Every year over 30,000 cardiac arrests happen outside of hospital - often witnessed by family members and friends.
Escrick has a CPR a training kit and from time-to-time we can arrange CPR training courses for local residents. We're considering arranging another one for December or January. If you are interested, please can you email email@example.com so that we have an idea of numbers, and can contact you when we have fixed a date.
Remember Escrick has a public access defibrillator, located outside Escrick & Deighton Club on Main St.
You don't need training to use it.
It is simple and safe. The machine gives clear spoken instructions. If you are still not confident using it, the 999 emergency operator can also help you. More details https://www.escrick.org/council/defibrillator/

Many children enjoy taking part in 'trick or treat' activities on Halloween (Wednesday 31st October), and many residents gladly take part sharing treats. However, not everyone welcomes visitors, including those trying to get small children to sleep, or those who find answering the door difficult.
The general etiquette is that those households willing to partake leave a pumpkin on prominent display, and those that would rather be left in peace don't. Please consider this etiquette if taking part.

Bonfire night (5th Nov) falls on a Monday this year, and it is likely that some residents will let off fireworks on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd, and Monday 5th November. Those residents with pets may wish to keep them indoors on these dates. (NB: There is no display at Queen Margaret's this year, due to half-term).
We are aware that some residents object to private firework displays - but there is no requirement for them to be pre-notified, and (providing they are undertaken lawfully) no ability for the Parish Council to prevent them. It might be considered good manners, however, to let your neighbours know in advance if you are planning a display, particularly if they have pets. See https://www.escrick.org/village/fireworks/ for details of our notification service.
This year the main Diwali celebrations fall on Wednesday 7th November - and it is likely that some residents will celebrate with fireworks (which are legally permitted until 1am on Diwali). Those residents with pets may wish to keep them indoors.
