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 consistent.

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.

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 www.hse.gov.uk/event-safety/index.htm.  or on the Northamptonshire Resilience Forum website under the Planning Events Tab https://www.northants.police.uk/lrf/

 Please contact us if you need any guidance or would like further information.
