Life Support/Defibrillator training done :)

All of the group yesterday enjoyed their mornings training on life support and how the defibillator on the Church Hall wall actually works - its nice to know there are now 20+ people in the parish that feel confident on how to help any unconsious person should the need arise. Thanks to all who helped organise the morning and those who took the time to be trained.

Cooker Wanted.....

Do you have, or know of, an electric cooker that is no longer needed? The one in the Church Hall is on its last legs and a replacement in good order would be great! If so, please contact Nigel or Rosalyn on 01773 836137. Thank you so much!

Lottery Grant Success!

Brackenfield Village Association are delighted that their application for a grant of £386 towards the Life Support/Defibrillator Training on 28th April has been successful. This means that, with the donation of £200 from last year's Well Dressing, all costs have been covered for 20 people to take part in this certificated 3-hour course. One or two places may be available. Call Christine on 07813397076 if you are interested.

A recent medical incident, at the Plough Inn, gave rise to fetching the defibrillator from the Church Hall. Fortunately the emergency services arrived in good time, so it was not required and we understand the patient is recovering well.
