Defibrillator Appeal  A date for your dairy.

Having taken advice from our Village Doctors, Fire Service and the Police an Appeal is underway to buy a Defibrillator for Heighington. Most people we have spoken to understand the purpose of installing a Defibrillator despite the fact that it may never be used – we hope that it never has to be used but like insurance it only needs to be used once to save one life and it pays for itself. Over the last few months money has been raised thanks to our Homemakers’, Scouts, St Michael’s Church and donations made by very generous and thoughtful residents.

We are on our way and we are pleased to announce that our next money raising event will be held on June 22nd 2019 in St Michael’s Church Heighington from 10am through to 12 noon. Cost of entry will be £3.00 which will include tea/coffee and a delicious cake or homemade scone.

Plants will be on sale which will include large beautiful flowering Dahlias which will be a focus point in anyone’s garden

All money raised from the tea and coffee and plant sale will go towards buying a Defibrillator for the village.

So irrespective of whether you live in the Parish or you live in the town why not pop in to St Michael’s to see the changes in our 12th century church or relax by ambling through the village voted Britain’s Most Perfect Village not that many years ago or stay a while and enjoy eating lunch in one of our two pubs, both famous for their food.

And another date for your dairy . . .

On July 21st Heighington will be celebrating the 100th birthday of ex RN Officer Doug Sayles. We have booked the village hall and the organisation is in its infancy but as we will be limiting entry to 70 people tickets will be sold very quickly.

Cost is still being calculated and details are still to be sorted but this will be first come first served with Church members, who have befriended Doug for many years, being first in the queue. So we would suggest that as soon as we advertise the lunch you need to react quickly.
