Easter is not far away and the village shop now has a selection of Easter cards. Along with these we have a range of "Two Bad Mice" porcelain mugs all with spring themed designs and attractively boxed Titchmarsh chocolate mint creams and chocolate mint crisps - both a nice alternative to the more traditional Easter egg.
Last Friday saw the village youth group members turn into creative florists for the evening. Thanks to Ruth Thompson-Partridge who supplied the flowers and an example display. The children showed off their creative flair and produced a wonderful array of mothers day flower arrangements to take home. We had a few spare arrangements so Tracey and Jess Jones took them over to the church. One display was laid at the grave of Miss Skinner who was a previous Headteacher at the village school.
We have been advised from Scope that they will be conducting a fundraising programme for Scope About Disability within the Northamptonshire Area from 3 April until 23 April 2017.
Just a quick note to remind you that tickets for Boobs and Brass are now on sale. The colourful all-lady brass band are making a welcome return to St Mary's Church on Saturday 13th May and if you want to see them you'd best get in quick. Tickets cost £10 each and include entry to the concert, a raffle and canapes. As you would expect from any event in Titchmarsh, there is also a bar.

A selection of results from the T2 Parish Plan have just been posted online on the Titchmarsh website. These are the first results from the questionnaire which villagers were asked to complete last year. With so much data to digest it has taken the small T2 team some considerable time to pull all the pieces together and start presenting the results in a way that makes the data informative.
Following the recent drop-in event at the Clubroom, villagers are now able to apply for the affodable homes under construction at Islington. Five of the affordable properties are available to rent and one property (3 bed house) is available on a shared ownership basis (part purchase/ part rent). All of the affordable homes will be managed by Northamptonshire Rural Housing Association and priority is given to applicants with a strong local connection to Titchmarsh, either through residency, employment or by having close relatives living in the village. Details of the local connection criteria are enshrined in a Section 106 Agreement which is part of the planning permission and should be read in conjunction with the Council’s Allocation policy.
