The much-awaited defibrillators have arrived! After a significant delay due to a change in the specification for the boxes in which they are being mounted, the three defibrillators will installed at the following locations:  

  • On the outside of The Horse & Groom on The Street
  • On the outside of Mortimer Surgery on Victoria Road
  • On the outside of the Sansome & George office on West End Road

MVP thanks those three businesses for agreeing to host the defibrillators for the benefit of the whole village. Two of the defibrillators are being funded by MVP and the third by Tadley First Responders from a grant received from AWE for this purpose. Anyone can use a defibrillator without previous instruction: if you call the emergency services with a medical situation which needs a defibrillator, you will be given instructions on how to get one. The defibrillator itself is self-explanatory so anyone can confidently use it.

More information on the local First Responder service is available here.

 Christian Aid Week 14th to 20th May 2017

Christian Aid Week was set up 60 years ago to support work with refugees in Europe following the Second World War. Since then, millions of impoverished, displaced and starving people in the developing world and war-torn countries around the globe have benefited from help from people who give up their time to get out and collect from homes in cities, towns and villages across the UK. 

If you have time and would like to help drop and collect Christian Aid envelopes through doors in Mortimer please contact Deborah Griffiths on 0785 725 2187 or 

Recycle for Charities

Quite a number of people in the village collect a wide variety of items for charity: postage stamps, ink cartridges, milk bottle tops, bras etc. Please see the link in the left hand menu for a new page where this information is recorded to make it easier for more people to not throw away items that can generate money for charities. How to get your collection included is also there.
