Everybody Needs Good Neighbours!
Hi, My name is Angela and I live in Cold Ashby. I have recently heard about Daventry District Council’s Good Neighbour Scheme and I am interested in finding out more about the possibility of setting one up in Cold Ashby.
To help me do that, I will be attending the above event in Moulton on October 1st. If you’d also like to go along for all or part of the day, and would like a lift, please let me know on 01604 740703/07799 473656 or email me at email@example.com. The event is free and lunch is provided.
The day will provide an opportunity to meet other groups and organisations; hear the benefits of running a Good Neighbour scheme; listen to first-hand knowledge of existing schemes; and find out more information about the professional support available. See the programme below for more details about the day’s event.
Angela Edwards, 3 Park Spinney Close, Cold Ashby.
