Barby Village Clean up Saturday 4th January

Thanks to everyone who helped in today's litter pick.  Everyone involved did an amazing job and we can't thank you enough for giving up your time.. As can be seen from the photo the amount of rubbish that has so far been collected is incredible. There is still more to do and hopefully we will run another clean up in the parish in the spring time.

Closure of part of the A361 in Daventry
3rd February to 16th March 2020

As part of major works in relation to a major development off A361 Ashby Road in Daventry we have received a request to close a section from Middlemore to Daventry Court Hotel from 3rd February until 16th March.
This is to allow several utility companies to work together and install all the new services and reduce the potential duration of works on the A361.
The closure and diversion can be viewed here https://one.network/?tm=116012147
