Daventry Town Council invests in Community Safety

Daventry Town Council invests in Community Safety

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 17:08 by Daventry Town Council

Daventry Town Council takes community safety very seriously and for the past 4 years has allocated over £50,000 of its annual budget in managing and maintaining a CCTV service for the Town.

The CCTV system operates 24/7 and images, of prosecution evidence quality, are directly linked to the Northamptonshire Police control room and can be guided by experienced operators, monitoring over 40 cameras to provide surveillance of key areas to maximise public safety and provide evidence, as required.

The Town Council has also committed to fund, in the next financial year, a PCSO and a Community Ranger, who by working in partnership will provide maximum effectiveness of the CCTV system and reassurance for the community, local businesses and visitors to the Town.

Daventry is a safe place to live and Daventry Town Council considers CCTV together with policing to be one of the most powerful tools available to assist with efforts to combat crime and create a safer Daventry and civic pride within the community.

Daventry Town welcomes Spirit of Christmas & Lantern Parade

Daventry Town welcomes Spirit of Christmas & Lantern Parade

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 15:52 by Sophie Wallace

On Friday 8th December the Spirit of Christmas arrived in Daventry, along with the snow.

Those who braved the weather, enjoyed a variety of free activities including rides on a ferris wheel, a carousel, face-painting, a nativity photo booth and donkey rides. Then there was the magical and enchanting Santa's grotto and meeting Santa, an experience that touched the hearts of everyone who met him.

The evening ended with the Lantern Parade, led by Santa, winding his way through the Town, followed by children carrying their beautiful lanterns, crunching through the year's first snow fall. More »

The parade ended in Bowen square with a fantastic performance by the Daventry Players who, in spite of the wintery weather, sang Christmas songs to a delighted audience.

So a big thank you to all who made the event possible and to all those who braved the weather and joined in the fun. » Less
