The subject for the photographic exhibition this year is ‘Architecture’.
Joye will be collecting names of the Scarecrow exhibits too.

The Subject for the Flower Festival in the Church will be ‘Celebrations’ and Ann will very soon be twisting the arm of previous kind people who have done an arrangement for her but would very much like to hear from any willing newcomers too.

Defibrilator Training


Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 09.11.11
Our Community defibrillator generously donated by British Heart Foundation is for the benefit of our Community. This would be needed in case of cardiac arrest when directed by the Emergency Services.
I personally know of 2 people (outside of Marston Montgomery) who are thankfully here today as a result of receiving CPR, within the last 14 months.

Every year 30,000 people suffer Cardiac Arrest out of Hospital. Less than 1 in 10 people survive.
In Norway where CPR is taught to all pupils in School 1 in 4 people survive.
If we achieve the same survival rates as Norway in this country we could save almost 5,000 lives every year.

Part of the agreement from BHF is to promote CPR training for the community which they have provided training kit, as per photo.
I have run a number of training sessions and am happy to put on further training /refresher covering CPR and use of defibrillator.
We have a training defibrillator provided by the village hall committee to assist training.
Alternatively, I'm aware many people receive training else where but if you would like to borrow training kit which includes DVD promoting CPR to use at home to teach family or refresh your skills it could be loaned  out. 
If your would like to attend hands on training, borrow the training

Village Hall Bins

Over recent months we have been aware that the Coronation Hall Bins have been used for Non Coronation Hall waste, most recently we have found a considerable section of carpet sticking out of the top of the General waste Bin and such instances prevent official use of the bin and also leaves the Hall looking untidy.

May we remind those who have been doing this that the Coronation Hall Bins are strictly for the use of the Coronation Hall and its related functions and not to act as an overflow for other peoples waste.

Thank You.

Village Hall Committee.
