Empowering Parish and Town Councils in Northamptonshire

The History of Northants CALC

The History of Northants CALC

The Northamptonshire County Association of Local Councils - as it is called now - began in 1947. For 75 years it has served parish and town councils and parish meetings in Northamptonshire, and has grown from humble beginnings into a modern, progressive, and influential Association.

The board of directors commissioned a history to be written in 2012 by a recently-retired director, Eric Franklin, who is a local historian in Thrapston. To celebrate the 75th Anniversary, Eric was approached again to write an update, and today, to coincide with the Association's 75th Annual Conference in Kettering, the updated history is formally published.
