Welcome to Braughing - ' A Sense of Place'

This is your guide to the historic village of Braughing, designed to help you find out about the village and make the most of your day out here if you plan to visit in the future.

Braughing is a village and civil parish, between the rivers Quin and Rib, in the non-metropolitan district of East Hertfordshire, part of the English county of Hertfordshire, England.

There is a wealth of history here dating back to pre-Roman times and a huge amount to do when you visit. Whether you like walking, see the Village Walks section, or relaxing in one of or three excellent pubs, we can give you a day out to remember.

The historic church of St Mary the Virgin dates back to medieval times and dominates that area of Braughing's landscape. From there you can discover the beauty of Braughing using the footpaths which are clearly signposted.

Automated defibrillators are designed to be used by anyone without the need for any specialised training - they can and do save lives. When somebody suffers a cardiac arrest outside of hospital, the chances of survival are poor. Access to an automated defibrillator can make a significant difference to the outcome for that person. Living in a rural community, we are more likely to wait longer for trained paramedics to arrive on the scene, making it even more important to have access to equipment such as an automated defibrillator.

The parish council have agreed to install two units:-

In September this year, I applied to the National Lottery Fund to provide the equipment we need, including installation costs, training and signage etc. I have now been notified that the full amount requested for £5490 was to be awarded to the parish council.

We are now working with the Community Heartbeat Trust to get the equipment and support we will need and I am hopeful the equipment will be installed this side of Christmas 2017.

In the New Year 2018, we will be organising some awareness training sessions for residents. I will be back in contact when I know more detail.

On behalf of Braughing Parish Council and all the residents of Braughing, I would very much like to thank the Big Lottery Fund for this grant, which will certainly be saving lives here in Braughing.
