Community Shield Award 2019

Congratulations to Craig Coppin, Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator and winner of the Community Shield 2019.

Craig has been overseeing the Potterspury Neighbourhood Watch Group for many years and has built up excellent relationships with the local police, as well as village residents. He is a reassuring presence throughout the village, who passes on vital information about crime prevention and goes out of his way to ensure that Potterspury is kept well-informed about local incidents.

Good Neighbour Award 2018

The Potterspury Good Neighbour Award was launched earlier this year. We asked residents to nominate anyone in the village who had made a real difference to the lives of others and were delighted to receive six nominations for both individuals and community groups.

Chairman Steve Parkin congratulates Linden Boothby.

The Parish Council are pleased to award the inaugural prize to Pottersheart, the crafting group run by Linden and John Boothby. Pottersheart runs a popular drop-in session in the Village Hall, which attracts residents of all ages who join in with the crafting activities or stop by to enjoy coffee and cake

Many of the craft items are sold and the funds support the other half of Pottersheart, the adult education charity in Kenya.

It’s a wonderful scheme that does a great deal for the Potterspury community – congratulations to Linden and John.

Join in with Pottersheart’s activities every Monday in the Village Hall from 10.00–12.00.
