You may have noticed a bright yellow box located on a wall or inside a telephone box in surrounding villages and towns. These, as many people know, are defibrillators and are an essential piece of equipment for local community schemes to provide ‘Community Access Defibrillation’ (cPAD). The defibrillator will be sited at the Fox and Hounds and this has been made possible by the kind permission and help of the landlord, Jason Allen.
On Saturday 15th March the Parish Council will be planting around 500 trees to create a new woodland area on part of the 14 acres of Parish Council land next to the allotments. The Parish Council would greatly appreciate as many volunteers as possible to help plant the trees.
If you would like to volunteer your help, even if it is just for half an hour, please contact Charles Cade via the Parish Council contact form, or just turn up on the day from 10am with shovel in hand 🙂 at the entrance to the allotments behind the bowls club.
Lincolnshire Police are asking residents in the county if they are able to make knitted bears to donate some to them for consoling children.
In the past, if a child is involved in a road traffic collision, they would be given a free knitted bear to help keep them calm in a frightening experience. This then helps police and other emergency services deal with the accident.
However, the charity which used to knit and provide the bears — known as Angel Bears — is no longer in existence. This means Lincolnshire Police is running out of bears to give to children for free.
Police HQ is asking any knitting clubs or individuals in the county that would be willing to become part of their volunteer base to knit an annual supply of 500 bears to get in touch.
The force need enough for the next intake, required around September 2014. Bears need to be stuffed and knitted to a set pattern.
Liliane Coogan has the patterns for these teddy bears. Come along on a Thursday evening at the Fox and Hounds at 7.30pm and you can have a copy of the knitting patterns.
