PROPOSED TELECOMS MAST LOWER FOLD
The latest information we have on this is that the telecoms company are discussing alternative locations with the council, so fingers crossed it looks like they may not be putting it outside Ludworth School.
DEFIBRILLATOR INSTALLED & TRAINING SESSION COMPLETED
The MBA ran a training course on how to use a defibrillator at the Women’s Institute on the 19th of January. Over fifty people attended the session put on for us through the Community Heartbeat Trust. The defibrillator is now fully up and running and is located in the refurbished phone box on Lower Fold in Marple Bridge.
Thanks to everyone who helped and made donations.
