EXTON PARISH COUNCIL MAY ELECTIONS
Villagers are sought who might like to stand for election on the 7th
May for our village parish council. Information is available from the
Clerk about duties and responsibilities of those elected. Every
candidate must have access to email as much correspondence takes
place through this medium. For those who wish to stand for election
you may submit a written statement about why you wish to stand and
your intended contribution to our community to the Clerk. This must be
in the form of an email with an attachment so as this may be posted on
the Exton web where it is hoped all potential councilors will place
statements for villagers to see.
The next parish council meeting is on the 1st April at 7 pm in the
village hall and everyone is welcome to attend. At the end there will be
a chance to talk to existing councilors if you wish.
You may have noticed from your new council tax bill that the increase
in Exton Parish Council precept appears excessive.
This is due to Exton P.C. having to budget £2000 to cover the possible cost of the Parish Council election in May. Should this money not be used for this purpose, it will of course be amended next year. Derek Palmer Exton P.C. Chairman... 01572 812121 .
APPLICATIONS FOR STALLS SHOULD BE MADE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, email or call email@example.com and an an application form will be sent. As in the previous two years some will prefer to have a ‘Table Top’ stall at their own garden gate – a donation would be appreciated as this will help the fundraising and towards the cost of printing the maps of the village. Suggested a minimum of £5. Toilets will be available as previously in the Village Hall. The map will show the positions of those wishing to be included and events and will be distributed to visitors. Once again I will be hoping for ‘man power’ setting up gazebos and the like and keeping an eye on the traffic and parking. Notices as before will ask for courteous and considerate parking. All enquiries 812233 All funds raised are for the VFEC. Let us hope for another enjoyable ‘Village day’. A

VILLAGE DEFIBRILLATOR Did you know we have a Defibrillator to assist with heart emergencies? Do you know where it is or how to access it? On Thursday 19 March a group of volunteers from within our community attended a training session with Steve Tummon, Paramedic. Those at the session were from a group of villagers who have registered their details with "Community Heartbeat" through our Parish Council. These people are within our community and are here to help you should you have to dial 999 because you suspect another person has a heart emergency. We would like to offer you the reassurance that there are villagers within our community who can come and help you while you wait for the ambulance to arrive. If you need help and you suspect someone has a heart emergency, first check D - Danger! Is it safe for you to help them? Re electrical accidents etc. R - Response? Do they respond to you? A - Airway. Is it clear of obstruction? B - Breathing. They should be making 2 breaths/10 seconds You are likely to be alone with the person, so call 999, and follow the operator's instructions. You may have to administer Chest Compressions. The ambulance service will ring one of our volunteers, who will collect the defibrillator and come and help you until the ambulance arrives. The defibrillator is in our village for us to use. Hopefully we will never have to, but it's there just in case. We hope that our village will continue to take ownership of the project and support anyone who needs help. If you would like to find out more, please contact the Parish Council. .................Sarah Linsell
