A great Burns Night, 2019

The Village Green and associated play equipment is owned and maintained by the Buckhorn Weston Village Community Trust.

From time to time, we need to raise additional funds and a evening celebration of Burn’s Night has always proved to be a popular mid-winter event. This has to be done properly of course: a proper haggis, piper, a full recital of Burn’s “Address to a Haggis”, a three course meal, bar, all followed by some Scottish Reeling.

The slideshow below is just a brief memento of a great evening. Thanks to all who came to support us and to everyone who worked so hard to make it a memorable evening.

Thanks to Wendy for her photos. Hover with your mouse over the slides to freeze or use the left/right chevons to go back/forwards

Community First Aiders Call-down List

The BWVCT is circulating a list of people who are willing to respond to first aid incidents in our village and in some cases be contactable DAY or NIGHT to retrieve the defibrillator.   Please make sure you keep the leaflet that has been distributed throughout the village in a prominent position!

Please remember if the incident is serious to call 999 first!  In the case of a cardiac arrest/heart attack and you are more than 200 yards from the defibrillator, the 999 centre will NOT direct you there.  We urge you to make your own emergency plans with friends, neighbours or one of the contacts from our call-down list who will retrieve it for you if needed.  You should not, nor would you want to, leave a loved one if they are suffering a cardiac arrest!
