East Haddon War Memorial

You may have noticed that since Tuesday of this week our War Memorial is looking something of a sad sight. The reason for this is that the slate tablets on which the names of the fallen are engraved were in danger of dropping out of their housings. In fact one of them did, onto the step beneath and split in two. I am pleased to say that this tablet can be repaired. The Parish Council's attempt to have the Memorial refurbished has tested our patience. We applied to the War Memorial Trust (WMT) for a grant. That was nearly 18 months ago. I kid you not! We are still in touch with them and hope that something will be forthcoming. In the mean-time we are having discussions with several stonemason's firms and would hope to have something meaningful shortly. We will keep you posted on progress as and when it happens both in this Newsletter and on the Parish web-site. Incidentally, in case you are wondering, the four slate tablets are stored in a safe place. More »

Public Spaces Protection Order

A new Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) will come into force on the 1st December 2018. It requires all dog

owners to obey the following rules:

- Pick up after your dog.
- Carry the means to pick up after your dog.
- Prevent your dog from entering a fenced-off play area.
- Put your dog on a lead when requested by an authorised officer.
- The number of dogs walked by a single person is limited to six.
- Smoking will be prohibited within children's play areas. More »

These regulations have been the result of public consultation. Daventry District Council (DDC) will, before 1st December, agree boundaries and signage in each parish.

The penalty for breaking these new regulations will be an on-the-spot fine of £100, or in serious cases, prosecution.

This subject can also be read in the DDC magazine - Daventry Calling. » Less
