Cogenhoe - Theft of large pot plants

Cogenhoe - Theft of large pot plants

Sometime during the hours of darkness last night (Monday)at least two residents of Cogenhoe had large pot plants taken from their gardens. There was a considerable distance between the properties so I suspect the culprits had previously cruised the village looking for items to steal and returned under cover of darkness. As you will be aware, a few weeks ago several other garden thefts also occurred. More »

If this has happened to you too, please do inform the Police. The Police often stop people with a dubious looking cargo: If they are suspicious, they can arrest the carriers but without a report to link the property to a crime the culprits and goods would be released.

Did you witness anything unusual around the village at this time or over the last few days?

Did you see any person(s) in the area that looked suspicious?

Did you see any vehicle(s) that you were suspicious of?

Do you have CCTV which picked anything up that might relate to this?

If so, then please contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 or https://www.northants.police.uk/ro/report/ocr/af/how-to-report-a-crime/

You can also provide confidential information should you wish to remain anonymous. These calls can be made to the Independent Charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

101 is the number to use to report incidents and for general enquiries. In an emergency dial 999.

In an emergency, when there is a crime in progress or a life at risk, always call 999. » Less

All Areas - School Parking

All Areas - School Parking

We have received a number of complaints regarding traffic and parking outside our schools, we therefore are sending out this timely reminder;

  • Park with consideration to residents – do not block or overlap driveways.
  • Do not park on the corners of junctions as you reduce views and make it awkward for vehicles to safety turn into or out of a street.
  • Do not park across or impede pedestrian crossings or school zig-zag markings.
  • Do not drive along pavements when a road is blocked – be patient and wait for traffic to clear.
  • On congested routes plan ahead and do not proceed unless there is a clear space to use to give way to oncoming traffic or to allow traffic to give way to you.
  • Allow larger vehicles, such as buses, enough space to turn into or out of roads.
  • If possible join with other parents and share journeys to reduce the number of vehicles used and/or avoid congested routes.
  • Please be patient where a car has to cross a pavement to exit a carpark. The driver's view may be restricted and this will be further reduced by pedestrians congregating whilst waiting to pass.
  • Be aware that children do not easily judge the speed of traffic and may step out into the road. 20 or 30mph may be the limit but generally much slower speeds are required.
  • Pedestrians, especially with young children, should use the side of the road with the widest pathway and wherever possible protected from flowing traffic by barriers or parked cars. "Why should we have to cross and use the other side of the road?" – If it's the safest option in any situation then it's worth doing! A large number of children using a narrow path will always be at risk no matter how busy the road.


The above list is not exhaustive and there will be occasions where people make errors of judgement, especially under pressure. We are all human so please be patient. Police officers will monitor where they can, however there are a large number of schools across the South Northants area all experiencing the same issues. More »
