As many within the village will already know, Rev’d Canon Karen Jongman, will leaving us shortly, to take on responsibility for another Benefice at Pattishall (near Towcester). I’m sure you will join us in wishing her well, in her now post, and to thank her for all the work she has undertaken during her time at Hannington. In the meantime, until a replacement is appointed we will endeavour to continue to hold as many services at Hannington as possible. We have a team of experienced Lay-Readers within the Walgrave Benefice who have offered their support during the vacancy period. Hopefully, we will be a position to appoint someone new within the coming months; we will of course keep you posted.

Northamptonshire Highways are requiring to carry out carriageway repairs, gully emptying, lining and associated highways works on a section of the above road between the A14 and the Round Spinney roundabout.  To undertake this work safely will require that the road is closed for up to three nights between 20.00 and 06.00 to through traffic.  Currently the section between the A14 and Red House Road is due to be closed on the 26th and 27th February and the section between Red House Road and Round Spinney on the 28th February 2018.

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.
