Work has started trimming the hedges between the canal and the backs of Samwell Way and Ashpole Spinney.
The work is likely to take 2-3 days so could people please be aware and keep dogs on the lead.
There will be some damage to the grass which is unavoidable but it will soon green up and although the cutting back looks harsh it will recover soon. This is the first time these hedges have been trimmed in 25 years.

We have seen an increase in thefts from vehicles across Northampton. A number of witnesses have described seeing a man on a push bike in the area at the time of the thefts. Please be vigilant and if you see anyone acting suspiciously around vehicles call us on 999. As the owner or driver of a vehicle please ensure when you leave it there is nothing left on display, even a coat or small change in the console will be tempting enough for some to smash a window and see what else they can find.
