DEFIBRILLATOR heart restarting machine. This is now stored at the Spar shop Edward Road for borrowing by group events. (A defibrillator was bought for use at events in Whitehead. The Spar shop in Edward Road is open long hours and appears to be the best place to store it.)
Training in use of the defibrillator is available. Speak to the Community Centre manager for more info.

Whitehead Goes Green: Saturday 28 April 2012
Transition Town Whitehead will be organising a Green Fair at Whitehead Community Centre on Saturday 28 April.
Our plan is to promote the benefits of sustainable ‘green’ lifestyles in an engaging and enjoyable way and, certainly, without getting too ‘preachy’ about it all.
We’re planning to have a variety of exhibitors and a series of short talks and films throughout the day, covering Transition Town Whitehead’s campaign themes -
These are a few suggested ideas so far...
Energy clinic -
Renewable energy -
Growing your own food -
A Pledge Wall of Green Promises -
Skills Market -
Dr Bike -
Measure your carbon footprint (if you dare)
Ethical Fashion swap shop -
Are you ready for an electric car?
What’s in the sea beside Blackhead path?
Kids’ stuff -
Music, food, drinks and craic come as standard...
But it’s only going to work if we’ve got people who want to help with the organisation -
Tell us what else we could have in the Fair.
Volunteer to help, especially if you have skills or interests that you’d be willing to share with other people at the event. For example, could you lead a cookery demonstration? Can you lead a children’s workshop to make mobiles or something equally attractive? Would you show people how to grow leeks or lettuces? Would you organise a ‘swishing’ catwalk show?
Thanks to the Big Energy Savings Challenge organised by Power NI, we’ve got some funding to organise this event, but we really need some help to make it work. It’s a community gig, you’re part of the community -
RSVP and make us an offer.
