Volunteer for Christmas Fest 2018
Due to the 'retirement' of some members of the Christmas Fest Committee, who have been involved in the event since its inception, there is an urgent need for at least two new volunteers to take up the challenge of delivering this year's Fest.
The Christmas Fest has become firmly established as a popular community and family event in Poynton's social calendar, and if you feel that you might like to get involved please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a chat as soon as possible.
Poynton AEDs (Automated external defibrillators)
There is an updated list of Poynton’s AEDs. This includes the relocation of the AED that was at reception inside the Civic Hall to an external yellow box on the corner of the Civic Hall (by the bike racks), made possible by a kind donation from North West Ambulance Service and the Town Council. This makes the AED located at the Civic Hall accessible 24/7.
