Mears Ashby are once again undertaking a voluntary litter picking session, this time on Wilby Road out of their village. The planned date is Saturday 30th March next. This exercise is supported by Wellingborough Norse who provide all the necessary kit.
Does anyone in Wilby want to join them to help with this important community exercise?
The event is expected to start at 10am and anyone interested should contact Ute Graham on 01604 812814 for more details.
This also provides a perfect opportunity to once again thank our dedicated residents on Post Office Lane, who daily clear both sides of Main Road on their way to and from Sainsburys. Their voluntary work in the village really does make a real difference.
A reminder that the brown garden waste bins are being emptied again from this Friday 8th March, after the winter break.
There have been a number of burglaries in Earls Barton and Great Doddington over the last week, please check your out buildings, make sure they are secure and that you have locked your main property when you are at home or away and set the alarm if you have one . Leave your house lights on and a car on the drive making it look like there is someone home.

The Speed Indication Device (SID) is very shortly due back in Wilby once again, after completing a stint in Mears Ashby, with whom we share the equipment.
We are extremely grateful to residents Michael Graves and Jon Willey for managing the deployment on behalf of the Parish Council and all of us in Wilby.
We now have a report available to view, which shows the initial data captured from SID when it was deployed at 4 different sites in the village between June and August this year. Please do click below to have a look!
