Could you help spread some comfort and joy this Christmas?

Posted: Thu, 21 Nov 2019 11:06 by Parish Office

Warm-hearted residents can offer some cheer to people in need this Christmas by donating items to a festive parcel scheme.

The annual Comfort and Joy campaign helps those who are staying in refuges as a result of experiencing domestic abuse, as well as other vulnerable families who are struggling at Christmas. More »

Jointly organised by the Daventry District and South Northamptonshire Community Safety Partnership and the Daventry District Forum, its aim is to provide them with a few gifts and treats, as well as food, toiletries and other essential items.

The project also raises awareness of domestic abuse, incidents of which tend to increase over the Christmas period.

Parcels for men, women and children as well as Christmas food parcels are being put together and a list of suggested donations can be found at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/CommunitySafety

Donations can be made at the Daventry District Council offices, in Lodge Road, Daventry, at Daventry Police Station, in New Street, at Daventry Fire Station, in Staverton Road and at the South Northamptonshire Council offices at The Forum, Moat Lane, Towcester, up to and including Tuesday 17 December.

All of the items donated will go directly to local people living in refuges as well as other vulnerable families in Daventry District, South Northamptonshire and the wider county area this Christmas.

The Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service, which runs a number of refuges across Northamptonshire, will once again be helping to distribute the parcels.

Anyone who is experiencing domestic violence is urged to call the Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service 24-hour helpline on 0300 0120154 or visit www.ndas.co

Poll cards being sent out for General Election

Posted: Mon, 18 Nov 2019 11:06 by Parish Office

Poll cards are being sent to homes throughout the Daventry constituency ahead of next month's General Election.

The poll cards contain information about how to vote on polling day, including the location of people's polling stations and the voting hours, which run from 7am until 10pm on Thursday 12 December. More »

When voting on the day, it is helpful if people take their poll cards with them, but if they do not have it with them they can still vote.

Daventry District Council verifies and counts the votes for the Daventry Parliamentary Constituency, which includes Daventry District as well as to two wards from the borough of Wellingborough (Earls Barton and West) and the South Northamptonshire district wards of Harpole & Grange, and Heyfords & Bugbrooke.

Those who are not yet registered to vote still have time to register in order to have their say in this election. This should be done at www.gov.uk/registertovote by midnight on Tuesday 26 November.

People who would like to vote by post have until 5pm on Tuesday 26 November to submit their application. Once people have received their postal vote they should mark their vote on the ballot paper and send it back so that it arrives by close of poll, which is 10pm on Thursday 12 December.

Anyone who cannot get to a polling station and wishes to appoint someone to vote on their behalf can apply for a proxy vote up to 5pm on Wednesday 4 December, though if an elector falls ill or is called away on business after this date, they may be able to apply for a proxy vote up to 5pm on 12 December

For more information about the election, including details of how to apply for a postal or proxy vote and the list of candidates, please visit www.daventrydc.gov.uk/GE2019 » Less
