Streetlamps

Please report any faulty street lamps to lightsout@woodfordpc.co.uk. Woodford Parish Council owns all of the lamps in the village and repairs can only take place if we know about the fault and authorise the repair. Once the Parish Clerk is aware of the fault the contractor will normally repair the lamp in about a week. All you need to report is the lamp number (if known), or the location/address. Please don't assume someone else has reported the fault. We'd rather have two reports than none.

Silos in Thrapston Road

The recent windy weather has caused more damage to the silos in Thrapston Road. Whilst in a precarious state, the owner, AE Horrell and son, has confirmed that following an inspection w/c 30 April by both the fire brigade and local council they pose no danger to persons using Thrapston Road , however, on no account should the site be entered. The silos will be demolished in the near future.

Potholes

Potholes, dangerous pavements and blocked drains/gullies within the village and all approach roads are handled by Street Doctor.

This County Council service can be reached on the County Council Website.

Weather in April 2018

The month will be remembered for the (nationally) warmest April day recorded for more than 70 years on the 19th. The maximum temperature in Woodford was 27.7C beating the 27.3C recorded in 2011 (23rd April). The overall maximum average temperature for the month was 14.5C which was a degree cooler than the overall average for April. The average minimum was 6.6C which was almost 3C higher than the average minimum temperature. (This was the highest minimum average temperature recorded this century marginally beating April 2007). Consequently the average overall temperature was higher than normal but was down to the warmer night time temperatures than normal rather than the daytime temperature which overall were lower than normal. For the first time since 2002 the month was totally frost free. Rainfall for the month was 54mm which was very slightly more than average (long term 48mm).

The twelve months rainfall to the end of April was 601mm which is the annual average.

Think Before You Park Scheme

Vehicles parked in Woodford that are either causing obstructions to pedestrians or other motorists, or those parked on double yellow lines are to be monitored by Woodford Parish Council and reported to Northamptonshire Police, in a joint scheme now being implemented in a number of villages. In particular the offences causing concern are highlighted in the Highway Code.

Any such vehicles will be photographed and details will be forwarded to the Police. The motorists attention will be drawn to the fact by a yellow/orange coloured card placed on the windscreen. The Council is limited evidence gathering only.

The Police will decide how the matter is to be followed up: e.g. a warning letter, perhaps a visit from Police for repeat offenders etc.

If you need to contact the local Police regarding this scheme the email address is
