We have a defibrillator located on the front wall of the Old School Hall in The Square. We really hope you will never have to use it, but should you need to, full instructions/directions for its use are on the front panel.
Preston Bissett has a Clothing Recycling Container located in the Recreation Park Carpark. Recycling clothes using this container means that not only will the Salvation Army receive much needed funds from the sale of these clothes, but they kindly give the village a percentage of sales; money which will be reinvested back into our community.

In much the same way as we encourage residents to clear the footpaths in the winter if we have snow, there are very few good reasons to prevent a resident living in an urban area with a 30mph speed limit from cutting the verge outside of their property. If you want to cut the grass then:
– Use a petrol mower if possible, if not then make sure your electric mower has a protected plug or is connected to a protected socket
– Make sure there are no big stones that could flick up and break windows, damage cars or hurt yourself or a passing pedestrian
– Stop mowing when somebody comes close
– If you want to collect the clippings then dispose of them responsibly. Leave the last cuts clippings in place, this will help to replenish the soils nutrients.
