Learn How to use an Automated External Defibrillator

AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR

How many times have you seen an AED and maybe wondered how to use it? They do give verbal instructions, but if you would like to learn more about what to do in an emergency and practice with an AED, we are holding courses in Hambledon. The course costs £20 and is run by St Barts. You can choose from Saturday 12th May (am or pm) or Saturday 19th May 2 to 5pm.

To book your place, please call Mary Grove on 01483 415815 or email grovemum@aol.com.

Volunteers needed for Oakhurst Cottage

Oakhurst Cottage – National Trust

We are currently recruiting for Oakhurst Cottage guides to join our friendly team of volunteers. Help us to tell the story of this historic cottage and give engaging tours to visitors from all over the world. This is a brilliant opportunity to make friends and learn all about a cottage with a history spanning over 400 years. We’re open to the public on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons between April and October and we ask that you are available at least once a fortnight to lend a hand. Applications are now open  and we look forward to hearing from you.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via oakhurstcottage@nationaltrust.org.uk/

Life Saving and AED Courses

Two years ago a number of villagers attended Life Saving and AED courses run by St Barts. All who attended agreed how valuable they were.

A further two courses have now been organised. They will be on Saturday 12 May (10-1pm or 2-5pm) and Saturday 19th May (2-5pm) and will be held in the Church Room. The cost will be £20 and, after expenses are taken out, the remainder pays for courses held in less well-off areas of London.

If you would be interested in attending, please contact Mary Grove on 01483 415815 or at grovemum@aol.com.

Phone Box Repaired, Bins Emptied, Beware Potholes…and Your Snow Photos

Following the recent disruptive weather, a number of local services were affected.

However, all is back to normal after the sub-zero temperatures and snowfall of last week. The Friday bin collection was carried out two days later, on Sunday morning. The parish-council-owned grit bin at the top of Woodlands Road has been refilled. The Milk and More doorstep delivery did not happen on Saturday but is now operating to schedule.

And the phone box outside the village shop, which had developed a fault, has been repaired by BT engineers.

Potholes remain a problem and are likely to be more so after the freeze and thaw. Please contact Surrey County Council to report them, using the link on this website which can be found by clicking on the Home button on the top menu.

Finally, a lot of people were out-and-about in the village taking photographs of the snow. If you would like to share them on this website, please do so by using the Submit a Photograph button on the right side of the opening page and following the instructions. They will then be added by the web team to the Gallery section, where some snow photographs are already available to view.
