There are now two active WMAS defibrillators linked to the WMAS Control Centre located in the parish. One is at Rowington Village Hall and the other is at Lowsonford Village Hall.

In an emergency, upon dialling 999, if it is thought that a defibrillator will be of help, the WMAS Control Centre will advise the caller of the location of the nearest defibrillator and give the code number which will allow the metal box to be opened and the defibrillator to be taken out in its carrying case.

Two First Aid courses have already taken place for local residents, one at Rowington and one at Lowsonford. If you did not attend one of these but would like to attend a short course in the future please let the Parish Council know.

The defibrillators are very straightforward to operate and the machine will talk the operator through every stage of the procedure.

Energy Warwickshire – top up your oil before prices rise!


With colder months just around the corner now is the time to think about topping up your oil tank and taking advantage of the lower oil prices that have been enjoyed recently.

We are delighted that for the fourth month running we have managed to achieve a per litre price below 50p. In August our members paid just 49.99 pence per litre, saving 4.51 pence per litre against the average. As a charity that works solely for the benefit of rural communities we are delighted with these results.

If you are reliant on heating oil and would like to join our members in making savings have a look at our dedicated website (www.energywarwickshire.org.uk) or contact us on 01789 472611. The syndicate is open to households, community groups and businesses across Warwickshire.
