“We are dedicated to working with our business community and creating opportunities to showcase the incredible employers we have in West Northamptonshire as much as possible.

Councillor Jane Birch, Leader of Northampton Town Council and Chair of the Community Services Committee, said:
“This weekend is a wonderful opportunity for us to witness the Coronation Service and along with our partner organisations, join in celebrating our diverse and multi-cultural communities. The events of the weekend are around families and communities, as well as The Big Lunch on Sunday there is The Big Help Out on Monday to highlight the positive impact that volunteering has on communities. We hope you will be able to join us.”
