Your Safety

In an emergency dial 999 or 112

For wheelchair loan see Village Hall page.




The Defibrillator is on the front wall of The Raven pub, in the centre of the village.


If you come across a patient in difficulty, call 999 and describe the symptoms to the Ambulance Service - they may tell you to fetch the defibrillator from the cabinet - IT IS UNLOCKED - JUST OPEN THE DOOR, GRAB THE PACK AND RETURN TO YOUR PATIENT.


Open the Pack and lift the lid - listen to the voice that will tell you what to do, and stay on the phone to the Ambulance Service too - they will guide you.


After you have used the defibrillator, tell us so we can service the equipment.


The Defibrillator is managed by the Parish Council, in partnership with South West Ambulance Service NHS Trust. Funding was generously provided by the Green Gardens Charity.
