Remembrance 2020

Daventry Town Council is deeply saddened to announce that due to new government guidelines we are unable to hold the Remembrance Service at the war memorial this Sunday the 8th November.

The safety of Daventry residents and our staff is paramount and in light of the continuing increase of Covid-19 cases in our area, managing social distancing in this location is not possible.

Instead we will be uploading a commemorative video just before 11am for you to watch and pause for reflection in respect, commemorate all those who lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars and other conflicts.

We will remember them.

Daventry Mayor Cllr Lynne Taylor was delighted to visit local charity Daventry Contact to meet the team and see for herself the great work they are doing providing a unique service for the community.

Daventry Contact has 25+ years experience with helping people in the community and have proved to be invaluable during the Coronavirus pandemic, especially for those in desperate and urgent need of furniture, beds, soft furnishings, and food parcels in the town of Daventry and surrounding District.

The Charity has a small but very active team who collect donated furniture and domestic appliances, making sure they are checked for safety and function before being delivered to families and individuals who are often suffering with their mental and physical health, domestic violence and low income.

Daventry Contact is grateful for donations and is particularly keen to receive single beds, clean mattresses and fridges/freezers. If you're considering upgrading any domestic appliances or furniture do please let them know.

Also visiting at the same time was the Rotary Club of Danetre Daventry to present the charity with a cheque, which will go a long way to help Daventry Contact to help others. What a great all round community spirit!
