Have your say on Phase 2 of the County Council’s budget proposals, the proposed level of Council Tax for 2018/19 and the draft Council Plan

From Northamptonshire County Council

Phase 2 of our consultation is now live. This includes consultation on the level of Council Tax we propose to set for 2018/19 and more savings and income generation proposals (adding up to a value of £24.7m) on how we will manage next year’s budget. It also includes the draft Council Plan 2018-19 to 2019-20, which sets out our vision for how we will deliver services and be financially sustainable.

A post on behalf of the Happy at Home project

The Happy At Home project is going from strength to strength and are looking for more volunteers in the South Northants area (especially Towcester and Yardley Gobion) to help local elderly people within the community to feel less isolated in their own homes.
Whether it be visiting them for a cup of tea and a chat, going for a walk, help with some shopping or helping out with the many activities we hold such as ‘High Teas’, hand pampering sessions, events within local residential homes, we would really love to hear from you.
If you would like to help and get involved and can offer as little as an hour a week then please contact us: Sharon 07841874915 or Nicola 07932086457

Thank you so much and we look forward to hearing from you.
