Over the Christmas period, a cocker spaniel type dog, was caught worrying sheep and alpacas near Hannington House. The owner was walking the bridleway near the Deer Park and the dog had got through into the paddock. Please note this is a serious offence and could result in your dog not coming home. Please be a responsible dog owner and keep your pet under control. Thank you.

We are extremely saddened to learn that Mrs Iris Shardlow and Mrs Maria Spencer, both residents of our village, have passed away. Our sincere condolences to all their family and friends.



The winning numbers for the December Tote are No. 123 A. Twigg and No. 5 A. Shardlow. Congratulations to both.



All villagers are reminded that any problems with pot holes, overgrown verges, empty salt bin etc can be reported directly to Fix My Street – 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.



People are being urged to sign-up for the Big Switch to help ensure they are on the best deal for their gas and electricity this winter, Around 90% of residents who signed up to the last scheme in the autumn were offered better energy deal, providing the opportunity to make savings of about £240 per year on average. The winter auction process has now launched and Daventry District residents are urged to sign-up before registration closes on 10 February.

Everyone who signs-up before the deadline will be entered into a national collective, with energy companies then invited to bid for their custom in an auction. Because the auction is an opportunity for energy companies to secure thousands of customers in one go, the deals they offer in a bid to win that auction are often better than those advertised to the general public. The sign-up process is quick and easy, with just an annual bill or indication of annual energy usage required.


Following the end of the registration period, everyone who signed up will be sent an offer indicating any savings they could make. There is no obligation to accept that offer and no fees or charges involved, whether people decide to switch or not. People who switched providers through last winter’s auction are particularly encouraged to register again, as their fixed-term contract will be coming to an end and this is an opportunity to secure another good deal through the scheme. Big Switch Daventry District is a joint effort between Daventry District Council (DDC) and its switching partner iChoosr. People are urged to sign up by visiting or phoning 01327 871100.





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).
