Congratulations and thank you for supporting the village hall.


Although most dog owners in Hollowell pick up after their pets, we have a persistent problem with dog fouling along the grass verges at the top of Church Hill.  The parish council has been monitoring the situation and has installed new signs, and Daventry District Council’s dog warden has made several visits to the area to re-establish a poo spraying campaign. During one visit 70 poos were sprayed.

Since December 2015 it became an offence to fail to pick up after your dog on ALL LAND to which the public has access, including agricultural land and grass verges. Dog fouling is both unpleasant and a danger to health, PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG - IT IS THE LAW!

If you spot anyone failing to pick up after their pet please report it by completing  Daventry DC’s on-line form here.




As soon as the ground in the park is sufficiently dry, work will begin to install an aerial runway close to the existing play equipment.   The project has been driven by Hollowell Pocket Park Action Committee and facilitated by the Parish Council and they are grateful to Hollowell Steam Rally and the National Lottery for funding assistance.  

It may be necessary to close all or part of the park whilst the work is carried out.

One of the older pieces of equipment, the red metal climbing frame with slide, will shortly be removed from the park.  This piece is in need of repair and has reached an age and stage where the Parish Council had decided its removal is the most appropriate option.  Again many thanks to the Steam Rally who acquired and installed the piece.  It has provided many years of fun for children in the area.


The 32nd Hollowell Steam and Heavy Horse Show will take place on Saturday and Sunday

7th and 8th July 2018.

Two days of traditional entertainment for all the family.



In February over 40 people enjoyed a great Quiz Night in Hollowell Village Hall. It was a cold night outside but inside the bar remained busy, as the tension and heat grew in the Quiz Room! Our Quiz Master, Phil Curtis, asked a series of questions that taxed all brains. Topics ranged from popular entertainment to local knowledge to cryptic questions. were around ten teams who vied for the esteemed ‘Hollowell Quiz Cup’ and a bottle of wine. results were close but in the end, Team Uplanders won by a creditable margin and took home the trophy which they promised would be polished and cherished until the next Quiz. This was the first Quiz Night to be organised by the Village Hall Committee and all funds will go towards the modernisation of the Hall.

As the Village Link went to press, the Hollowell Hens were preparing to meet to plan their social engagements for the year.   

More detail will follow on the Hollowell and Teeton Facebook page. The Hollowell Hens is a relaxed social group open to any female residents of Hollowell and Teeton and to their friends. We usually organise an event each month ranging from wine tastings, a BBQ, visits to stately homes and pudding nights.
