RINGING OF CHURCH BELLS

A PLEA TO COTTESBROOKE VILLAGERS
This page of Cottesbrooke News has been brought to you by Chris Utley. Chris stepped down from this role with the previous issue of The Village Link but has gallantly come up with some stories for this edition.
It would be really good to continue to hear from Cottesbrooke so if you have a story or a picture that would be of interest to your fellow villagers and neighbours, please get in touch and we can send out our roving reporter!
You can contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can phone Richard Hollingum on 07887 652599
THE LAUNCHING OF A MODEL ROCKET
Mr Stefan Croft with the permission of the Estate Farm Manager Henry Clemens, successfully launched a model rocket in an open field in the village. The rocket, purchased from the Northampton Model Shop, entertained the village children and their parents during the recent school holidays. It was a damp foggy morning but success was achieved thanks to the patience of all. The Rocket was launched from a special pad and reached the low hanging clouds, descending by parachute. It was quite a sight!
“Each accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”
NGS GARDENS OPEN

Sunday, 5th May
2pm – 5.30pm
Please be on the alert for 'Unannounced Visitors' to your property. Recently one villager was totally surprised when a young person was seen having a 'look around' and when approached, with his hands on the rear doors of a parked van, said he had lost his horse and was looking for it. A verbal exchange took place and he left.
