The Annual Parish Meeting, followed by the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council will be held on Wednesday 17 May 2017 in the Village Hall.
The Parish Meeting starts at 7pm and includes the Chairman’s report on the previous 12 months, and an opportunity for the public to speak. This short meeting is followed at approx 7.30pm by the Annual Parish Council Meeting.

The group had a lovely couple of hours on 23 April, visiting some of our own gardens to see how our spring bulb pots had turned out. The winner of our informal competition (kindly judged by Pat Simmonds) was Beverly Teasdale for her creative planting, with Julia Harbage second for her all-white display, and Tricia Jones third for her purple pot.
Here are a few pictures from the morning.
If you love gardening, do join the group – it’s all very informal and friendly! Contact Tricia Jones on 747 851 for more information.
The June meeting is a trip to Kelmarsh Hall Gardens, on Thursday 1 June 2017. The plan is to leave Morcott about 10.30am. The cost is around £7.50 if we have a guided garden tour. Please contact Tricia if you would like to come – we will be car sharing.
The Village Hall Committee holds its Annual General Meeting tomorrow, Tuesday 2 May 2017 at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. This is an open meeting and all villagers are welcome to attend, and ask questions. The audited accounts will be presented.
(Please note that the extraordinary Parish Council meeting mooted for the same date will NOT take place as no applications/firm proposals for the Allotment Field were received by the deadline. This item will be carried forward to the next Parish Council Meeting.)
RCC Highways department has advised the Parish Council that it is carrying out work at the junction of The Cockpit/Wing Road/High Street on 25 & 26 April 2017 – that is Tuesday and Wednesday.
The junction will be closed and this will particularly inconvenience residents of Wing Road, or anyone travelling to Wing.
The diversion signs in place will no doubt confuse everyone and mean large/heavy vehicles travelling through the village on roads they should not normally undertake.
Further, the Centrebus Service 12 bus will not be able to travel through the village, but a diversion route has been put in place. They advise passengers to wait (and disembark) at the ‘triangle’ at the High Street/A6121 near the White Horse Inn. The bus will turn there and continue along the A47 to Glaston or Barrrowden as appropriate. Measures are being put in place to ensure that school transport is not disrupted.
