New defib at Forest Fold

❀️ There is now a defibrillator for use at Forest Fold Allotments, bowling green and scout hut site (off Miles Lane).

It is situated on the side of the scout hut.

Thanks to allotment committee for driving forward this project, particularly Andrew Moakes who has worked to liaise with the North West Ambulance Service and is going to arrange training in future.

There are instructions on the defib, but should you need it, call 999 and you will be guided through the process.

Please email the clerk or contact Shevington Gardening Club should you wish to partake in training. ❀️

Free short-term wheelchair loan in Shevington

If you have occasions when using a wheelchair would help you or a relative make the most of the village, here’s a solution.
Greater Manchester’s ‘Age Friendly Neighbourhood’ project enabled Shevington Community Association to buy two transit wheelchairs which can be borrowed free of charge. These I-Lite chairs are lightweight but strong; safe for users up to 18stone; ideal to be pushed from car park to cafe or to a local appointment; they fold and can go in a car boot.
It is important to note that they are for short term use only and borrowed at the users’ own risk.
If you have an occasion when this would be useful to you, please contact
Sheila Milnes 01257 253735 / 07510 55 67 55 or Marlaine Whitham 07806938114 / 01257 253055 or one of the stewards at Shevington Methodist Church.
