KBC has announced a scheme to save money on energy by collective purchasing. It is designed to make it easier to switch to a cheaper electricity or gas tariff. In short, anyone can register for free by 8 October 2018. After the registration period ends, all those who have registered are offered a new energy tariff which they can accept, or not, as they wish. Details are here.
Please see in the link below a poster that outlines the Locally Identified Priorities for the Rural Police Team for the months of October to December. These have been identified by the locally community as what they want Police and partners to concentrate on.
The Local Police team would also like to ask for some help in collecting the data for the next set of Priorities. I have copied below the link that will take you to the Survey. Our Community can have a real impact on what the Police and partners prioritise in the coming months.

A message from NENESCAPE - Landscape and Partnership Scheme:
I am writing to you from River Nene Regional Park. We are working with Kettering Borough Council to facilitate the creation of a Green Infrastructure Delivery Plan for the whole borough, to support the regional and sub-regional green infrastructure plans. There will be ongoing stakeholder engagement with statutory bodies and landowners as well as local community engagement.
In order to ensure we are taking the aspirations of local communities into account and listening to the ideas and opinions of green infrastructure users, we will be holding a few public consultation drop-in events. I have attached a poster with further information and we would be very grateful if you were able to distribute it to public noticeboards, parish magazines and anywhere else your community might be able to see it. We encourage anyone with an interest to come along to any of the workshops (yourselves naturally included in that!) and we look forward to discussing your ideas together. Please also feel free to pass on the poster to local interest groups who use or look after green spaces.
If you or anyone else is unable to come to the drop-in sessions, there is also an online survey here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YSNQ7MT and we are happy for this link to be circulated. The survey will be live until the end of October to collate as many opinions as possible.
If you or anyone else has any questions, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
We look forward to meeting you at a drop-in session.
There has been some interest shown from parishes in relation to the East Kettering Development in recent times, so please note that there will be an East Kettering Liaison Forum held at KBC on 7th September from 6.00pm. This is a public meeting and any interested parties are welcome to attend.
A link to the agenda and relevant papers is included below.
Network Rail are requiring to remove vegetation from around the railway structure on Dingley Road in Braybrooke. To undertake this work safely will require that the road is closed 50m either side of the bridge structure for one day between 8am and 5pm. It is expected that the works will take place on the 4th September.
If you require more information about the works please contact Jason Elliott on 01792 775750.
66 local people attended the event in Braybrooke to discuss the plans for the Midland Mainline Upgrade and Substation. Please find attached further information on the plans for a new electricity substation. More news will follow as this develops.
A house on Griffin Rd, Braybrooke has been broken in to overnight. The rear patio door lock was snapped. The intruders came in, took a car key and some cash. They then drove off in one of the house owners cars, while they were asleep.
Please maintain vigilance and ensure security at night and while not at home. Ensure you pass this message onto to your neighbours. Thank you
