Welcome to the website of Overthorpe Parish Council, Northamptonshire. This website has been developed to provide the community with useful information about what is happening within the Parish.
In this section, you can find out who is on the Parish Council and about what is being discussed at the Parish Council meetings. You can also send in any comments you have to the Parish Council.
Following on from last year’s successful litter picking day within the village and surrounding roads, we would like to invite you to meet again on Saturday 29th August 2020 at 10:00am at the postbox in the centre of the village. Bring some bin bags and gloves. Yellow reflective vests will be supplied.
Last year we collected approx 18 bin bags of rubbish from the village roads and hedgerows. Hopefully a similar amount of litter has not built up again over the past 12 months but some parts of our village do appear favourite drop points for litterbugs.
Making Overthorpe a Wildlife Friendly Village
The UK’s wildlife is struggling. In the last 20 years the number of hedgehogs in Great Britain has halved, 95% of turtle doves have disappeared and over 60 species of wildflowers have gone extinct in Oxfordshire alone. But it isn’t too late! Together we can make a big difference by making Overthorpe a wildlife-friendly village!

The last 10 days have seen rapid changes in advice and instruction from Government and Local Authorities, alongside an increasing number of local initiatives in response to Covid-19.
Firstly, we would like to acknowledge the actions of many residents who have already taken action, either by contacting their neighbours to offer assistance to those in self-isolation, or to get involved with groups co-ordinating support. Thank you for all your efforts.
Your Parish Council cannot provide advice on Covid-19 or updates on restrictions imposed by Government. In the first instance, changes are happening too fast for us to keep you informed. Please refer to the NHS website 111.NHS for advice. You should obtain other information from trusted websites such as BBC News - How Do I Stay Safe?.
As part of The Great British Spring Clean Cllr Cavanagh organised a litter picking day in Overthorpe on Saturday 30th March 2019. A number of parishioners kindly offered to help with the litter pick and the event was a great success with a large amount of litter removed from the village. The parish council would like to thank all those involved for their help.
