Around 50 villagers and other guests gathered to hear the results of the 2015 Northamptonshire Best Village Competition, which were announced at the Presentation Evening Ceremony held on Tuesday 14th July at the Hunsbury Hill Centre. This Competition celebrates community spirit and the quality of life in the County’s villages.
The village of Weedon Bec was the overall winner of the competition gaining the prestigious title of the 2015 Northamptonshire Best Village. The village of Syresham was the runner up.
David Laing, H.M. Lord-Lieutenant of Northamptonshire and President of Northamptonshire ACRE presented delegates from the winning villages with cups and certificates. Full details of all the winners in their categories can be viewed here.
Our Big Lottery funded Rural Wellbeing Service has kicked off with visits to a number of villages in East Northants from our big information bus. We have been providing information, support and advice to residents in Collyweston, Easton on the Hill, Warmington, Nassington and Oundle and from September we will also be visiting Earls Barton.
If you see the bus around your area, why not call in and speak to the fieldworker, Linda and find out how we can help you.
Many thanks to everyone who has kindly donated spades, hoes, rakes and even mowers to the Community Payback scheme. The group are extremely grateful as these tools enable them to continue with their excellent work of ground maintenance in communities. If you would like to know more about the Community Payback scheme or would like to nominate a project in your area, please click on the Community Payback logo to go to the Northants Probation Trust website for more information.
