NEW DEFIBRILLATOR AT LANGAR CHURCH

April 19th, 2023

A new defibrillator has been installed in the porch at St. Andrew’s porch, between Church Lane and Langar Hall. It is funded jointly by the Church and Langar Hall.

Other public ones are in the phone boxes in Langar and in Barnstone and in many other places, maybe also some private ones. Emergency services can bring them. A defibrillator restarts a heart in a case of cardiac arrest / no pulse but the machines can tell whether that is the case.

If you ever need one, call 999 and they will tell you where the nearest one is, how to unlock the defibrillator with any accessories and what to do. Ideally it takes at least one person to attend to the patient, giving CPR and another person to fetch the defibrillator. It really needs continuous use of a mobile phone (preferably hands free) to stay in contact with 999. The defibrillator must be with the patient within 3 or 4 minutes and then it will give you instructions.

It is worth knowing a little about what to do if you find someone unconscious, with no pulse or unable to breath. This might avoid panic and save a life but the 999 call and the machine will guide you. There are online guides (I’ll try to give a link to one) and short training sessions to use before you face a real situation. Learn the basics of CPR to keep the patient’s blood flowing if their heart has stopped.

I cannot give proper advice but it is important to:

  • Call 999
  • Ensure the patient and you are in a safe position (traffic, electricity, fire, water, hazards etc.)
  • See if the person is breathing (clear any blockage and try mouth to mouth) or conscious or has a pulse or has signs of severe bleeding, injury or serious conditions
  • Do CPR especially if no pulse until a defibrillator takes over
  • Get others to help with the patient and fetching a defibrillator

Questionnaire regarding crossroads between Barnstone & Langar

February 9th, 2022

Dear Langar and Barnstone Community Member,

Langar School Council, in co-operation with Lucy Paine and James Barlow, have been looking into the road safety issues that we have in the villages.

You may have passed us many of us in the morning as we walk or cycle to school. Lots of us want to travel to school like this as it is good for our health and the environment. It is also good for us to start to do this independently as we get older and prepare for secondary school.

However, lots of us worry about getting across Musters Road; the crossroads between Barnstone and Langar. We know that lots of residents and parents worry about this crossing too.

The local councillors, Neil Clarke and Tina Combellack, share our concerns about the junction and they are really keen to support finding a way to make the crossing and getting to school safer. However, to make things happen we need to collect some information, in part so that whatever might be put in place meets the needs of us all.

So, whether or not you have a school age child, we would really value your answers to a few short questions. Please either reply by e-mail (lucypaine@gmail.com) or by dropping your completed questionnaire off at Langar School where there will be a box for them.

Lucy
