Warmington Parish Council is a statutory consultee in the application process for the "Elton2" quarry extension at the meadows to the north-west of Warmington Mill, where the Nene Way leads to Fotheringhay.

The parish council will do what it can to reflect local public opinion, but plays no part in the decision making process so it is really important that people submit their own responses to the application too.  The people making the decisions are county  councillors based in Northampton who do not know our parish and will not know how people feel unless it's made clear in a forthright but polite way that evidences how the proposals do not comply with planning law.

Representations received from the general public after 12th June 2019 and before the applications are considered at the Development Control Committee meeting (most likely to be in September), will be taken into account.

You can look at the papers provided by the applicant here: bit.ly/Elton2

And look at the proper extraction planing application here: bit.ly/Elton2rep and also make your response via that second link.

School road closure

Warmington School Fayre will take place on Saturday 15th June, preceded by a children's parade, from 1.45pm.

For the safety of all involved, the parade roads will be closed for about 10 or 15 minutes just before 2 o'clock on that Saturday.

The television programme Who Do You Think You Are? has highlighted this steadily growing hobby. Judging from emails sent to our village website we have a number of family historians interested in Warmington so there may be Warmington residents interested in researching their families elsewhere.

We are an informal group meeting at Oundle Methodist Chapel each month to share information and help each other in searching for our ancestors.
Our members are a mixture of beginners and more experienced family historians whose research covers families throughout the British Isles and overseas.
Visiting speakers join us to talk on interesting and relevant subjects and outings are arranged e.g. The National Archives at Kew in London.

Admission is free to members of the Northamptonshire Family History Society but a charge of £2 is made for visitors.
If you would like further information please feel free to contact Jenny Smith 01832 272061

Young Voices of Warmington first entertained us at last Summer's "Just Friends" annual concert when they enchanted the audience by singing a medley of songs from the Musical "Mary Poppins". At Christmas they sang delightfully in the Church carol Service. Their theme was "Christmas Bells" and included  a reading of the poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow together with the singing of a carol.

This group will perform again at the Diamond Jubilee Concert in June and will be open to anyone between the ages of 7 and 12.

Rehearsals will commence in the Summer term.

Please contact Jean Fisher ( Tel 280401) if you are interested in joining the group. Thank you.
