Defibrillators for Little Paxton

Little Paxton Parish Council has successfully been awarded a £8097 Big Lottery - Awards for All grant to install three community public access defibrillators (CPADs) in Little Paxton.


The CPADs have now been installed in three key locations in the village- on the external wall outside the village hall, on the external wall beside Costcutter- The Parkway and on the external wall at the entrance of Skipper Way.


Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said, 'The Council has been working with the Community Heartbeat Trust to install the life saving equipment in Little Paxton'.

How do you access the CPAD's?

First of all you must dial 999, the emergency services will advise the location of the nearest CPAD and the box code. The defibrillator is a small mobile device and it gives verbal instructions on its use- it will speak to you. They are very easy to use and are designed to only shock when it detects no heart beat.

If there is a heartbeat, the CPAD will not provide an electric shock.

Chairman of the Council, Cllr Jean Matheson said' As part of the grant application, the Council will be providing six free awareness sessions over the next few weeks to explain how the equipment works and to give residents confidence in using a defibrillator. The awareness sessions will be run by the Community Heartbeat Trust and we would like to encourage as many residents as possible to attend.'

The Big Lottery Fund supports the aspirations of people who want to make life better for their communities across the UK. We are responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by the National Lottery for good causes and invest over £650 million a year in projects big and small in health, education, environment and charitable purposes.

Since June 2004 we have awarded over £8 billion to projects that make a difference to people and communities in need, from early years intervention to commemorative travel funding for World War Two veterans.

Cold Calling- Call Cops

We've all heard about elderly or vulnerable people who've been conned by callous rogue tradesmen. Not only do these con men - and women - leave their victims out of pocket, they also cause red faces, feelings of embarrassment and shame that they've been duped.

These criminals often get away scot-free as humiliated victims feel reluctant to report the incident to police. Little Paxton Parish Council are calling on villagers to re-assure victims and to help the Police to bring these doorstep thieves to book.

Parish Clerk, Jenny Gellatly said: 'There's a concern locally about these crimes which damage the confidence and wellbeing of the most vulnerable section of our community. The Council would like to encourage anyone who is a victim of this sort of theft to report it to police where they'll find a supportive response as well as signposting to any help they need'.

Please call the Police on Tel 101 or in an emergency Tel 999

Commemorative Benches

In August 2014, Little Paxton Parish Council planted an English Oak tree and unveiled a plaque to commemorate all those who gave their lives serving their country in World War 1. This coincided with the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War.

Twelve months on, the Parish Council has installed two commemorative benches beside the plaque.

Cllr Jeanette Cleaver said, 'A village resident who attended the plaque unveiling and whose family fought in the WW1, made a suggestion to the Council to install seating near the bronze plaque. The Council is delighted to be able to play its part in providing this facility.'

Located on Samuel Jones Crescent, the two benches were funded by Little Paxton Parish Council and CHS Group.
