Holcot had it’s own History Society until 2016. Are you interested in restarting it? If you are, let Lisa know (email@example.com).
The Society has an archive in the Church Room and some funds. If the Society does not restart, the Parish Council will recommend that the Archives are transferred to the Northamptonshire Archives and the remaining funds applied to a Parish project.
Each year parishioners organise a day out in London. Here is the information from Phil and Heather for the 2020 trip.

At their meeting on Monday the Parish Council confirmed that the precept is again unchanged at £17,500.
In agreeing the precept the Parish Council undertook their final reforecast for this financial year, and created a budget for 2020/21. These have been added to the Parish Council page in the normal way.
A major planning application has been received. In summary;
Outline application for an urban extension consisting of circa 1600 dwellings; a new section of A43 dual carriageway road; up to 5.95ha of commercial land, including: a local centre (Use Classes A1/A3/A5/D1), assisted living/residential care home (Class C2), conversion of former agricultural buildings to a community hub (Classes D1/A3) and employment (Classes B1/B2/B8); a new 2-form entry primary school; public open space, including allotments and children’s play space; structural landscape planting; and associated infrastructure including drainage features and access (the roundabout, employment site and construction accesses into the site off the A43 being unreserved).
