Update 12th April 2023

Geoff Farnworth (Paramedic) has suggested the first session for people who have signed up and can make the training in Bickerton will be on Wed 19 April at 6pm at Manorlea, Main Street Bickerton.  It will last about one and a half hours.

The proposed first date in Bilton (again for those who have signed up) is Wed 26 April in the morning from 10am – St Helens Church.

The training is on a first come basis and further training sessions can be offered as needed.


Our Parish Council has arranged to offer CPR and Defibrillator training open to all residents in Bilton in Ainsty and Bickerton.   The sessions will be held in both villages and will last approximately 90 minutes commencing mid April.

It is available to anyone wishing to learn how to give CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and how to operate a defibrillator or those who just wish to take a refresher course. There is no cost to attend but you are welcome to make a donation towards the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and against consumables used in the training.

Please email your interest to Joyce Harrison :
Please put ‘CPR Training’ in the subject line.
Indicate your preference for Bilton or Bickerton and the names of persons wishing to attend.  It would be helpful to include a contact number and a preference for mornings, afternoons or early evening.

It is envisaged that the sessions will be held for a maximum of ten persons.  You will be notified of dates, times and location. Don’t worry if you can’t make one session more will be provided.
