The Community Heartbeat Trust is coming to Braughing and will be demonstrating the use of defibrillators and explaining how the equipment works and its benefits to the community in saving precious minutes in the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest.
The more people that know how to use the portable defibrillators now installed in our community, the more chance there is of saving the life of a victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Everybody is welcome, and no special skills are required, just your willingness to play an important role in the event of a medical emergency.

The increase in dog fouling in Braughing has reached epidemic proportions. What is it about dog owners, who do not clean up their dog's mess? Don't they understand that it's filthy, disgusting and a health hazard. They have a social and community responsibility to clean up after their dogs. When challenged by a resident who saw a dog poo on the playing fields, the owner told her to F**k off as she paid her council tax and was not going to clean up after her dog.
So this is what we are going to do.
We hope that by taking this action as a community we can put an end to this disgusting, foul practice which is a health hazard - particularly to our children. Please support this cause which has the full backing of Braughing Parish Council.
Using grant funding from the Big Lottery Fund, Braughing Parish Council has installed two automated defibrillators in the village, which you may have already seen. The parish council have agreed to install two units:-
Automated defibrillators are used without the need for any specialised training and can save lives. When somebody suffers a cardiac arrest outside of hospital, his or her chances of survival are poor. Access to an automated defibrillator can make a significant difference to the outcome for that person and can and do save lives.
With the equipment now installed, it is important that we raise the awareness of this valuable life saving equipment. We are working with the Community Heartbeat Trust and have organised two training sessions. We can have up to 50 residents attending each one, so lets make sure we have lots of people with the confidence to do what is required if needed.
