Message of Condolence from Spaldington Parish Council in regard to the death of HRH Duke of Edinburgh
It is with great sadness that we have received confirmation that HRH, the Duke of Edinburgh, has passed away. On behalf of the Spaldington Parish Council and the local community, we wish to express our sincere condolences to HM The Queen and the Royal Family who are in our thoughts and prayers. We will remember the Duke of Edinburgh with affection and wish to express our gratitude for his lifetime of service to the nation.
We will await the formal guidance from the Cabinet Office and Buckingham Palace. The Parish Council would also like to request that in light of current Covid-19 restrictions, should any member of the community wish to leave a tribute, rather than leaving a floral tribute, a donation to a local charity is considered instead.
Cllr Ross Ashton
Chair of the Spaldington Parish Council
News and pictures of what is happening to the old Parish phone box
As the community will know, the Council took the decision to have the old phone box renovated and refurbished to restore it to it's former glory. The phone box has been sent away for a full sandblasting process as well as much needed repair and repainting. Once it fully restored, the Council will invite the community to submit ideas of what to do with the phone box.

The new defibrillator in the Parish
The Council after reviewing the old defib machine in the Parish, found that it was beyond use as it not been maintained unfortunately. As the defib machine may be crucial to saving a life in the community, the Council took the decision to enter into a new leasing arrangement with Defib Ltd. This new defib machine has been fitted and is ready to use in an emergency - the code of the secure box it sits in is known by the Councillors but crucially by the emergency service in the event of a 999 call.
The defib is near the noticeboard in Main Street, Spaldington.
Whilst training is not needed in an emergency situation as the defib machine gives instructions, our suppliers have provided an overview of how it works if any member of the community wishes to review it in action. The link is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pnaf5t7HhI
