2 Notes for Contributors
To help us put the LINK together we would appreciate if you could
follow the following guidelines:-
Do write your articles in a word processor such as MS Word rather
than direct onto an email. Cutting and pasting from an email into
our publishing software does not work.
Do not write your headings in full capitals. We have to re-type them
when you do.
Do not leave more than one space after a full stop. May of us were
taught to leave 2 but our way is to leave one, and we have to be
Please dont use spaces to indent your paragraphs. If you do a
cariage return at the end of a paragraph, we will automatically
indent it when setting up LINK format.
We like to print the publication name LINK in capitals, so it would
help if you did too.
Do please read through your article before sending it. I know most
do, but it is obvious that some don't.

Council grant shines a light on Bugbrooke residents
A council grant of £12,000 has been awarded to Bugbrooke Parish
Council to install environmentally-friendly street lights in the
After the parish council consulted with residents, they approached
South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) with the project idea, which
proposed to replace the existing bulbs with energy-efficient street
lights that are more in keeping with the village.
The £12,000 SNC Community Grant will be used towards the
installation of the new lights, which will help save electricity and
maintenance costs, as well as reduce light pollution while providing
a well-lit environment for longer hours.
Cllr Peter Rawlinson, SNC’s portfolio holder for finance and
procurement, said: “The council works very hard to ensure that
villages and communities are preserved and enhanced for residents.
The project was well supported by the village and an investment like
this will have both economic and environmental benefits.
“Particularly with the darker mornings and nights drawing in,
switching to energy-efficient lights will ensure they can keep the
lights on from dusk to dawn, while still reducing energy costs at
the same time – a win-win situation.”
SNC Community Grants are mainly funded by the New Homes Bonus (NHB),
a grant paid to local authorities by central government for every
new home built within the district.
They are available to any not-for-profit organisations located in or
associated with the district.
A wide range of projects and activities may be eligible for help,
including capital projects (buildings and infrastructure), as well
as smaller projects such as supporting the purchase of much needed
equipment or the delivery of local schemes.
The deadline for the current round of funding is
30 November 2016.

Event Organisation Advice from SNDC
Following a recent fatality involving a bouncy castle at a fair (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-35906226)
the Commercial & Business Support Team have produced the attached
guidance to help organisers of village fetes and similar events.
These events are great community occasions and it is hoped the advice
sheets and checklists will help organisers consider some of the key
hazards at their event. If the Parish or Town Council is not
directly involved in organising these events, I would be grateful if you
could forward the information to the relevant person.
More detailed information can be found on the Health and Safety
Executive website at
or on the Northamptonshire Resilience Forum website under the Planning
