There will be a short ‘Cenotaph’ style service in the Village Hall, with everyone standing throughout.
The War Memorial will be moved from the Church to the VH for the day, wreaths laid during the service will moved to the VH flagpole afterwards. Prior to the service, the traditional procession will be a ‘pavement walk’ from the School to VH.
Procession entry to the VH will be through the fire doors, the South door [nearest Lytham Rd] will be for Clergy, Flag Carriers & Wreath Layers only. Remainder of procession will enter by North fire door & stand on RH side of Hall. Other attendees will have been directed to stand on the Left side of the Hall and there will be a very limited number of chairs for those who genuinely cannot stand during the
Timings are approximately:
Procession gathers @ St Paul’s School from 10.30
Procession leaves [circa 1040] to arrive @ VH for 10.45
Service starts circa 10.50 & finishes before 11.30
New Road Layout Safety Concerns
Warton in the News - Lytham St Annes Express dated 15th Aug 2019
The Warton Parish Councillors are not happy with the response and the fact that the plan has now been 'signed off'. The Council are seeking assurances that there will be no lesser safety for all users, pedestrian and vehicles with no barriers in place. To reiterate again in addition to the safety aspect, we would want, what is our Village Centre not to look like most 4 lane highways, and the barrier also provide and infrastructure for SOME greenery. We will be engaging with schools and BAe to ensure that they thoroughly understand the implication of the intended design.
Use of Defibrillators
You may or may not know that just recently two defibrillators in the village have been used, although they do come with comprehensive instructions when activated, the article below taken fron the British Heart Foundation website might prove useful
If you come across someone who is unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing or not breathing normally, they’re in cardiac arrest. The most important thing is to call 999 and start CPR to keep the blood flowing to the brain and around the body. After a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone's chance of survival by 10 per cent.
If you're on your own, don't interrupt the CPR to go and get a defibrillator. If it's possible, send someone else to find one. When you call 999, the operator can tell you if there's a public access defibrillator nearby.
To use a defibrillator, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Turn the defibrillator on by pressing the green button and follow its instructions.
Step 2: Peel off the sticky pads and attach them to the patient’s skin, one on each side of the chest, as shown in the picture on the defibrillator.
Step 3: Once the pads have been attached, stop CPR and don’t touch the patient. The defibrillator will then analyse the patient’s heart rhythm.
Step 4: The defibrillator will assess whether a shock is needed and if so, it will tell you to press the shock button. An automatic defibrillator will shock the patient without prompt. Do not touch the patient while they are being shocked.
Step 5: The defibrillator will tell you when the shock has been delivered and whether you need to continue CPR.
Step 6: Continue with chest compressions and rescue breaths until the patient shows signs of life or the defibrillator tells you to stop so it can analyse the heartbeat again.
