Notices of Motion

i)             Councillor Davenport to propose and Councillor Ashraf to second:


“This Council welcomes the 30th Anniversary of the Call Care Service which was set up in 1987.


The Call Care system is operated 365 days a year and 24 hours a day and responds to hundreds of daily alarm calls from sheltered housing tenants.  It allows vulnerable people to live life independently but can obtain assistance when needed.


This Council asks the Chief Executive to write to the Call Care staff to pass on our congratulations for their work and our acknowledgement of this important milestone.


This Council hopes to see the Call Care System to be in place for another 30 years”.



ii)            Councillor Birch to propose and Councillor Russell to second:


“This Council notes Refugee Week on 19 - 25 June 2017.


Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities.


This Council hopes refugee week is a great success across the UK.


This Council asks the relevant Cabinet Member to look at how Northampton can play a part in refugee week next year”.
