About the Community as well as the Council
This website and the associated Facebook Group are sponsored by Rose of the Shires
On 1st April 2021, Northamptonshire County Council, Daventry District Council, Northampton Borough Council and South Northamptonshire Council will combine into a new Unitary Authority, "West Northamptonshire".
Officers and members of the existing councils have already started work to develop the new Unitary Authority
and on 7th May 2020 Northamptonshire people will be voting for councillors. Elections have been postponed for a year because of the Coronavirus.
So that people can share and debate their views on what the new Council should be doing we have created a West Northamptonshire Facebook Group. We hope it will be full of debate as the election approaches, all conducted with the decency and fairness outlined in our rules to which new members must agree.
But our Website and Facebook Group are about so much more. They cover anything that inspires and interests the people of West Northamptonshire. We tell people across the whole area about Events and Groups, both on line and in the real world.
We publish articles, of a similar pattern to this one, about anything that the community will want to read, including where to go, what to see and where to meet. We don't allow sales or adverts, but we do encourage businesses to submit articles which offer something special and appropriate to the community or share an interesting history or development.
Welcome to our website and Facebook Group for West Northamptonshire. We hope you will enjoy it and contribute too.
