The evening was a great success and extremely well attended by 35 people! The event took the form of a workshop and involved all those present, with First Responders explaining various techniques associated with the Defibrillator. Residents were able to question and be assured of the efficacy of Defibrillator. The access to the equipment was fully explained and any fears about using it allayed.
There was a humorous presentation by David Reed – First Responder Coordinator for the Whittington area. There are still vacancies for First Responders – if anyone is interested, please contact Colin Hall.
The Parish Council have arranged a session with our local first responder, David Reed, to demonstrate, present and indeed elaborate on our defibrillator now situated on the Village Hall front elevation.
This FREE session will be held at 7:30 pm in the Village Hall on Thursday 10th January 2019. There will be refreshments available.

Friday 11th May at 7:30 pm at Whittington Village Hall – £3.00, with all proceeds going to Whittington Village Hall
During a six week visit to Sri Lanka earlier this year I tried to trace my father’s time there during World War II through a series of old black and white photos and postcards.
Throughout that journey Virginia and I explored the country’s wildlife sanctuaries, cave temples, ancient monuments, tea plantations, colonial heritage, war graves and (of course) its beaches. We met survivors of the 2004 Tsunami and the 25 year civil war that raged in that country.
I hope this talk will give a good insight in to Sri Lanka’s cultural history, wildlife and visitor attractions. Failing that there should be some artistic merit in some of the photography.
It would be great if you could make it to this fundraiser for the village hall. If you are likely to come could you let me know (it will help to decide how many seats to put out) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Further Update: the correct name for the Assembly is Meeting so this has now been updated to the Annual Parish Meeting. Also, the date has been changed to Monday 30th April at 7:00 pm.
Update: a further plea from the Parish Council for agenda items for the Parish Meeting. Last year there were no items on the agenda – it would be a shame if this were the case again.
Original post: The Annual Parish Assembly will take place on Monday 21st May 2018 at 6:45 pm. This is an open public meeting and will be followed by the Annual General Meeting at 7:30pm and then a Parish Council Meeting.
If any parishioners have agenda items for the Parish Meeting, please can they let Gillian Hodgson (Clerk to the Parish Council – email email@example.com).
