Men Wanted!



Northampton Male Voice Choir (NMVC) is challenging the men of Northamptonshire to join them and the wonderful soprano Emily Haig in a concert on 14 April 2018 to raise money for PROSTATE CANCER UK.

We’re holding two open evenings at the Northampton SaintsRugby Ground, Franklins Gardens on 1 and 8 February. You’ll be invited to learn to sing two songs over an 8-week period with training by our charismatic Musical Director, Stephen Bell. At the end of the 8 weeks you’ll be ready to perform the songs at our concert in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

So, if you think you might be interested, why not come along to one of our open evenings and enjoy a free beer while you find out more about this fantastic opportunity and meet the NMVC team (why not bring a friend). To secure your place at the open evening of your choice just get in touch with our Chairman, John Waller on 07989 387752 or

Vacancy for Parish Councillor

Would you like to join the Parish Council?

The role of the Parish Council is to represent residents of the village in matters such as planning and development.

It plays its part in supporting community activities and facilities such as the playing field, pocket park and community centre. Consultations such as those involving road and housing developments will also come to the Parish Council. The Council has limited funds, but can also support community activities.

The role of the Parish Councillor is a practical one, and involves activities such as monitoring footpaths, trees, playground safety, as much as sitting in meetings.

Prioritisation Framework consultation and engagement

Prioritisation Framework consultation and engagement
Northamptonshire County Council is putting a process in place to help make the tough decisions it has to make about what to prioritise – that is, how we share out resources to achieve the best outcomes for our residents and customers. To do this we need to be clearer what we, our residents and partners think is important to bear in mind when deciding between competing priorities. We need your help to clarify our values and principles and use these to develop the framework we will use for prioritising. You can help us in two ways – by completing a survey and/or attending a workshop
1.       You can find our survey on the County Council website -
2.       You can come to one of 4 workshops that we will be holding around the county, so we can hear from you in person and discuss our principles and values together. Details are available on the Consultation Register - and  will be in libraries.
The workshop details are also outlined below. They are open to anyone who wants to attend, without the need to RSVP or let us know in advance.
·         13th March, 10 am to 12 noon, Council Chamber, Bowling Green Road, Kettering, Northants, NN15 7QX
·         13th March, 6.30 to 8.30 pm, Weston Favell Academy, Booth Lane South, Weston Favell, Northampton NN3 3EZ
·         14th March, 6.30 to 8.30 pm, KINGSTHORPE COLLEGE, Boughton Green Rd, Northampton NN2 7HR
·         16th March, 1.30 to 3.30 pm, Pemberton Centre, H.E. Bates Way, Rushden NN10 9YP
·         20th March, 12.30 to 2.30 pm, South Northants Volunteer Bureau, Whittons Lane, Volunteer Centre , Towcester, Northamptonshire, NN12 6YZ
We welcome your contributions and will take all the information we get from this consultation process to develop our own, unique statement of principles and values to feed into the prioritisation framework.”

Notice - Butchers Arms Pub


Following the move by the parish council to protect the status of the pub building by placing it as an asset of community value, a group of villagers got together to see if we might be able to purchase the pub and start a new business, providing a venue worthy of the village and its surrounding area.

We are pleased to say that the efforts of the group resulted in our competitive bid being awarded and we are in the process of purchasing the pub.

In order to do this we have formed a new company, ‘the greens norton pub company ltd’ once we take ownership we intend to undertake a major investment and refurbishment of the butchers arms creating a great venue for us all.

We also intend to issue a share offer giving people the opportunity to invest.

We hope to be able to re-open the butchers arms towards the end of the summer but that will depend on the progress of the renovation work.

Should you have any queries or be interested in the share offer then please feel free to email

    Towcester Area Door to Door - Can you help

    TADD (Towcester area door to door) has experienced a sustained 20% increase in demand for taking residents to their Medical Appointments.

    The trustees are concerned that for the first time in the last 7 years we have been unable help a small number people over the last few months attend their medical appointments due to a lack of Volunteer drivers on certain days and times

    Recently we have increased our Voluntary Drivers by 10% BUT we need to increase it by at least another 30%/40% to meet the increasing demand of residents and to ease the work load of current drivers.

    Can you help?
