Storm Doris caused a large branch of a tree on the school field to come down yesterday. The tree is on the school field, next to the fence that runs along gravel path behind the toddler swings. It’s a major branch but still part attached to the tree and I am a bit concerned that if climbed, it may fall away altogether. I’ve already had to pull two boys off it after school today and although the school have told pupils to stay away there’s not much they can do outside school hours.
It’s been logged on Street Doctor – they’ve said they’ll come out within 5 days but meanwhile it is up to parents to keep children away from it.

Hi,
I am trying to find archive pictures of my Mum either at Helmdon Primary School in a group photo maybe or in Helmdon generally as a youngster or teenager or a group photo at the High School.
Freda Russell (nee Feasey) was born in Helmdon and went to school with Tony Smith, Geoff Gulliver so anyone from that era who either went to Helmdon or Brackley High School.
She lived in what was then known as 'The Jit' with Violet Feasey (nee Ayres) and Arthur Feasey, her sister Monica and brother Roland.
Would appreciate any information as all the pictures my Nan had disappeared when she died hence we don't have any pictures of Mum when she was young.
Could you please email me at chrissiesk@yahoo.co.uk.
Many thanks in anticipation.

We have been given a bunch of car keys that do not belong to us, found when the our car was valeted before going away on holiday.

The car is a Volkswagon make, serviced at Moreton Pinkney Garage. We have tried to trace the key without success.

Please contact: 01295 760438

If you go to hisory resources, then reminiscences, you will find an article by Marjorie Watson on The Grange, or Grange Farm, and there is a photo. If you click the search facility at the top of the website you will find more references. As for Green Row, which is most probably where grass and modern bungaows are today (now called The Green), if you put this into the search there is an interesting message. Please e-mail me with any other questions and let me know if you would like to go on our list of researchers. Good luck.

My great-grandfather, William Sansam, is listed on the 1851 Census living in Green Row with his Mother, Hannah, who is listed as a lacemaker. William was 16 at the time and listed as a labourer.
On the 1841 Census - they were living at The Grange and there is no occupation listed for Hannah - William was only 6.

Does anyone have any old photos of GreenRow and The Grange please

Christmas tree collection muddle!

I think many of us were going by the S. Northants Council recycling website:

"Residents are also reminded they can put their real Christmas trees out for collection next to, or ideally in, the green bin when collections resume during the week commencing Monday, 9 January, ensuring decorations are removed."

I don't think it was our fault if we put our trees out on that date as instructed - even if it was black bin collection on that day. The instructions were confusing and could have been better worded.

Just warning residents in Helmdon that my husband had his van broken into last night (5th January 2017)! Nothing was taken thank goodness - we live on Church Street.

I am collecting used postage stamps for Cancer Research UK. THis is a newly launched appeal from the charity which will turn the stamps into cash. It will be a long term commitment, not just for this season. If you can help please leave your stamps at 49, Church St Helmdon. Many thanks

Many thanks to all who have decided to open The Reading Room for drinks on Christmas day. (The Bell will be closed all Christmas day and all Boxing day).

Great idea: many thanks. I knew somebody would come to our rescue!!

(I think the opening hours are 11.30 to 1.30 - but Bill England is the one to ask.)

My son came across tyres and wheels on the Radstone Rd. several weeks ago. The car in front of him hit one. The car driver and my son, (who was on his motorbike), stopped and cleared them from the road. They threw them into the back of the verge/ ditch at the time, to avoid any further collisions. They may be the same ones, not sure?
