HOW TO CREATE AND PLANT A SUCCESSFUL POND - with Speaker Linda Smith, from Waterside Nursery, Sharnford, Leicestershire

03 October 2019Passengers at Long Buckby advised to check journeys amid timetable change from Monday 7th October 2019

Passengers using Long Buckby station are being advised to check their travel plans when a revised London Northwestern Railway timetable comes into effect next week (w/c Oct 7).

The changes, which are being made to improve performance across the network, will reduce the number of Birmingham-bound services calling at the station per hour from three to two.

The services which will no longer stop are those which previously called at Long Buckby at 25 minutes past the hour, between 0925 and 1725 inclusive, from Monday to Saturday. Southbound services towards London Euston are unaffected.

Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director for London Northwestern Railway, said: “Keeping our trains running on time is our top priority and it is sometimes necessary to make changes to calling patterns in order to save vital minutes.

“Our services suffer frequent delays between Coventry and Birmingham and removing one call per hour at Long Buckby will result in significant improvements in performance, benefiting all our passengers.

“While our analysis shows the affected services are not heavily used, we thank our customers at Long Buckby for their understanding and urge passengers to check their journeys before travelling.”

17 September 2019New websites will outline journey to unitary

Two new websites have been launched offering a reliable source of information about the move toward unitary governance in Northamptonshire.

Named ‘Future Northants North’ and ‘Future Northants West’ they carry the same core information while outlining the separate processes being followed in the north and west of the county.

These dedicated sites describe the process so far, who is involved, progress from public meetings, and news including details of the upcoming shadow authority elections.

Strategic Delivery Director for the Future Northants unitary programme Theresa Grant, said: “This is by far and away the best means of keeping up to date with our progress.

“There is understandably a great deal of speculation about our move toward unitary governance and these two sites offer the most reliable means of ensuring you are aware of the facts and keeping up to date on progress.

“And if the sites don’t have answers to your questions, you will be able to contact us and be confident of an accurate response.”

The sites are available at https://futurenorthantsnorth.org/  and https://www.futurenorthantswest.org/

11 September 2019A grand offer to help good neighbours thrive

Communities in Daventry District can apply for up to £1,000 of funding to set up a scheme aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of their residents.

Daventry District Council (DDC) is offering the grants to groups wanting to set up a Good Neighbours Scheme in their area, as well as a toolkit, based on national good practice, to help them get established.

Good Neighbours Schemes work by setting up a volunteer co-ordinator in a village, parish, or neighbourhood area, whose job is to match people who need help with vetted volunteers in the area who are willing to be a good neighbour by offering that help.

They are currently up and running in Moulton, Crick, Welton, Byfield, while there are six further schemes pending in Kilsby, Woodford Halse, Long Buckby, Boughton, Welford and Creaton.

The scheme’s profile was raised on a national level recently when it was featured in the Village Survival Guide, a new book published by the Prince's Countryside Fund which aims to help rural communities thrive. The Guide is available at https://www.princescountrysidefund.org.uk/research/read-vsg

The Good Neighbours scheme is run by DDC in partnership with Northamptonshire ACRE to help combat social isolation and loneliness, and develop community spirit and cohesion.

DACT (Daventry Area Community Transport) can help set up Village Travel Clubs, and Daventry Volunteer Centre Happy at Home Partnership can help with the recruiting of volunteers. 

Councillor Alan Hills, Portfolio Holder for Community, Culture and Leisure, said: “Good Neighbours Scheme are already proving really valuable in a number of areas of Daventry District, by giving a helping hand to the most vulnerable and isolated members of our community.

“We’d love to see more schemes established throughout the District and there is funding and support available, so I would urge parishes and community groups to please get in touch with us to find out how to get involved.”

11 September 2019A helping hand to keep District homes warm

Vulnerable households across Daventry District are being offered a helping hand to reduce their energy bills from the Warm Homes Fund.

The Northants Warm Homes partnership has secured nearly £4 million to provide fully-funded gas central heating for fuel poor homes across Northamptonshire that do not already have it.

The money will be matched by other grant monies and by contributions from landlords and local authorities to ensure that eligible homes will not need to pay a penny.

The households eligible for the Warm Homes Fund are those most in need of support, including people on a low income that have high energy bills, and who are vulnerable to the cold because of health conditions.

Both owner-occupiers and private tenants can apply, though tenants will need the permission of their landlord. The project aims to put ‘first-time’ gas central heating in homes, so properties with central heating powered by oil, or in villages which are off the gas network, are not eligible.

The Warm Homes Fund scheme will run until 2021 and fit efficient gas central heating in around 1,400 fuel-poor homes across the county. It is run by Surefire Management Services on behalf of local authorities in the county, including Daventry District Council.

Councillor Richard Auger, Environmental Health and Housing Portfolio Holder on Daventry District Council, said: “This Council believes that everyone should have a good quality and safe place to live.

“Being able to heat your home properly and efficiently is an important part of that and we hope this new programme will help reduce fuel poverty and have a positive impact on people’s health.

“I would urge anyone who thinks they might be eligible to visit the website or call the freephone number to find out more.”

Nationally, the Warm Homes Fund has been established by National Grid and is administered by Affordable Warmth Solutions.

Jeremy Nesbitt, Managing Director of Affordable Warmth Solutions, said: “We are excited about this investment from National Grid and are delighted to support Daventry District Council to fund the scheme to address fuel poverty across their area.

“Solving the issues associated with fuel poverty continues to challenge many of our stakeholders and the feedback we’ve already received provides evidence of how the Warm Homes Fund will make a positive difference to thousands of homes throughout Great Britain.”

All support through the Warm Homes Fund scheme is subject to the eligibility criteria.

To find out more visit www.northantswarmhomes.com or phone 0800 029 4542. All visits will be by appointment only and assessors will carry photo ID.

Residents can also access advice and support to improve their home’s energy efficiency and reduce their bills at www.northamptonshireenergysavingservice.org.uk

16 August 2019Plans progress for new leisure centre

Plans are moving forward to develop a new leisure centre to serve communities in the east of Daventry District.

Daventry District Council (DDC) and Moulton College have agreed that DDC will buy the Chris Moody Centre, an existing sports facility on the College’s campus and convert it into a public leisure centre. Providing a new leisure and sports facilities for residents and community use in the eastern part of the District is a priority for the Council, which plans to use developer contributions to fund the project.

The new centre would include a swimming pool, state of the art fitness suite and multi-purpose rooms for classes, functions and group cycling. Local schools and clubs currently using the facilities at Moulton would continue to be able to do so under the Council’s proposals.

DDC will be applying for planning permission for the changes, with it being planned that work would begin on the new leisure centre in early 2020.

Councillor Alan Hills, DDC’s Community Culture and Leisure Portfolio Holder, said: ““We are pleased to be working with Moulton College to achieve our vision for the new leisure centre.

“It will be an important hub for sport and leisure activity across the east of our District, helping to meet the need for more local amenities in the light of major future housing growth in the area.”

Corrie Harris, Principal of Moulton College said: “We are delighted to be able to engage with the local and regional community and contribute positively to the council’s investment strategy. The centre will be a superb leisure facility that will be enjoyed by many for years to come.

“The current facility is not central to the college’s educational offer and its conversion into a public leisure centre will widen its use among the community by local people, schools and clubs.”

Plans for a new leisure centre in the eastern part of Daventry District were identified as the top priority within the Council’s Sports Facilities Investment Strategy, which was adopted in February this year following public consultation

06 August 2019Parish Council Meeting - Monday 12th August 2019

The next Meeting of the Parish Council will be held on Monday 12th August 2019 at 7:30pm in Long Buckby Library.  A copy of the Agenda is available to view here 

Everyone welcome to attend.

02 August 2019REPORT A SUSPECTED HOUSE IN MULTIPLE OCCUPATION (HMO) CALL DDC's 24-HOUR HOTLINE 01327 302288

You may have recently seen the attached article which was published in Daventry Calling.  A 24-hour hotline has been launched by Daventry District Council in a bid to improve living conditions for people in privately rented or shared housing.

If you do have any concerns about the condition of a privately rented property in the District or a home that you suspect could be a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO), please let us know.  You can contact us below:

www.daventrydc.gov.uk/hmo

Email: environmentalimprovement@daventrydc.gov.uk

Hotline: 01327 302288

The rental market plays an important role in providing housing for people living in our District, and HMOs provide cheaper accommodation for residents whose housing options are limited.  However, they also pose greater risks than other types of accommodation for overcrowding and fire, which is why DDC is working to ensure that all HMOs are safe and properly licenced.

New laws introduced last year state that a licence is required for a HMO if:

•          5 or more people live in the property, and

•          The tenants form more than 2 separate households or groups i.e. a couple and a family of three, and

•          The tenants share facilities such as a bathroom and kitchen.

Do you live in or near a shared house?  Signs to look out for include:

•          Lots of different people living at the property or leaving/entering at different times.

•          Issues of property disrepair – broken windows, water leaks, missing roof tiles, unkempt gardens.

•          Pest infestations.

•          Inadequate storage of rubbish.

•          Lots of vehicles parked and visiting the property.

•          Excessive noise coming from the property.

Report any concerns you may have in confidence and DDC will investigate further.

31 July 2019Northants Police Operation Stock - Suspicious Vehicle Sought

Following suspicious circumstances on a sheep farm in Warwickshire, just across the county/Daventry boundary, we are keen to be informed of sightings of a white van challenged by a vigilant farmer on his land. We have full details of the vehicle: it's registration ends VXF and it has writing on the back including a company name 'Plantation Shutters' and we want to speak to the driver/occupants. Enquiries with the bona fide company of this name indicates it has no connection, hence our interest. If seen in Northamptonshire, please report on 101 or 999 depending on the circumstances, quoting Operation Stock (crime reference 1900036556)

31 July 2019Criminals Targeting People With Universal Credit Scam

Action Fraud has received 63 reports about a scam in which fraudsters target people with offers of “low cost” loans or “free” government grants. What the victims aren’t told is that the money they’ll receive is actually an advance payment for Universal Credit. The criminals use the personal information they’ve obtain under false pretences to make an application in the victim’s name. After the fraudsters have taken their “fee” from the advance payment, the victim is then left to pay back the total amount once their repayments begin.

How you can protect yourself:

Never share your personal or financial information with someone you don’t know and trust, especially if it’s in response to an offer of “free money” or a “free grant”.

Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) staff will never approach you in the street or ask for your personal/financial details over social media.

If you have concerns about your benefits, you should visit www.gov.uk/contact-jobcentre-plus

If you suspect your identity may have been stolen, you can check your credit rating quickly and easily online. You should do this every few months anyway, using a reputable service provider and following up on any unexpected or suspicious results.

 

18 July 2019Are your dog's microchip details up-to-date?

Dog owners are being reminded of the importance of making sure the information on their pet’s microchip is kept up-to-date.

Daventry District Council’s Dog Warden service is issuing the advice after coming across a number of cases recently in which a lost dog’s chip contained information for their owner’s old address – making it difficult to reunite them.

A microchip is a small electronic chip, around the size of a grain of rice, which is painlessly implanted under the dog's skin and contains a unique number that can be read by a scanner.

The dog owner's contact details are logged on a central database, so should the dog be found after going missing or being stolen it can be scanned and quickly returned to its owner.

Since April 2016 dog owners have been required by law to make sure their dog is microchipped, with those who fail to do so facing fines of up to £500.

As well as helping reunite owners with lost or stolen pets, microchipping also has a number of other welfare benefits, including:

·         Helping to prevent the theft of dogs

·         Allowing for easier identification of owners who are guilty of animal cruelty

·         Enabling vets and the Council to contact dog owners directly if a stray is found

·         Tackling the issue of stray dogs by promoting responsible dog ownership.

Councillor Richard Auger, Environmental Health and Housing Portfolio Holder on Daventry District Council, said: “Microchipping is the most effective tool for our officers to reunite dog owners with their lost pets. However, it’s only useful if the information on the chip is kept up-to-date, and it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure this is done. If you move house you must contact the database company that your dog is registered with and update your details.”

People are also being urged to ensure they properly report any stray dogs they find so they can be reunited with their owners. 

If you have lost or found a dog, please contact Daventry District Council on 01327 871100. If you find a dog outside of normal office hours, or on a Saturday or Sunday, please contact Dunsmore Kennels on 024 7654 2566 or visit www.dunsmorekennels.com

Anyone who finds a dog during the evening or when the kennels are otherwise closed is advised to keep the dog overnight if they can, before contacting the kennels or the Council. Please ensure you do not put yourself at risk of being bitten or attacked by the dog if you are prepared to secure a dog overnight.
