VILLAGE BREAKFAST

Hollowell residents came together on 9th February for a wonderful breakfast in our newly refurbished village hall. Over 50 people enjoyed delicious bacon and sausage sandwiches, washed down by aromatic coffee from our new coffee machines. It was a warm and friendly occasion, and a great opportunity for friends and neighbours to catch up. The event was organised by the Village Hall Committee, and all of the proceeds will go towards the maintenance of the hall.

HOLLOWELL HENS

In February a group of 'Hollowell Hens' gathered to discuss what we would like to do at our monthly get-togethers this year.  We didn't quite manage to finalise the list, but there were many excellent suggestions ranging from old favourites such as a barbeque, croquet, curry night, film night and wreath-making to more adventurous ideas including pole dancing and go-karting!

 If you fancy joining in any of these activities or would just like to find out more about the Hollowell Hens, please email Sarah at sarah@mourant.uk

At the end of February, Carrie Billings hosted a very successful Hollowell Hens Healthy Eating and Essential Oils Evening. The Hens discussed and tasted a variety of healthy recipes, after which there was a very informative presentation on the powerful contribution that essential oils can make to a natural healthcare plan. The Hens enjoyed an eclectic range of delicious healthy treats, including cranberry and banana oat bars, dark chocolate and chilli bites with roasted pistachio nuts, home-made lemonade, home-baked crisps with a mango dip. Heather Goram, a DoTerra

Essential Oils consultant, gave a fascinating presentation on the benefits of a variety of oils, including orange blossom, frankincense, and peppermint.

HOLLOWELL & TEETON PARISH COUNCIL NEWS

Bench Cleaning

Councillors Mike Tomalin and Allen Eaton and a team from Hollowell Steam Rally took advantage of the unseasonably warm February weather to pressure wash all the benches in the Pocket Park. We are very grateful for their Spring Cleaning services.

Mowing:

Mark Hazle, the Parish Council Mowing Contractor, will be resuming his activities around the Parish to maintain the verges and the Pocket Park.

Details of the areas maintained under the Contract can be seen on the Hollowell & Teeton web site: http://www.hollowellandteeton.org.uk/parish-council

Please contact the Clerk if you have any questions about this work (or any other issues that are the responsibility of the Parish Council), either by the web site contact page or email direct: pc-clerk@hollowellandteeton.org.uk


HOLLOWELL POCKET PARK

As soon as the ground in the park is sufficiently dry, work will begin to install two small roundabout style pieces of equipment. One of the pieces will replace the old metal climbing frame which had to be removed last year for safety reasons. The project has been driven by Hollowell Pocket Park Action Committee and facilitated by the Parish Council and they are grateful to Daventry District Council and to Northamptonshire Community Foundation for funding assistance. It may be necessary to close all or part of the park whilst the work is carried out.
