West End Tennis Club has a Defibrillator

Banbury West End Tennis and Squash Club have purchased an AED (Automatic Electronic Defibrillator), the first in the village, I understand. The unit is designed to save lives in the event of a heart attack. In order to gain access to the unit, anyone assisting someone in cardiac arrest should phone 999, and the location and code to access the unit will be given to them, as well as instructions on caring for the patient. Now, we fully understand that this unit is remote from many areas in the village, and would expect a village of this size to have one, or two more in various spread out locations.

Adderbury Green Association

Request for support for the maintenance of the Adderbury Village Green
The Adderbury Village Green is undoubtedly one of the main focal points of our village. The Green is one of the major attractions of the village, one of which we can be proud and is enjoyed by many villagers who pass by on their travels.
You may or may not be aware that The Green is owned and maintained by a Trust known as the Adderbury Green Association with the cost of grass cutting shared with the Parish Council. Funds have run very low and the costs of the Adderbury Green Association include annual insurance, the cost of keeping the trees safe with necessary trimming and pruning, and the half share of regular grass cutting. Tree maintenance is required in 2018 and is likely to cost in excess of £1,500.
The Trustees are asking if all houses directly facing The Green could contribute £35 a year towards this cost, with other village households who appreciate the Green contributing £25 or whatever you are able to give. All contributions, for whatever amount, will be gratefully received. We will also be asking local businesses around The Green for a contribution. We will request funds in March/April each year and we hope that good support from all will enable us to keep the requested contribution at this modest level.
