The new defibrillators have been installed and are fully operational as from today. One is located inside the BT phone box (junction of Brookside Rd / Wharf Rd) and the other is on the outer wall of the Anchor Inn facing the car park.

It is hoped familiarisation training will be arranged for residents, but this is not possible at the moment due to the Covid-19 situation. However, you do not need to be trained to use a defibrillator – anyone can use it. There are clear instructions on how to attach the defibrillator pads. It then assesses the heart rhythm and will only instruct you to deliver a shock if it’s needed.

Charity Registration No. 1072612 (England & Wales) and SC043677 (Scotland)



A couple of years ago I gave my Dad a map of The Coleridge way a 51 mile walk from Lynmouth to Nether Stowey. When I gave the map to him it was given with the challenge of doing the walk with him in 24 hours. 

At the end of a very strange school year for all students we decided to mark the start of the official school holiday by joining up with 2 friends to walk this route in aid of UNICEF.   I chose this charity because not only does it do such amazing work world wide but it gives ideas about what every donation can achieve.

Here are some of the ideas that make me determined to complete this challenge.

  • £7 is enough for life saving salts for 20 children
  • £14 would buy polio vaccinations for 100 children
  • £18 pays for mosquito nets for 9 families
  • £30 would be enough for a baby to be born in a developing country safely
  • £55 is enough to vaccinate 500 children against Tetanus
  • £160 would help 40 students learn with a school in a box
  • £1472 funds a midwife and equipment for 50 births.

I am a child who sees myself as very lucky, born in a place with  beautiful, safe surroundings.  I want to do this walk in this place to help children far worse off, so they have a better chance in their futures whether that is through education, healthcare or the right to a safe birth. That is why I have chosen UNICEF – they make a difference where it is needed both in the UK and globally.
