Here are this week’s snaps from events in and around Daventry.

Keith and Noreen Marlow will celebrate 50 years of marriage on Saturday . The pair, who own Casey’s Club, are inviting all members to their weekend of celebrations with proceeds going to Danetre Hospital.

Pupils at Weedon Bec Primary School have been rewarded for participating in a walk to school scheme with special badges. The scheme is to promote children being healthy as well as to relieve parking congestion.

A number of events have been happening in the town as part of Daventry Arts Festival. These have included art workshops at the Daventry campus of Northampton College, exhibitions, concerts and music events staged by young people and Daventry and District Housing.

Pupils at Long Buckby Infant School were treated to an out-of-this-world experience on Wednesday last week. The Mad Science team came in to teach the pupils about space and the solar system – with the help of a rocket launch!

Finally, students and staff from the Parker E-Act Academy worked with Year Six pupils at Ashby Fields Primary School on creating a Tree of Hope. The tree, which is the symbol of the school, was decorated with bottles containing the hopes of the Year Six pupils. It is planned that the tree will continue to be used by different year groups at the primary school in future. The joint work between the secondary and primary school is part of the enrichment project shared by the Parker Academy and its partner schools.
