Remember to sign up for defibrillator training!

Reminder that there are still places available on the defibrillator training course at Feniton Primary School.

Some of the children in years 3–6 are being trained during the day and the school has been able to secure an extra training session on:

Friday, 19 May at 4 p.m.

Call the school as soon as possible on 01404 850303 to get on this FREE course or register your interest in a future course.

The community defibrillator is in place … we now need as many people as possible to know how to use it.

More information here …

Come on! There’s nothing to be squeamish about … the training is very simple!

County Council elections this week!

County Council elections are due to take place this Thursday, 4 May.

It would be encouraging if we had received election literature from all the candidates, but sadly candidate apathy seems to have set in.

At our house, we have only received one election leaflet and haven’t been doorstepped by a single candidate. Comments on the Feniton Focus facebook page seem to show that it’s the same right across the area.

Recent changes to the boundaries of the county council division means that the electorate in Feniton, Buckerell and Gittisham will no longer be represented by the indefatigable Cllr Claire Wright. Instead these three villages have been incorporated into the new division of ‘Feniton & Honiton’.

The choice for those who live in ‘Feniton & Honiton’ is:

  • Andrew Blackwell, Labour
  • David Cox, LibDem
  • Graham Smith, UKIP
  • Phil Twiss, Conservative

Polling stations are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday 4 May, and the results of the poll will be known during Friday.
