Free Mature Drivers Roadshow – 7th May 2024 – Rushden

An opportunity for drivers aged 60+ to get free help and guidance supported by the police and Northamptonshire Safer Roads Alliance.


Are you a mature driver (aged 60+)?  Live in Northamptonshire?  Rely on being able to drive? 

This FREE roadshow is for you! Driving is an important part of our everyday life and we (Northamptonshire Safer Roads Alliance (NSRA)) are keen to help to keep mature drivers driving safer for longer. 

Our driving ability to drive changes over time for different reasons, especially as we get older. It’s important that we recognise whether and how our driving is changing so we can stay safe and protect both ourselves and those around us. 

This Mature Drivers Roadshow is aimed at drivers 60+, and will cover all different aspects of driving. There will be a short talk and then plenty of time to meet informally with our many stand holders.

Free advice will be available on car adaptions, eyesight, how your prescription medications may affect you, and much more. There will be FREE hints and tips drives available to book, delivered Northampton Advanced Motorists. Our aim is to keep mature drivers driving safer, for longer.

The event is being held at The Goods Shed, 227 John Clark Way, Rushden NN10 0AW  (what3words.com/minority.mows.interrupt) with two sessions, 9.30am and 1.00pm.

Annual Parish Meeting – Tuesday 30 April

Holcot from the west

This year’s Parish Meeting (APM) will be held on 30 April at 7pm in the Village Hall.

The APM is a statutory meeting of the parish, called annually by the Chair of the Parish Council. It is not a Parish Council meeting, but does have an agenda and minutes.

At the APM the Chair of the Parish Council provides a report, other information is shared, and guests are invited to attend and speak. This year we have confirmed attendees from WNC, the Police, and Highways. One of the key features is that the format allows parishioners to discuss the issues of the day and ask questions of speakers.

The statutory notice of the meeting will follow in mid-April, but please save the date!
