Rutland High Sheriff’s Bike Ride & Family Fun Day

Family Fun Day & The High Sheriff’s Bike Ride Are Coming To Barrowden

This August Bank Holiday Monday – August 28th

Summer is well and truly here and this year there is a new event to add to the busy Barrowden calendar. A family fun day is being organised by Craig Mitchell, the newly appointed High Sheriff of Rutland (and Barrowden resident) to raise funds for the Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (a service that villagers have called upon twice in recent memory).

Added interest for this event is going to be the High Sheriff’s bike ride – an 8 mile course, supervised by marshals, taking in Rutland’s beautiful Welland Valley. Entry fees will all be donated to the Air Ambulance so get training now for this healthy and enjoyable cycle ride. There will even be a free mini circuit for younger children around the village if they want to take part too! Details about entering the Cycle ride will be on village email soon.

Whilst the cycle ride starts at 11.00am, the fun gets going on Barrowden Village Green at 12.00pm. A huge variety of attractions are being organised to appeal to everyone in the family. There will be children’s races, novelty races for the young at heart, a vintage car display, Petanque (Boulles) tuition and matches, burgers & hotdogs, tea & cakes, a Tombola, face painting, flip flop fling, Pimms, plant & cake stalls, a pillory, penalty shoot-out competition and many, many more activities for everyone to have a really fun afternoon for a tremendously worthwhile cause.

Make a note on your calendar, invite your family and friends and come on down for a great afternoon’s entertainment on Barrowden Village Green.

CPR and Defibrillator

There will be a talk on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and use of a defibrillator at the Community Centre at 7pm on Tuesday 25th July.

We hope that it never happens to us but suddenly a person collapses and perhaps you are the only one there. How to get help?

 

In an emergency always call 999 first.

North Luffenham has a defibrillator sited at the ‘The Fox’ but if you are on your own you cannot leave the person who has collapsed to go and get it.

The village has a Village Emergency Telephone System (VETS) and if you dial

01780 322070

This number enables one of the volunteers, who have had training in the use of the defibrillator, to be contacted quickly.

When you dial 01780 322070 you will hear the following message:

“Welcome to VETS. In a moment you will be connected to one of the village helpers. Please state clearly the assistance you require.”

One of the aim of the session is to update the VETS volunteers but all are welcome to learn more about CPR and defibrillators.

There will be an opportunity to donate to support VETS and the Community HeartBeat Trust.
