Christmas is coming!!!

Never too early to think about Christmas and the Christmas Lights Group are already busy with the plans for this Christmas

For the last few years the Silver Band have kindly looked after the organising of the Christmas Lights but with increasing commitments they have handed over to a new team

The Switching on of the Christmas Lights will be on Sunday 1  December about 6.30pm, but first we need to raise some money; every year lights need replacing and money is needed to keep them burning bright, also the Switching on of the Lights needs funding, mince pies, hot chocolate mulled wine and so on

The Christmas Lights Group are holding a Quiz at The Old Inn on Friday evening 11 October and a Coffee Morning in the Band Room on Saturday 9 November

St Breward & District Community First Responders

The St Breward WI and the Parish Council are spearheading a campaign to raise the profile of the Community First Responders in the villages of St Breward, Blisland, St Mabyn and St Tudy. At the present time there is only one responder covering these four villages, which is woefully inadequate. The idea of the campaign is to let people know about the Community First Responders. They are not automatically supplied by the Ambulance Service or the NHS, but are volunteers who give their time, and St Breward & District Community First Responders need to recruit more volunteers to bring the team up to strength.

Have you ever had to call an ambulance? Have you ever had to sit helplessly waiting, not knowing what to do; worrying if the person is going to die before help comes? Or maybe you have been that person, feeling poorly, waiting for the comforting help of an ambulance crew, who could be more than 20 minutes away.

St Breward, Blisland, St Mabyn and St Tudy need you

Are you up for a challenge?

· Would you like to help people in your community?

· Can you give up some free time?

· Do you want to learn essential lifesaving skills?

· Do you hold a full, clean driving license?

· Are you in reasonably good health?

If you answered ‘yes’ to all of these questions, then you could be the person we are looking for.  Community First Responders are volunteers who support their local community by attending emergency calls ahead of an ambulance.  CFRs attend medical emergencies where it is essential for the patient to receive immediate life-saving care. No previous medical training is required as full training is provided.

A leaflet will be dropping through doors in the area in the next few days inviting you to take up the challenge, but please give it some thought now.

Contact Veronica Hill, 01208 851308 email veroh@brinternet.com, to take first steps. A meeting will be held in September to which you will be invited to find out more.

Christams Lights in St Breward – Bit of a crisis

For the last couple of years the Silver Band has taken on the organising of the Christmas lights at Row and the Switching on of the Lights event.  This event has featured the band playing, carol singing, visit of Father Christmas, gifts for children, mulled wine, hot chocolate mince pies – always a very popular evening in early December.
Due to ongoing commitments, the Band is no longer able to be responsible for the event and has asked the Parish Council to help promote the search for a group of people to take over organising this very popular event.  The Band has offered to play at any future event and will make the Band Room available for Father Christmas and Refreshments.

Come along to a meeting the Village Hall on Wednesday 18 September, commencing at 7.30pm where we will be working on ideas for Lighting up St Breward at Christmas

Pleae do not be deterred by thinking about the overall event, it is made up many of small tasks, ie making mulled wine and hot chocolate, organising mince pies, decorating the Band Room and so on – and of course the whole event could be organised completely differently – new people – new ideas and so on.
