Friends of Holcot – This Saturday

This month’s meeting of the Saturday Group is this Saturday 7 March.  The plan is to start tidying the entrance to the village on the Walgrave Road (near to the village entrance signs) – meet at the Green on Poplars Lane/Walgrave Rd at 10am please – bring gloves, loppers, secateurs, spades and the like. And wellies…

Please come along – there is no long term commitment and everyone is welcome.

If you want to know more about the ‘Friends of Holcot” initiative please contact Philip Pomeroy on 781246 or take a look here.

It’s coming…Superfast Broadband

You may have seen BT Openreach working in the area a lot recently – the new Holcot broadband cabinet is expected to be connected shortly.

Walgrave and Hannington are in the process of being connected, and our cabinet follows after.

Further information will be provided once it is available. The March edition of the Superfast Northamptonshire Newsletter is here.

“Help for Holcot” Group beginning to operate

The Group of village people who are offering their services to back-up your usual support routines are ready to begin operating.

The ‘Help for Holcot” group will offer help where it is needed – for example, where the person who usually collects your prescriptions is not available, someone from the Group will help you out. The objective is not to replace any regular arrangements but to be a helping hand when needed.

If such a situation happens to you, ring Lesley on 781246 and the “Help for Holcot” group will do their best to help.
