DTC take part in community day of action on The Grange

On Thursday 25th October 2018, Daventry Town Council took part in the community day of action on The Grange in Daventry, along with other organisations including Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue, Northamptonshire Police, Daventry District Council and other community organisations.

As part of Operation Unite, a partnership working group, and following on from the success of the Day of Fun on the Southbrook estate in August, the afternoon consisted of apple bobbing, firework and bonfire safety advice, face painting and a pumpkin carving competition.

It has been almost a year since the original launch of Operation Unite, a project to address issues of arson and anti-social behaviour in and around Daventry town centre.

The operation was launched almost a year ago by the Arson Task Force, a joint initiative between Northamptonshire Police and Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The project is run in conjunction with the Daventry District and South Northamptonshire Community Safety Partnership, with members including Neighbourhood Watch, Daventry District Council and Daventry Town Council.

Daventry Mayor, Cllr Lynn Jones, who was judging the pumpkins said of the afternoon, "Days like today are a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together. Part fun, part educational, it is great to see Daventry's prime public organisations leading the way for community engagement."

Daventry Town Council offered free face painting throughout the day and the DTC Ranger, Sean Croke, was on hand to offer community safety advice.
