15 July 2019Police Appeal For Information After Further Incidents Of Illegal Sheep Butchery

Northamptonshire Police is urging rural communities to look out for and report any suspicious activity following four incidents this week where livestock have been killed and professionally butchered in their field.
Fourteen lambs were killed in a field off the A428 between Crick and West Haddon, sometime between 4pm on Sunday 7 July and 4pm on Monday, 8 July. The carcasses of 12 lambs were stolen and the remains left in the field, with a further two killed but left at the scene.
Between 8am on Tuesday, July 9 and 8am on Wednesday, July 10, 21 lambs were slaughtered and stolen from a field off the Nobottle Road near Whilton in Daventry, with their remains left behind in the field.
This morning, Saturday, July 13, the remains of at least 10 sheep were found in a field in Harrington Road, Kelmarsh, and in Moulton, a lamb was found injured in a field in Boughton Road, after being tied up with electric fence wire.
To help protect livestock and catch those responsible, Northamptonshire Police is urging people who live and work in rural locations to report anything suspicious they see.
Neighbourhood Inspector Scott Little said: “To have this many incidents in just a few days is extremely concerning and we are appealing for information from the rural community to help us catch those responsible.
“Inquiries are ongoing into these incidents and we are asking for anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in these areas over the past week to get in touch. We’d also like to hear from anyone who may have any dash cam or CCTV footage that might be relevant or any other information that could assist the investigation. 
“The lambs appear to have been professionally slaughtered and their carcasses have then been stolen. For farmers to find their animals have been killed and butchered like this is not only very upsetting, it also has financial repercussions.
“If you see something that strikes you as unusual, out of the ordinary or just a bit ‘off’ please let us know by calling 101 or making a report online. If you think a crime is happening at the time, please call 999.
“Even a small piece of information may be a vital key that allows us to link similar offences and help us identify and bring those responsible for these crimes to justice.
“We also want farmers to be aware that this has been happening and neighbourhood officers will be visiting farmers and landowners on their patch over the next few days. We're also advising that any loose fencing, pens or similar equipment that may be in your fields is removed and securely stored.
"If you suspect someone has attempted to target your animals, or find that you’ve lost livestock in this way, please report it to the police immediately.
Suspicious activity and non-emergency crime can be reported to Northamptonshire Police on 101 or online at www.northants.police.uk/reportonline. In an emergency, always call 999.
Information can also be shared anonymously via Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111.

04 June 2019A5 KILSBY TO WEEDON Multi-Disciplinary Project Update Bulletin 6 – 31.5.2019

Since my last bulletin on 20th May 2019 we have been carrying out main drainage works in Phase 3 (from the Flore roundabout to the Heart of The Shires shopping village) and Phase 4 (from the Heart of The Shires shopping village to Daventry Road (Norton)), as part of our essential maintenance scheme to the A5 between Kilsby and Weedon. These works have been carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am Monday to Friday inclusive.   These main drainage works have included standard kerbing, kerbing combined with drainage outlets, repairs to existing drainage pipelines (based upon information from the CCTV inspections), using trenchless technology whenever possible but, also excavating where necessary, construction of new road gulley drainage connections, ditch clearing, construction of headwalls to pipe outlets in ditches and reprofiling of verges. 
 
Main Drainage works in Phase 3 are planned for completion by 6am Friday 7th June 2019 with works to Phase 4 continuing for approximately 3 – 4 more weeks.

I can confirm that, as previously stated, we are returning to Phase 2 (from Weedon Bec crossroads to the new Flore roundabout). to resurface the carriageway over the weekend of 7th – 10th June 2019. These resurfacing works will be carried out between 8pm Friday night and 6am Monday morning. 
 
Weedon Bec crossroads will be closed to vehicles during Phase 2. This is to allow for the reconstruction of damaged drainage pipes by excavation in two separate locations within the crossroads. We would prefer to carry out these works during Phase 1, when the crossroads will be closed for resurfacing. Unfortunately, due to the extent of resurfacing works in Phase 1, there is not enough time left in the programme to accommodate these additional works and reopen the road by 6am on Monday 10th June 2019. However, there is time in the Phase 2.
 
Works to Phase 2 are planned as follows:

Friday 7th June – 8pm – 12 midnight: Install Vehicle and Pedestrian Traffic Management, milling carriageway up to a depth of 220mm (including areas above drainage pipes to be repaired in crossroads) and deal with any soft spots found after milling carriageway. Saturday 8th June 12.01am – 12 midnight: Milling carriageway to depth of 220mm and deal with any soft spots found after milling carriageway, lay Geogrid mesh reinforcement material, excavate and repair damaged drainage pipes in crossroads, resurface carriageway with compacted layers of basecourse, binder course and surface course material and resurface footpaths with binder course and surface course materials. Sunday 9th June 12.01am – 5pm: Resurface carriageway with compacted layers of basecourse, binder course and surface course materials, allow area of resurfaced carriageway to cool / cure before applying road markings, excavate and repair damaged drainage pipes in crossroads and apply temporary and permanent road markings.
 
As soon as all works are completed in Phase 2, vehicle and pedestrian traffic management will be removed and the road opened to through traffic.: 
  
I can also confirm that we are returning to Phase 1 (from the BP service station to the Weedon Bec crossroads) to resurface the carriageway over the weekend of 14th – 17th June 2019. Weedon Bec crossroads will also be closed to vehicles during Phase 1. These resurfacing works will also be carried out between 8pm Friday night and 6am Monday morning. 
 
Works to Phase 1 are planned as follows:

Friday 14th June – 8pm – 12 midnight: Install Vehicle and Pedestrian Traffic Management, milling carriageway up to a depth of 220mm and deal with any soft spots found after milling carriageway. Saturday 15th June 12.01am – 12 midnight: Milling carriageway up to a depth of 220mm, deal with any soft spots found after milling carriageway, lay Geogrid mesh reinforcement materials, resurface footpaths with binder course and surface course materials and resurface carriageway with compacted layers of basecourse, binder course and surface course materials.  Sunday 16th June 12.01am – 12 midnight: Resurface carriageway with compacted layers of basecourse, binder course and surface course materials, allow area of resurfaced carriageway to cool / cure before applying road markings and cut for and install traffic loops in carriageway. Monday 17th June 12 midnight – 5am: Apply temporary and permanent road markings in carriageway.
 
As soon as all works are completed in Phase 1, vehicle and pedestrian traffic management arrangements will be removed and the road opened to through traffic. 
 
On Monday 17th, Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th June 2019 between 8pm and 6am we will be applying High Friction Surfacing in Phase 1. These works will also involve the overnight closure of Weedon Bec crossroads. Between 8pm and 12 midnight on the same nights we will also continue to cut for and install traffic loops in Phase 1.
 
NB: Please note that we are planning to start drainage works at 8pm on Monday 17th June 2019 in Phase 5 of our works along the A5 from Daventry Road (Norton) to B4036 Long Buckby. These works will continue for approximately 3 – 4 weeks.

LONG BUCKBY POST OFFICE RE-OPENS WITH EXTENDED HOURS AFTER BIG REFIT OF CO-OP STORE

·       Opens at The Co-op, High Street, Long Buckby, NN6 7RE

·       Major refurb of Co-op store

·       Modern open-plan retail environment

·       Open seven days a week

81 hours of Post Office service a week

Long Buckby Post Office has opened today (28 May) at The Co-op, High Street, Long Buckby, NN6 7RE with extended opening hours. This restores Post Office service to the area.

It is one of our new local style branches where Post Office services are delivered from an open-plan till alongside the retail counter.

The Co-op store has undergone a £600,000 refit to accommodate the Post Office.

Long Buckby Post Office, which had been based at 4 High Street, Long Buckby, NN6 7RD had been temporarily closed since February 2018 due to the resignation of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises, which we do not own, for Post Office use.

The opening hours are Monday to Saturday: 7am – 10pm; Sunday: 10am – 4pm.

This provides 81 hours of Post Office service a week, making it very convenient for customers to visit.

Phil Senior, Co-op Area Manager, said “As a community retailer, we are committed to playing an active role in local life, embracing the area’s community spirit.  We are always looking for ways to make life easier for our customers and the addition of Post Office services will be of great benefit to the local community. We have made a big £600,000 investment to this store to accommodate the Post Office and to modernise the shop.”

Mike Ball, Post Office Multiples Account Executive, said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents. We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs. This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office and will secure services for the future.”

30 April 2019DDC - Special offers to encourage county residents to get composting

Special offers to encourage county residents to get composting

Discounted compost bins are being offered to Northamptonshire residents in a bid to encourage more people to get composting.

As part of International Compost Awareness Week (5-11 May), the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership is working with getcomposting.com to offer discounted compost converters from as little as £18.50. Residents can also buy a second composter for just £9.25 thanks to a fantastic ‘buy one get one half price’ offer.

Get composting’s Blackwall and Rainsaver products are made from 100% percent recycled plastic, including a combination of plastics collected by councils from waste segregation sites and kerbside collections as well as industrial waste such as old gas pipes, old wheeled bins and car bumpers.

As well as compost bins, the site also offers food waste digesters and hot composters, allowing people to compost all of their household food waste.

The Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) estimates that the use of a home compost bin diverts approximately 150 kilogrammes of waste per household away from landfill sites each year.

It is also a cheaper alternative to chargeable garden waste collections and has the added benefit of producing a free supply of top-quality compost, which has multiple uses including as a soil improver, mulch or plant feed and helps gardens retain moisture.

Cllr Tim Allebone, Chairman of the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership, said: “Composting is simple to do and around 30% of the average household waste can be composted.

“Although many households already compost at home, we want others to get involved, and this is a great incentive to encourage more residents to get composting and set up their own composting communities, sharing the rewards.

“Home composting organic waste also helps to significantly reduce carbon emissions and can be used as an effective and sustainable waste management method to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.”

For full details of the offers, visit www.getcomposting.com, or call 0844 571 4444.

The buy one get one half price offer is available on selected products. A one-off delivery charge of £5.99 applies.

The Northamptonshire Waste Partnership (NWP) is a partnership of Northamptonshire councils and was set up to improve joint working arrangements on waste management matters.
