North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) are encouraging residents to stay local this Easter and enjoy the attractions on their doorsteps.

Starting from this week, NNC will be showcasing a few of the attractions and beautiful locations available across North Northamptonshire and staying local over the Easter fortnight on the council’s social media channels, pointing people to partnering websites for more details.

North Northamptonshire boasts a rich array of attractions and heritage right on our doorsteps. With fuel and other costs rising, residents may be looking closer to home for days out and attractions to keep kids entertained over the Easter school holidays. I would encourage everyone, if you are not already, to follow our social media pages for local ideas and inspiration.Cllr Helen Howell, the council’s Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Sport, Leisure, Culture and Tourism
From fantastic country parks through to leisure facilities and our local high streets, North Northants has something for you, and we plan to showcase the hidden gems of our local area over the next few weeks. You really don’t need to travel too far this Easter to experience something new and different.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of NNC

Examples of activities taking place across North Northamptonshire include feeding the lambs at the Chester House Estate, Easter Egg trails at Stanwick Lakes and East Carlton Countryside Park and a holiday club at Lodge Park Sports Centre in Corby.
