New Local Government Reorganisation Web Sites Launched

Two new web sites, one for West Northamptonshire and one for North Northamptonshire, have been launched to carry news about the Local Government Reorganisation (LGR) programme.  The web sites are at and  The sites describe the process so far, who is involved, progress from public meetings, and news including details of the upcoming shadow authority elections.  There is understandably a great deal of speculation about the move toward unitary governance and these two sites offer the most reliable means of keeping up to date and ensuring you are aware of the facts.

Some more organisations you can turn to for help:

During these times of many people having to self isolate, we’re very fortunate to have a group of volunteers willing to help with what ever they can, be it getting shopping, picking up a take-away or maybe just someone to talk to. You should have received information of how you can access this help posted through your letter boxes but if not, it’s all being coordinated by Amanda Miller and she can be reached, preferably by text message, on 07508 058 998.

It may be though that you need a bit more than this. Maybe you’re starting to struggle emotionally or financially and you’d rather talk to someone outside of the village. Someone you don’t have personal contact with. There’s help out there, you just need to reach out for it.

The local NCC support line is 0300 126 1000 (option 5).

There’s also help to be found through the Red Cross.

If you have money worries you can call 0808 802 2000.

If you need support at home, maybe you can’t get out to buy food even if you could afford to, then call 0345 0547 171 followed by option 0 to talk to someone.

HGV Traffic

Instances of vehicles clearly exceeding 7.5 tons using our village as a short cut are on the increase, with two names cropping up very frequently. Palletways and PC Howard have both been contacted with information also being passed on to the Police and the Traffic Commissioners. Obviously, some of these lorries are legally travelling into the village to drop off and pick up goods. There’s frequent deliveries to the shop and grain lorries will soon be collecting from farms amongst others.

If you see what is obviously an HGV over 7.5tons and they appear to be using our village as a short cut please do report it to us by emailing including time and date and preferably  photos showing the vehicle and registration plate.

Do you worry about what your children are being exposed to online?

There’s a lot of very useful guides and information available from the Safety Detectives website. Click the image for details.
