The BWVCT defibrillator is installed in a heated and alarmed cabinet on the front wall of The White House, next door to the Stapleton Arms. The cabinet is NOT locked.
IN THE FIRST INSTANCE ALWAYS CALL 999
A defibrillator can save lives if used as soon as possible after a heart has stopped beating on its own – full instructions on its use are given as soon as the defibrillator is switched on. Just open the door and take the Defibrillator in its case to the casualty. You do not need training to use it.
The BWVCT will be responsible for stopping the alarm and resetting the Defibrillator after it has been returned. We hope you never need to use the BWVCT Defibrillator but it is there if needed. Please ask if you need further advice on the use of a defibrillator.
The Buckhorn Weston Village Community Village Trust Annual General Meeting will take place on Friday 20th May 2016.
Residents are especially welcome to attend and are invited to contact any Trustee direct or via our website Contact Us page for full details.

All being under 19 years of age and all being amazing musical talents. Padfoot (folk duet, Gilingham School) opened the event, followed by Phillip White (soloist Gillingham School), Sam Hurst (soloist, Sturminster Newton), Kookaburra (yr 10 band from Gillingham school), Luke’s band provided some heavy from (from Gloucestershire) all wrapped up by Alma (from Poole college).

Our new website is now live. We’ll probably need quite a few updates and improvements over the coming months so of course your feedback will be very welcome.
If you’re planning any summer parties, don’t forget we have a party tent that you can borrow to help keep the rain away 🙂 .
