Defibrillator Donations:

Following a number of incidents of late, the Cottesbrooke Social Club has decided to invest in a defibrillator for use by all in the village. It will be placed on the outside of the Village Hall should anyone need it. The cost for the defibrillator is ongoing, and we would very much appreciate any donations to cover rental and maintenance costs.

All donations gratefully received, both big or small. If you would like to make a donation, please bring it along to the Christmas Drinks & Nibbles or, if you are unable to attend, please let us know and we will happily collect it. It can also be dropped off at 13 Station Road to Meg Routhorn.
