Support during the coronavirus pandemic

Are you in need of extra support during the coronavirus pandemic? Or do you know someone in your local community who might need some help?

Daventry District Council is working with a range of partner organisations to co-ordinate local efforts to get people the help they need during these difficult times.

An army of volunteers has come forward to offer their help with everything from collecting prescriptions or shopping for people who cannot leave their home, to offering a friendly ear to those who might be feeling a bit lonely.

So if you are in need of any support, or know anyone who might need help, please get in touch.

Help that can be arranged includes:

▪️Collecting prescriptions

▪️Help with shopping/emergency supplies

▪️Telephone befriending

If you are in need of help and support please go to Daventry District Council’s website to complete an online form:<>

Once you have completed the form, we will match you with a community group of volunteers who will contact you as soon as they can to arrange the support you need. Please be aware we are experiencing huge demand for these services at the moment, so you may not get a response straight away.

Yelvertoft Annual Parish Meeting

To: All Yelvertoft village organisations

Re:       Annual Parish Meeting Invite

We are writing to invite you to the Yelvertoft Annual Parish meeting which will be held at 7pm on Monday 6th April 2020. 

Due to Coronavirus please note that all face-to-face meetings have been suspended so the meeting will be via web conference. 

We would really appreciate a report on what your organisation has been working on over the last 12 months, and also a presentation of your accounts.  This is a great opportunity for you to inform the village about your work, plans, achievements, and anything else you wish them to know.

We are often approached by village organisations with requests for funding, which we welcome.  Please note that priority for funding will be given to those groups that attend the Annual Parish Meeting as the Parish Council has a duty to all residents to ensure all funding awarded is made on a fair basis and in order for us to make such decisions we need to know what groups contribute to the village, how active they are and have an overview of their finances.

If you, or a representative, are unable to attend the meeting then you are welcome to send me a report which I will read out at the meeting.  If you are attending the meeting I would really appreciate you emailing me a copy of the report also to include in the minutes.

If you wish to participate:
