A Facebook page for the village has been set up
called Gotherington village. Its purpose is to facilitate communications in the
village and posts to it concerning village matters are encouraged. For example
the Wine Club will be using it to publicise future events and other societies
might like to consider doing the same.
Gotherington's Neighbourhood Development Plan
We will be asking residents to attend seminars and to complete questionnaires which, together with existing documents
such as the 2014 Parish Plan, the Village Design Statement and the Housing Needs Survey, will provide
the information needed to
complete our draft NDP for submission to Tewkesbury Borough Council by end of March 2015. Please give us your support.

For more information contact David Ward on
01242 675080 or any Parish Councillor.

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.
