Welcome to the website of Stanion Parish Council. Our website serves the residents of Stanion Parish and two main aims:

  2. To publish information relating to the local community and increase awareness of what is happening in the Village and across the Parish

Public Notices & Latest News

The Parish Council Spring/Summer Newsletter 2020

The Spring/Summer Newsletter has now been published on this website under ‘Newsletter’. To avoid any undue risk with regard to COVID-19 the Newsletter will only be published on the site and will not be provided as a hard copy to each household. We are confident that things will be back to normal for the Autumn/Winter 2020 edition.

Stanion Village Community

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: lenfarrow@yahoo.com

The Village Hall Committee were to hold 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. (This meeting is now subject to revision in line with the COVID-19 situation.) 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.
