Getting to know our businesses

There are lots of exciting businesses in Oakley Vale too! Last month we heard from Lisa Tye, Owner of Spirit, Body and Mind who had lots to share on life in Oakley Vale. She said:

I love being in such a quiet location but still near enough to a town for easy access to pubs and shopping. You can take walks to the lakes or to the woods behind us too. People in Corby are friendly and open, it has been a pleasure living and working here.

Still chance to enter the photo competition

As I am sure you will know by now, we are running a photo competition for the best picture that really captures the spirit of life in Oakley Vale! Have you taken any great photos recently? If so, we want to see them and will be giving £50 to the winner.

The theme is winter and the deadline is not until the end of February so you still have plenty of time. We are also going to match that £50 prize with a similar donation to the Oakley Vale Community Association. So what are you waiting for, get snapping and good luck!
