The recent severe storms that have wreaked havoc in parts of the country, should remind us all of the need for community, often neglected, but vital in times of need or during emergencies, when the people of a community react with kindness and concern for their neighbours and work together in mutual support. This can be the worst of times but in some ways the best of times. It also confirms the importance of communal assets, such as the village hall, which can be used as a central location to provide a coordination hub, and in addition, a place of shelter. If we lose the village hall then that asset is gone, and there is always that possibility, if we do not, as a community, take on the responsibility of nurturing, protecting and maintaining this incredibly useful community asset.
For those unaware of the history, the hall was built with the help of Corby Borough Council, who provided the land and additional funding, with our community making a considerable financial contribution over a number of years to provide the remainder of the funding for the project.
It would be a travesty if the physical and financial effort and commitment of those who preceded us were to be undone by apathy and the village hall was to close.
The Parish Council is currently supporting the Village Hall Committee in its efforts to raise money to improve the appearance and facilities of the village hall, for the benefit of us all. But to ensure the long-term viability of the hall, we need greater participation and commitment across the generations, and this is that call to arms!
So if you are community-minded and you are willing to help in any small way, please contact Len Farrow by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Village Hall Committee will be holding a Stanion Village Hall Community Meeting at 7:30 pm on Thursday 23rd April 2020 (St George’s Day) to discuss the current and future management and use of the hall. The invitation to attend is open to all parish residents. So please attend and support the Village Hall Committee, who freely give of their own time to ensure that we can all enjoy the benefits of this community facility.
Mulberry Developments Ltd/Greatline Developments Ltd, have applied to Corby Borough Council for outline planning permission to build another Logistic Park, comprising office and commercial facilities with associated infrastructure on Land at Cowthick Plantation, Stamford Road, Corby.
These proposals are currently under consideration by Corby Borough Council under planning application reference 18/00817/OUT, the application has seen various amendments and updates to the original form of the application, first submitted in December 2018.
The Parish Council objected to the scheme in its original form and to the proposal under the revisions. Following on from our objection to the scheme we have been in contact with other Parish Councils along the route of the A6116, who are also concerned at the increase in HGV traffic along the route, and we have also had further contact with our Member of Parliament, Tom Pursglove, to keep him informed of developments. Though Tom has no statutory power in these matters he is very keen to understand our concerns and to provide support where he is able to.
The Parish Council’s written responses to the application are on this website under Planning.
