The Parish Council has funded a third defib unit.

It is located on the external face of the rear wall of the entrance lobby (by the car park) to the Lion & Fiddle pub in Trowbridge Road.  The other two are located at the village hall in Whaddon Lane, and the ‘Tin Church’ in Horse Road.

The parish council is grateful to these premises for housing the units and paying for the running costs of the lighting and heating.

At its February meeting, the parish council intends to co-opt a new councillor to fill the casual vacancy which occurred when Cllr. Jameson moved out of the area.

Anyone interested is requested to contact the clerk, or any member of the council, for further information.
