It was so good to be at the opening of The Refill Shop and The Wine Room at The Yards on Saturday to celebrate May Day with Labour candidates for the coming elections Keli Watts, Cindy Wrighting, Anne Lee, Adam Balmer, Andy Byatt, John Padwick and Clark Mitchell. And great to see our design supremo Louise Verity, too.
The whole place was buzzing and the atmosphere was brilliant. Burger Mania and Spaghetti Rock provided us with delicious food and the weather was kind, for once. It would be so good to keep this support going and help The Yards become a success story for businesses like Illicit [for all things skateboard] that really deserve to thrive.
Kettering really needs to welcome small independent traders and to support them - let’s hope the new Town Council and North Northamptonshire unitary council can do just this.

The Ise Lodge is where Jane lived for twenty five years and brought up her family. She still lives in the Ise Division. She believes Kettering could be a better, livelier and cleaner place to live: one that we can be proud of. She believes that we need our own town swimming pool to educate our children for safety; that we need a town centre that can thrive and grow, to attract businesses, and for people to want to shop there. She is interested in helping the community with their issues and problems, and is concerned about the green issues that affect everyone’s lives.
