Fundraising is currently taking place to raise money to install a second defibrillator in the village. The current defibrillator is already positioned at the garage and the plan is put the next one at the village hall.

With the increased number of people now using the Village Hall it is important there is an AED in close proximity. The chances of survival from sudden cardiac arrest decreases 10% for every minute that passes. To get from the Hall to the garage and utilise the AED would take 8 minutes. With an AED sited at the Hall that 8 minutes could be cut to 4 minutes or less thereby increasing the chances of survival by 50%.

Thanks to generous donations and pledges from Curry Rivel Live, Crewkerne Lions, Langport and Somerton Rotary and the generosity of local people, we are approaching the figure of £500, almost halfway to the target of £1200.

Please go to the following link to donate: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/curryrivelvillagehall. Or you can also donate by contacting Roger Hampton 01458 741606 or Tony Greenaway on 252495.

There is no doubting how vital AEDs can be in saving-lives.

The Council Plan 2016 — 2021 sets out what the Council want to achieve in support of its vision for South Somerset and includes five key areas: quality cost effective services, economy, environment, homes and health and communities. Under the homes initiative a public consultation has commenced for the revision of the South Somerset Local Plan, as you may remember the previous plan became defunct only six months into its existence as it failed to support the five-year housing supply.

As you will be aware from articles in this newsletter and the website the Curry Rivel Parish Council are looking for its residents to give their views on how to shape the future of the village. This could include your opinions on housing, employment, infrastructure, highways, traffic and parking. By sending your views directly to tgreenaway51@gmail.com or going on www.curryrivel.org.uk and completing the form online not only will your comments count towards taking control of our village for future decades but will also engage and influence the overall South Somerset Local Plan.
