The Daventry Express (“The Gusher”) runs a weekly column “Neighbourhood News” to publish contributions from their village correspondents. I send my contribution by e-mail on Sunday evening to meet the editor’s deadline of 12 noon on the Monday before publication, every Thursday. Whilst I am asked to edit my contributions to be short and crisp, I am still subject to further editing to a common format and to meet the newspaper’s weekly space availability.

Let me know a couple of weeks in advance of any charitable, club or personal events so I can ask for a photographer to be available if needed and submit events to the WhatsOn? feature. Reports are also welcome after events, especially of personal milestones – weddings, high scores, anniversaries, even obituaries.

I try to record important village matters as they happen so they are on the public record for future historical research! Hence recent details about Staverton radio mast and the felling of trees in the woods!
