WHITESTONE PARISH MAGAZINE SUSPENDED

With the necessary lock down to control the spread of Covid19, it has been found necessary to temporarily suspend the production of the Whitestone Parish Magazine.

As you are aware, all the clubs and societies have stopped meeting for the present, the Parish Hall and the Church are closed and the Parish Council have suspended all meetings. Their reports represented the bulk of items reported in the Magazine.

Additionally, it was felt that collecting the Magazine from the printers, dropping off copies to the local distributers and delivering the Magazine to our subscribers could be considered ‘unnecessary journeys’ under the present rules.

Thank you for your support in the past and we hope the temporary suspension is not too long.


WHITESTONE PLAY PARK IS CLOSED

Whitestone Parish Council are following advice sent out by the Government and Teignbridge District Council regarding Play Parks. As a result we will unfortunately have to close the Crossways Play Park until further notice.

PORTABLE
DEFIBRILLATOR
NOW ACCESSIBLE
AT ANY TIME

Outdoor Defibrillator at Hall

Whitestone Parish Council have now commissioned the new outdoor defibrillator box which is situated at the entrance to the Parish Hall. This means that the defibrillator (AED) is now accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In the event of witnessing someone having a sudden cardiac arrest or suspected cardiac arrest, phone 999 immediately and request an ambulance. Seconds count - phone 999 FIRST.

Start chest compressions as directed by the Ambulance Service.

If another person is available, they may be able to collect the defibrillator (AED) from outside the Whitestone Parish Hall. They must tell the person on the other end of the 999 phone that there is a nearby defibrillator in Cabinet No: DC0191 at postcode: EX4 2JS. (These details are repeated on the outside of the cabinet). They will then be given the code to unlock the cabinet. No training is necessary to operate the defibrillator as it is fully automatic and 'speaks' to you with all the actions necessary.
