The annual Ride and Stride organised by Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust raised the magnificent sum of £325 this year. A group of us from Hannington and the surrounding parishes visited many of the churches in Northampton on a fascinating walk which we hope to repeat next year on the 8th September. Many thanks are due to those who walked, those who cycled, those who manned the church and most of all those who sponsored.


A regular visitor to Ypres Salient for over thirty years, during the course of attending the ceremonies of remembrance at the Menin Gate Memorial, Ypres this year I was accompanied by my wife Sandra and friend John Pettitt (Moulton) to lay wreaths on behalf of the villages of Holcot and Hannington – which I visit everyday as part of my employment as postman.  A simple, yet important act of remembrance in proud and honoured memory of those villagers who answered their country’s call, marched away to war and made the ultimate sacrifice – it was a privilege and an honour.  Hannington’s Poppy wreath was sponsored by Mr Graham Martin.



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 winner for November is – No.40 C. Halls. Congratulations.



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.




All collections:

Collections over Christmas and New Year will take place on their usual days, including Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, except for Christmas Day.

Black bins will continue to be collected as normal on their fortnightly cycle. Please make sure you recycle as much as possible as side waste and bins with raised lids will not be collected.

Brown bins will be suspended for two weeks from Christmas Eve until Saturday, 6 January inclusive. This will enable crews to focus on collecting extra recycling. Please refer to your collections calendar as to when your brown bin will be collected next.

Recycling boxes and food bins will continue to be collected weekly for all households on their usual collection day.

Large cardboard will be collected for two weeks from Christmas Eve until and Saturday, 6 January inclusive. If you have large cardboard and it won’t fit in your recycling box, please flatten it as much as possible and place next to your boxes on your collection day. Please do not place it inside another cardboard box.

Extra recycling can also be put out for collection over Christmas. If you have more recycling than your boxes can hold, please continue to sort your items and place them into clear or white bags next to your boxes (not black or green sacks).

Don’t forget that you can recycle a range of festive items, including Christmas cards, wrapping paper, sweet tins and drinks bottles.

Real Christmas trees will be collected on your scheduled brown bin collection day when the service resumes (w/c Monday, 15 January 2018 for the majority of homes in Daventry District). Please break it up and put it into your brown bin or place the tree next to your brown bin or recycling boxes. Alternatively take it to your local household waste recycling centre ­– you can find your nearest at
