Down Your Way, for Mon 11th December

The next open residents meeting of the St. James Residents’ Association takes place on this Thursday 15th December at 7pm at the Doddridge Centre on St. James Road. As well as being able to meet your local councillors and police it is also the opportunity to raise any concerns that may be affecting you or that you are having trouble in resolving. Also on the agenda will be permit parking issues and the latest situation on that. We also have a guest speaker; Louise Tuffin Community Involvement Officer for the Great Outdoors Project, which is being run by the Wildlife Trust. Louise will be talking about their work on Stortons Pits (the old gravel pits) and other wildlife areas in Northampton and how local people can get involved. In addition there will be a free Christmas raffle for all those attending. To be won are some Quality Street, Biscuits, wine and other items. These prizes have been donated by local businessman and councillor,  Suresh Patel, Beacon Bingo, Councillor Terry Wire and the committee of the SJRA. Why not come along and try your luck?

Don’t forget, tomorrow Tuesday 13th, St. James Library will be hosting Carol singers at 2.00pm. The Choir from St. James CEVA primary school will be the Carol singers. Please come along and enjoy the singers and support your local library!
On Thursday 22nd December the Library will host a “Horrible Histories” Christmas event for  children 6-12 years for more details telephone the library during opening hours on 01604 751037 or e-mail:

The St. James library also has a job club on Wednesdays from 4-6pm, there is free information, advice and guidance given by Next Step advisors. So, if you need help job searching, building your CV, completing application forms, performing well at interviews and building confidence why not come along? Booking is essential and you can contact the library via the details above.

People who shop on-line can now give financial help to the residents association. Once you have registered online to help the SJRA at You can then shop online at your favourite retailers and whatever you purchase a percentage is given to the SJRA. You can also use the easysearch option to search for websites and by doing so each search generates a small donation to the SJRA. It doesn't cost you anything extra but will help the SJRA pay for associated costs of running an association.  Everyone is a winner! Find out more at and follow the links.

The committee of the St. James Residents’ Association would like to thank all our residents’, councillors, local police officers and local businesses for their support throughout the year and we wish to take this opportunity to wish you all, whether you celebrate it or not, a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
