After much work and effort over the past few months we are pleased to announce that there is now a Defibrillator up and running at the Gray Park. This is mounted to the side of the clubhouse and is accessible 24/7. The idea has been around for a while and involved applying to the British Heart Foundation for support and also partnering with the Burrelton & Woodside Village Hall Committee, Burrelton Rovers Football Club and Burrelton Bowling Club who have all contributed to making this happen and we are extremely grateful for their support. Although this has been a team effort, special thanks in particular must go to to Douglas Rae who has been instrumental in driving this forward and navigated the funding process.
As part of our ongoing commitment we need to train as many people as we can in CPR although the use of the Defibrillator doesn’t need any training as it talks you through what you need to do. The board have already had training and we will arrange training for anyone who wishes this and if anyone is interested please get in touch with a board member to discuss.
Just a quick update on the Jim Filshie and Gladys Howell Tennis Tournaments which are being held this Sunday.
These competitions are for players of all abilities and we would welcome a few more participants. If you could sign the list in the clubhouse that would be great but don’t worry if you can’t manage that, just arrive by 1pm on Sunday. The competitions will start at 1.30pm. Obviously if you don’t want to play you can always just come along to watch and support!
Please feel free to bring along some refreshments as the kitchen will be open.
We look forward to seeing you all and hopefully the weather will be kind to us.
Burrelton Village Hall Committee are holding a Mexican Night on Saturday 28th September at the Village Hall to help raise funds for a Defibrillator which has been purchased recently.
The defibrillator is being funded with contributions from British Heart Foundation, Burrelton Tennis Club, Burrelton Bowling Club, Burrelton Bowling Club and the Burrelton Village Hall Committee and will be situated at the Gray park, Burrelton once installed. It is a great testament to what can be achieved with collaboration.
We appreciate everyone’s efforts in getting this moving and would welcome the support from members for this event, you even get fed and get to wear a sombrero and poncho in an environment where people won’t judge you………well not too much anyway.
Tickets from Reid the Butcher or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets £12.50 which includes Mexican food, bring your sombrero!
Que tengas una buena tarde……..
