22 September 2020Aldwincle Play Area
The Parish Council discussed the the possibility of re-opening the Play Area at its meeting on 7th September, but having considered the Government advice, and the risks associated with the Aldwincle site through its relationship with the school, decided to keep the area closed, until at least September 21st. This will also provide an opportunity to repair the collapsed stone wall. The PC have subsequently reviewed the situation and in the light of the increased risk of a second wave of the Covid 19 virus, and the priority being attached to safeguarding schools, we will continue to keep the Play Area closed.
04 August 2020Titchmarsh Glebe Land
It has been brought to the Parish Council's notice that the Peterborough Diocese intends to sell an option on the Glebe Land that runs on the East side of the A605 from the existing warehouse area opposite Lazy Acre down to beyond the mini roundabout and lay-by on the A605. This would be a major extension of the existing warehouse area, encroaching further on green space separating Thrapston from Titchmarsh.
At this stage, there is no Planning Application for this land but there is the opportunity to sign a petition to the Peterborough Diocese and to write to the Bishop if you wish to object to their proposal (Deadline 13th August).

07 July 2020Coronavirus Community Resilience Hub
A Local Resilience Hub has been set up in Northamptonshire to help in the co-ordination of support to those who are self-isolating and vulnerable. Within Aldwincle every household has been given a card with the phone numbers of volunteers offering to assist with food deliveries, medicines, or just acting as a voice on the end of the phone for contact or other advice.
We are fortunate to have Watties in the village, and Pat and Trevor are working hard to provide deliveries for those that are isolated.
The Resilience Hub also has a helpline 0300 126 1000 (option5) which links in with District and Borough Councils where futher assistance is required. Their latest Newsletter is available here
