Public Access Defibrillators in Cookhill
Did you know that there are four public access debrillators in the Parish?
A recent emergency in Cookhill almost called for the use of the Village Hall defibrillator. Thankfully the ambulance arrived quickly, meaning the defibrillator wasn’t needed on this occasion but the knowledge that it was there gave the parishioner peace of mind.
To learn more about the Cookhill defibrillators and their locations here.
There has been an increase in the number of scam callers in the area over the last few months.
One of the scam calls doing the rounds requests access to your computer remotely, claiming that BT will shut down your connection if you do not do this. Another reports that your internet connection will be terminated if you do not click through to another department.
Please remember that if a caller asks to access your computer remotely, or asks for personal information and bank details, you should end the call immediately and use another method to verify the request.
For more information on how to stay safe online, and to report fraud and cyber crime, please visit the Action Fraud website.
