These communities are visited once every four weeks and the mobile libraries offer a range of services for everyone including fiction and non-fiction books for adults and children, large print books, books on tape and books on CD as well as a selection of local studies books and information.

Defibrillator to be fitted in Windley in the old telephone kiosk

Turnditch and Windley Parish Council has funded the purchase of a portable defibrillator device which is in the process of being fitted in Windley in the old telephone kiosk at the bottom of the hill. A training session took place on 3rd January 2018 but if you missed that, the instructions with the defibrillator say that using the device is very straightforward.
