Many residents will know that the Parish Council now owns two Defibrillators, one for use in each Village. The defibrillators are housed in secure boxes, one in Bilton in Ainsty (newly installed in a heated cabinet) and the other at Jesmond Dene Main Street Bickerton. The boxes are locked and can be opened by anyone directed by the Ambulance Emergency Service to collect a defibrillator, in case of an emergency. There are trained 'first responders' in each Village who can be contacted by the Emergency Ambulance Service in the event that a 999 call is received.
NYCC have completed the improvements to the footpath adjacent to the B1224, between Tom Cat Lane and Turnpike lane. Improved drainage was installed to eliminate rainwater standing on this section of footpath and to ensure that the road gulleys at the end of Tom Cat Lane do not cause rainwater to flood the highway at times of heavy rain. This maintenance scheme should now have eliminate all the major flooding problems in the Parish.
