Ambulance Service Community First Responders - REMINDER
The First Responders are still looking to recruit additional volunteers to the team. This does not require a great deal of time and can easily be arranged around your work/family/social commitments. However, there is a requirement to complete a local training programme in order to qualify. Responders currently cover weekday nights and all day at weekends and bank holidays. Even a small commitment would be helpful to them. If you are interested in joining or simply wish to know more about the service they provide, please contact David Brampton on 663561.

One of the issues to emerge from the recent Parish Plan Event in January was the continuing problem of dog waste in the village. The main problem seems to stem from visitors and it was felt that the location of the dog waste bins could be better advertised. IF YOU OWN A HOLIDAY LET IN THE VILLAGE OR USE YOUR SECOND HOME FOR FRIENDS AND VISITORS, PLEASE PRINT & DISPLAY THE ATTACHED MAP. More copies of the map are available from Councillor Sheldon at The Quarter House.
