December 2018 - Thanks to Pete Evans, Station Manager at Hinkley B we now have a defibrillator installed on the clubhouse outside wall. First Aid training, including the use of the defib', will also be provided by Hinkley B at a date to be confirmed aerly in the New Year. In the meantime the device can be accessed from the secure cabinet using the code on the bosun's notice board inside or by calling 999. Essentially it is fully automatic and the instructions are played to you once you press the green start button. Obviously it needs to be operated away from the river and water.
November 2018 - Great news! we have just been awarded a grant from the Somerset Community Foundation for the provision of a new Wooden Gig and equipment.
'HPC Community Fund is managed by Somerset Community Foundation to help local communities mitigate the impacts of Hinkley Point C and maximise the opportunities that arise from the development for the communities (in Somerset) through schemes, measures and projects which promote the economic, social or environmental well-being of those communities and enhance their quality of life.'
Also we are also very grateful to Magnox who have awarded us a grant for VHF radios for operating the Gigs.
