All Saints Defibrillator:
All Saints Parish Councillors are delighted to announce that the parish is now the owner of a new Defibrillator, situated at the Village Hall. This equipment is designed to provide emergency resuscitation to anyone in need. The Clerk, Paul Hayward, will be arranging training for this equipment over the coming months but it must be pointed out that the AED (automated external defibrillator) is designed to be used even by someone with NO medical or First Aid training.
The Defibrillator was provided by the Parish Council in conjunction with Devon County Council Locality Funding and is registered with the South West Ambulance Service who will direct you to it in case of emergency need. Signs have been displayed around the parish marking its location.

EDDC ‘Pick It Up’ campaign
Click here for larger poster
The EDDC’s ‘Pick It Up’ campaign is a reminder about the responsibility for cleaning up dog fouling, that it is ultimately down to the owner or handler of the dog.
Witnesses: Another helpful matter is for any witnesses who see dog fouling and the owners not picking up to provide us with the following:
Full description of the dog
Male or Female owner
Exact Location of fouling
If there is a regular pattern for the dog walker, for example they walk their dog at around 08:30hrs each day, all this information will be useful so that we can target these people at specific times and create a window of opportunity to catch them.
If you wish to report any incidents please contact our Customer Service Centre on 01395 571517 and a call can be logged. This will be referred to the Environmental Health Dept and dealt with by an officer.

DITCHES AND DRAINS
From: All Saints Parish Council To: All parishioners
It has been widely reported that Devon County Council will need to make yet further Budget cuts of around £110,000,000 to services over the next few years. A very large proportion of this sum will be borne by the Highways Department.
In consequence, the Parish Council expects that, besides a great reduction in road maintenance, there will be a loss, at the very least, of many hours of the lengths-
The Parish Council is also endeavouring to ‘balance the budget’ without a big increase to the Precept. Therefore, we request farmers and others in this Parish whose land runs along any public highway to make sure please that all ditches and drains are kept clear, especially after hedge-
Please help to keep our Parish beautiful and most importantly safe.
