Re-siting the Defibrillator:
The Parish defibrillator has a temporary fixing to the side of the
tennis courts, pending its final resting place at the front entrance
to the pavilion. The cabinet is without electrical power at the
moment so the cabinet will not ‘glow’ at night but is fully
operative and can be used, if required. For those who use the App
‘Save a Life’ the position of the defibrillator remains unchanged
and as previously, the instruction is to call 999 and ask for the
ambulance service who will provide the code to open the cabinet and
take out the defibrillator.
At the request of a resident who has picked up rubbish dumped

land the landowner is responsible for the removal. Report to

address to also notify of pot holes.
