Skip Etiquette

We have seen a few new skips crop up around the village over the last few weeks so thought it was a timely opportunity to share some links to articles about skip etiquette.

The following links cover a whole range of points to be considered; what size to hire, where to place your skip, and how to protect your skip from fly tippers. Hope you find the articles useful. Please note this is not an ad and we recommend you use a provider you have fully researched.

If you do have items you are happy to go to a good home and not in the skip- leave them by the skip with a sign! You may be amazed how quickly things disappear!

Help offered : Supporting Independence

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

·         Falls

·         Lifestyle

·         Medication

·         Mental and emotional health

·         Physical health and mobility
