Work has been carried out on the Church yard trees, this has included work to the Hornbeam and the removal of the 2 Cypress trees which has opened up the view of the Church when driving in from North Street.
The Parish Council are looking to work with the church to turn the remaining stumps into a bench.
As some of you may be aware SNC offer New Homes Bonus Grants and this year Rothersthopre Parish Council were successful in their application for a grant. We will use the grant money to upgrade the street ligths in the village. This work should start sometime in Aug 2019 and we will upgrade 15 lamps. The main focus of the upgrade will be around the Kislingbury cross roads, the school and the open space project.
The Parish Council would encourage you to use the below links. To inform you of the future plans and to not miss out by having your say on this matter. We would encourage all to voice their comments. Thank you
In light of the recent rural crime that has taken place across Northamptonshire (Illegal sheep slaughtering) The rural crime team is especially keen to encourage people to be aware of and report wildlife-related crime. Even if you feel that the information may be trivial, they would still like to be made aware as it all helps to build up their intelligence picture.
The Village sign has been smartened up (the back board had rotted away), thanks to Mike Barber for completing this work and to everyone else who has given up free time and effort to help complete jobs around the village.
Andy Johnson has done a sterling job over the years in maintaining this website and has now stepped down from this role. On behalf of the whole village, I would like to thank him for keeping things ticking along. Thank you.
I , Nick Henry, now have this dubious honor and will endeavour to maintain the site.
ACRE have published a rural events calendar for 2019/20 which lets you know information about local events including shows etc. Please find a link to the calendar here The RPC now have an ACRE representative so this kind of information should be available more often and will be published as soon as it is received.
SENT ON BEHALF OF NORTHAMPTONSHIRE RURAL CRIME TEAM
Rural residents and workers are being encouraged to use an online reporting form to alert police to any suspicious or criminal activity in their area.
Northamptonshire Police’s rural crime team, whose remit includes wildlife and heritage crime, wants to hear from people about anything which strikes them as out of the ordinary.
PC Abbey Anstead said: “We always want to hear about incidents, and our online reporting form is a really quick and easy way to tell us about non-emergency crime and suspicious activity.
“If you’re a victim of crime or see something that doesn’t seem right, follow your gut instinct and report it to us, because we need the information you have – you are the eyes and ears of your community.
“Don’t worry that you’re wasting our time. No matter how small an incident, we need to know about it so we have an accurate picture of rural criminal activity to help us take targeted action against it.”
The rural crime team is especially keen to encourage people to be aware of and report wildlife-related crime.
PC Anstead said: “Even a small piece of information helps build a bigger picture. Completing the online reporting form only takes a few minutes, and the information provided really does help us better serve our rural communities and protect people and wildlife from harm.”
Report crime and suspicious activity by filling out the online reporting form here
or call 101. In an emergency, dial 999. Information can also be shared anonymously with Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111.
