Update 4/10/19 –  Cllr Cleverly met SSE on site to discuss the reconnection works. It was agreed that in the first instance prior to works taking place, a back plate was required to be fitted in the kiosk for the SSE connection to be fitted to.  This will need to be in place by 16th October prior to SSE works commencing.  It was agreed at the PC meeting held 1st October for this to be organised and completed via Richard.

Update 11/09/19 –  Hopeful news!  SSE has booked a meeting on site with a member of the PC on 25th September to discuss the power supply reconnection, with a view to doing the ground works on the 16th October and the joining of supply on the 17th October.  If all goes well the PC can then request their electrician to fit the defibrillator soon after these dates depending on his work loads.

Update 28/9/19 – The project has been listed on the agenda for the next PC meeting (3/9/19).  The Clerk will request a payment from the Councillors in order to proceed with the reconnection of the electric supply.  As soon as this has been granted SSE will be instructed immediately to reconnect the power supply from the nearest lamp post at which point the Council’s elected electrician can begin to install the defibrillator.  The Councillors would like to thank you for your patience through this complicated project.

Update – 2/7/19 – The project has been delayed due to the electric supply having previously been disconnected from the telephone kiosk.  Both BT and SSE are both denying responsibility and the PC are endeavouring to get the main supply back to the kiosk so that installation of the defibrillator can take place.  The PC will continue to pursue the matter so that the project can be completed.  Any queries should be directed to the Parish Clerk at the following email address:

The Parish Council, with the support of CDC, has acquired a second defibrillator for the village. The first, purchased by the PC several years ago, is located at the Club.

Residents have frequently asked or one to be located nearer to the centre of the village, and we are delighted to announce that the location for the new defibrillator will be inside the ex telephone box – just as soon as it is renovated.

The PC owns the telephone box, but the maintenance of it is handled by the village charity. Clive Billing has been raising funds for the renovation via the charity, and the work is scheduled to complete very soon. In the meantime, the defibrillator is being held at The Malt House. Emergency contact is 824193.
