JULY 2019

WHALEBONE "TOTALLY PLUCKED"

A date for your diary.....On Saturday 26 October at 7 30pm Steve and Char; the guitarists from Whalebone, will be playing at the village Hall. It promises to be a brilliant evening of guitar music. They will play a blend of folk and rock, both original and familiar, performed and narrated by two amazing musicians. Tickets will be £10 each and will be available from Chris in September on 781850

 

ATTENTION ALL RUNNERS/JOGGERS

We are seeking interest from those wanting to take part in a social run once or twice a week, days and times to be fixed.  If that could be you, please pitch up with running shoes outside the Village Hall on Monday 15 July at 6.30 pm

Any queries, contact Rosann Wood 781449 or Chris Hilts 781850.

 

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE HISTORIC CHURCHES TRUST

RIDE & STRIDE 2019 - Call for Volunteers

The annual Ride and Stride will be held on 14th September this year. This event raises money to help preserve Northamptonshire’s 350 beautiful churches. You can help by walking or cycling from church to church, manning a church or by sponsoring someone to Ride, Stride or Man. The money raised in Hannington will be divided equally between the NHCT and St Peter & St Paul in our village.

Sponsorship forms and a list of open churches and chapels are available from Tim Kidger (01604 781361 or oldshrinker@yahoo.com).

 

DOG FOULING

Regrettably, it has been brought to the Parish Council’s attention, yet again, that some irresponsible dog owner is not cleaning up the mess left by their pet.  In particular, on the main footpath through the village, around the area of Main Street/Red House Lane and down Orchard Close. There is no excuse for this behaviour so PLEASE, PLEASE clean up after your pet as we are sure you would not appreciate this left outside your own doorstep.  Many thanks for your assistance in this matter.

ALLOTMENT VACANCIES

There are currently three allotment spaces available for anyone interested. Price is £18 per year for Hannington village residents or £23 for those outside of the village, subject to a refundable £50 deposit. If you are interested, please contact Caroline Tel: 01604 781631

 

A GENTLE REMINDER TO ALL VILLAGERS, WHO’S PROPERTIES ARE ADJACENT TO THE PAVEMENT/ROADS

The Parish Council would like to take this opportunity to ask all villagers who have boundaries adjacent to, in particular Main Street and Walgrave Road that all overhanging vegetation is cut back.  This will enable pedestrians, and in particular the school children going to the bus stop, to walk safely on the footpaths rather than in the road.  Many thanks for your assistance in this matter.

 

MALLARDS WOOD

During the June Parish Council meeting a village resident enquired regarding access to Mallards Wood. This was placed on the agenda and discussed during this month’s meeting. It was decided at the current time to leave the gate in situ locked, to discourage fly tippers. To insert a kissing or hand gate to the site would cost £1500, something that the Parish Council does not have capacity for in its budget. If any of the villagers would be interested in donating the funds to purchase and fit such a gate, please get in touch with the Clerk.

. HANNINGTON VILLAGE HALL

The Village Hall is available to hire. .The charge is £6.50 per hour (subject to a minimum charge of £13.50).  For further details and bookings please contact Maureen Souter (781486).

THE TOTE

The Tote winner for May was No. 108 belonging to A. Bateman and the June winner was No. 8 belonging to J. Basford. Congratulations to both!
