New Mayor for Higham Ferrers

New Mayor for Higham Ferrers

On Monday 14th May at the Mayor Making Ceremony, Councillor Jason Smithers was elected as Mayor for 2018/19 for Higham Ferrers. Councillor Chris O'Rourke was elected as his Deputy.

Councillor Smithers said: -

"I would like to start by saying I'm so proud and honoured to have been selected to serve as the Mayor of Higham Ferrers. Higham is a lovely town to which I now consider to be my home. Having been raised and educated in Surrey I never would have thought that one day I would be a mayor for a town in Northamptonshire, but it just goes to show, you never know where life is going to take you. More »

On that note I want my year as your Mayor to be successful and productive for everybody. Therefore, I have decided that the Air Ambulance service will be my chosen charity as Mayor and would like everyone to help support me in raising money for this service which receives no government funding at all but offers a rapid response time to trauma and medical emergencies, which is frequently the difference between life and death. These individuals are true heroes of the modern day and deserve our respect and support.

I want to encourage you all to ask questions about your town and council, please come to our meetings to articulate any concerns or ideas you may have. If we can all work together we can achieve incredible things for our town and the upcoming generations.

Please feel free to contact at any time my contact details are on the town council's website, you can follow me on twitter @SmithersJason there will be many updates via this channel, so you can see what I'm doing whilst representing the council and the individuals of Higham.

Finally, I hope to meet as many of you around Higham as I can over this year, so please feel free to contact me, call me, or speak to me if you see me out and about, would love to hear your feedback and ideas." ‚Äč » Less

Dogs Off Lead Area Officially Opened

Dogs Off Lead Area Officially Opened

The Mayor of Higham Ferrers, Cllr Peter Tomas, formally opened the new 'Dogs Off Lead' area on Thursday 3rd May. The Mayor was joined at the opening by fellow Councillors and local dog owners.

The area is proving increasingly popular with dog owners who are bringing their dogs to exercise. The Council is receiving positive feedback and word is spreading that it is a good place to visit.

Zoe Cave of 'Angelic Dogs by Zoe' offers local pet services including dog walking, training and grooming. Zoe, who attended the opening, has been using the area regularly and is pleased the Town Council has been able to provide the facility and says 'It is a fabulous space for dogs to exercise and to play and for dog owners to meet up. The area is fenced so it provides confidence to owners to allow their dog to run off the lead in a safe environment.' More »

The area is located off Stanwick Road, just off the A6. The area is owned by the Town Council with the land handed to them in exchange for land taken for the construction of the A6. The legal work to complete the land transfer was finally completed in December 2016 and following this, boundary fencing was improved, a dog waste bin installed, signage erected and the area opened to the public.

Alongside exercise, dogs need time to play and company. At the new area they not only have the company of their owners but can meet fellow dogs. The Council encourage you to come and see the new area for yourselves and let your dogs have a good run around.

The area is located off Stanwick Road the other side of the A6. Can be accessed on foot by a footbridge near Mallard Close. » Less
