MONTHLY COFFEE MORNINGS
Regrettably, it has been decided to end the coffee mornings 
The numbers of those attending no longer make it viable, despite trying a different day.  Initially we were able to offer the opportunity for people to still meet up regularly and hopefully now The Exeter Inn has reopened this is still going to happen. As soon as possible the small profit will be handed to the Horticultural Show Committee. We have gone some way to achieving the aim of giving people the opportunity to meet and chat with coffee and cake while the pub was closed. Thank you to all who have given their time to bake and serve and to the helpers who set out tables and chairs, and those who put them away afterwards. 
An important Thank You also, to all who supported this event.

PARISH COUNCIL
PARISH COUNCIL  NEXT MEETING in Chittlehamholt Village Hall Monday 29 Oct @ 7.30

Information
First Aid & Support – would you be interested in training?
The Parish Council has recently secured an Air Ambulance Night Landing site on Launds Playing Field and purchased an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) deployed in the entrance to the Village Hall.  On Saturday 9th November 2019, we have organised two 3-hour training sessions for parishioners in the use of the AED and associated resuscitation techniques.

Training will be delivered by SW First Aid Support and Training. This is a group of volunteers based in Great Torrington and founded by Frank Bath. Frank is a Staff Nurse with both experience in A & E and minor injuries environment. He has qualifications which include Heart Failure Management, Immediate Life Support, Flight Nursing, Care of the Critically Ill Patient and Teaching. For more information about Frank and his team please visit www.swfast.co.uk

Although we need to give priority to parishioners to be included on a list of those people who would be called upon in an emergency, there may be spare places for other people interested in this training on the 9th November or in the future. If you are interested in this training - please e-mail clerk@cswparish.org.uk or sign up in the Village Shop. 

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service – a consultation process which relates to proposed changes to service delivery is now underway. The consultation runs until 22 September. For further information go to  http://bit.ly/DSFRSconsult to have your say.

POLICE ALERT - BE AWARE!
Rural Break-Ins and Thefts
12th Swpt
Large amount of tack stolen from Landkey and Swimbridge

10th Sept
In the last 10 days, there have been a spate of Break-ins and Thefts to outbuildings, garages and barns in the Tiverton and Crediton area. These have been overnight and a vehicle must have been used. Chainsaws and Strimmers are the targeted property. Many items were taken from unsecured or open buildings. It is highly possible the South Molton area will be in the sights of these thieves. Please consider your security, let's make it difficult for them. If you think a crime is in progress then don't hesitate to call 999.

If you wish the shop to maintain 
its current opening hours we need your help!
Our team of volunteers who run the shop have been depleted due to various unplanned events.  The shop may have to close for periods if we do not have sufficient volunteers to cover our advertised opening times. We are proud that our little shop supports the local area, and we are asking for your help (even if it is short term)  to cover the shortage of volunteers.  If you can help please contact Heather Baker on 540 196

North Devon is recognised by UNESCO as the UK’s first modern Biosphere Reserve. However, the environment here is under intense pressure from rapid development and intensive land use. Nature is dwindling fast and needs urgent action. North Devon’s conservation groups are collectively planning to launch a new Pledge for Nature! initiative in Autumn 2019 more information here
