Defibrillator Mapping Exercise – We need your help!

Kidsgrove Town Council is working to put together a map of all the defibrillators within our area. We are not only interested in the ones that are currently public access, but also those that are privately sited.
 
The results of the mapping exercise, which is being run working in conjunction with the Rotary Club, the First Responders and the Locality Action Partnership groups, will be shared publicly and also used to co-ordinate use of the defibrillators with the emergency services.
 
We would be very grateful if details could be sent to us to include location, whether or not its accessible to the public and person/group/business responsible.If the defibrillator is in a cabinet, it would also be useful to now whether a code is needed or not.
 
Please send the information to Kidsgrove Town Council:
email townclerk@kidsgrovetowncouncil.gov.uk
We really appreciate your help.

Become a Dementia Friend!

The Town Council would like to promote the Dementia Friendly initiative within Kidsgrove and its surrounds. Understanding the needs of sufferers is so important.

The sessions are free and open to everybody and we will especially welcome businesses and groups who may have customers and members that would benefit from staff who can understand their needs.

Maple Tree Court – Open Day

Yesterday, Deputy Mayor Cllr Amanda Cartwright with other Kidsgrove Town Councillors visited Maple Tree Court Care Home in Kidsgrove. Mark, the Kidsgrove Ranger, also attended.
Mandy and Shellie in the photograph are staff at the home. Councillors were given a full tour of the facility and got to meet many of the local residents. The non-for-profit company Anchor who run Maple Tree Court have offered to work more closely with Kidsgrove Town Council and they’ve offered to engage more with our community events.

Welcome to our new website!

Kidsgrove Town Council are pleased to announce that our new website is now live. We hope that our residents will find it a big improvement on the previous site. We do ask for some patience whilst we populate all the pages.

We plan to keep the site very much ‘live’ with regular updates. The details of all our meetings will be available along with agendas and minutes. Other Town Council news will be posted, in particular details of our events that we organise within the community often in partnership with the area’s Community Groups.

As well as the website, the Town Council maintains a Facebook page (see the box to the right for a link).

If anyone would like to sign up to receive periodic emails containing the Council’s news and details of events please use the link at the bottom of the page to sign up. These emails may sometimes include events organised by other organisations in Kidsgrove.

We plan to have a page in each edition of Kidsgrove News in the future to assist those with either no or limited internet access.
