PARISH NEWS: APRIL/MAY

The latest edition of the Parish News has been printed, but the current restrictions on public life to control the spread of coronavirus mean that it is not at present possible to distribute copies in the normal way to households in Middleton, North Runcton and East Winch. It may be possible to resume deliveries if the restrictions are relaxed in time, but that seems unlikely.

A heart defribrillator has been installed at the Village Hall.
It is mounted on the end wall of the Hall - facing the road.
The yellow box is clearly visible and the defribrillator is available to use as necessary.


Guidance on how to use the machine are displayed on it.
The machine is safe to use & makes a diagnosis as to whether or not it is necessary to 'shock' a patient.
Note that if a patient is concious, breathing, talking, the defribrillator is not required. Its purpose is to re-start a heart that has stopped beating. If you are unable to discern a heartbeat then use the machine.

HOWEVER, even if you get it wrong, because the machine makes the diagnosis,
you cannot cause harm to a patient when using it.

THE MACHINE HAS BEEN FUNDED BY
THE RSPCA AND THE PARISH COUNCIL.
THE VILLAGE HALL TRUSTEES AGREED TO IT BEING INSTALLED AT THE HALL.

Littering and dog fouling survey

THIS SURVEY is now closed

A borough-wide review of dog fouling and littering is being undertaken to gain a full picture of where there are problem spots and how much of a problem it really is.

An online survey has been produced for residents, town and parish councils, schools and businesses to complete

Visit
www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/haveyoursay to provide your comments.

Cllr Ian Devereux, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: "We get a lot of anecdotal information about dog fouling and littering, so we are hoping that by asking specific questions about locations and times of offences we can start to identify where resources need to be targeted and also what local people can do to help.

"The more surveys that are completed, the better the picture we will get, so I would urge everyone to fill in the form, tell us what's happening in their area, and provide specific locations where possible."

The survey is open until the end of July - NOW CLOSED -

After that the results will be analysed and a report prepared for consideration by the council's Environment and Community panel.
