home.
