Have a say on Priorities

Residents in Helmdon are being asked to give their views on the current and future needs of their village.

Their views and opinions are being sought as part of community-wide consultation day to be held at Helmdon School on Saturday, August 2.

Daventry MP Tim Boswell, Northamptonshire county councillor James Shepherd-Cross, and other local dignitaries will join village residents on the day.

The three times winner and current holders of the prestigious title of Northamptonshire Village of the Year, Helmdon has recently been granted funding from the Countryside Agency's Vital Villages Programme, which is sponsored by South Northamptonshire Council and Northamptonshire ACRE, to carry out a parish plane.

The parish plan is intended to ascertain the future needs of the village and the aim of the Future Needs Day is to gain views, thoughts, concerns and ideas on topics, ranging from youth, transport amenities, housing and development, environment and culture.

After the day the parish plan will continue with a village-wide questionnaire which will give everyone the opportunity to give written comments on a whole range of issues affecting a rural community in the twenty first century.

For more information on the Future Needs Day, e-mail the chairman of the Helmdon parish plan, Danny Moody on dmoody@btinternet.com or call him on (01295) 768090.
