Halstock Community Public Access Defibrillator

A defibrillator has been located behind the Halstock Shop. It is available for villagers to use in an emergency. Should you call the ambulance service, they will direct you to the device if appropriate, so treatment can begin whilst you are waiting for the ambulance and Responders to arrive.

The device is simple too use, and it tells you what to do when you open the defibrillator case. In addition, the ambulance service operator will give additional help in using it.

The Responders Team has used its funds to buy the equipment (costing just over £2000), and thank Halstock residents for supporting our fund raising activities - specifially oru Big Breakfasts which we run October to March each year.


 

Steve Knightley concert

Steve will be in concert on Friday 11th July 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm). Tickets are £16 each, and there will be a bar and light refreshments
With just 100 tickets this will be an intimate occasion which will be a real treat. As of 5 March 42 tickets have been sold, and advertising has not yet begun.
If you would like a ticket, please call Chris Chapman on 01935 891015 / 0781 66 55 278 to reserve. Once advertising starts in April, it is expected that the event will sell out quickly. It would be good if this ends up being an exclusive Corscombe / Halstock event. To ensure this, please book your tickets early.


 

CorscombeFest

This will take place on Saturday 21 June 2014.
We are planning a blend of traditional fete, with Dorset-based food / drink stalls invited and live music to give the event an exciting twist.
We are hoping for support within and beyond Corscombe, so please make a note in your diaries and support the event - we promise it will be a great blend of the traditional and modern
