Daventry Town Council is pleased to announce that the vacancy for Town Councillor for Ashby Field Ward has been filled by 30-year-old Carl Busby.
Carl, who has lived in Daventry for the last 18 years has been involved in various community and volunteer schemes through his place of work and wanted to join the Town Council to make a difference.
Carl is delighted to join Daventry Town Council and stated "The town has a lot of people that care about it, but they do not know how or where to start making a difference. I would like to help Daventry residents have their voices heard and bring some of their ideas to reality. People really do care about where they live, it only takes one person to start something, but it needs everyone to make it happen."

Daventry Town Council are asking local residents to check their sheds/outhouses/garages and donate any old unwanted bikes to help ensure the success of a community project. We would like your help to put Daventry on the map and are appealing for donations of any old bikes which will be distributed to participating schools to paint pink and decorate in their own unique style.
Once decorated the bicycles will be positioned around Daventry Town Centre to welcome top class cyclists competing in the final stage of the Aviva women's tour on Sunday the 19th June 2016. It's hoped that hundreds of people will line London Road and New Street in Daventry to cheer the riders on as the race comes to the town centre for the first time. More »
Any residents wishing to donate a bicycle please call Daventry Town Council on 01327 301246 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Town Council are pleased to be working with Danetre Rotary Club, Leisure Lakes Bikes, Daventry Cycling Club and Northamptonshire Sport on the pink bike project for Daventry. Further details of the event will be announced on our website shortly. » Less
