The village is very fortunate to have a defibrillator situation on the Millennium green. However, we have managed to secure funding from both our local turbines, The British Heart
Foundation, the County Councillors Community fund and the Amenities to enable us to recently purchase our second defibrillator from the British Heart Foundation which is situated outside of
the Village Hall. This will be a great contribution to the residential area at the top end of the village and of course any functions that take place in the village hall. The list of trained
responders will be the same for both defibrillators and is located next to them. The defibrillator is registered with the South Western Ambulance Service and all weekly and monthly checks will be
carried out throughout the year by Sandra Pipe, and training for use of the defibrator will be a joint training session for both defibrillators for the named responders.
Following extensive fund raising, a handsome new 'The Owl and the Pussy Cat' weather vane was erected on top of the Millennium Building clock tower with a splendidly refurbished clock courtesy of
volunteer members of the community.
The retaining wall for the Millennium Green was in imminent danger of
collapse. This has now been completely rebuilt to a very high standard, with assistance from Viridor towards the funding, and local builder Neil Marshall for completion of the work.
