Hay Library Drop in session on the future of the library Monday 4th February 10am – 12pm

Letter from HOWLS regarding the future of Hay Library:

Dear Clyro Community Council

You are probably aware that Powys County Council is proposing to cut the funding for staff at 11 of the 18 libraries in the county. This includes cutting the Librarian at Hay Library.

Although we have a number of great volunteers at Hay Library, we will not be able to guarantee the long term future of Hay Library without the professional support of the library staff who provide a vital link with the central library service and whose knowledge and advice on a range of issues including information about housing, jobs and benefits are invaluable.

Hay Library is well used and well loved and serves a much wider area than just Hay, with users coming in from your community in Clyro.

Powys is holding a drop in session at Hay Library on Monday 4th February from 10am to 12 noon to hear the views of local people and we would appreciate it if you could publicise this to your residents.

 HOWLS will also be discussing the best way forward at our next meeting on Wednesday 20th February 7pm in Hay Library and we would very much like to invite members of Clyro Community Council to attend.

Defibrillator Training

Over 20 local residents attended the basic life saving and defibrillator training at Clyro Village Hall yesterday organised by Clyro Community Council & delivered by Simon from the specialised  training charity Cariad.

During the training attendees learnt  how to act in the event of encountering a patient suffering from cardiac arrest and how to access and use the automatic defibrillator that is located on the wall of the village hall. Vital actions that when performed promptly after an attack occurs really can save lives.

Many thanks to all who attended and to our trainer Simon for a most informative as well as memorable presentation.

For those who weren’t able to attend and as a refresher for those who did here is a link to a video of how the defibrillator works.

Please note to access the defibrillator on the wall of the village hall:

Grasp the cover either side and pull firmly towards you and fold down. An alarm will sound and if required (this can be silenced by pressing 2222 followed by the tick ✔️ button on the keypad but it will stop itself after a period of time.)

If you hear the alarm sounding – please be aware that a there may be a situation nearby that requires your assistance (or it maybe someone has tampered with the equipment!)

Other nearby Defibrillators can be found at:

Roast Ox Inn Painscastle  LD2 3JL Eastern Wall (Rhosgoch end of village) of the Roast Ox Inn in the Centre of the Village of Painscastle.
