Letter From Daventry Mayor Mike Arnold: Week 6
Hope everyone is well and looking forward to the week ahead, particularly VE Day on Friday (8th May) and the 75th Anniversary Year celebrations.

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... Read More »
