severely damaged by fire.

firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the local police
who are already investigating the incident.
Damage to Main hall floor
The Main hall floor was refurbished in Aug 2016 but is already
showing signs of deterioration caused by inappropriate footwear.
An area near the serving hatch was especially damaged by
either studded sports shoes or badly worn stiletto heels.
Please ensure that further damage is prevented
by not allowing inappropriate footwear at your event.
New Defibrillator Installed
Tarporley Village has just been equipped with a heart defibrillator
which can be accessed by any member of the public on dialling 999.
The defibrillator is located in a yellow box on the North side wall
of the Centre and is illuminated by a light from dusk to dawn.
The cabinet is internally heated to keep the kit in working order.
The defibrillator and cabinet were made possible by a very
generous, anonymous donation, together with smaller donations
from Community Centre user groups - more info below
New Parking Restrictions
Start date 30th January 2017
Several groups have complained about the lack of available

New Defibrillator Installed
Our local First Responder Mr. Jeremy Mills gave much useful advice during the project, and acted as the liaison person with the
North West Ambulance Service. The defibrillator is now registered with the Ambulance Service control, and in the case of a 999
call relating to a collapsed patient, the caller will be told of the location and the keycode to gain access to the defibrillator.
The unit is "smart" and gives voice instructions, so any member of the public can use it.
Jeremy has offered to give training in resuscitation and defibrillator use to Community Centre users, with the objective
of ensuring that every group using the centre will include at least two trained personnel. The training is currently being organised.
The attached photo shows the defibrillator being installed in the cabinet by (left to right) Rob Hussey (NWAS),
Angela Yeates (Management Committee member), Linda Martin (Chair of Management Committee) and
Jeremy Mills (Tarporley First Responder). Linda has agreed to be the "Guardian" and Angela the "Deputy Guardian"
to routinely check the defibrillator and act as the liaison point with NWAS.
Management Committee members Anita Langford, Judith Oates and Tony Yeates were also present at the handover.
We would also like to extend our thanks to Robin Ford for tendering the installation work,
and to village electrician Brian Rathbone who installed the cabinet at short notice.
