Local Area Defibriiators.
A number of public access Defibrillators have recently been installed around the local area which are registered with the Yorkshire Ambulance twenty four hour Service.
For details of locations please see the file at the bottom of the page.
We understand that there is a unit on order for a futher Defibrillator, which will be installed at St Aidans Church Hall Oxspring.
As you are all aware there are a number of planters located around the village which are planted and cared for by local residents.
Presently there is one planter which has not been adopted by any residents.
The this is situated in the main square within the Willows and it would be nice if this was maintained by a resident living in that area.
An allowance can be claimed for plants and other materials towards the upkeep of each planter and each year they are entered into a competition and prizes awarded for those which are judge to be the best three.
if you would like to maintain this planter please contact the Parish Council at email: clerk@oxspring-parish
Village In Bloom and Village Gala 2019.
Following a lack of response for volunteers it has been decided not to hold either of these events in 2019.
