Hannington Village Hall Tote Winner for October 2018 is No. 20 belonging to P Wigley. Congratulations!

A huge thank you to all our tote members for your support, new members and longstanding. For further information regarding the Hannington Village Hall Tote please contact Vanessa on 01604 781015, or call at 2 Red House Lane, Hannington.


Yet again we had a successful day on the 8th September. Volunteers manned the church throughout the day and four teams went cycling or walking around the county. In all £280 was raised of which £140 will come back to our church and the other half will be used by Northamptonshire Historic Churches to renovated churches around the county. A big thankyou is due to all those who sat in the church, rode and strode. And an even bigger thanks to those who sponsored them so generously.

The event will be held again on the 14th September next year. If you are interested in participating, please contact Tim Kidger on 01604 781361.


If you would like your copy of Hannington Life delivered direct to your e-mail on the Friday following the PC meeting then please email the Clerk at



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).



People in Daventry District are being encouraged to suggest possible names for a proposed new unitary council covering West Northamptonshire. The Government is currently considering plans to replace the county council and seven current districts and boroughs with two new unitary authorities in Northamptonshire – one in the west and another in the north. The proposed new unitary authority in the west would cover the current areas of Daventry District, Northampton Borough and South Northamptonshire. The Government has not yet decided on whether to proceed with the unitary proposal and is expected to launch its own consultation shortly before making a decision. However due to the tight timescale for creating the new councils by May 2020 if the proposal is approved, Daventry District Council and its partner councils in the west are continuing with preparations to help inform and shape any future legislation. This work includes proposing a name to the Government for Parliament to decide upon. Residents and businesses in Daventry District are urged to give their views on what they think a new west unitary council should be called during an informal consultation running until Monday, 3 December. You are being asked to respond to the following question: What do you think a new Council covering West Northamptonshire should be called?

You can submit your suggestions online at

Alternatively, you can submit their suggestions by post to:

LGR Naming Proposal, Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry NN11 4FP

There is no official shortlist, but various names have been suggested since discussions started about a proposed new unitary authority for West Northamptonshire. We have listed some of these below and we would be keen to find out your preference or suggest to us an alternative name:

·         West Northamptonshire Council

·         Northamptonshire West Council

·         Northampton and West Northamptonshire Council

·         Greater Borough of Northampton Council

·         Borough and District of Northampton Council

·         Grand Union Council

We are sad to advise that Mr John Mains passed away on Wednesday 31st October. A member of this village for many years. Our condolences to his family and friends.



The Parish Council currently has two vacancies that can be filled by co-option.   To qualify, a person must be a Commonwealth citizen or EU national, over 18 years of age and an elector, must reside within the parish of Hannington, or within 3 miles of it, or occupy as owner or tenant any land or premises therein, or have their principal or only place of work there, and must not be disqualified from holding office as a Councillor.  Please contact the Clerk if you are interested in filling these positions.


The next Parish Council meeting will be held on MONDAY 3rd DECEMBER at 7.15pm in the Village Hall.  All villagers are welcome to attend.


All villagers are reminded that any problems with pot holes, overgrown verges, empty salt bin etc can be reported directly to the Street Doctor – NCC would prefer contact to be made online and have advised that “If the problem is categorised as an emergency then the phone number will appear for people to ring instead.”

 Problems with the street lights however must be reported to the Clerk as these need to be directed to E.on.



There is currently an allotment space available for anyone interested. There will also be another with effect from January. Price is £16 per year for Hannington village residents or £21 for those outside of the village, subject to a refundable £50 deposit. If you are interested, please contact Caroline Tel: 01604 781631
