Following the confirmation of a small number of cases of coronavirus within the county, Public Health England, Northamptonshire County Council's Public Health team and the local NHS are working closely together in Northamptonshire to respond.

Thursday Market Stall Layout & One-Way System
Thursday market has 9 stalls;
- Fruit & Veg
- Household Goods
- Pet Food
We're getting used to queuing at supermarkets, we'll have to get used to queuing at shops...please observe the queuing and one-way system at Oundle's markets. Better a queue and a market, than no queue and NO market.
The one-way system entrance is at the St Osyth's end of the Market Place and once you have visited the stalls please exit near Tesco.
Both ends will be monitored by Council staff and social distance stickers or markers will be in place to ensure people stay 2 metres apart.
The Fruit & Veg stall is self-service, pay at the end of the stall. Some stalls will have contactless card payment if you do not want to pay with cash. Please only touch the produce you are planning to purchase and leave the market area when you have your shopping.
Please ensure you follow the safety guidelines when visiting the market and send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) is set to re-open its doors to the residents and businesses of the district following the coronavirus pandemic. It is anticipated that from Monday, 6 July, visitors who require a face-to-face appointment at ENC's Thrapston offices will be asked to book via an appointment system. More »
Anyone requesting a face-to-face service will be asked a series of questions to identify how staff can best help with their request, and minimise visits to Council offices where possible. If residents require an appointment, officers will book this for a convenient date and time and advise of the process for visiting the office.
With public health at the forefront of the changes to service provision, this interim process is designed to ensure maximum safety of both the public and frontline staff at ENC. Customers will be asked to adhere to safety measures in line with Government guidance.
Cllr Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council said:
"Whilst the re-opening of our offices has been a priority, we need to be mindful of public health and the safety of our frontline staff and residents. This interim measure is just the start of a recovery phase the council is going through and I want to thank our customers for adapting to the new way of working.
"I would like to thank the staff at ENC, in particular the frontline workers who have been assisting the residents and businesses of the district during the pandemic. The last few months have shown how resilient the council can be during a crisis and I'm incredibly proud of how we have handled this unprecedented time."
Council offices at The Rushden Centre and Fletton House in Oundle will remain closed for the time being as it is more difficult to make those offices Covid-safe. We will let everyone know when we have a definite re-opening date.
Customers are encouraged to contact the council using one of the following options to access our services while staying in the safety and comfort of their home:
- Go online at www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk
- Email email@example.com
- Telephone 01832 742000
Customers who require a face-to-face appointment should visit www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk/reopen or call 01832 742000 for further details and guidance on what is expected of them when visiting the offices. » Less

Young people with a desire to influence policing, fire and criminal justice in the county are encouraged to apply to the Northamptonshire Youth Commission – part of the Office of the Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner. More »
The OPFCC's first Youth Commission was launched in Summer 2019. The inaugural 20 members, all aged between 14 and 19, planned a variety of events to involve other young people in ways to support, challenge and inform the work of Northamptonshire Police and Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service.
Before the end of their one-year term, the Youth Commission held the 'Big Conversation', speaking to more than 1,100 young people from across Northamptonshire to find out what they thought about two key topics – violence and road safety. The programme of work they put in place to address the issues raised is now underway and recruitment is open for the second Youth Commission for 2020/21.
Youth Commission members must be prepared to get involved and express their views on a range of police, fire and crime issues affecting our communities. This is an important role, as it will help the Commissioner to understand the needs of local young people and to inform the decisions he takes.
Applicants must be aged between 14 and 19, or 24 if they have additional needs. They will need to be confident and commit to attending one session a month. Youth Commission members must be keen to get involved and represent their peers. In return, they will be able to develop their skills, gain experience and have the opportunity to help shape important decisions.
Recruitment will run from July 1 and July 31.
