The Annual Harvest Festival service will be held on Sunday 16 September at 10am in Hannington Church, all very welcome to join us.  We appeal to villagers for donations of food, clothing etc which will be sent to the Hope Centre in Northampton, following the service of thanksgiving, to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves.  Vegetables, food in cans/jars/and any other items, will be most welcome and we would ask that anything you can donate, is left in the Church by mid-day on Saturday 15 September, which will allow us time to put on display, for the Harvest Festival service.  Many thanks.



A date for your diary.   By popular demand, a Quiz Night has been arranged in Hannington Village Hall, for the evening of Friday 19 October starting at 7.30pm (in aid of Church funds).

Now that the schools have returned after the summer break, to enable the school children to walk safely to and from the bus stop, 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 to walk safely on the footpaths rather than in the road.  Many thanks for your assistance in this matter.



You will no doubt be aware of the revised Stagecoach No 10 services which were effective from the 30 of April 2018 and the effects to our residents on the curtailment of the ‘Off Peak’ time tables.

MP Philip Hollobone has responded to Mawsley residents and expressed his concerns but has pointed out that due to the financial restraints with NCC, that any shortfall and subsidy would need to come from elsewhere and that this might be something that Parish Council’s might wish to explore under our precepting powers.

Mawsley have entered into discussion with Stagecoach on the potential to provide a collective financial subsidy from all the villages affected by the service reductions to the off peak schedules.

Stagecoach provided a cost estimate to restore a two hourly service linking Kettering-Mawsley and the other villages affected with Moulton and Northampton, during the off peak at a revenue guarantee price of £296 per day i.e. Stagecoach Midlands would invoice Mawsley Village and the other villages served for the difference between £296 and the amount of revenue actually taken on these journeys each day.

This estimate and Revenue Guarantee would be based on a six day service Monday to Saturday based on the annual 304 operational days which excludes Sundays and statutory holidays and would equate to £89,984 shared between all eight villages. Hannington Parish Council have discussed this proposal and feel this is something which we cannot afford as a village. We are nevertheless remaining in contact with everyone open to considering any further proposals.
