Welcome to the Village Link website. Please take a little time to browse our pages and discover what goes on where and when in our area. Within our pages you can also find out who does what locally. If you would like to contribute anything to any of our pages, including your favourite picture from where you live in our area, please follow the links on the Contact Us page. We would love to carry all the info for your local club or association and best of all, it’s all for free!

The map on the left is fully navigable plus you can zoom in and out by using the controls in the top left corner and if you view the larger map you can enter street view by dragging the little yellow person onto the map to where you want to view and go for a virtual walk around our streets and lanes.

 If you have any problems with the navigation elements within this web site, please review your ActiveX controls.

We are thrilled to report that thanks to the generosity of readers, parish organisations, clubs and societies and a grant from Northamptonshire County Council we have raised over £5,000 for Village Link. This means that  your newsletter has some financial security for several years based on the current format, print quantities, income and outgoings. THANK YOU all!  

This does not mean that we are sitting on our laurels. We still intend to explore ways to improve the magazine in terms of containing costs, but also potentially improving looks.  One of the ongoing debates we have is the issue of colour printing. One village has requested more colour content, but this is VERY expensive to produce and would eat into

the precious funds raised. However, we are investigating further

and will report back in the New Year.

Clubs & Societies 15%


Steam 10%

Church 4%

Parish Councils 10%

Private donations




Some of the volunteers with

blankets and boxes

Over 100 shoe boxes carrying Christmas gifts; warm clothing; candles; and 8 beautiful hand-knitted blankets will go this year from many generous villagers and the Brownies to families in need. Last year over 100,000 boxes were distributed in Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Modova, Pakistan, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine. If you are able to knit a 6” square and donate it, volunteers will combine it with other squares and sew up a lovely blanket. Contact Sue Needham on 01604 740916.
