This is superb news for Northants…keep it going NHS

“Northamptonshire is going great guns…but that doesn’t happen by magic, it happens by hard graft”

Health Secretary salutes county GPs and volunteers in delivering 86,000 Covid vaccine doses

Health Secretary Matt Hancock today hailed the “hard graft” which has made Northamptonshire’s NHS’ covid vaccine roll-out one of the most successful in the country.

Official figures showed the county is among the top three areas n England after delivering jabs to 87.2 per cent of the 80-plus population in the county.

Only Hereford & Worcestershire and Gloucestershire have a better rate at 89.4 per cent and 91.1 per cent respectively up to January 24.

Kettering MP Philip Hollobone used today’s House of Commons session of questions to the Health Secretary to ask him for acknowledgement of the roll-out’s success in Northamptonshire.

Mr Hancock said: “Northamptonshire NHS is going great guns but that doesn’t happen by magic.

“It happens by by hard graft especially by those GPs, pharmacists, support teams and volunteers who are doing such a great job in Northants.”

Northants is already well over half-way towards its target of delivering Covid-19 jabs to 135,000 people by mid-February with more than 86,000 doses of the precious vaccine gone to to 76,403 people by January 24.

And that was the BEFORE the new mass vaccination centre in Northampton opened with the capacity to vaccinate thousands more!

Chris Pallot, director of the Northampton vaccination programme, said: “We do know this vaccine will stop people becoming very sick and that is the most important thing.

“In time, this is our way towards the end of this terrible journey and it’s a huge privilege to be a part of it.

“To put a light at the end of the tunnel is a great privilege. It has been humbling to see how many hands have gone up to help.”

Peter O’Dowd, 80, travelled from Wellingborough to get his jab at Moulton Park.

He has been isolating since March last year and should have been soaking up the sun in Benidorm right now if the pandemic had not interfered.

He said: “I’m relieved to get it done. Lockdown’s been really bad because I play golf and I can’t play it any more.

“I feel much happier now, really, now it’s been done. I feel a lot more safer, more confident. It gives you quality of life.”

A popular Corby discount food shop has once again extended its membership to include almost all key workers and to those on means tested benefits and free school meals

To help families during the third national lockdown Company Shop Corby, in Princewood Road, has extended its membership to key workers and those in need so more people can benefit from food the bargains on offer – some half the normal retail price.

Company Shop membership has always been open to those working in the NHS, social care, emergency services, fast-moving consumer goods supply chain, British army and prison services, but throughout the pandemic membership has been temporarily extended to include almost all key workers including those who work in schools and the local council.

In order to reach families most in need across the region, particularly in light of school closures, Company Shop has also temporarily extended its membership to those in receipt of means tested benefits, including families with children receiving Free School Meals.

Steph McGinty, deputy managing director, Company Shop Group, said: “January is always a difficult time for many people, and the national lockdown and ongoing pandemic will put even more pressure on key worker members and families most in need. We have extended our membership temporarily so that we can support as many people as possible during this challenging time.

“We would encourage anyone eligible for membership or who has not shopped with us for a while to come into store to access some brilliant discounts which will really help to stretch family budgets.

“We are incredibly proud of those members who are working tirelessly on the front-line to support the national efforts, and would also like to thank all our hard-working colleagues across Company Shop who are keeping our shelves fully stocked and our stores safe.”

Superb event panned for Corby this June, lets hope it can go ahead!

https://www.northantstelegraph.co.uk/news/people/june-date-set-corby-pole-fair-double-celebration-queens-platinum-jubilee-3085762

The date for one of Corby’s most anticipated events has been revealed and it will be a double celebration bank holiday bonanza for the residents of the town.

Corby Pole Fair 2022, a tradition that takes place every 20 years, has been added to the town’s social calendar on Friday, June 3, 2022 – the second day of the four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

This date links the original granting of the Royal Charter to Corby by Queen Elizabeth I in 1568 with the bank holiday weekend making it an extra special occasion as Made With Many, a community-led arts programme which produces events and activities, co-ordinates the Pole.

he unique tradition comes around every 20 years, with the last Pole Fair last taking place in May 2002 on the Charter Field in Corby Old Village, attracting crowds of 30,000 to enjoy outdoor attractions, entertainment and of course, the reading of the Royal Charter at the three entrances to the village.

Pole Fairs in the past have used Corby’s Viking past to establish a traditional punishment of ‘riding the stang’ – men who had committed minor offences were carried astride an ash pole or ‘stang’ through the village and having insults or missiles thrown at them.

Corby’s Royal Charter was granted in 1568 by Elizabeth I. The Royal Charter contained six rights and is believed to have been granted by Elizabeth I for one of two reasons – in return for personal services to Sir Christopher Hatton, her favourite courtier or as a thank you to the men of Corby for rescuing her when she fell off her horse in Rockingham Forest.
