As part of its Risk Assessment Policy, the Parish Council is required to undertake a three year inspection of trees located within the Parish, that are the responsibility of the Council.

Following this year’s inspection it has been established that five mature trees, located in the hedgerow of the Pocket Park bordering the Creaton Road, are diseased and need to be removed.

The Council has obtained quotations for felling these treesthis work will be carried out as soon as possible.  It is anticipated that the work will result in some restrictions along the Creaton Road and within the Pocket Park.

The Council will consider options for replacing the trees.

Saturday 30th September in Hollowell Village Hall from 9.30am - 12.00 noon  

Bacon sandwiches coffee and cake.  Carrie Billings is hosting a "World's Biggest Coffee Morning" in Hollowell.  This is a lovely opportunity to come along with family and friends to enjoy coffee and delicious home made cakes or a bacon butty and to support a wonderful charity.

I hope you can find the time to pop in. If you are unable to join me on this date but would like to make a donation I would be most grateful.  Thank you so much.


The glorious weather at the beginning of July brought record crowds to the 31st Hollowell Steam and Heavy Horse Rally. With fifteen hundred exhibitors and traders, pipe bands, dancers, and almost 50 steamers and heavy horses, there was something to entertain everyone. The Bishop of Peterborough also lead the service there on Sunday morning.

Rally organiser, Allen Eaton MBE said the highlight of the weekend came when the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, arrived to salute the rally from the skies on Sunday, at exactly the same time the engines were parading in the arena. The pilots were saluted in return with a chorus of engine toots.

Mr Eaton thanked everyone for making the event such a huge success and said he looked forward to the Give Away evening in October when local charities are presented with donations from the rally.


A team of volunteers from Hollowell will be taking part in Daventry District Council’s next focussed district-wide 6 week dog poo spraying campaign.  

The ‘Paint Means Poo’ Campaign involves spraying high visibility, brightly-coloured biodegradable paint onto dog mess, to highlight the extent of fouling and shock irresponsible owners into clearing up after their pets. The campaign starts on 11th September. Daventry DC reminds everyone that dog waste can be deposited in standard litter bins, not just dog poo waste bins.   

Dog fouling was reduced by more than half in the 28 areas carrying out the campaign last year.  


Great news for Hollowell & Cottesbooke …….

………..we have a new permanent postman. Dave Curtis will be making the deliveries in our villages - the first time we have had a regular postie since Barry retired two years ago.

Dave has been with the Royal Mail for more than 30 years and trained with Barry so he has already heard good things about both villages. He is eager to assist, so if you have any special instructions about using your side door, or leaving boxes in the green house he is happy to take them on board.

Hollowell residents gave the top athletes of the Women’s Tour an enthusiastic welcome as they sped through the village in early June, at the start of the first leg of the race.  Members of the recently formed Danish Team, Veloconcept were leading the field as they sailed down Guilsborough Hill, just 7 km into the race.


On a beautiful July evening a dozen or so Hens visited the gardens of Yvonne & Derek Daw and their neighbour Joyce in Cottesbrooke. Yvonne has a spectacular collection of hostas and many unusual plants whilst Joyce’s beautiful flower beds and vegetable plot were the envy of us all. We rounded off with a glass of wine with our hosts.

Hollowell Hens is a very informal, friendly group open to everyone in Hollowell & Teeton. Email for more information.


Hollowell Park Park Action Committee (HPPAC) has appointed a contractor to install the second phase of children’s play equipment in the Pocket Park.   Two new items of equipment which have been selected including an aerial runway and a jungle trail which should appeal to slightly older children between  6 and 12 years.  The overall cost of the project is £17,000.  Almost one third of the cost has already been raised and the committee will be approaching various grant funding bodies with the hope of completing the project by Spring 2018.  If you would like to donate to the scheme we would be very grateful.
