New Resident Profiles & Things to do!

Happy Friday everyone. We’re well into the new year now – have your resolutions lasted so far?

Have you had a chance to read through our latest resident profiles from Oakley Vale residents? They provide two really interest perspectives on living in Oakley Vale.

One is from Claire Sager who has lived in Oakley Vale for 11 years; she describes Oakley Vale as “perfect for our children, feels safe, has as amazing community feel and within minutes of beautiful scenery.”

While another is from Sam Sheppard who moved to Oakley Vale six months ago – so is much more recent to the area! She shared similar views to Claire’s saying: “The way Oakley Vale has been designed with its green space and pretty landscape. The houses aren’t all on top of each other and there is a real family feel to the place.” 

It’s great to have these resident profiles, for us to see what Oakley Vale means to the people who live here. We have another profile coming next week from Emma Goodwin, who some of you with small children will know as the Principal at Oakley Vale Primary School! Having a mix of those who live, work and educate in the area featured on our page is amazing – and we’re always looking for more! So if you’d like to be featured on our page then let us know.

We’re also continuing to get some photos submitted to our competition which is brilliant – we have ten submissions that you can view on the page already and you can even begin casting your vote!

Now here’s what’s coming up in the area over the next week:

Learn Gaelic Songs w/ Deep Roots – Sat 13th – Mon 15th Jan – Would you like to learn traditional Gaelic songs? If so, join Deep Roots and Scottish singer and musician, Mary Ann Kennedy for a wonderful weekend of singing. Find out how to get involved on their Facebook page.

Jonathan Pie: Work in Progress – Tue 16th Jan – The Theatre @ Corby Cube – Jonathan Pie returns to the stage in 2018 with a brand new live show following a sell-out tour ending at The London Palladium, a show that was described as “electrifying” (Chortle), “blistering” (Evening Standard) and “desperately misjudged”. Get tickets.

Sarah Millican: Control Enthusiast – 19th Jan & 20th Jan – Sarah Millican is not a control freak, she’s a control enthusiast. She even controls her own insults, see? Do you arrange the nights out? Are you in charge of passports on holiday? Then so are you! This wildly popular comedian comes to Corby – get tickets!

Have a great weekend!
