Abington Park - A Brief History
Abington Park - Situated in Northampton Town Centre is the beating green heart for all communities in the local area. A fantastic family open space for all to use featuring 120 acres of green public land. The History of the park dates back to the doomsday book where the Manor House is featured as centre of the village. The park once owned by Lord Wantage was given to the council as a gift for public land with further land to the north acquired from others to give it the area it covers now. Abington Park was opened by Mayor Alderman Randall on 21st June 1897 in celebration of Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee.

I apologise for the lateness of these reports and Agenda but we have had had a manic couple of weeks.
As you should know we are very fortunate in having the Police and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire as our guest speaker. Stephen Mold will speak at 7.00pm and the business meeting will follow.
I attach the reports from officers. The Treasurer will bring hard copies of his report to the meeting. It would be very helpful if you could read these in advance and then we can take matters arising and questions more speedily at the meeting. Thank you.
We hope to see lots of you tomorrow!
