TWO MOORS WAY CHARITY WALK
Well we did it!
Coast to coast in 7 days, what an adventure. We slept in a wide variety of places, a tent, a barn, a pub, a field and even a luxury horsebox! Ended up walking over 120 miles, with all our kit in rucksacks.
As we all know, Devon is a beautiful place and the two moors way is a brilliant way to see it. People were very kind to us on the route, with refreshments and accommodation. Hopefully we can tell everyone about our walk at a future social club.
The fundraising has gone very well, with lots of generous donations from the village, Tabby has already exceeded her target of £500 to help St Catherine's church roof and Young Devon.
We have kept the Just giving page open in case anyone else wishes to support these worthy causes, go to the just giving website and search for twomoorswaytabby. You can also donate at The Old Forge.

WHERE SHOULD THE DOG BINS GO?
Dog walkers of Whitestone, the Parish Council needs your help. The dog poo bin at the centre of the village has caused much controversy recently and as a result you are all enjoying the game of ‘where’s the bin this week!’
Now it’s time to find it a permanent home and we’d like you to have your say. It has previously been sited in and around the bus stop, but is now next to the plough at the top of Hill Lane. As there is no pavement here, is this the safest place for it? So, here’s where you come in.
Please tell us where you think would be a great place for it. There is a need for this bin in this area to keep our village clean and although the Parish Council have extra dog poo bins on order for new locations around the village, this is the one we are looking for your input on.
Please send your thoughts to email@example.com
Constructive comments only please.

PORTABLE DEFIBRILLATOR NOW ACCESSIBLE AT ANY TIME
Whitestone Parish Council provide a portable adult defibrillator stored in an outdoor cabinet 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: DC0620 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.
