Whittlebury is a small village of some 236 households and a population of 589 (2011 Census) set on the edge of the historical royal hunting forest of Whittlewood. The earliest settlement has been traced to the Iron Age, and King Athelstan held court in Whittlebury in c.930AD. Our rural legacy can still be found today with many mature trees and views over the countryside surrounding the village with, in particular, the woods, parkland and deer park on the southern edge.

The Parish Council provides your local services and we strive to make Whittlebury a better place in which to live, work and play. This website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search facility or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for.

CORONA VIRUS IN THE COUNTY

Below is an extract from a letter of the Director of Health for Northamptonshire.

Remember HANDS...- FACE... SPACE...

Director of Public Health Issues Plea
This week's surveillance report, an analysis of the recent Coronavirus cases and rates over the period 9 - 15 November, shows that 1,642 residents have tested positive in the county since last week and that Northamptonshire's total cases in the last week are nearly nine times higher than the weekly averages seen last month. Northamptonshire's Director of Public Health, Lucy Wightman, issued a letter to all residents on Tuesday saying "We are currently seeing the largest rise in cases in Northamptonshire since the first national lockdown. Positive cases range across all age groups, but significantly are largest in the age groups from 10-59." The letter goes on to say "We all need to work hard to ensure that case numbers reduce in our local area, to ensure that we keep the people we love safe, and so that we can return to a more normal way of living as soon as possible when the national measures come to an end."

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 2020 IN WHITTLEBURY

There will be a short Act of Remembrance on Sunday 8th November 2020 at the village war memorial starting at 1050. The whole service will be in the one location and there will be no church service as in previous years.

People are asked to respect social distancing, to observe the 'Rule of Six' and to wear a face covering if possible. Regrettably there will be no singing.
