Northampton Rural Matters Newsletter

Posted: Mon, 15 Jul 2019 14:30 by Parish Clerk

Northamptonshire Police has published a new newsletter called "Northamptonshire Rural Matters". It is a newsletter for residents and businesses about the work going on to fight rural crime in Northamptonshire. The first issue introduces the Rural and Wildlife Crime Team and there's a message from the Chief Constable, Nick Adderley. It covers issues of great interest to parish and town councils, such as Fly-tipping, rural burglary and theft of farm equipment. Northamptonshire Police are asking parish and town councils to help circulate the newsletter. It is available as a PDF only but if every parish and town council in the county posted a copy on their web sites and Facebook pages (many have done so already, thank you) it will help reach a very wide audience. A copy of the newsletter is available at
