Edgmond Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is situated in a cabinet on an external wall of the Village Hall.
It is for use by anyone. The machine will tell you what to do – you cannot hurt anyone.
If you think you need it in an emergency just follow the following steps:
First call 999 and if you can, continue basic first aid on the patient.
Send someone with a mobile phone to the village hall. When at the AED cabinet, ring 999, ask for the ambulance service and quote the number on the AED cabinet. The ambulance control will give you the code to open the cabinet if they consider use of the AED is suitable.
Take the AED to the patient and just follow the instructions.
TO DO SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.
YOU CANNOT MAKE THE PATIENT'S CONDITION WORSE – YOU MAY SAVE THEIR LIFE.
As we all know from the news bulletins that the ‘Covid19‘ pandemic is running its course throughout the country and sadly not too far from our parish, the coronavirus has affected peoples lives.
The social changes that have been introduced recently to stem the impact of the disease are unprecedented in modern times and as a consequence people will undoubtedly find themselves feeling uncertain about things.
There will inevitability be people in our parish who will feel vulnerable and might need help of some description.
Unfortunately not everyone will be able to read this message, as they are not online or using some social media platform to glean information pertinent to this area, however it might be useful to know that support for people is available locally.
In particular, in our parish, Yvonne Brunger has started a volunteer support group called ‘Edgmond Parish Prescription and Essential Shopping Service’, and this support group can be contacted between 10 - 12 midday and 3 - 5:30pm each day by calling 01952 811600.
Telford and Wrekin Council also offer support services for residents through their website:
or you can telephone them on 01952 382030. The lines to this number are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday and Sunday 9am to 1pm
I would like to ask people in the parish to be ‘good neighbours’ and keep a watchful eye out for people and carefully help out where they can. I strongly believe that this is already taking place.
Finally, kind regards to all and keep safe.
Chair to the Parish Council.

With the introduction of the GDP Regulations, and in common with businesses and other organisations, Edgmond Parish Council has had to look carefully at how it stores and processes personal data.
On 21st May 2018 the Council adopted several new policies in connection with the GDPR which places a much greater emphasis on transparency, openness and fairness than previous legislation required.
The Parish Council, as Data Controller, will ensure the principles of Data Protection legislation will be followed in the management of personal data and that employees and Councillors understand the requirements of the new legislation.
The Clerk (as Data Processor) will follow the underlying principles that personal data:
(a) Must be processed lawfully, fairly & transparently.
(b) Is only used for a specific processing purposes that the data subject has been made aware of and no other, without further consent.
(c) Should be adequate, relevant and limited.
(d) Must be accurate and where necessary kept up to date.
(e) Should not be stored for longer than is necessary, and that storage is safe and secure.
(f) Should be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security and protection.
