Heating Oil
Do you use heating oil? Have you found a dramatic increase in the cost? Would you be interested in hearing about ways to reduce your heating bills?
If so Northamptonshire ACRE would like to hear from you as they are looking into a scheme to organise bulk purchase of heating oil that could save you money. If you are interested in finding out more please contact the Rural Officer on 01604 825889 or email

Pot Holes
For several months I’ve been driving along Church Street banging into potholes and assuming that someone else had reported them. This week I went onto the council’s web site to report the problems and within two days the holes had been filled. So why didn’t I do this ages ago? Why didn’t someone else report them? No matter, it’s done and I feel good about it, next time I won’t leave it to someone else. What will you do?

The Memorial Garden continues to develop with the addition of the benches and there are more and more people using it. The information board gives details of the significant buildings in the village and a timeline of events.
The Parish Council wish to remind all users that the area is a memorial area and it should not be used for ball games.

    Just news — I was able to order Infinity broadband from BT today, going live for me on 2nd December — so unless they have made a mistake, it’s here and they’re taking orders.

    Is anybody else in the village excited about the new cabinet which has appeared? Hoping that speedy broadband is just around the corner. 🙂

      Excited is not the word I would use, especially as I have found out that at Kislingbury Grange hamlet have fibre optic already. Let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.

    Just to say how impressed I am with the Rothersthorpe website, a lot of hard work must have gone into to it well done!

      Hi Brenda – many thanks for your kind words. If you would like an item for the book club let me know. I’ve amended the user rights now so that you can add your own blog items and this can include photos, video, music, etc. It isn’t as straightforward as I’d like but I’m afraid that’s how the software works. Once again, thanks for your interest in the village web site.
