Roscoes drop out of Red Octopus Offer.

Roscoe Catering agreed to be a flagship site for the golf hub but after the work had been started said that they did not want a website.  We wasted possibly half a day setting up Didsbury as part of the cheshire hub so have left Roscoes as a site that might have been.


This site was originally commissioned by Mary but she has informed me that she can not promote Didsbury Golf Club.

This site is too important for the unification of the Mersey Clubs so it can not go - plus it is so deeply embedded in my infrastructure that it is impossible to track where it lives. 
Sorry if it poses a problem. It has been rebranded Red Octopus Catering.

Welcome to the new Active Website for Didsbury members - provided by Ex Didsbury member Alan Bramwell.

Alan is now unemployed after losing his position and then have a project close down on him at Intelling.

Alan works in the voluntary sector for Manchester City Council.

In 2007 Alan completed his Longhorn Project for Microsoft having been a Beta tester for what became Vista. He was then appointed IT strategist for Young Masters Golf by David Gosling.

In 2015 Alan re-connected with David Gosling - now Bitesize golf to become his Agile Product Owner/Scrum N, Master and Business Analyst. Alan took on BSG Elite as his own business venture an employed Redcamel Systems to program a portal for David to enable his business to go international.

Alan's son Adam died and Alan was not able to monitor the project. A year later David had failed to implement Richard;s  development.

In 2007 Alan employed 5 IT services companies to do work for David - when he was invoiced in July he said that he could not pay as he had lost control of YMG to Chris Smith.

The project is worth a significant amount of money per year in internet subscription fees - David failed to implement GozWord in 2007 which meant that Alan has not had a business model to present to the world.

Alan has decided that the technology that he uses - which is state of the art will benefit the NHS  and he has now joined a Cancer Research group at Wythenshawe Hospital this came following the implementation of Blue Flamingos which is a Community Wellbeing site initiated by the Anglican church in Wythenshawe and is now the InTouch  module to drive Discussion groups at Age UK and Happy Mondays Levenshulme.

The third arrow in Alan's Golden Triangle is Green Onions which is Education - Alan is a qualified teacher and delivers on-line training for community centres and libraries. Again in a voluntary capacity Alan worked of Manchester Adult Education Services and is now looking towards Apple to give him certification for his Agile Express modules.

Alan operates as an illuminati the forth element of his golden pyramid is Diamond (White As Milk) which is his communications strategy for his Foundation Computing Division.

To promote his work Alan utilise YouTube  and has his own TV Channel called FACX-TV.

Facx-TV promotes Manchester Music and Flip Recipe - The Family record label. Alan has family links with the Beatle in the for of Tony Bramwell and has over 101 million YouTube views for Snaresallday.

To celebrate the life of Adam the family has a charity golf day at Hazel Grove which is promoted by Onboard Promotions.  However, the decision has been made to keep the event a close knit family event that raises about £2,000 per year. Next year it is sponsored by Ping and is one to watch out for on this website. See Hazel Grove Golf Club.

Finally - a big thank you to Didsbury Golf Club for making me so welcome as a member and now a volunteer. I will do everything possible to promote junior golf at the club.

For the members I give you - lots of tuition there.

There is more about working with American Golf University on the Green Onions Project - but not now, one thing at a time.

This is an example of Foundation Computing - do not expect the results of this survey to be monitored  -
there is too much going on. 

This is a better option than Mail Chimp. 

You might want to think about a wedding questionnaire.
