We are holding another concert in the village hall on Saturday April 14th. It is, as ever, focused on giving young players an opportunity to perform or sing in front of a large audience. We are currently looking for potential performers. We would very much like to know if there is anyone in the village of whom we are unaware who might like to be considered. If there are, then we will arrange for an audition date. If none from the village, then we will look more widely to villages in the surrounding area.
We have had a number of reports this week, and we would ask that you make all friends, family and neighbours aware:
"The Parish Council has recently purchased a defibrillator which went live on the 30th November and is situated in the Coronation Shelter in the Square.
Its intended use, is for any person, who dials 999 and requires life saving assistance.
Once in contact with the ambulance emergency service, the call centre will take details, if they think that by using the defibrillator, it would save a life they will then give you the access code to the box where the defibrillator is housed, followed by further instructions on how to operate it.
The defibrillator is fully automatic. It also has a switchable young person mode to allow it to be used on children from one year to eight year olds as well as the standard adult mode.
The defibrillator is so simple to use. Once the green button is pressed, it activates a voice which can be heard giving stage by stage instructions and prompts along with where the pads are to be placed on the casualty.
During the spring of next year the council be will looking to purchase a second defibrillator with financial help from our Country Councillor, this we hope will be placed in the redundant telephone box which the Council has recently purchased at Well's corner Owls Green."

Suffolk Police are asking people to hand in their guns, as they support a national surrender on firearms and ammunition.
It will run from 13 – 26 November 2017 in a bid to reduce the availability of illegal firearms to criminals, reduce the number of illegal firearms within local supply chains and ultimately reduce firearm offences in the county.
