Emergency Facilities in Quenington

A defibrillator is installed on the outside of  Quenington Village Hall on The Green.

The defibrillator has been designed to be used by the public as it talks you through the process. There are however several trained volunteers in Quenington and they can be contacted via the Village Emergency Telephone System. This will automatically ring all the trained volunteers at the same time. The first to answer will respond to the emergency.

The Emergency telephone number is 01285 610210. PLEASE USE THIS NUMBER FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS ONLY AND ALWAYS RING 999 FIRST..

The defibrillator, cabinet and emergency phone number have all been bought from funds raised through the 2013 Quenington Village Fete. Thank you to the Fete committee and all who attended the fete for providing this important emergency facility.

Quenington Society: The Quenington Society was founded about 20 years ago as a result of fighting unsuitable development in the village. It has since grown into more of a social group and anyone who lives in the village is automatically a member. Activities that have been organised include the children's Summer Programme, lectures, walks, debates and excursions.

The Society is non profit making and any funds are either put back into the Society or donated to local charities. Recently the Society was able to help with donating towards the restoration of the bale tombs in the Churchyard. A photographic archive is being created to record the history of the village.
