Residents have their say

Hundreds of residents in Helmdon have had a chance to have their say on the future of the village.

A Future Needs Day was held in the village recently when villagers were asked for their contributions to go towards Helmdon's Parish Plan.

County councillor James Shepherd-Cross and leader of South Northants Council, Robin Digby, joined the residents when they visited Helmdon School at the beginning of August to take part in a community-wide consultation.

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 Plan.

The Parish Plan is intended to ascertain the needs of the village and the day was to encourage residents to share their views.

Danny Moody, a parish councillor and chairman of the Helmdon Parish Plan steering group, said: "Several thought-provoking ideas that we received will form the basis of the village survey in September, giving everyone a further chance to air their views on the future."
