Defibrillator now 'Live'..
We thank the towns folk of Winslow that have allowed us to purchase this potentially life saving apparatus sited on the wall of the Fire Station.
If for any reason you need to access the defibrillator for an emergency simply call 999 in the normal way and they will advise you of a key code to open the box (whilst of course activating the normal emergency response).
The unit is simple to operate and will lead you through every stage with voice prompts. Do not worry you can not harm the patient and you could potentially save their lives.

The Beer is drunk...
The Lions Club of Winslow would like to say a big thank you to everyone who joined us in drinking for charity at our 10th Beer Festival, with many barrels emptied over the course of three sessions. Thanks you for your attendance it means that we can help redistribute nearly £9,000 to local charities and organisations.
With over forty barrels of varying beers and ciders, there was plenty of choice for everyone! We had beers ranging from the ever favourite Lancaster Bomber from Thwaites Brewery in Lancashire to Bright Nails, brewed by Vale Brewery specifically for our festival and honouring our Prime Sponsor, Bright Nails who have been main sponsor for all of our ten festivals!!
John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons and local MP opened our festival with the shouting of ‘Order, Order’ and encouraging everyone present to enjoy the beers that were on offer. We would also like to say thank you to Vale Brewery who again helped us to source the beers and ciders from various breweries up and down the country. Without them our festival would not happen.
With three 6 Nations games on Saturday afternoon, we were inundated with rugby fans who wanted to help us raise money for charity and watch an afternoon of rugby that will live long in the memory, with England not quite beating France in a nail-biting encounter.
Our final session on Saturday evening, gave plenty of people the chance to taste their favourite beers of the festival. Some of the most popular beers included Lancaster Bomber from Thwaites, Lion from Hook Norton Brewery and Steerage from Titanic Brewery.
We would like to say a final thank you to all of our barrel sponsors; we had more sponsors than ever before!
