Summer Reading Challenge

Every year Northamptonshire Libraries deliver the Summer Reading Challenge, which challenges children to read 6 books during the summer holidays. It has been proven that children who don't continue reading during the summer have a lower reading age when they return to school in September than that before the summer. You can find out more about the challenge on our webpage: www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/src or on our facebook page: www.facebook.com/NorthamptonshireSRC More »

Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding Covid-19 we are unable to deliver this in the normal way and the challenge will be online this year. We are also unable to promote it I the normal way as we can't deliver school assemblies or hold events in the library. » Less

Children's Play Park

In accordance with Government advice, the Parish Council has agreed to open the children's play area in the park this Saturday 4th July.

Please note that Welford Parish Council does not clean the play equipment so families use it at their own risk. You are asked to

  • Maintain social distancing within the playground, according to the government's latest advice.
  • Bring wipes and other cleaning materials
  • Wash your hands before entering the playground and after you have finished. Use hand sanitiser often.

If the Government advice changes then the Council will follow that guidance. More »
