Defibrillator plan for Christleton

Plans are afoot for a Defibrillator to be installed in the telephone box at the corner of Birch Heath Lane, Danial Platt, who has been fund raising since the death of his mother from a heart attack, has been in dialogue with BT for several months.  Danial is hoping the project will be started in the next couple of months.  So far, he has raised approximately £1100 with promises of more donations, the total cost will be in the region of £1925. The Parish Council has given their support to Danial with this very worthwhile cause and would consider a request to top-up any shortfall with the cost.

Traffic Working Group Progress Update

Work continues and funding is in place to carry forward proposals for implementing measures to alleviate some of the traffic congestion and parking in the village centre.  A workshop with a Civic Architect has also been arranged to look for fundamental changes and understand what is possible to achieve to alleviate traffic issues to put forward their recommendations and anticipated costs of any proposals.
