Snippets from the Draft Minutes of Angmering Parish Council Annual General Meeting on 13 June 2016

Election of Vice-Chairman
Councillor Oldfield was proposed as Vice-Chairman for the remainder of the year by the Chairman, seconded by Councillor Thompson. No other candidates were proposed. The election was carried out by a show of hands and Councillor Oldfield was unanimously ELECTED as Vice-Chairman of the Parish Council.

Traffic Management Scheme
The Clerk noted that the comments given following the presentation from all sources had been returned to WSCC. The final scheme proposals were awaited following which there would be a formal highway consultation conducted by WSCC Highways. It was intended to publicise the details of this once they had been received from WSCC.

Bewley Road Post Box
Everything was ready to rebuild the post box on the junction of Bewley Road and Arundel Road except that the final rubber-stamping was with the Post Office. Once that was received, the work would be carried out.

Telephone Box
The one telephone box in the village, next to Big Fry, had been demolished after being hit by a car over the course of the weekend prior to the meeting. BT had been approached to try to ensure that a replacement was fitted in due course, and indeed a request had been made for a heritage box to replace the damaged one, given that it was in the Conservation Area.

Speedwatch Scheme Proposal
Councillor Lee Hamilton-Street explained that, in order to set up a Speedwatch scheme, 8 volunteers were needed. So far, 7 people had expressed an interest in volunteering. 6 potential sites had been riskassessed and approved by Sussex Police. What was now needed was for the Parish Council to adopt the scheme, and then publicise it appropriately. Councillor Lee Hamilton-Street noted that there was no cost involved in setting up a scheme, nor any charge to use the spare radar gun that was kept at Littlehampton police station; if the scheme wished in the future to purchase its own gun, this could be acquired at a cost of approximately £800. In order to identify speeding vehicles correctly, it was necessary to record the registration number, make and model, and colour. On a proposal by Councillor Lee Hamilton-Street, seconded by Councillor Phelon: That the proposed Community Speedwatch scheme be formally adopted by the Parish Council – unanimously AGREED.

Angmering Parish Council Website
The Clerk gave a brief report on the progress being made to transfer content from the Parish Council’s existing website to the new site. As anticipated, various teething problems had been identified with the new site, which were being worked through by the office. The Clerk confirmed that, on present information, the new site would be live in early July 2016.

Defibrillators

An Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) has been purchased by the Parish Council and is sited on a wall outside their office in The Square near Woodies News.  They are looking at the possibility of purchasing further defibrillators for siting at Palmer Road Recreation Ground and near Roundstone Level Crossing.

For residents information, there is also a defibrillator on the wall at the rear of the Village Hall - close to where the Monterey pine recently fell - and another on the wall at the front of the Community Centre on Bramley Green.

AEDs when used within the first 3-5 minutes of a person suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest can dramatically increase a victims chance of survival from currently what is currently less 5% to as much as 70% and higher with a defibrillator on the scene. AEDs were designed to be used by virtually anyone with little or no experience. The AED will guide you through the entire process until help has arrived and you should follow the visual & voice prompts of the AED. If the victim is not breathing, check the airway is clear then begin Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), i.e. rapid and uniterrupted chest compressions at a depth of 4-5cm. CPR should not be interrupted while the adhesive electrode pads of the AED are being applied.
