From Northamptonshire Highways…
John Henry Group, on behalf of Gigaclear, have requested a number of closures to allow for the installation of a new telecommunications network.
The project in the area will commence on the 7th January 2019 and is expected to be completed by the 3rd April 2019. As you will appreciate there has already been some works taking place using traffic signals within the area and the closures will commence when signed on site giving a minimum of 10 working days’ notice.
With Rectory Lane, Holcot residents will have access although they will need to wait to be escorted through the works.

Our VASID (Vehicle-Activated Speed Indicator Device) was installed on Sywell Road this week. It will help us raise awareness of vehicle speeds through the 30mph part of the Parish.
The VASID will provide data about vehicle speeds which we can use with the authorities. It has various modes which displays vehicle speeds, symbols, and text. It will also will operate in “stealth” mode (where there is no display, but it is still recording information) – this is it’s current setting. We also have warning panels that fix to the bottom of the VASID to help get the speed awareness messages across.
The 10th Banter & Batter Quiz held at the village hall on Saturday 13 October raised £337 for Holcot Village Hall Association.
