  • to contact you in relation to local issues, services and events
  • We publish some personal information (names, emails, telephone numbers) as part of the various directories of local clubs and services on this site.

    How we Handle Personal Data

    The Parish Council, in common with all public bodies, has to appoint a Data Protection Officer.

    To minimise the costs of this to the Parish, the Council has chosen to use a shared service with other Councils and has appointed the Northamptonshire County Association of Local Councils (NCALC).

    If you need to contact our Data Protection Officer they can be reached as follows:
