Sunday 3rd September – Marking the centenary of Merchant Navy Day

The Parish Council has arranged a commemoration of the centenary of Merchant Navy Day. This is to remember all the lives lost at sea by the Merchant Navy during the wars, and the debt of gratitude we all owe to those who served in the Forces
On Sunday 3rd September at 11.00 a.m. the Merchant Navy Flag will be raised above the church and our M.P. Chris Heaton Harris will say a few words. Everyone is invited to assemble just inside the churchyard for 11.00.
After a few photographs, we will then adjourn to the village hall where tea and coffee will be available and into the normal Sunday bar.

Rural Business Grants

The following has been circulated by Daventry District Council:

From: The LEADER Team Sent: 07 August 2017 Subject: We’re gearing up for a summer of support for rural businesses – Can you help?


LEADER is gearing up for a summer of support for rural businesses
We have a lot to share, not least the great news that projects in North & West Northamptonshire are now able to receive grants from £5,000 up to £180,000 – and we’re hoping this will also be the case in both the Chilterns and Clay Vales soon. This means we can now support a wider range of projects than ever before.
We have some great examples of LEADER-funded projects that exemplify this diversity and are great stories that you can share with your networks. There’s a woodland management scheme, a new tea room at Hartwell Nurseries, a cattery built on an eco farm, and support for a farmer who was given the confidence to diversify. Please promote these examples far and wide to give rural busin ess owners some inspiration for their own potential LEADER-funded projects.
Finally, we’d like you to welcome some new members of the team. Ian Barrow has recently joined us as Project Officer for the Chilterns. Ian has lived in the Chilterns and worked across all three LEADER areas for many years and among his skillset is an extensive experience of the arboricultural and woodland management industries. Katy Brown joins as Project Administrator. Katy has gained a wide knowledge of issues affecting countryside management after 13 years spent working at a National Trust estate.
Please follow the links above and below to find more information, and do spread the word to your networks so we can support more rural businesses with their dream projects.
If you’d like to get in touch to discuss anything, we’re always happy to speak to you.
Many Thanks,
