Volunteer to help those in need
Northamptonshire County Council are taking the lead in coordinating the local efforts of people that want to volunteer to help the vulnerable in the community. The Parish Council has decided that it would be best if anyone in the Parish wants the help they should do so via the County Council.
If anyone is able to help out can they please visit the NCC website
There is also the NHS Volunteer Responders call issued by the Government, details of which can be found here
Normally the Parish Council does not advertise commercial organisations on its website. However in the current COVID-19 pandemic situation we are allowing certain services to be advertised if they provide help and assistance to the local community.
If anyone knows of a company that they think is providing a useful service to the community please contact the Parish Council and we will assess them and if suitable, advertise their services in the News Section of the website

Message from the Canal & River Trust
Whilst our canals and rivers remain open, we are letting everyone know that, in an effort to keep everyone safe, use of them should now be limited.
If our waterways are local to you, and you use the towpath for your daily exercise or journey to undertake essential work, we are now urging you to please avoid any stretches with boats moored against the towpath, and of course, strictly observe social distancing at all times, always following the latest advice from Government.

As concerns over Covid-19 increase, members of the public are reminded of the need to only use the 999 or 101 service where it is absolutely necessary, and to otherwise use the online reporting systems in place.
While the Force continues to deal with Covid-19 and understand the detail of the Prime Ministers announcement, the force is urging people to head online to report non-emergency incidents and crimes. More »
If the 101 call isn't urgent, people should use the online forms available at www.northants.police.uk
The public can help reduce wait times by going digital, and thereby free up 999 and 101 for people who really need to speak to the police.
Superintendent Ash Tuckley, who heads the control room, said: "During these unprecedented times, we know that people are worried and they may feel they need to call the police. However we are reminding people that not all calls are emergencies and not all of these require an immediate police response.
"Inevitably what happens is that the queue builds up because everyone is trying to call one central call centre. This can lead to long wait times.
"Last year – 2018/19 – control room operators answered 280,531 calls to the 101 number, averaging 1,178 calls a day, of which 320 were 999 calls. By comparison, on average only 167 crimes were recorded a day.
"The majority of people are already making sacrifices to save lives and we urge everyone in Northamptonshire to follow the advice and help keep us all safe."
