The Defibrillator is now back in use at The Compasses Pub in Greenfield

Image result for defibrillator

We are very pleased to say that the defibrillator at The Compasses has been reinstated and is now in use again. Thanks go to Charles Wells and the Gordon family for getting this into position, albeit a slightly different location at the front, so quickly following the completion of the refurbishment works.

Do please remember though that there are two other defibs in the Parish, located at Flitton and Greenfield Village Hall and Flitton Church Hall.

We sincerely hope you never need to access one, but if you do, dial 999, request an ambulance and get the access code to allow you to send someone to fetch it. The cabinet is locked with a key pad, so you will need the code. It is very helpful if the person collecting it has a mobile phone to call 999 if there are any problems using or remembering the code. Inside there is the defibrillator and an equipment bag including a torch, face shields, spare defib pads, paediatric defib pads and other items to assist when using the equipment. It is highly recommend, if you haven’t done so already, to attend a defib training session. There will be one annually from 2020. Please spread the word that these are now active. If you have any questions or require further information please contact our Defib Guardian Julianne Wright 07739 431933 or email  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE TRAINED OR NEED SOMEONE  WHO IS TRAINED TO USE THE DEFIB THE UNIT TALKS YOU THROUGH WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Flitton and Greenfield

Greenfield is a small village about 1.2 miles from the town of Flitwick, it lies across Flitwick Moor and is on the opposite side of the River Flit. It forms part of the parish of Flitton and Greenfield. The area was once well known as a strawberry producing area, and the fields were full of strawberry plants on either side of the main road. It is now a thriving village with several small businesses.

Flitton  (Flichtam, Fllite, and Flute) forms the other part of the parish and derives its name from river Flit. It is the home of the De Grey Mausoleum adjacent to St John the Baptist church. Flitton contains the hamlet of Wardhedges. It too has a number of small businesses and working farms.
