Library Volunteering Opportunity – Summer Reading Challenge
North Somerset Libraries are looking for volunteers to help with the running of the annual Summer Reading Challenge. The Challenge aims to give children aged four to 11 an enjoyable activity to complete during their summer holiday and prevent any dip in literacy that may occur during the long break from school. This is a short term opportunity between 11 July and 12 September 2015. This year’s Challenge is called ‘Record Breakers’. Volunteers will talk to children about the books they have read, help children choose books and hand out rewards. Flexible volunteering sessions are on offer and full training will be provided. Volunteers do not need to have any previous experience of volunteering or working in a library. An interest in reading and the ability to communicate well with people of all ages would be useful. Two references will be requested for all volunteers, (The Library Volunteering Team will guide you through this process). If you would like further information please contact Sarah Smith, by 18 June 2015, on 01934 426 657 or email email@example.com

Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) at Winscombe Community Centre
The new PAD has been installed to the front of the Community Centre building on Sandford Road, by the main double doors and clearly visible from the car park area. The defibrillator unit housed in the external green cabinet is built specifically for laypeople to use who may not have had any training.
It is intended that this unit, along with the PADs located outside Thatchers Cider Offices on Station Road Sandford and at the War Memorial Recreation Ground, off The Lynch in Winscombe will further safeguard those living, working and using recreational facilities in our parish against the risk that the Emergency Services may take more time to arrive than the precious few minutes you have to restart a heart after a Cardiac Arrest has occurred
Parish Council Office Opening Hours
The office is open to the public between 10 am and 12 noon each Monday and Thursday. The weekly Police Surgery is also held on a Thursday morning between 10 am and 12 noon at the same venue.
