New Defibrillator in Abberton & Langenhoe
Thanks to Abberton and Langenhoe Parish Council for kindly providing a Defibrillator for public use at all times. It has been installed outside the entrance to the Community Shop.
The cabinet has a coded lock to keep it secure. As the Defibrillator has been registered with the East of England Ambulance Service, the code to open the cabinet is available by dialling 999 and asking for Ambulance.
During the opening hours of the Lion Corner Community Shop, the code is also available from the staff in the shop.
The Defibrillator is completely automatic and very easy to use – you just have to follow the clear voice prompts.
This is the second Defibrillator in Abberton & Langenhoe – the other one is located outside Abberton & District Cricket Club at the far end of Fingringhoe Road, Langenhoe.
FROM PUB TO COMMUNITY SHOP
The Lion Corner Community Shop is anticipated to open in September. We will need many unpaid volunteers to help in the shop on a regular basis and we ask you to apply.
Volunteers will be needed to assist in serving customers, general cleaning, maintenance and other important roles. We are recruiting a paid Shop Manager to run the shop. We will be working out all of the detail and arranging training for those who volunteer over the next few weeks prior to opening.
The Lion Corner Community Shop will:
stock the product range of most convenience shops
provide a welcoming community hub for the village
help to reduce social isolation
provide voluntary work opportunities for village residents of all ages and capabilities
be run by a manager and trained volunteers
