Letter From Daventry Mayor Mike Arnold: Week 5

Letter From Daventry Mayor Mike Arnold: Week 5

Well, it's nearly a wrap for April and sadly the extra nice weather, which I think helped to lift our spirits during this time.

This past week I've been keeping out of mischief working on the garden alongside Sheryl, my wife who has planted lots of green stuff in it! I'm still managing to keep up my cycling for exercise, although to do this safely means I have to get the brain working more to ensure I avoid built up areas. A task in itself!

Last week I took delivery of a fruit and veg box to help support our local businesses, who are able to provide this wonderful service. We have a meat box delivery booked and I haven't had a pizza for a while, so looks like a delicious week ahead! Yummy! Thank you to everyone for supporting local businesses, it all helps to keep Daventry thriving.

If you are struggling for things to do this week, Daventry Museum website has lots of family friendly activities to complete, plus a virtual tour of the latest exhibition; The Battle of Naseby. It also details history walks of the town, Borough Hill and on the outskirts of Daventry. You may be able to walk some of these routes as your daily exercise, but as always please remember to keep to the Governments distancing advice.

Don't forget, we have a Town Council meeting tonight at 6.30pm via video link. Why not join us virtually: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/156481285

As I sign off for another week I leave you a photo with my grandson taken at our 2019 Christmas Markets and light switch on event. Unfortunately all community events have been cancelled but at some point that will change, and we look forward to hosting events again for everyone to enjoy.

That's all for now so until next week please look after yourselves.
