David’s Christmas card competition

Cllr David Mackintosh has today announced the winner of his Christmas card competition for local primary school children in Ecton Brook and Rectory Farm to design the Christmas card used by David in the community.

Cllr Mackintosh received lots of entries for the competition but the winner is six-year-old Emma Riley from Ecton Brook Primary School who has won a gift voucher for The Royal & Derngate Theatres.

The winning design will be printed on over 3,000 cards which will be sent to people across the community.

Cllr Mackintosh said, “I send lots of Christmas cards each year to people across our community and I wanted to involve the local schools. It was hard to choose between all of the different designs but eventually Emma’s was the winning design. I hope Emma enjoys seeing her card in print and her trip to The Royal & Derngate.”

Bridleways Estate raised in Parliament

Philip Hollobone, MP for Kettering, has today raised the issue of the Bridleways Estate in Rectory Farm in Parliament during a debate on unadopted roads after meeting with Cllr David Mackintosh.

Since his election last June, David has been working to resolve issues surrounding the Bridleways Estate in Rectory Farm where roads cannot be adopted due to problems with how the estate was built. This has led to a number of delays with residents moving in. The Chronicle & Echo called the estate a ‘Ghost Town’.

Philip Hollobone MP said that Bridleways is “an important example of how the process is going wrong. There has been extensive coverage of this in the distinguished local newspaper, the Northampton Chronicle and Echo. I have spoken to Councillor David Mackintosh, who represents Ecton Brook ward who has been heavily involved in the issue.”
