Following on from the 
success of the 2010 scheme, 
this year 27 premises 
applied and 21 of those 27 
achieved an accreditation. 

Assistant Chief Constable Andy Frost of 
Northamptonshire Police and Sue 
O'Callaghan, Head of Organisational 
Development, Carlsberg UK presented the 
awards to all the winners at The Old Bank, 
Northampton. 

The scheme was run by Northampton 
Community Safety Partnership in 


association with Northampton Pubwatch 
to help create a safer town and recognise 
the licensed premises that are working 
hard to reduce alcohol related disorder 
and promote responsible drinking. 

It is also recognised by the Bll (British 
Institute of Innkeeping) as a national 
benchmark for the licensed trade to 
demonstrate good practice. 

To be accredited as Best Bar None, 
licensed premises must meet the 
minimum standards in areas like door 
policy, crime reduction measures, 
policies on things like drunkenness and a 
wider sense of community responsibility.

Assistant Chief Constable, Andy Frost, 
Northamptonshire Police said: 

Best Bar None presents an opportunity for the licensed trade to work with 
Northamptonshire Police and Northampton Borough Council and partners, to 
reduce crime, especially violence and the fear of crime in and around licensed 
premises. It is a genuine attempt to improve standards and create a safer 
environment for customers to socialise in and staff to work in. It is part of our 
strategy to reduce violent crime associated with alcohol abuse, and helps to 
promote safer and more positive image of the night time economy in 
Northampton. Best Bar None offers the licensed trade a significant opportunity to 
demonstrate the hard work and commitment they place into ensuring that their 
premises are a safe and friendly environment and will help generate a safer and 
more positive image of the nighttime economy in Northampton. Best Bar None 
rewards and recognises this good practice. mm

Top cop throws 
caution to wind 
in case U-turn 


BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.johnpHPnorthants.co.uk 


ADRIAN Lee, the Chief Constable of 
Northamptonshire Police, has made 
an “exceptional" decision to reverse a 
caution handed by the force to former 
Cobblers striker Leon McKenzie. 

Mr McKenzie, 33, of Rectory Farm, 
Northampton, arrived at Northampton 
Crown Court on Monday to find out 
whether six counts of perverting the 
course of justice would be dropped or 
if he would be prosecuted. 

But there was high drama when Mr 
McKenzie’s lawyer had to ask Judge 
Richard Bray for 30 seconds to read a 
letter sent from the Chief Constable to 
his client. 

In it CC Lee said he had rescinded the 
initial caution as he felt that “it failed to 
address the gravity of the offence.” 

Mr McKenzie, who now plays for 
Kettering Town, is charged with the 
offences after allegedly getting a garage 
in London to provide false documents 
on six occasions between February 
2008 and December 2009 after him and 
his wife were allegedly snapped by 
speed cameras. 

In each case he claimed mechanics 


MAKING 
MOVES: 
Chief 
Constable 
Adrian Lee 



had been working on their car when the 
vehicle was allegedly caught speeding. 

Claire Howell, prosecuting, said: “The 
words of the caution the defendant was 
issued with are important because the 
caution was signed and it did not 
exclude the possibility of prosecution. 

“I understand the caution may not 
preclude a subsequent prosecution or 
a civil action. 


“The defendant was told when he 
signed the caution a prosecution may 
occur.” 

The decision by CC Lee caught Mr 
McKenzie’s barrister, Andrew McGee, 
unawares. 

He had just started his legal argument 
for his client when he had to ask Judge 
Bray for time to look at the letter sent 
by the Force’s top man. 

Mr McGee said: “For the police this 
was a formal procedure. 

“Northamptonshire Police followed 
its own procedure. 

“I have just been handed a letter by 
the Chief Constable to my client. 

“The Crown can’t change its mind 
because of no change in circumstances 
and no new evidence. 

“The Crown has consistently said the 
police officer made a mistake in issuing 
the caution but this was not an 
administrative error. 

“You (the Police) took an exercise 
which had been done on many occa¬ 
sions and went through the formal 
process of the caution. 

“This is a very familiar process and it 
can’t be described as a mistake. 

“The state must take responsibility

Are you interested in Adoption? 



Milton Keynes Council is looking for people who are able to offer a child with 
varying health and developmental needs a 'forever family'. On occasions these 
needs may be complex but support is available to help you manage them. 
There are many people from all backgrounds and experiences who make 
excellent adoptive parent(s) and we would welcome contact from you to 
discuss how you could give a child with such needs a safe and secure home. 
Children placed for adoption often require an adoptive family who live 
some distance from their parental home, so Milton Keynes Council also 
welcomes adoptive families from outside the area. 

Milton Keynes Council has an experienced team of social workers who will 
support and guide you through the adoption process. Once matched with 
a child(ren), we offer a good range of post adoption support services 
including financial assistance, training and access to therapeutic services. 

If you would like more information about this advertisement or

Patients’ data to 
join new system 

PATIENTS at 46 surgeries in North¬ 
ampton, Wellingborough and East 
Northamptonshire are next in line to 
be linked to the Summary Care 
Record. 

The system will ensure healthcare 
staff have quicker and easier access 
to important information about them 
in case they need emergency care. 

The Record is a secure electronic 
system of patients’ vital health 
information that can be shared 
between healthcare staff involved in 
someone’s care. 

The scheme will give doctors and 
nurses access to information about 
patients’ allergies, medications and 
any bad reactions to tablets. 

It is only accessible by staff directly 
involved in a patient’s treatment and 
then only with their consent. 

NHS Northamptonshire will be 
holding a number of sessions for 
those who have queries. 

These will take place on December 
15 from 10am to noon at Welling¬ 
borough Library, December 20 and 
January 7 from 9am to noon at 
Weston Favell Shopping Centre and 
February 6 from 2pm to 4pm at the 
Swansgate Shopping Centre in 
Wellingborough. An event is also 
planned for Rushden. 

For more information call 0300 123 
3020. 



Saints stars check out new look pub 


MEMBERS of Northampton Saints touched 
down at the revamped Whitehills Way Pub. 

The facility invited the club’s players to 
re-open the venue which has introduced a 
Flaming Grill menu, following a £300,000 
investment. 

Whitehills general manager, John 
O’Donnell, said: “It was an honour to 
welcome the rugby team down to our 


great new pub.” Following the investment 
by owners Spirit Pub Company, Whitehills 
has also created 30 new jobs. 

Mr O’Donnell added: “We had an over¬ 
whelming response to our recruitment 
campaign before we closed and the calibre 
of applicants has been extremely high. 

“We’ve been able to create a team of 
bright and enthusiastic individuals.” 


Police request to put 
land sell-off on hold 



BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.johnpHPnorthants.co.uk 


PLANS to sell land at 
Wootton Hall, the site of 
Northamptonshire Police’s 
headquarters, is expected to 
be put on hold. 

A report was presented to 
the Police Authority yesterday 
by the Chief Constable of the 
Force, Adrian Lee. 

In his report he outlined 
how there had been requests 
to purchase land within the 
Wootton Hall Estate. 

He asked the Police 
Authority to postpone 


decisions of the sale of any 
part of it until discussions 
with Northamptonshire 
County Council on the future 
of the estate had finished. 

In the report it states: “The 
possibility of agreeing to a 


sale has been explored by the 
Head of the Estates and facili¬ 
ties Department. 

“Although this is feasible, it 
is considered to be unwise 
for the Police Authority to 
agree to a sale of part of the 


Wootton Hall Estate whilst 
discussions with the county 
council are progressing. 

“Once the discussions are 
concluded it is anticipated 
the future of the Wootton 
Hall Estate will be deter¬ 
mined. 

“The authority is asked to 
approve the decision not to 
agree to the sale of any part 
of the Wootton Hall Estate 
until the discussions with 
Northamptonshire County 
Council on the future of the 
Wootton Hall Estate have 
been concluded and a deter¬ 
mination reached.” 


£20k reward to find body in field’ killer 


Damage after 
shop set alight 

ARSONISTS made a hole in a 
roof and climbed through it 
to set a business premises 
on fire on Barrack Road in 
Northampton. 

Police are appealing for 
information about the 
incident which occurred at 
about 3.20am on Sunday. 

The offender/s are 
believed to have set the 
shop alight after accessing 
it through the hole they 
made. 

Nothing was stolen 
although there was 
considerable smoke and fire 
damage. 

Witnesses, or anyone with 
information, should call 
Northamptonshire Police on 
101 . 


DETECTIVES investigating the 
murder of a kidnapped man 
whose remains were found in 
Northamptonshire, are offering 
a reward of up to £20,000. 

The Met Police are hoping 
information will lead to the 
identification, arrest and 
prosecution of the person/s 
responsible for the murder of 
Andrzej Kulesza. 

The body of the 27-year-old 
was found in a remote field 
near Rothersthorpe, close to 
Northampton, on April 25. 

A post-mortem examination 
was conducted but failed to 
establish a cause of death. 

Mr Kulesza had been 
reported missing to Tottenham 
Police after last being seen 
leaving his home in Stamford 
Hill at about 8am on 
September 18 last year. 

He went out to buy milk and 


bread at the local shop but 
never returned home. 

Detectives believe he was 
kidnapped. 

Shortly afterwards the 
victim’s girlfriend began 
receiving ransom demands. 

She paid a quantity of cash 
but Mr Kulesza was not 
returned and all telephone 
calls ended on September 21, 
2010. The girlfriend then 
alerted police. 

On April 25 a woman walking 
her dog found bones in the 
field near Rothersthorpe. 

DNA tests showed they 
belonged to Mr Kulesza and a 
murder investigation was 
launched by the Metropolitan 
Police Service’s Homicide and 
Serious Crime Command. 

An incident room is open at 
Hendon under Detective Chief 
Inspector Jacqueline Sebire. 


DCI Sebire said: “We hope the 
offer of this reward will 
encourage people to come 
forward with any piece of 
information - no matter how 
small - and help with our 
investigation. 

“It is still not clear how 
Andrzej was kidnapped - he 
would not usually have left the 
house at that time so perhaps 
he had arranged to meet 
someone who then 
orchestrated the abduction. 

“We believe he was killed 
shortly after the ransom 
demands stopped. 

“We would ask anyone with 
information or anyone who 
witnessed suspicious activity 
either in Stamford Hill that day 
or in the Rothersthorpe area to 
contact us as soon as 
possible.”

£35m project could bring 1,000 jobs to county 



A MULTI-million development 
which could create up to 1,000 
jobs in the county has been 
unveiled this week. 

Leading property developer 
Albion Land has announced plans 
for the £35 million project, known 
as Network 401, which will be on a 
25-acre site in Brackley between 
Northampton Road and the A43, a 
prominent location at the northern 
entrance to the South Northants 
market town. 

The proposal comprises about 
400,000 sq ft of mixed-use 
commercial buildings in the area 
known locally as Horsepower 
Highway. 

The company feels its scheme 
could resolve the question mark 
hanging over the future of 
Brackley Cottage Hospital, with a 
proposed 60,000 sq ft health care 
campus providing new doctors’ 
surgeries, care beds and dental 
surgery. 


Director of Albion Land, Simon 
Parsons, said: “Network 401 will be 
a high quality mixed-use 
development as befits the location 
and the growth plans for Brackley. 

“The development will reflect 
specific occupier requirements 
and we would expect the 
completed project to create up to 
1,000 jobs and substantial inward 
investment. 

“The A43 is referred to as the 
Horsepower Highway due to the 
proximity of Silverstone and the 
high number of motorsport related 
businesses in the area. The site is 
likely to be popular with 


motorsport occupiers and those 
organisations wanting bespoke 
facilities in a high-profile location. 

“We believe this site has a key 
role in contributing to the econo¬ 
mic development needs of the 
town and to broaden the range of 
facilities available to the local 
community. 

“We are hopeful that the scheme 
may also resolve the long-running 
proposal to replace Brackley 
Cottage Hospital and to provide a 
site for enlarged healthcare 
facilities which are required to 
meet the needs of the growing 
resident population.” 


Pair deny role in 
Devon drugs run 


BY JULIA SUTTON 

news@HPnorthants.co.uk 


TWO Vietnamese men from 
Northampton have denied being 
a part of a gang which ran a 
cannabis farm 200 miles away 
on an industrial estate in Devon, 
a court has heard. 

Nail technician Van Pham, 48, 
said he had gone for a Sunday 
outing with a friend and had no 
idea that drugs were involved. 

An 18-year-old who was in the 
hired Transit van with him has 
now changed his plea and admit¬ 
ted being part of a £165,000 
cannabis growing plot. 

The court was told Mr Pham 
was one of three Vietnamese men 
from Northampton who were 
arrested carrying more than two 
kilograms of recently harvested 
cannabis and £18,000 cash when 
the van was stopped in Somerset. 

Growing equipment was later 
found at the house where he lived 
in Norman Road, Northampton, 
which was identical to that in use 
in the factory in Exeter. 

A jury at Exeter Crown Court 
was told how police found the 328 
plants in a disused unit on the 
Marsh Barton estate last 
December after a tip off from the 


manager of a car hire shop who 
saw two men acting suspiciously. 

Mr Pham, Lenh Nguyen, 47, of 
Great Gull Close, Northampton 
and Omer al-Rawe, 31, of 
Brownlees, Exminster, all deny 
conspiracy to supply cannabis. 

Chung Tran, 18, also of Norman 
Road, Northampton, has now 
admitted the same charge. 

The prosecution say the gang 
hired the van in Northampton 
and the three men used it to go to 
Exeter to tend or harvest the 
plants at a hydroponic cannabis 
farm. 

They were seen in the van close 
to the unit, where al-Rawe was 
also spotted, but the drugs were 
only found later that evening. 

Mr Pham, through an inter¬ 
preter, insisted he knew nothing 
about either the cannabis grow¬ 
ing, the drugs in the van, or the 
cash. 

He said the growing equipment 
found at his home in 
Northampton belonged to a 17- 
year-old illegal immigrant who 
lived in a different room which he 
never visited. 

Mr Pham said: “Mr Nguyen 
contacted me and asked me to 
come with him. It was a Sunday 
and I was free so I agreed. 


“He didn’t tell me where we 
were going and I fell asleep in the 
van. 

“When I woke up after a few 
hours I was told we were waiting 
for the man with the sofa. I wait¬ 
ed five or ten minutes and then 
the police tapped on the window. 

“We all spent the night at the 
hotel and I woke up to find the 
others had left the room.” 

He said they had gone out but 
he rang them and they returned 
and all agreed to return home 
without picking up the sofa and 
were then arrested on the motor¬ 
way. 

Mr Pham added: “I went on the 
trip just to help a friend to collect 
a sofa. I had no knowledge of any 
cannabis production.” 

Mr Nguyen, a chip shop worker, 
denied knowing that the truck 
was being used for a drugs run 
when he hired it and drove the 
200 miles to Devon. 

British citizen Mr Nguyen, 
claims he was helping a friend by 
making the trip. 

He said: “I remember looking at 
a map and thinking it was a long 
way to go to pick up a sofa. I had 
no idea cannabis was involved at 
all.” 

The trial continues. 


Leon’s case 'exceptional’ 


■ Continued from page 1 

for decisions of this sort.” 
Judge Bray will assess all the 
evidence in the case and 
issue his judgement at a 
later date. 

In a statement, Inspector 
Elliot Foskett (staff officer to 
the Chief Constable), said: 
“A caution has no statutory 
basis, it is an administrative 
action exercised by the 
police and one which can 
be rescinded by the police. 

“The Chief Constable 
decided to rescind the cau¬ 
tion in this case as he felt 


that it failed to address the 
gravity of the offence and 
was in breach of both Home 
Office guidance and 
Director’s Guidance upon 
charging. 

“Both local and national 
records will reflect this deci¬ 
sion. 

“Mr McKenzie has been 
written to and informed of 
the Chief Constable’s deci¬ 
sion. 

“It is an exceptional cir¬ 
cumstance for a Chief 
Constable to authorise the 
removal of a caution.” 


Rail journeys stall as 
person’s hit by train 

TRAIN services to and from Northamp¬ 
ton were disrupted yesterday after a 
person was hit by a train in the Hanslope 
area. 

The first sign something was wrong 
came when the 12.33pm Crewe to 
London Euston service was delayed at 
Northampton. 

The knock-on effect of short notice 
alterations, cancellations and delays 
caused a number of trains to be delayed 
or not finish their journey. 

Emergency services were at the scene 
but yesterday evening there was no 
update on the person’s condition.

Listen to striking workers 


I AM very pleased to see that 
the strikes on November 30 in 
Northampton were a huge 
success for the trade union 
movement. 

The Conservative/Liberal 
Democrat Coalition should 
now start to listen seriously to 
what the trade unions are 
justifiably saying. 

For instance, their pensions 
should be linked to the RPI 
rather than the lower CPI. 

Our hard working public 
sector employees deserve a 
decent pension in old age. 

I think local Tory MPs have 
underestimated the depth of 
public feeling about the poor 
treatment of nurses, teachers 
and civil servants by 
Government ministers. 

Very few public sector work¬ 
ers are “gold plated” and are 
actually very modest. 

I hope the trade unions are 
successful in their campaign¬ 
ing.

Dark streets prove the Tories don’t care 

SO the clocks have gone back Democrats’ alternative budg- 


and the nights have drawn in. 

The impact of the 
Conservatives’ (Northants 
County Council) decision to 
switch off half the lights is 
being felt by many people as 
their daily routines are 
plunged into darkness. 

It’s so dark on many of our 
streets and alleys now and 
lots of people are telling me 
they are scared to go out. 

With the cut of £500,000 to 
Police Community Support 
Officers our streets are less 
safe, thanks to Northamp¬ 
tonshire Conservatives. 

It’s not just about crime and 
the fear of crime though. 
Driving home from work is 
now more difficult as roads 
are darker. 

Children walking home 
from school, particularly if 
they have been to after school 
clubs, are affected. 

Uneven pavements mean 
that elderly people are more 
likely to suffer a fall because 
it’s more difficult to see where 
they are going. 

All this because the 
Conservatives panicked last 
year and rushed through an 
extra £lm cut to lights 
because they couldn’t find a 
way to plug their £20m budg¬ 
et black hole. 

It’s a real shame that they 
didn’t listen to the Liberal 


Updates are needed 

WITH regards to LR Turner’s 
comment about the bus serv¬ 
ice and prices. 

While I agree with her 
points, this sort of letter is not 
constructive in developing 
Northampton and will only 
make the powers that be not 
bother developing the bus 
station. 

That bus station is an eye¬ 
sore and I am ashamed 
whenever people choose 
National Express or bus over 


Excess rubbish must 

IT is no surprise to me, nor I 
expect to many other 
residents of this town, to 
read about rats in certain 
areas. 

This is obviously due to the 
excess rubbish thrown in our 
streets regardless of when 
refuse collection is due. 

The main culprits in our 
area are the multi-occupan¬ 
cy residents who throw out 
anything into the street 
whether in bags or not. 

For example, my 
refuse/recycling collection 
date is Monday. 

By Tuesday a neighbour 
started putting out black 
sacks and by Saturday after¬ 
noon there were 21 bags 


et in February where they 
showed the money could be 
found. 

It’s a real shame they didn’t 
listen to the Liberal 
Democrats when we put a 
motion to switch them back 
on in the summer. 

Indeed, not only didn’t they 
listen but their senior coun¬ 
cillors actually insulted the 
members of the public who 
came to ask for the lights to 
be switched on. 

It’s a real shame that they 
didn’t listen to the Liberal 
Democrats when we put in a 
motion in September asking 
the Conservatives to look 
again at the appeals process 
and extend it until after 
October 30 when the clocks 
went back. Local people were 
denied the right to ask for 
lights to be put back on. 

Sadly for Northampton the 
Conservative led County 
Council isn’t even prepared to 
debate this issue any more. 
The Liberal Democrats tried 
to secure a debate about the 
impact specifically on safer 
routes to schools but this has 
been turned down. 

The Conservatives clearly 
just don’t care about the safe¬ 
ty of local people. 

Councillor Dennis Meredith 
Thorplands Division, 
Northamptonshire County Council 


to improve our town 

the train to come and visit. If 
we want Northampton to be a 
nice place to live then these 
sort of landmarks need to be 
updated. 

It looks and feels dated, it’s 
not a clever system with the 
bays, it’s unpleasant and cold 
to wait for a bus. 

Let’s not hamper another 
good initiative to improve the 
town centre.

leave rats licking lips 

across the front of their 
property. I should imagine 
every rat in the area was 
licking its lips. 

I thought the council was 
taking a tough line with both 
landlords and tenants of 
these properties but appar¬ 
ently budget cuts mean that 
it has to be more lenient. 

Why don’t the council issue 
wheelie bins to multi occu¬ 
pancy houses to help keep 
areas clean and the rat prob¬ 
lem may be reduced. 

Surely prevention is cheap¬ 
er than the cure. 

Thank you for giving me 
the chance to let off steam.

Cops arrest three 
suspects in raids 


BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.john(3HPnorthants.co.uk 


THREE more people in the coun¬ 
ty have been arrested by police 
following dawn raids as part of a 
crackdown tackling drugs 
supply. 

Nine warrants were executed on 
Tuesday as part of Operation 
Guardian - eight in 
Northamptonshire and one in 
Hampshire. 

The three arrested were: 

■ A 34-year-old man at an 
address in Northampton, on 
suspicion of drugs offences. He is 
in custody at Weston Favell police 
station 

■ A 28-year-old woman in 
Burton Latimer, in connection 
with money laundering offences. 
She is in custody at 
Wellingborough police station 

■ A 33-year-old man in 
Northampton, on suspicion of 
handling offences. He is in 
custody at Weston Favell police 
station 

Another man was arrested at an 
address in Southampton, 
Hampshire. 

Three vehicles, with an estimat¬ 
ed total value of £75,000, were 


also seized. A team of 50 uni¬ 
formed officers, together with 
CID and specialist support offi¬ 
cers, took part in the operation, 
which has been 

running covertly for the last year. 

Detective Inspector Mark 
Brayfield, of the serious and 
organised regional crime team, 
said: “This action is the culmina¬ 
tion of a long-term investigation 
into the supply of drugs in 
Northamptonshire and other 
counties. 

“We believe there are organised 
crime groups responsible for 
much of the supply of drugs in 
the county and we are deter¬ 
mined to root them out and cut 
off the wider criminality and anti¬ 
social behaviour associated with 
it. 

“We are working in conjunction 
with our regional colleagues and 
would appeal to any members of 
the public, concerned or affected 
by drugs in their community, to 
contact us.” 

Anyone with concerns should 
contact Northamptonshire Police 
on the non-emergency number 
101 . 

■ On Friday another eight 
search warrants were carried out 


as part of the same operation. 
Nine people were arrested for var¬ 
ious offences including posses¬ 
sion of drugs, possession of sec¬ 
tion 5 firearms, suspicion of bur¬ 
glary and suspicion of 
robbery. 

A quantity of drugs was seized 
as well as a can of CS spray. 

The high-impact day coincided 
with numerous activities by local 
teams including a street briefing 
in Blackthorn, a public consulta¬ 
tion event in South Northants as 
well as high visibility patrols. 

Officers identified 92 vehicles 
showing valuables and letters 
were later sent to the registered 
owners of the vehicles. 

Twelve disruption visits were 
carried out on people of interest 
by senior officers, with a further 
16 by Operation Guardian offi¬ 
cers. 

Officers also carried out an 
ANPR operation covering the east 
sector of Northampton 
Thorplands, Lumbertubs, Lings, 
Great Billing and Weston Favell. 

Twelve vehicles were stopped, 
including three which were recov¬ 
ered for being uninsured and 
having associated fixed penalty 
notices. 



‘Distinctive’ felines dumped 


TWO ten-month-old cats were 
found dumped near to the 
entrance of Sywell Country 
Park. 

The pair were discovered in a 
carrier by a concerned 
member of the public in 
Washbrook Lane, Ecton on the 
morning of Saturday, 
November 26. 

The cats are both female 
with distinctive colouring and 
following an examination by a 
vet it was found one of them 
is still producing milk so must 
have recently had kittens. 

RSPCA inspector Polly 
Underwood said: “These poor 
cats could have been left 
overnight and it is 


heartbreaking to think some¬ 
one appears to have just 
dumped them. 

“One of the cats is producing 
milk, but is not pregnant, 
which therefore means 
somewhere she has a litter of 
kittens which may have been 
ready to be weaned. 

“These cats are beautiful and 
quite unusual in their 
colouring so someone 
somewhere must know who 
they belong to. 

“I would urge anyone who 
may recognise these cats, or if 
they have any information as 
to who owns them to contact 
the RSPCA cruelty line on 
0300 1234 999.”

There’s 

mums 


hope on the 
needing help 


A SPECIAL scheme is giving hope to teenage 
girls who find themselves pregnant and with 
nowhere to go. LAWRENCE JOHN found out 
more about New Horizons House and how it is 
giving these youngsters a chance for the future 


IN the film It’s a Wonderful Life, 
George Bailey wishes he had 
never been born and gets the 
chance to see what would have 
happened if this came true. 

Clarence, his guardian angel, 
shows him he in fact has a 
wonderful life and should not 
wish this when so many people 
rely on him. 

In one sense, this is what New 
Horizons House in Spencer, 
Northampton, does for a number 
of pregnant teenage girls. 

Staff show them however bleak 
they think it is now - being so 
young and finding themselves 
pregnant - there is hope on the 
horizon. 

There is a chance for them, if 
they want it, to get help to find a 
better life. 

New Horizons House is owned 
by Nottingham Housing 
Association and supported by 
Bromford Support. 

Support worker Geri Norris 
explained about the work carried 
out by the home and how it helps 


these teens. There are ten flats for 
young parents aged 16 to 24 years 
old and they can stay for up to 
two years. 

The girls who end up at the 
house normally get referred to 
the team by Social Services, Sure 
Start or a children’s centre. 

Each girl who gets to stay in one 
of the flats provided has to adhere 
to the rules. 

They have their own rooms and 
staff do not intrude into them 
unless necessary. 

However, there is a policy of 
three strikes and you’re out so if 
the rules are broken, they have to 
leave. 


Ms Norris said: “These are girls 
who have not got anywhere else 
to go. 

“This is a stepping stone before 
they move on. 

“They can stay with us for two 
years and this gives them a better 
opportunity for a future. 

“Some of them do not have a 
family and if they do then it might 
not be the best relationship. 

“A lot of them are pregnant and 
sleeping on a friend’s sofa. 

“Some of them have never lived 
on their own and do not know 
how to cook or manage their 
money. 

“We can help them get into 
education and show them what 
they can do. 

“We are able to give them the 
skills to learn how to cope in the 
community.” 

Before any of the girls can come 
to the house, there is an interview 


These are girls who have not got anywhere else 
to go. This is a stepping stone before they move on. 
They can stay with us for two years and this gives 
them a better opportunity for a future

horizon for teenaae 



and a set of questions is asked as 
part of an assessment. 

However, there is a very long 
waiting list to get into New 
Horizons House as there is very 
little social housing for the girls to 
move into. 

There is the option of renting 
accommodation privately but a 
lot of landlords do not accept 
housing benefit. 

One of the girls who has bene¬ 


fited from this Northampton- 
based scheme is Chelsea. 

She said: “I have been here eight 
months and have achieved a lot 
to help me move on. 

“My housing officer at the 
borough council referred me and 
I came here for an interview. 

“I couldn’t stay with my mum as 
there were only two bedrooms 
and not enough room. 

“I would have loved to have 


lived at home. I am looking now 
and I hope to get somewhere of 
my own.” 

Ms Norris said when the girls 
arrive they have very little self 
confidence. 

But gradually over time, for 
many of them, starts to grow and 
in her words they ‘blossom’. 

She added: “They will have our 
support as long as they need it, 
even after they have left.”

Non-999 callouts 
fill emergency line 


BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.johnpHPnorthants.co.uk 

FIGURES released by East 
Midlands Ambulance Service 
show 72 per cent of all the calls it 
received last year were for 
non-emergencies. 

The emergency service (EMAS) 
is calling on people to be life 
savers and not time-wasters by 
phoning for an ambulance when 
not necessary. 

Last year EMAS responded to 
723,519 emergency 999 calls and 
of those, 205,248 were for life 
threatening conditions. 

Director of Operations for 
EMAS, Peter Ripley, said: 
“Genuine life threatening calls 
only make up around 28 per cent 
of our work and we need the 
public to help us concentrate on 


and have the resources available 
to respond to real emergencies. 

“If you dial 999 for a problem 
which is not a genuine emer¬ 
gency, then you could be delaying 
the response to someone who is 
suffering from a life threatening 
condition. 

“In extreme cases, this could 
mean you put someone else’s life 
at risk - maybe even a loved one 
who lives in a different part of 
town. 

“Real life threatening emergen¬ 
cies include choking, chest pain, 
difficulty in breathing, drowning, 
fitting or concussion, serious 
blood loss, severe burns or 
allergic reactions. 

“Some people incorrectly think 
if they arrive at A&E in an ambu¬ 
lance they will be seen more 
quickly than if they arrived by car, 


taxi or public transport. Our high¬ 
ly trained and qualified call tak¬ 
ers, based in our Emergency 
Operations Centres, receive on 
average a new 999 call every 45 
seconds. They take details from 
the caller and provide further 
advice over the phone. 

“If an emergency response is 
required it is dispatched while the

£370k plan to boost size and facilities of village school 


PLANS to increase the size of a 
primary school will be discussed 
next week. 

Northamptonshire County 
Council's cabinet will be asked 
on Tuesday to award a contract 
for the extension works at lohn 
Hellins Primary School in 
Potterspury. Housing develop¬ 


ments in the area mean the 
school will have an additional 
five pupils in each year group, 
taking the total from 105 to 140 
students. 

Already the school has 
increased its reception intake by 
making temporary provision for 
a fifth class. 


The £370,000 building project 
will provide a new classroom, 
outdoor covered play area, an 
extra group room and improved 
toilets. 

It will be funded through 
Section 106 contributions, the 
council's capital programme as 
well as £25,000 from the school.

A step back into 
history of images 

MEMORIES of Northampton will be 
stirred thanks to the latest edition of 
a nostalgia calendar. 

Now in its 20th year, the latest 
edition of the Old Northampton 
Pictorial Engagements Calendar 2012, 
is now on sale. 

The man responsible for the popular 
annual edition is Phil Eldridge who 
hand selects the pictures for every 
month. 

Mr Eldridge said: “The pictures we 
use are ones we have not used 
before. They are ones I like and we 
hope it captures and reflects the 
mood and theme of Northampton in 
bygone years.” 

The Old Northampton Calendar is 
£4.99 including board envelope and is 
available online at www.old- 
northampton.co.uk from WH Smith 
and selected post offices, news¬ 
agents, card shops and book stores. 


‘High risk’ young 
drinkers boozing 
on double levels 


BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.johnpHPnorthants.co.uk 

PEOPLE aged between 18 
and 25 years old in the 
county are drinking 
double the recommended 
amount of alcohol every 
day. 

A recent NHS 
Northamptonshire survey 
held in Northampton’s 
pubs and clubs during 
Alcohol Awareness Week 
revealed those deemed to 
be in the high risk category 
are drinking eight units a 
day. 

The recommended rate 
for men is three to four 
units a day and for women 
it is two to three. 

Those at high risk are 
therefore drinking double 
the recommended daily 
amount. This would 
equate to nearly a bottle of 
wine (ten units) a day or 
four pints of beer (half a 
pint is one unit). 

Although the figures 
show a nine per cent 
reduction in the number of 


young people drinking in 
the highest risk category 
compared to last year, 
health workers are keen to 
get the responsible drink¬ 
ing message across. 

Alcohol can play a role in 
causing many medical 
conditions some of which 
include strokes, cancer of 
the mouth, pharynx and 
larynx, breast cancer, liver 
cirrhosis and high blood 
pressure. 

The same survey also 
showed a six per cent 
increase in the category of 
low risk young drinkers. 

NHS Northamptonshire 
health improvement 
co-ordinator Dawn Wintle 
said: “Although these 
results show an improve¬ 
ment on last year, work still 
needs to continue to 
inform people of the risks 
to health from drinking 
above the recommended 
levels. 

“Peer pressure plays a big 
part in persuading young 
people to drink too much. 

“But being part of the 


crowd is much more fun 
when your brain isn’t 
befuddled with booze.” 

NHS Northamptonshire 
is actively campaigning 
now, throughout the party 
season, and for the next six 
months, with this age 
group who go out and 
drink too much. 

Public health manager 
Pam Berry said: “We want 
young people to drink 
sensibly. 

“If they are drinking we 
do not want them to drink 
more but to be in control 
of what they are doing. 

“Once people start drink¬ 
ing too much they are not 
in control of their actions. 

“They can become 
violent or become vulnera¬ 
ble to attack.” 

Visit www.likealcohol. 
com for a test on how 
much you drink and see 
details about the risks. 

Head of social marketing 
at NHS Northamptonshire, 
Heidi King, added: “Our 
message is enjoy yourself 
but know your limit.”

Event will boost fund 
for tot who lost mum 


BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.johnpHPnorthants.co.uk 

FAMILY and friends in 
Northampton are rally¬ 
ing together to help 
raise money for a young 
boy who has been left 
without his mum after 
she died in a car 
accident in August. 

Donna Morgan, 22, of 
Brookside Meadows and 
Faye McKoy, 24, of 
Tenby Road, Spencer, 
were killed when the 
vehicle they were travel¬ 
ling in crashed on the 
northbound slip road at 
junction 15a of the Ml. 

Mrs Morgan was a 
former student of The 
Duston School, Thomas 
Becket School and 
Northampton College. 

She had a son, 
Du’reece, who was 19 
months old when she 
died. The fundraising 
evening is scheduled to 


take place on fanuary 
21, which is coinciden¬ 
tally the toddler’s 
second birthday. 

One of the organisers, 
Kevin Fardon, said: 
“Basically it came from 
an idea which came 
from someone at the 
Kingsley Park Working 
Men’s Club. I used to do 
a lot of fundraising for 


Children in Need and so 
I was asked to help out 
and started organising 
the entertainment and 
helping with ticket sales. 

“Donna used to work 
behind the bar at the 
club for three to four 
years. 

“People at the club 
were devastated. 

“A few of the girls who 


work at the club used to 
live in the same area. I 
spoke to one of them 
this week and she is still 
upset by what hap¬ 
pened. She is still trying 
to come to terms with it. 

“I could not believe it 
when it happened as I 
had only spoken to her 
the Wednesday before. 

“This is being done as 
a tribute to Donna and 
to put some money in 
Du’reece’s bank account 
for the future.” 

Mr Fardon said the club 
had given him the use of 
the concert room for free 
and The Tornadoes, who 
are providing the enter¬ 
tainment, will also not be 
taking payment. 

There will also be a 
disco and raffle. 

Tickets cost £5 each 
and for more informa¬ 
tion, or to donate to the 
fund, call Mr Fardon on

£113,000 museum 
revamp underway 


BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.johnpHPnorthants.co.uk 

WORK to modernise 
Northampton Museum and Art 
Gallery has started. 

Renaissance funding of 
£113,000 from the Museums, 
Libraries and Archives Council, 
along with money from 
Northampton Borough Council’s 
capital fund, is being used to pay 
for the revamp which is due to be 
completed by the end of March 
next year. 

The transformation will include 
new flooring, improved lighting 
and redecoration throughout. 

Changes will also focus on 
opening up the main entrance, 
re-fitting the ground floor to 
include a welcoming shoe lounge 
offering a range of refreshments, 
a re-fitted shop with a greater 
array of gifts and memorabilia 
and improved, more flexible 
exhibition displays. 

Northampton Borough Council 
cabinet member for museums, 
Councillor Brandon Eldred, said: 
“Museums are operating in an 
increasingly competitive market 
and we are rising to the challenge 
to give visitors the quality of 
services they rightly expect. 

“Northampton is home to the 
nation’s finest collection of shoes 



which has been awarded desig¬ 
nated status in recognition of its 
national and international 
importance. 

“This funding will mean that we 
can develop our museum as a 
cultural space that is a fitting 
showcase for the collection.” 

The museum is staying open 


throughout the modernisation 
works but visitors are advised 
that there may be some disrup¬ 
tion although the aim is to keep 
this to a minimum. 

Plans showing how the 
museum will look once the work 
is complete are currently on dis¬ 
play inside the venue.

Age limit of cabs 
put under scrutiny 


BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.johnpHPnorthants.co.uk 


A CONSULTATION has kicked off 
to find out whether residents 
and businesses believe there 
should be an age limit for taxis. 

Around half of the country’s 
local authorities have such a 
restriction but in Northampton 
the existing policy only stipulates 
that Hackney Carriages (black 
cabs) must be less than three 
years old when licensed for the 
first time but after that there is no 
upper age limit. 

No rules apply for Private Hire 
Vehicles. 

Northampton Borough 

Council’s licensing committee 


met at the end of September and 
agreed to consult with those 
working in the taxi industry and 
members of the public about 
reviewing its policy on age limits 
for taxis. 

As the licensing authority, the 
borough council is responsible 
for ensuring vehicles are up to 
standard. 

As well as consulting on whether 
to adopt an age policy common to 
all cabs, the authority will also be 
asking for views on whether to 
increase the minimum engine 
capacity of Private Hire Vehicles 
from 1400cc to 1600cc and if 
certain cars should be exempt. 

Chair of the council’s licensing 
committee, Councillor Chris¬ 


topher Malpas, said: “As the 
licensing authority we must 
ensure that licensed vehicles are 
as safe, reliable and comfortable 
as possible. 

“Public safety is our primary 
concern and we are keen to hear 
your views on this important 
consultation.” 

Questionnaires are available 
online by visiting 

www.northampton.gov.uk/taxi 
consultation or for a paper copy 
call the authority’s community 
safety team on 01604 838968. 

The consultation started on 
Monday and runs until noon on 
February 29. The findings will be 
fed back to the committee in May 
next year to make a decision. 


New taxi site to get people home safely 


A NEW Hackney Carriage rank 
opens on The Drapery tomorrow 
with the aim of cutting queues at 
the All Saints’ Church site. 

The rank will accommodate 12 
vehicles and will be available at 
the top end of The Drapery, 
outside Debenhams, every night 
between 11pm and 5am. 

The initiative is supported by 


the Northampton Community 
Safety Partnership, which is 
made up of local agencies 
including Northampton Borough 
Council, Northamptonshire 
County Council and the police. 

Borough council cabinet 
member for community safety, 
Councillor David Mackintosh, 
said: “I am keen to see the new 


rank up and running in time for 
the festive season which will 
inevitably see more people 
enjoying an evening out in the 
town centre. 

“Ensuring people get home 
safely at the end of a night out 
has to be a priority for us all.” 

The new signs are being paid 
for by the county council.

BY LAWRENCE JOHN 

lawrence.john@HPnorthants.co.uk 

A FORTY-SIX-YEAR-OLD 
man from Northampton 
is due in court next week, 
charged with four counts 
of indecent exposure 
close to a supermarket. 

Between November 4

reports of these four 
incidents on the grounds 
of Tesco Mereway in 


Clannell Road, Northam¬ 
pton. 

The incidents all 
occurred during the night,

clothes patrols in the area, 
a man was arrested during 
the early hours of last 
Saturday morning. 

He was caught in a state 
of undress in Overslade 


Close, following a foot 
chase having been 
disturbed committing an 
offence. 

The man is due to 
appear at Northampton

further victims who may 
have been subjected to 
other incidents but have

TalkingPoint ^ 


This week’s guest columnist is 
leader of the Liberal 
Democrats at 
Northamptonshire County 
Council Cllr Brendan Glynane 


Party’s helped to 
make difference 


W hat have the Liberal 

Democrats ever done for 
us? 

The Chancellor’s autumn 
statement cast a pretty gloomy 
picture. The economic crisis 
caused by the banks, who were 
allowed to get away with just 
about anything under Labour, has 
been worsened by the Eurozone 
crisis, caused by governments not 
being able to meet their debts. 

It’s clear that the deficit 
reduction plan, however difficult it 
is to swallow, has won the 
confidence of the markets. 

Despite massive debts the UK is 
not in the same mess as Greece, 
Italy, Spain, Ireland or Portugal. But 
we have a new challenge to meet 
- making sure the economy is 
growing and unemployment goes 
down. 

In amongst the gloomy forecasts 
and list of depressing numbers, 
there were several 
announcements aimed at kick- 
starting the economy. 

The Youth Contract, a £1 billion 
fund to get young people into 
work, was announced. 

That will benefit 3,830 
youngsters in Northamptonshire. 

Youth unemployment has been 
rising for a decade and in these 
tough times it is crucial that we 
make sure a generation is not left 
behind. 

Another big new idea was the 
£30b infrastructure boost - new 
homes, roads and railways, paid for 
in part by investment from 
pension funds. 

In our county that means the A14 
at Kettering and the Corby link 


road get the go-ahead. The regional 
growth fund, a pot of money to 
boost the economy and jobs 
outside London, has been upped 
by £lb. 

Poorer families will also get a 
boost thanks to 15 hours free 
childcare provision for all two year 
olds from disadvantaged 
backgrounds. 

That will benefit 1,700 children 
here in Northamptonshire. 

Meanwhile the banks are being 
made to pay more as the banking 
levy has been increased. 

One thing all these welcome 
policies have in common - they 
are all Liberal Democrat ideas. 

In fact, many of the Coalition 
Government’s best policies have 
been Liberal Democrat inspired. 

Take for example the income tax 
threshold rise - taking millions out 
of tax altogether and giving 
millions more families a tax cut. 

That was straight from the cover 
of the Liberal Democrat manifesto. 

As too was the pupil premium - 
more money for our schools, spent 
on the poorest pupils to give 
everyone a fair start in life - £2.5b 
nationally by 2015 and £6.5 million 
this year for Northamptonshire’s 
schools. 


The triple lock on pensions and 
the earnings link restored, broken 
by the last Labour government if 
you remember [which gave us the 
insulting 75p a week rise in 
pensions]. Liberal Democrat action 
has given the biggest ever cash 
rise in pensions this coming year. 

The list goes on - Trident 
delayed, the intrusive and 
expensive ID card system 
scrapped. 

Environmental action like the £3b 
green investment bank to boost 
new technology and cut carbon 
emissions and the Green Deal 
offering home-owners insulation 
to keep bills down. 

It is unnatural for many Liberal 
Democrats to share power with 
the Conservatives. 

But without the Lib Dems 
fighting in Government the Tories 
would have dismantled our health 
services and scrapped our human 
rights. 

When I joined the Liberal 
Democrats I did so because I 
wanted to see a fairer, freer, 
greener Britain. 

Behind all the gloom, that is what 
the Liberal Democrats are working 
hard in Coalition Government to 
achieve.

PSALMS FROM THE 
HORSE’S MOUTH 

Black Bottom Club, Northampton 

Tuesday, December 13 at 8pm 

CONTINUING Royal & 
Derngate’s series of 
storytelling events for adults, 
Hugh Lupton returns to 
Northampton with his 
intriguing show, Psalms from 
the Horse’s Mouth. 

In this performance Lupton 
turns his lyrical eye towards 
the magical connection 
between man and horse. 

Intertwining Navajo 
mythology, Celtic 
wondertales and slave 
ballads, this programme has 
at its heart The Horses - 


Lupton’s stunning narrative 
poem. 

In praise of the life of a 
horseman’s daughter, this is 
poetic storytelling at its very 
best. 

Lupton has 30 years of 
storytelling experience and 
has toured internationally. 

He has previously been seen 
at Royal & Derngate perform¬ 
ing On Common Ground, an 
evening of words and music 
that celebrates the life and 
times of legendary Northam¬ 
ptonshire poet John Clare, 
.which was presented as part 
of the theatre’s Hometown 
season. 

Tickets for this show, are 
£8.50. To book call 01604

Have you ever wondered wheth¬ 
er Adele is tempted to sing in 
her speaking voice? 

If you’ve never heard her talk, 
it’s very different. 

We thought the same thing 
when we caught up with last 
year’s X Factor runner up 
Rebecca Ferguson as she has 
her fabulous debut album out 
in time for Christmas called 
Heaven. 

The first single is called 
Nothing’s Real But Love. 

She has an incredible singing 
voice but have you heard her 
speak? Of course you have and 
she’s a broad ‘Scouse’. 

So we asked her whether she’d 
ever sing in her speaking voice. 
Laughing, Rebecca said: “It 


doesn’t come out like that, I 
don’t know why it doesn’t come 
out like that but I’m thankful 
for it.” 

We wanted to know whether 
she carried a notebook around 
in case she’s inspired when 
she’s out and about but she’s 
much more savvy: “I see things 
and I’ll remember it but mainly 
with voice notes on my iPhone. 
In fact most of the album was 
recorded like that and I’d take it 
into the studio and we’d start 
from there.” 

She’s not got the new iPhone 
that talks back despite wanting 
one and possibly asking Santa. 

After we heard Adele voted for 
her 80 times, Rebecca told us 
the star had been “really lovely 


Breakfast club 

-with Heart FM’s 
Stuart and Natalie 


through the whole thing.” Luck¬ 
ily, she didn’t send her the 
phone bill though. 

Rebecca told us: “I have 
bumped into people and they 
are like ‘I spent £400 texting’ 
and I’m like ok, not really sure 
what to do now.” 

Stu suggested offering a 
couple of tickets to her next gig. 
Do listen to the full interview 
on our blog, as Natalie is trying 
very hard to improve her 
accents and Rebecca 
humoured her to try to help 
and even agreed Natalie had 
improved. 

Stuart and Natalie present

Friday 6am-1 Oam on Heart

Sophie spices up the day 


EVENTS 

AWARD-winning cookery 
writer Sophie Grigson was 
in town this week, bringing 
some much needed 
warmth while promoting 
her latest book, Spices. 

Grigson, who used to live 
near Daventry and 
maintains strong links with 
the county through her 
role as a judge in the 
annual Carlsberg UK 


Northamptonshire Food & 
Drink Awards, visited 
Northampton yesterday. 

She cooked some of the 
recipes from her book 
with the help of the 
competition’s reigning 
‘Curry Chef of the Year’ 
Durga Sapkota, in the 
kitchens of his restaurant 
Mem-Saab on Wellin¬ 
gborough Road. Grigson 
also completed a book 
signing at Waterstones. 



MUSIC 

NORTHAMPTON-based dubstep producers 
Goldlock & Octagon have hit the UK club 
charts with their debut single 
Unstoppable. 

The track, featuring Daventry singer 
Rose X, has been played up and down the 
country on specialist dance radio shows 
and has become a huge hit in the clubs. 
The music video was shot and edited by 
local video whiz Adam Fitch. 

People can catch the outfit playing at 
Atmosphere Club, Northampton tomorrow. 


WHAT’S ON 

MEET THE AUTHOR _ 

Towcester Library, Richmond Road 

Tuesday, December 13 from 7pm to 8.30pm 

COUNTY-based writer Louise Gibney has just 
published her debut novel Girl Meets Boys 
about online dating. 

At the event, guests can hear extracts from 
the book, meet the author and find out more 
about the novel. There will also be wine and 
nibbles. Entry is £3. The tale is a romantic 
comedy set in Northampton and Milton Keynes. 


This silly escapade 
will be hard to beat 


REVIEW 

ALICE IN WONDERLAND 

Royal & Derngate 

Until Sunday, January 8 

IT may not much resem¬ 
ble the story from the 
original book, but Fd 
stake a large amount of 
money that Lewis Carroll 
would be cheering this 
version of his children’s 
classic as loudly as any of 
the Royal theatre audi¬ 
ence. 

The reason is simple: 
Phil Porter’s smart, witty 
and extremely silly adap¬ 
tation pays appropriate 
and affectionate tribute to 
the source material by 
capturing exactly the 
essence of its zaniness 
and illogicality, while 
simultaneously creating a 
piece of theatre that is 
fast, hugely entertaining 
and utterly hilarious. 

He’s considerably aided 
in this objective by the 
two co-directors, Dani 
Parr and Laurie Sansom, 
in whose hands this won¬ 
derful slice of nonsense is 
endlessly inventive and 
tear-inducingly funny - 
and that applies as much 
for the grown-ups as for 
the children. 



So often Christmas 
shows claim to work on 
two levels, desperate to 
appeal to cynical adults 
alongside their offspring. 
With this production, the 
play hits both targets in 
one masterful stroke, and 
they lap it up. 

There’s a multi-talented 
cast of nine, an extraordi¬ 
nary on-stage band that 
somehow makes three 
musicians sound like a 
full orchestra, and some 
stunning effects and 
designs from Sara Perks 
and her team that are 
constantly surprising and 
effective. 

Mark McGee holds pro¬ 
ceedings together mag¬ 
nificently as a smooth 
Mad Hatter with a sugges¬ 


tion of Johnny Depp, pre¬ 
senting a royal variety 
performance for Liza 
Sadovy’s joyously obnox¬ 
ious Queen of Hearts. 

Alice herself becomes 
unwillingly inveigled into 
the performance and has 
to shed her “square” atti¬ 
tude by learning the 
important difference 
between silly and stupid 
before she’s allowed to 
return to the real world. 

It’s a concept that works 
brilliantly, and begins 
from the moment you 
enter the foyer, which has 
been transformed into 
the White Rabbit’s rabbit- 
hole and gets you in the 
mood long before cur- 
tain-up. 

In fairness, it needs a lit¬ 
tle time to warm up and 
bed in properly, but this is 
a truly magical show that 
takes the recent 
Christmas successes of 
the Royal and ratchets 
them up several levels. 

It’s a pretty safe predic¬ 
tion to suggest that you’ll 
have to go an awfully long 
way to find a production 
that’s got more heart, 
more fun and more sheer 
silliness to put you in the 
festive spirit. 

MICHAEL DAVIES 


Am-dram group’s musical dilemma 


APPEAL 

THE Saint Albans Charity 
Players of Northampton 
are on the lookout for a 
helping hand. 

The amateur dramatics 
group raise money from 
their productions for local 
charities. 

Their next offering will 
be a Little Red Riding 
Hood pantomime but 


their musicians have 
pulled out. 

They are now sending 
out a plea to any budding 
and willing musicians 
who could help. 

The group are looking 
for a bass player, one or 
two saxophonists, a key¬ 
board player, a drummer 
and two or three backing 
singers. 

Volunteers will need to 


rehearse every Monday 
evening up to the new 
year and then Mondays 
and Wednesdays during 
next month. 

You would then have to 
commit to playing from 
January 22 to 28 which 
will include the full dress 
rehearsal and the shows.

Get your 
brand 
closer to 
people’s 

ives 

No other medium is as close to people’s hearts as 
Regional Press. Consumers consider it an integral 
part of their community. 

The effectiveness of regional press advertising in 
driving sales comes down to the simple fact that 
people prefer to do most of their spending close to 
where they live. 

Consumers’ Choice V, a national consumer survey by 
TNS Media, found that regional press advertising is 
the most frequently acted upon, with 61% of people 
responding to it f . 

No wonder brands enjoy a closer relationship with 
consumers when advertised in this, the most trusted 
and effective medium of all.

Get your 
brand 
closer to 
people’s 

lives 

No other medium is as close to people’s hearts as 
Regional Press. Consumers consider it an integral 
part of their community. 

The effectiveness of regional press advertising in 
driving sales comes down to the simple fact that 
people prefer to do most of their spending close to 
where they live. 

Consumers’ Choice V, a national consumer survey by 
TNS Media, found that regional press advertising is 
the most frequently acted upon, with 61% of people 
responding to it*. 

No wonder brands enjoy a closer relationship with 
consumers when advertised in this, the most trusted 
and effective medium of all.

Cross country 
men storm to 
massive victory 

ATHLETICS 

NORTHAMPTON’S Men’s team totally 
dominated the second Birmingham 
League Cross Country Division Two 
fixture of the season at Abington Park 
- running out winners by over 100 
points on Saturday. 

The team score of 93 points was 
only ten short of their best ever tally 
and put them 135 points clear at the 
top of the table ahead of the next 
meeting in Coventry on January 14 
next year. 

Top man for the club was 18-year-old 
Rory Grant who stormed round the 
four-lap 10k course to finish in a 
superb third place with a time of 
35mins llsecs, making him only the 
third Northampton-based athlete to 
clinch a top three berth in this 
division. 

Chasing him hard all the way was 
Chris Lamb who is in the form of his 
life and crossed the line in fifth (35m 
28s) to improve by five places from 
the previous race and join five other 
runners from the club that have made 
the top five. 

Stuart Nelson also advanced one 
place from the first race to finish in 
seventh with 35m 41s and the trio 
were backed up by three athletes who 
made the top 30. 

Chris Perez finished 24th in 37m 18s, 
junior man Luke Robinson was timed 
at 37m 37s for 26th and completing 
the scoring six was veteran Greg 
Spellman with a two-place 
improvement from last time in 28th 
on 37m 47s. 

Rugby and Northampton had their 
biggest turnout for almost six years 
with 25 athletes competing, including 
some Junior athletes making their 
debut. 

This helped the B team to win by 
over 200 points and their total of 318 
would have put them seventh among 
the A teams. 

Leading the way was Conor Hills and 
the 17-year-old gave a good account of 
himself in his first Senior race to finish 
in 36th place with 38m 18s and he 
was followed by his junior team mate 
Robert Male in 48th with 38m 43s. 

Team manager Vince Carroll finished 
in 53rd spot on 38m 53s and ten 
seconds behind was Liam Ratcliffe in 
56th. 

Ben Malia was timed at 39m 23s in 
62nd and just three seconds and one 
place behind was veteran Gary 
Wallace, closing off the victorious 
team. 

Jo Pulsford once again flew the flag 
for the R N Ladies to bring her 
unbeaten run to six races in this 
League. 

She crossed the line in 29th place 
with a time of 28m 27s and in doing so 
helped the team to finish in 11th 
position. 

Veteran Alison Cooper came home 
next with 29m 21s for 45th spot and 
Angela Copson - recent winner of the 
W60 Home Countries International for 
the fourth time - recorded 29m 49s in 
57th place. 

Daisy Melville joined Cooper and 
Copson in a very close Masters team 
competition when she finished 61st in 
30m 07s. The R N team finished in 
third place with only four points 
covering the top three. 

The venue for the ladies third fixture 
of the season will be at Baggeridge 
Park, near Dudley on Saturday, 

January 14 


Manoa’s up for the cup 



BY MARC BAZELEY 

marc.bazeleyPHPnorthants.co.uk 


SAMU Manoa has been 
literally living the dream so 
far for Northampton Saints 
in the Heineken Cup, and is 
set to get another shot this 
weekend against Castres 
Olympique. 

Phil Dowson’s suspension 
and Calum Clark’s injury, as 
well as doubts over Roger 
Wilson’s fitness, have left 
the club facing some 
changes in the back row. 

That is likely to see Manoa 
(pictured in action) handed 
his first start in Europe this 
year, having featured as a 
replacement in the first two 
Pool One matches against 
Munster and the Scarlets. 

Defeats in both of those 
games have left last season’s 
Heineken Cup runners-up 
facing the very real prospect 
of not reaching the knock¬ 
out stages, making a win in 
France on Saturday a must. 

But while results have not 
gone in the Saints’ favour so 
far, American Manoa is still 
enjoying taking on the 
Continent’s top clubs - par¬ 
ticularly the trip to 
Thomond Park. 

“I used to watch Munster 
when I was younger, espe¬ 
cially watching Doug 
Howlett,” he explained. 

“I was a big fan of him, 
and then playing on the 
same field against him - I 
never thought in my life 
that I would do that or play 
against Munster. 

“I was hoping he would 
come my way, but unfortu¬ 
nately he slipped on the 
inside of me a couple of 
times. 

“Everybody back home 
was watching that game so 
when I had a chance to get 
on the field I just had to do 
what I had to do. 


“I had to bring my game to 
the table and see if I could 
help the squad out. 

“It’s a good competition 
and the Heineken Cup is big 
for me coming from where I 
played back home. 

“It’s a big step for me and 
the competition is up there 
- you have got to bring your 
A game when you play in 
the Heineken Cup." 

Manoa has been used 
mostly as a replacement for 
Northampton this season 
since joining from 
American Super League 
side San Francisco Golden 
Gate. 

And he admits that he is 
still learning various things 
about playing at the highest 
level, particularly with 
regards to the defensive 
side of his game. 

Manoa said: “I’ve picked 
up a lot of small stuff that I 
didn’t know about playing 
at home. I try to work on my 
defence. 

“It’s things like not com¬ 


mitting so early and let the 
play fold out, not just when 
the ball goes from the 
scrum half to the fly half 
and going straight for the fly 
half. 

“I’ve just got to watch for 
inside runners or cutbacks 
like that. 

“Before as soon as the ball 
came from the scrum half I 
was flying straight for the fly 
half trying to kill him and 
not even worrying about 
anyone on the inside. 

“It’s small stuff like that 
which helps a lot and I’m 
still learning.” 

Anyone who has seen the 
towering back row play will 
know that he thrives on the 
physical side of the game, 
and Manoa particularly 
enjoyed last Saturday’s 
Aviva Premiership derby 
clash with Leicester Tigers. 

The match will be as much 
remembered for the brawl 
in the first half that resulted 
in Alesana Tuilagi and Tom 
Wood being sent off as for 


the thrilling spectacle that 
saw Leicester snatch a 30- 
25 win late on. “I wouldn't 
call it a brawl, it was more 
like pushing and shoving,” 
says the laid back Manoa 
though, adding: “This is 
rugby, man.” 

As for the game itself, 
Manoa felt it was one of his 
best in a Northampton shirt 
and is aiming for a similar 
performance when he takes 
on French outfit Castres. 

He said: “The physicality 
was up there, the game was 
intense and the speed of the 
game was so quick. It was 
probably one of my best 
defensive games. 

“I’ve got to compete at the 
breakdown because Castres 
have got a big pack, so we’ve 
got to break them down. 

“We’ve got to pick up the 
game because I don’t think 
they’re as fit as us, so we’ve 
got to tire them out. 

“I'm looking forward to it 
and I'm ready, so I'll just 
take it as it is.” 


Boss sees 
no reason 
why Saints 
will miss out 

Continued from back page 

weeks, but they are still 
a very good team and 
we’re going to have our 
work cut out to get a 
win on Saturday. 

“They’re a big, lumpy 
side so you’ve got to 
compete with them in 
the scrum, maul and 
try to dominate in 
those areas. 

“Then you’ve got to 
take your opportuni¬ 
ties when you can and 
I think last season 
down in Castres we 
scored one outstand¬ 
ing try moving the the 
ball from our own 22.” 

The match is also 
crucial to 
Northampton's 
chances of reaching 
the knock-out stages of 
European rugby’s pre¬ 
mier club competition 
after they suffered 
defeats in their open¬ 
ing group matches 
away to Munster and 
at home to the 
Scarlets. 

Mallinder, though, 
remains confident, 
saying: “By losing the 
first two we’ve put 
pressure on ourselves, 
but there’s no reason 
we can’t qualify. 

“Last season we went 
and won all six, so 
there is no reason why 
we can’t go and win 
four games on the 
bounce.” 


Charity fight night sees Baczyski the star of dinner bill 


BOXING 

JACOB BACZYSKI was named Evans Boxing 
Academy’s fighter of the night following his third 
round stoppage of Nirvana ABC’s W Billow on 
Monday evening. 

For the 42nd year, the St James-based club and 
stalwart Bill Evans organised the annual dinner 
evening at the Park Inn Hotel to benefit the Rotary 
Club of Northampton. 

The ten-fight card saw five of the contests 
involving members of the host club, and although 
Baczyski was the only one to record a win he did it 
in impressive fashion. 

Straight from the first bell he went on the 
offensive against Billow, taking advantage of a low 
left hand from the Leicester man to land some 
telling right hooks to his head. 

Baczyki’s relentless pressure in the second saw 
Billow given a standing eight count before he 
unleashed his full arsenal in the last, forcing the 
referee to halt proceedings. 

Club mate Martin Piechota topped the bill 
against Sileby ABC’s Richard Twist, and in a close- 
fought contest he ended up losing by a majority 
decision. 

Earlier in the evening, Piechota had been 


presented with an award for his dedication to the 
club, but was unable to cap the evening with a win 
after being edged out by Twist. 

Boxing barber Adrian Gheorghe was pitted 
against Burton Park ABC’s Adrian Sharpe over four 
two-minute rounds, with Sharpe utilising his 
height and reach advantage to take a unanimous 
decision win on the scorecards. 

John Smith also lost by the same verdict against 
Sileby’s Elias Dexter, while Karl Valdita was 
stopped in his brave battle against Sean Tait, of 
Leicester’s Unity ABC. 

Two of the town’s other clubs were also 
represented on the night, with Northampton ABC 
seeing Daniel Tyres, Daniel Ajagbe and Alex Pennell 
in action. Tyres stopped Geddington ABC’s Duncan 
Miller in the second round of an entertaining super 
heavyweight contest after opening a big cut on 
Miller’s left eye with a wicked right cross that led 
to the referee halting the bout. 

Ajagbe’s tussle with Unity’s Kim Samuel was a 
close-run affair where the momentum swung one 
way then the other as both boxers landed some 
good scoring punches. 

However, at the conclusion of the three rounds it 
was Samuel who got the nod from the judges by a 
majority decision. 

Pennell was up against another Northampton 


boxer Kaylan Abrams, of Far Cotton Boys ABC, and 
it was Abrams who made it two wins from his first 
two contests after winning a crowd-pleasing tear- 
up by unanimous decision. 

The evening began with Wellingborough ABC’s 
Josh Brooks beating Marcus Clifton, of Campol 
ABC, by a majority decision. 

Elsewhere on the card, Jack Johnson won the 
battle of the Leicestershire clubs against Sileby’s 
Lewis Greeson, with the Earl Shilton ABC junior 
triumphing by unanimous decision. 

JIMMY SINGH’S return to the ring saw him claim a 
unanimous decision win over Polish boxer D 
Nowak in Hoddesdon on Saturday night. 

The Far Cotton Boys ABC pugilist was making his 
first appearance of the season and took a 
convincing win in the 62kg contest at the Robert 
Gilling Hall. 

Club mate Carl Fail was also boxing on the same 
bill against Polish opposition, and like Singh he 
won by a unanimous verdict over M Marcinkowski. 

John Daly has four of his boxers out tomorrow 
night on the Benny’s ABC show at Cotgrave Miners 
Welfare in Nottingham. 

Eithan James, Ben Fail and Kyle Owen are all set 
to feature on the card, while Luke Corr is also 
down to make his debut for the club.

H&PSPORT 


New club aims to get more kids involved in sport 


RUGBY LEAGUE 

STEVE Ferres of the Rugby Football 
League believes that Northampton 
Town’s venture into the sport will 
succeed where others have failed 
and has vowed that the governing 
body will give them its full backing. 

It was confirmed last Thursday 
that Northampton had won one of 
the four places available in Co¬ 
operative Championship One - the 
third tier of rugby league in this 
country - from the 2013 summer 
season onwards. The team, which 
will be owned by the Cobblers and 
play out of Sixfields, will also be 


associated with the town’s amateur 
club Northampton Demons, with 
earning a place in the top flight 
Super League the eventual aim. 

Fulham, Cardiff City and Preston 
North End are amongst those foot¬ 
ball clubs to have tried running 
rugby league teams in the past, 
with varying degrees of success, but 
RFL club support manager Mr 
Ferres said: “It comes down to 
people, and people wanting things 
to work. 

“David [Cardoza] is adamant that 
he wants to make this work and 
we’re going to get behind him and 
help him make that happen. 


“It’s a wonderful opportunity to 
see another sport - it isn’t in com¬ 
petition with football and we want 
football people to embrace it. 

“This can be a community based 
club; let’s keep the kids off the 
street and get them playing sport. 

“We have got a great opportunity 
to play year-in, year-out and the 
people of Northampton can go 
down here and enjoy a fantastic 
sport. 

“We have been poor in pushing it 
forward - there is no doubt about 
that and we will admit to that 
which is why it has been a 
northern-based game. 


“We want to expand that, we want 
people to see and share what it’s all 
about.” 

The club are currently recruiting 
members for a fan panel that will 
decide the kit and nickname, as 
well as discussing various issues 
brought up by both them and those 
running the new operation. 

Northampton’s new rugby league 
team will be run off the field by the 
staff of the football club, while they 
have also formed a link with Super 
League side Wakefield Trinity 
Wildcats who will assist with many 
aspects, including coach education 
and marketing. 


Moment of 
truth as Aidy 
gets down 
to business 


BY MARC BAZELEY 

marc.bazeleyPHPnorthants.co.uk 


AIDY Boothroyd will see on Saturday 
whether the hard work and long hours 
that he vowed to put the Northampton 
Town squad through has paid off when 
he takes to the dugout at Sixfields for his 
first game in charge. 

It is just over a week since the former 
Watford, Colchester United and Coventry 
City boss (pictured) was named as Gary 
Johnson's successor in the managerial 
hot-seat at the club, with Crewe 
Alexandra providing the opposition in 
League Two this weekend. 

An first round exit in the FA Cup at the 
hands of Blue Square Bet Premier side 
Luton Town meant the Cobblers did not 
have a game last weekend, giving 
Boothroyd extra time to whip his new 
charges into shape ahead of the visit of 
Crewe. 

The 40-year-old’s first task is to try to 
end the nine game winless run in the 
league stretching back to September 24 
that has seen Northampton slip closer 
and closer towards the relegation zone. 

Their last outing was a 4 -1 defeat at bot¬ 


tom side Plymouth Argyle, while Crewe 
come into the game having won their 
first two matches under new manager 
Steve Davis that has seen them move up 
to 15th in the division after a poor run. 

Boothroyd has had plenty of time to get 
an idea of the team he will pick for 
Saturday, although he is limited in what 
changes he can make to the squad until 
the transfer window opens next month. 

Club chairman David Cardoza has said 
he will back any transfer ambitions that 
his new manager has should he decide to 
bring in new players, although 
Boothroyd has stated his intention to 
give the current members of the squad 
the chance to feature. 

On-loan midfielder Derek Niven has 
now returned to Chesterfield following 
the end of his month long spell, while 
others are likely to leave at the start of 
next year as the boss looks to trim the 
numbers in the squad. 

Saido Berahino is also a doubt for the 
Crewe game after suffering a knee injury, 
while Byron Webster, Nana and 
Nathaniel Wedderburn all remain long¬ 
term absentees with their various 
injuries. 



Wilson edges home after potted pink set up narrow victory 


SNOOKER 

YOUNG professional, Kyren 
Wilson won the Barratts 
Handicap event for the first time 
when he edged out Jon 
‘Thorpedo’ Thorpe 2-1 in the final 
of Saturday’s tournament. 

The contest between the two was 
a close affair and either player 


could have won as it was decided 
on the final pink and black. 

Thorpe rattled a long pink 
which would have won him the 
title and at one stage Wilson left 
the pink right over the pocket - 
but luckily he covered it with the 
black. 

In the end Kettering professional 
Wilson potted a good pink with 


the rest to set himself up on an 
easy black to win. 

The 19-year-old produced a great 
performance in his quarter final as 
he trailed 1-0 against Lee Lovell but 
then made back-to-back centuries 
of 106 and 105 to go through. 

In the semi final Thorpe played 
Kyren’s brother, Taylor, and 
stopped the siblings meeting in 


the final by making breaks of 70 
and 69. The defending champion, 
Jake Spiezick, was defeated by the 
improving youngster George Ellis 
in the last 16. 

However, Spiezick did go on to 
make the plate final before being 
beaten 2-0 by Ross Buthee. 

The next tournament is on 
Saturday, January 7. 


Smith steps up 
to crease as 
county’s chief 

CRICKET 

FORMER Warwickshire batsmen 
David Smith has been named as 
Mark Tagg's replacement as chief 
executive of Northants Cricket, and 
will start his new role next month. 

Tagg stepped down from the role in 
October and since then David 
Beckett has been the county's 
acting chief executive. 

But now they have appointed 
Smith, who has previously worked 
with his former county, 
Leicestershire and the ECB, as well 
as having experience in the leisure 
retail sector. 

Smith said: “The club has made real 
progress both on and off the field 
over the past few years. 

"The ground development has 
improved the facilities on offer to all 
visitors to the County Ground. 

“The team have narrowly missed 
out on promotion to Division One in 
the LV= County Championship twice 
in the last three years, as well as 
appearing in a t20 Finals Day. 

"This indicates a good quality 
playing staff, and I am looking 
forward to working with the coach 
David Capel and the Board of 
Directors to bring future success to 
the club." 

Smith's playing career with 
Warwickshire spanned a twelve-year 
period between 1973 and 1985. Fie 
then spent nine years on the 
committee at Edgbaston following 
his retirement. 

Most recently he was chief 
executive officer with Leicestershire, 
stepping down from that position 
last year. 

Fie also has 20 years experience in 
many of the UK’s tourist attractions, 
including Blackpool Tower the 
Winter Gardens, and the Prince of 
Wales and Edward West End 
Theatres. 

Northants’ acting chief executive 
Beckett said: “David’s experience in 
cricket is outstanding and we are 
sure that he will make Northants 
Cricket successful in all areas of the 
business. 

“Throughout the recruitment 
process, David impressed us with his 
plans for the ongoing improvement 
of Northants Cricket.” 

Meanwhile, Northants skipper 
Andrew Flail was on the losing team 
as Mashonaland Eagles finished 
runners-up to the Mountaineers in 
Zimbabwe’s Stanbic Bank 20 Series. 

Flail was one of several county 
cricketers that headed to Africa for 
the nine-day Twenty20 tournament 
that culminated at the Flarare Sports 
Club on Sunday. 

The former South Africa 
international was on the same team 
as Essex’s Ryan ten Doeschate, 
Surrey captain Rory Flamilton-Brown 
and Somerset’s Peter Trego, as well 
as former Northants overseas player 
Elton Chigumbura. 

A 23-run Duckworth/Lewis win 
over the Matebeleland Tuskers saw 
the Eagles through to the final in the 
play-offs that followed the pool 
stage. 

Flowever, 56 from Durham 
wicketkeeper Phil Mustard and good 
bowling from Dirk Nannes and 
Shingirai Masakadza during the reply 
helped the Mountaineers to triumph 
by 27 runs.

Don’t let brawl take gloss 
off performance - Mallinder 



BY MARC BAZELEY 

marc.bazeleyPHPnorthants.co.uk 


JIM Mallinder played down the ugly scenes 
from last weekend’s East Midlands Derby at 
Welford Road that resulted in two players 
being sent off and Chris Ashton being handed 
a four-week suspension. 

The brawl between players from 
Northampton Saints and Leicester Tigers in the 
first half took some of the gloss off what was a 
thrilling contest that was only decided in the 
closing minutes when Horacio Agulla raced 
away to score the winning try to make it 30-25 
to the hosts. 

Originally, both Alesana Tuilagi and Tom 
Wood were sent off by referee Wayne Barnes for 
their part in the melee. However, Saints winger 
Ashton was later cited due to pulling Tuilagi’s 
dreadlocks dragging him into touch, which 
sparked the whole scrap. 

“I think it [the brawl] has been blown out of 
context really and with it being on live TV that 
probably didn’t help, but you do have to put 
into context what a magnificent game of rugby 
it was,” said Mallinder. 

“We do see things like that in training, we see 
them in games, and we’re not saying we want 
that to happen but sometimes it’s a result of 15 
players on each side going at each other for 80 
minutes. 

“It was a tremendous advert for the packed 
Welford Road crowd; I thought the rugby there 
was fantastic, two teams giving everything they 
have got, but with a lot of skill and tries. 

“The game had everything and what we have 
got to be careful of is that we don’t take some of 
the things which are precious to the game of 
rugby out of it.” 

Mallinder and the club are currently debating 
whether or not to appeal Ashton’s ban, which 
sees him miss the back-to-back Heineken Cup 
games against Castres and Aviva Premiership 
clash at home to Bath and away to Newcastle 


Falcons. It is not the first time the England inter¬ 
national has tangled with one of the Tuilagi clan, 
having been on the receiving end of a vicious 
punch from Alesana's brother Manu during the 
Premiership semi-final on the same ground last 
season that saw him banned for a similar period. 


Meanwhile, Mallinder was also left frustrated 
that Tigers skipper Geordan Murphy did not 
receive any punishment after he appeared to 
take out Northampton full back Ben Foden just 
before Agulla streaked away for the game 
clinching score three minutes from time. 


“I don't think he was ever going to get cited 
for that which was disappointing because it 
had a massive outcome on the game, but he got 
away with that,” he said. 

“We talk about playing to the edge but not 
going over it, and sometimes you do go over it. 
We’ve had incidents in the past at Welford Road 
and sometimes teams need to be penalised if 
you do. 

“We had a player sent off from both sides so 
we were both down to 14 and that didn’t deter¬ 
mine the outcome of the game massively. 

“Ultimately, out of that we’ve lost a player for 
four weeks and Leicester haven’t lost anybody.” 

Wood is available for this Saturday’s European 
game away at Castres after his sending off was 
deemed sufficient punishment by the discipli¬ 
nary panel. 

However, Mallinder is having to consider his 
options for the back row after Phil Dowson was 
banned for two weeks. 

He was up in front of the judiciary after being 
cited for a dangerous tackle on Alex Goode dur¬ 
ing Northampton’s 30-8 win over Saracens two 
weeks ago, and pleaded guilty to the charge. 

Calum Clark is also injured and number eight 
Roger Wilson is a doubt after being forced off 
during the defeat to Leicester. 

That means Samu Manoa and Ben Nutley are 
likely to feature, while youngster James Ingle 
has also been drafted into the European squad. 

Mallinder is expecting another bruising 
encounter against the French outfit, particular¬ 
ly up front against a large pack. 

However, the side are well aware of what to 
expect having faced Castres in the pool stage of 
last year's Heineken Cup as well. 

“They are a big, physical team and we were 
tested against them home and away last sea¬ 
son,” said Mallinder. 

“They’re a good side; they started the season 
very well and won a lot of games. They’ve not 
been doing quite as well over the last couple of

beyond what is expected 
of them and I know that 
their success is good 
news not just for their 
customers but for 
everyone who uses the 

town centre. 99

partnership, bringing 
together businesses and 
all the public sector 
agencies to deliver a 
scheme that encourages 
landlords to take pride in 
their premises 
and surroundings, and to 
put something back into 
the town and the local 
community. This is a 
great scheme that 
promotes Northampton 
as a safe place with 
professionally run venues 
to visit. mm
