Another blustery week in Oakley Vale!

Happy Friday everyone!

Another week has just flown (or rather blustered with this wind!) by in a flash. We hope it’s been a good week for you and you’re looking forward to another great weekend – maybe watching the last of another brilliant Six Nations?

As always in our blogs, we like to direct you to different parts of our website – because sometimes a blog like this is the first time you’ve visited the site! So here’s a few pages you should keep an eye on:

  • What’s On in Oakley Vale? – Find out about all of the new and exciting events and activities taking place in Oakley Vale – view by month, and see recurring weekly classes at any time. If you’ve got an event, let us know!
  • Houses for Sale – Perhaps you’re visiting our website because you’re thinking of moving to the area? Well our Houses for Sale page has all the information you need on the latest developments in the area!
  • Photo of the Month Oakley Vale has the benefit of being set amongst some beautiful land – with gorgeous walks just a stone’s throw away. We want local residents and visitors to submit their photos to have a chance of being featured on our website and social media!

People of Oakley Vale

You may have noticed investigating our website that we have an I Love It Here page. This is where we have invited the people who make Oakley Vale what it is, to tell us why they love living and working in the community.

It just so happens that one of the residents profiled is Claire Sager – who won our latest photo competition! Here’s a snippet of what she had to say about Oakley Vale:

“It is perfect for our children, feels safe, has as amazing community feel and within minutes of beautiful scenery. I love landscape and nature photography and Oakley Vale is an ideal base to venture with the kids. The people of Oakley Vale / Corby are amazing, generous and kind-hearted.”

Take a look at the page to find all of our profiles – https://www.oakleyvale.com/get-involved/i-love-it-here/
