There is an appeal for Land To The West Of Mercedes Avenue, Brixworth (Brixworth/Scaldwell Parish), Northamptonshire (see planning applications page for summary).
The process with this is a bit different…a session will be held by the Planning Inspectorate on 27 July via a Microsoft Teams call/telephone. Additional (ie; new) comments have to be provided before 29 June (three copies, on paper).
The Parish Council will consider at their June meeting whether they need to make additional representations. If anyone else would like to contribute comments please send to email@example.com before the meeting.
If you would like to make your own comments direct, please contact the clerk for full instructions before 20 June.
On behalf of Tony’s family we would like to thank everyone who paid their respects to Tony, it meant such a lot to us.
Also Dad would have been touched by the fly past of the Spitfire and Hurricane that flew overhead as his coffin was coming out the hearse ?. Along with the tractor with the sprayer attachment, very agricultural. And very fitting.
The new Parish Council met for the first time last week. A short general update…
David Walker was elected Chair, and Kathryn Bourner Vice-Chair.
We co-opted Trudi Townsend of Main Street which now gives us a full council. We have allocated sectors to Councillors as shown in the table below. The objective is that these Councillors are your first port of call in respect of anything that you would like to discuss with the Council. Alternatively, talk to any Councillor or contact Ruby (our Clerk). This information is also shown on the Parish Council page.
Main Street, Farm Close, Walgarth Court
Back Lane, Brittens View
Moulton Road, Tithe Close
Sywell Rd, Ivy Farm, Sunny Bank
All properties outside village confines
Rectory Lane, Beelhook, Walgrave Rd
Brixworth Road, Glebe Close
Poplars Lane, Winsland Court
We also allocated responsibilities to individual Councillors as shown on the Parish Council page. A notable change for Parishioners is that Caroline Ferguson is now Editor for the website – the email address remains firstname.lastname@example.org of course. David Walker will deputise if necessary.
According to the Government’s roadmap, tennis will be able to resume on outdoor courts with effect from Monday, 29th March.
For those of you new to the Parish, we have a beautiful tennis court situated at the Cricket Ground off the Moulton Road. The membership is open to all Holcot residents, the annual family fee is £15 (plus a refundable deposit of £10 for the court key).
Members will be issued with a court key, a gate code and given instructions on how to book online.
A message from Fatma at Public Health Northamptonshire.
My name is Fatma and I work as part of Public Health Northamptonshire for the Supporting Independence Programme. Now, more than ever, services across the community are working together to support those most affected by COVID. Our aim is to support and enable people to maintain their independence and resilience for as long as possible. We are keen to work in partnership with local parishes to promote our service to the wider community, in order to support vulnerable adults to improve and maintain their independence and wellbeing.
Our service can be tailored to support anybody in the county, over the age of 18, who may be struggling with one or several areas of their life, leading to mild frailty or reduced independence. We are currently operating as a telephone service, offering 12 weeks of person-centred support with a trained Wellbeing Advisor. Advisors have a wealth of knowledge and contacts for community services, charities and organisations across the county, working in partnership to achieve a positive outcome for customers. Referrals are dependent on successful completion of the eligibility criteria, which are just a few quick questions included within the referral form. Our administrator will then contact the customer within 2 working days to arrange an initial appointment with an allocated advisor. Examples of areas we support with include:
· Social isolation
· Mental and emotional health
· Physical health and mobility

With hundreds of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, contact details for all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.
John said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Northamptonshire (part of the Walking in England suite of websites (www.walkinginengland.co.uk) – one for each county in England) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.
With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.
So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!
