Awards Scooped

Helmdon has just picked up an award for its outstanding website and came second overall in the Northants Calor Village of the Year competition.

Parish council chairman Peter Burns accepted the awards on behalf of the village at an awards ceremony held at the Northamptonshire ACRE Hunsbury Hill Centre in Northampton on Wednesday, July 27.

Picking up the Canon Dunn Memorial Bowl for information and communication technology, he said "This is a good day for Helmdon, a lot of effort went in to this year's competition and the awards are a credit to everyone involved."

The category assesses each village's use of websites, email and other forms of electronic media to enhance community life and improve communication.

Helmdon will now go on to represent Northants in the regional ICT category, results of which will be announced at a special London awards dinner in December.

Webmaster Danny Moody said: "I am delighted to win this award and I hope we represent Northamptonshire well at regional level.

"This isn't just about the website, the village primary school is very switched on regarding ICT and the majority of Helmdon residents have Internet access and use e-mail".

Helmdon was a previous winner of the Northants Village of the Year title in 1996, 1999 and 2002.
