Public access defibrillator

The Parish Council would like to raise enough money to buy one or more defibrillators to be located within the village for use in an emergency.  Each defibrillator, including the cabinet that it would be housed in, costs approximately £1400.  In the event of somebody having a cardiac arrest, a member of the public would dial 999 and be told where the nearest defibrillator is and the code number needed to gain access to the machine.  These can be used by anybody, as the machine tells you what to do and the operator would stay on the phone to assist you if needed while an emergency vehicle is on its way to you.

In order to raise sufficient funds to purchase this equipment we will require contributions from residents and village organisations towards the cost.  Donations, or pledges, can be made either personally at the Parish Council office or by email [email protected]. We would also welcome comments and suggestions of suitable places within the village, and ideas for fundraising,

Kidlington Library – temporary closure

Kidlington library will be closed from 15th September until 8th November inclusive due to essential building works at Ron Groves House. The works will affect the front of the whole building on the ground floor, including Day services, as well as the library. The library will reopen on Monday 10th November. Customers will be able to use neighbouring libraries, but we are also providing a weekly mobile library service on Fridays from 26th September to 31st October inclusive. The mobile library will be parked in Exeter Hall car park, and we are very grateful to the Parish Council for giving us permission to do this, thus enabling us to provide a limited service locally. Some temporary amendments will need to be made to the mobile library’s timetable to allow this. Details of the visit times will be on the Kidlington library page of the County Council website and on posters within the library. The mobile will visit 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. on 26th Sept and 9.30 a.m. – 12 noon and 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. on 3rd October. It will then alternate between half-day and full-day visits through until 31st October.
