Photographic Year 2015 – register your interest now


The Parish Council would like to make 2015 a year that we take a photographic record of Holcot, its people, events and landscapes. This is an opportunity for villagers to enjoy taking photos and establishing a story of Holcot in a single year.

The Parish Council will plan the proposed approach to this initiative over the next couple of months, but are asking for you to register your interest in participating now - this might be in taking shots, editing, collating and coordinating roles.

Please email David Walker – holcotdw{at} – to register your interest or ‘leave a reply’ below (if appropriate, noting any specific roles that you might like to take). Ideas that you have as to how we might undertake a Photographic Year would also be gratefully received!

Neighbourhood Watch update – online safety

The Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commission is currently running  a consultation aimed at children and young people across the county, which will help shape a new strategy to tackle online crime. They are asking adults and children to complete a survey before 24 October to help the Police and Crime Commission understand the perceived risks and behaviours of young people and their parents so that a programme of education and prevention and can be implemented.

Road Safety update

A new page has been created for road safety and traffic management matters. At the moment the page is focussed on Back Lane, and describes the next step of the Back Lane safety improvements. In future it will be updated with information around the traffic and safety issues associated with the major housing development initiatives planned for the area.
