New AED for Camblesforth

The Parish Council is very pleased to advise that we have installed a brand new defibrillator (AED) on Croft Road – this is now registered with the Ambulance Service and is up and running. We hope it will never be used, but it is there if needed. 😁
The Parish Council would like to thank Drax Power Station for their very generous donation of £500 towards the AED. 👍👏
Also a massive thank you to Keith & Linda of KLS Electricals for installing the AED at no cost to the village,🤗😃 and last but absolutely not least, to Gemma for allowing the Parish Council to place the AED on her business wall and for putting up with all the disruption involved in the installation. 🤗😃 
Without the above people, we could not have provided this essential service to the community of Camblesforth. 🥰🥰

FEASTive Activities and Food Programme over Christmas

North Yorkshire County Council and the North Yorkshire Together team is asking if the Paarish Council would display the attached poster in our parish, (please click here FeasTIVE NYCC ) to help them encourage as many families as possible to take part in their ‘FEASTive’ programme this Christmas.

FEAST is all about children and young people enjoying food, entertainment, arts and sport together. Children and young people in North Yorkshire who get benefits-related free school meals can book onto our holiday activity sessions during the Christmas holidays for free, where each day they’ll also receive a free hot meal or packed lunch. There are loads of activities to get involved in and they’re absolutely free!

The programme is funded by the Department of Education, and together our hope is that as many children and young people as possible can enjoy the activities on offer.

If you have any enquiries about the poster, please email

Many thanks for your help,

North Yorkshire Together
