    News on the Defibrillator

    As many of you will know from previous editions of the Newsletter, there is a

    group of people, led by Nicola Hibberd, trying to buy a defibrillator to be located at

    a convenient place in the village. The Newsletter and Village Hall Committee both

    strongly support this very worthwhile project. It could, literally, save lives.

    The current target is 2500 to cover purchase of a defibrillator and a special

    outside heated cabinet as well as installation. There will also be additional costs

    for training and information sessions and it is essential that there are funds

    available for replacement pads and for replacement batteries. The fund is already

    over 500.

    The Defibrillator Project team will be holding a Quiz Night on Friday June 6th at

    7.30pm at The Plough Inn in Marsham. All the money raised will go towards the

    Project so please come along and support this important venture. There will also

    be a raffle on the night with some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses.

    Teams can include up to 6 people. Tables will need to be booked in advance (there

    are limited numbers) by phoning or emailing Nicola Hibberd contact details

    below. Thank you to Lynne Phillippo and Kim Greensmith for their generous

    donations this month.

  • Letters to the Editor

    The letters in this section are published unedited and do not necessarily reflect the views of the

    editing committee. We see the Village Newsletter as a channel for people in the village to air their

    views positive and negative.

    Whilst the Village Hall Management Committee

    are happy for people in the village to occasionally

    park at the front of the hall they are also

    concerned that enough parking spaces are always

    available for users of the hall. The hall is in use

    most evenings (usually between 6.30 and 10.00)

    and therefore we would ask that people do not

    park there at those times. We understand that

    people may not know whether or not the hall is

    being used but perhaps the default position

    should be that it is being used in the evenings.

    Only people using the hall should park on the car

    park at the back.

    NEWS FROM MARSHAM PARISH COUNCIL An update from Marsham Parish Council

    Smell pollution from Wood Farm Composting, Marsham

    On the afternoon of Friday May 16th 2014, David Harrison (our local County Councillor) attended a meeting with

    senior managers at The Environment Agency headquarters in Norwich. A Marsham Parish Council representative was

    also present.

    At this meeting it was announced that the Environment Agency has formally and legally required the operator at

    Wood Farm (NEWS) to make a number of structural improvements to the Marsham site in the hope that this will

    make the composting operation compliant with the terms of its licence by the end of May 2014.

    If the smell nuisance from the site continues after this date (this includes complaints from the public continuing into

    June and beyond), The Environment Agency state that they will consider applying legal sanctions to the operation.

    We know from the April EA bulletin, which was circulated in the previous Village Newsletter, that this could mean

    anything from reducing the amount of waste that can be received to permit suspension.

    The Environment Agency has re-emphasised the importance of reporting distress or nuisance caused by odour from

    the site through the usual channels:-

    Freephone: 0800 80 70 60 (anytime day or night - and at any location)

    We now have a unique opportunity to make our complaints count. It is obviously doubly important that the

    residents of Marsham report each and every time they are bothered by the foul smell. Action now could bring about

    real improvements to our environment.

    Exercise your right to breathe clean air! Please help stop this terrible blight on our village.
