Parish Council update

17137883910 90b8435a37 o

You may have seen from the minutes of April’s Parish Council meeting that Roger Gunnett has decided to retire as Chair of the Council at May’s Annual Meeting. He will remain as a Councillor.

I am sure that everyone will join me in thanking him for his commitment and continuing fantastic work for our village.

Neighbourhood Watch : Yellow Pages delivery due

The Northampton Yellow Pages directory is due to start being delivered  from 25 April over 2-3 weeks. The delivery company DEYA have asked that we make villagers aware of the delivery, and the action they take to avoid it being apparent where properties are unoccupied.

On behalf of Yell, the publisher of Yellow Pages directories, we take a very responsible approach to delivering the directories and make every effort to ensure there is as minimum inconvenience to householders as possible.

Our delivery agents undergo thorough training before delivery commences and we closely monitor householders’ satisfaction with each delivery. Ideally, the directories are put through the letterbox or handed over to each householder, but when that is not possible we aim to leave it in a dry, secure place out of sight from passers by or with a neighbour, and with a card through the door saying where or with whom it has been left. Alternatively, a card may be left with a number to call to arrange re-delivery.
