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.

Do not worry about wasting police time - the police tell us that lots of small bits of local intelligence can help then build a bigger picture of illegal activity.
Edgmond falls within Low Flying Area (LFA) 9. You will routinely see and hear helicopters from RAF Shawbury undertaking exercises across our parish throughout the week. If you would like more information about this click here
A member of the Parish Council sits on the Helicopter Liaison Group. We are told that you can inform the RAF if there is a funeral in the village and that the helicopters will avoid the area for the duration. Please contact the RAF directly.
Nightime flying takes place once in a while - a weekly diary is posted on the RAF Shawbury website.
For information regarding low flying activity call 01939 251510 (Daytime) or 01939 250351 Extn 7227 (Night Time).

You may find it hard to believe that it is August and we are in the middle of so-called Summer.
We hope that you are able to have some time to relax or maybe you will be taking a holiday, either in this country or abroad.
The Parish Council does not meet during August, but we continue to move forward with local projects and we continue to represent the community as and when required.
Our Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents have now been received by Telford & Wrekin Council and we are awaiting their confirmation that we can move to Regulation 16.
I will keep you posted on the progress as it develops in the coming weeks.
