NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN MEETING
The Parish Council are sponsoring a
Neighbourhood Plan. We cannot stop development in the village but a
Neighbourhood plan will give our community the ability to decide where any
development in Gotherington should take place. This is a big task and we want as
many people in the village to be involved as possible. Everyone has a say as it
could be your part of the village that is affected. To this end you are invited
to a meeting at the VILLAGE HALL on 11th SEPTEMBER at 7.30pm At this meeting Elin
Tattersall of Gloucestershire Rural Community Council will give a talk
introducing this subject and will answer questions on it.

Life Saving Equipment
The village now owns an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) which could
be used to save a life in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest. This can happen
to anyone whatever their age including children. The device is located on the
Rex Rhodes building and is accessible by dialling 999. Follow the link above to
see what action you would need to take if you were to come across someone in the
village who had suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. Please note that because the
equipment is intelligent and completely automatic it is impossible to hurt
anyone by using it but its use may save a life.
