BRUNEL’S GREAT SHIPS

Tickenham Church will be hosting an illustrated talk by PHILIP UNWIN on Saturday 25th November 2017 at 7.30 p.m.  Philip is a fount of knowledge about Brunel and his great achievements – including particularly the SS Great Britain and the (perhaps not so well known) SS Great Western and the SS Great Eastern.   Admission £10 to include refreshments. Please book to help with catering. Ring 01275 856289  or 07740 085 015

DEFIBRILLATOR TRAINING

Training in how to use the defibrillator confidently will be held on Thursday 4th May 2017 at the Village Hall at 7.30 p.m.  Although clear instructions are given when the defibrillator box is opened, this training will help you feel more confident and could be crucial in saving a life.    You never know when you might have to use the equipment – it has been used on several occasions – so please come and find out how to use this valuable resource.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN A MAJOR EMERGENCY?

It may never happen – BUT what if an aeroplane dropped from the sky, or we had very severe weather for a week with no electricity?  Well, we hope Tickenham will be prepared!  With the help of North Somerset Council, a ‘Community Resilience Plan’ has been put together with five teams to look after Flood, Feeding, Rest Centre & Welfare, Evacuation & Transport and Safety.  The teams will work with the Emergency Services to provide care and support for our residents.  Information about the Plan will be circulated to every house with the June Parish Magazine.  In the meantime, if you would like more information or to offer your assistance, please get in touch with Vena Prater on 01275 856289

ST GEORGE’S DAY CELEBRATION

Tickenham Parish Council signs up to the Parish Recycling Scheme

 

North Somerset Council’s Parish Recycling Scheme offers local councils part of a £120,000 pot to encourage them to boost their recycling rates. Tickenham is one of the latest councils to join the scheme.

We all need to think more about recycling. The Parish council needs to send a positive message to residents about recycling and is 100% behind the scheme.

The recycling scheme also includes events and involving local groups and Tickenham School is keen to be involved.

It is very likely that the North Somerset display vehicle will come to the March Village Market, giving residents more information about recycling. The roadshow will also provide the opportunity to bring small electrical items and small pieces of furniture to a local venue, as opposed to going to the recycling centre. These items will then be donated to a local charity.

Recycling pledge forms have been sent to every Tickenham household and we hope that everyone in Tickenham will show their support for the scheme and pledge to work harder at recycling.

Thank you.

Tickenham Parish Council
