New defibrillator at the Village Hall

A new defibrillator has been installed at the Village Hall in Brentor to replace the old unit which had reached the end of it’s serviceable life. The equipment and storage cabinet have been purchased with Parish Council funds and a grant from the Department of Health and Social Care fund.In the event of a medical emergency always dial 999 first. The ambulance service know where defibrillators are located and how to access them. There is no mobile phone cover in much of the Parish but there is a public payphone adjacent to the War Memorial in Brentor which can be used to call the emergency services.

    Mistletoe Fair 2023

    2023 Mistletoe Fair

    Brentor Village Hall was packed with festive visitors last Saturday (2/12/23) attending the annual Mistletoe Fair. As well as tasty food and drink there were lots of stalls selling all sorts of Christmas essentials with accompanying music from the Hummingbirds.

    The fair is an important event in the Village Hall calendar raising vital funds for the upkeep of the hall. It takes an enormous amount of energy to put on such an event (and bake all those goodies!) so a big thank you to the VHPFC for their hard work in making is such as success and to all those that came along and enjoyed the event.

    See you in 2024!

    Villages in Action – Help! I think I’m a Nationalist!

    This event is now sold out

    Don't forget your tickets!

    Saturday 18th March 2023 7.30pm start at Brentor Village Hall

    Who am I?  Where do I belong?  And who should I vote for? Cornwall is at a tipping point.  House prices soar, the population shifts, tensions rise.  Some people see it as a separate nation, whilst others see it as a prime holiday destination and playground for the rich.  Seamas Carey is confused.  He is desperately trying to understand.  He’s watched a wave of gentrification sweep through his rural hometown.  There’s nowhere to live, yet second homes stand empty.  He wishes Cornwall was more welcoming and inclusive, but watches “up country” money sow division and suspicion.  Could closing borders and nationalism be the answer?  Where’s the line between pride and power?  What happens when it all goes too far?

    Seamas needs help…he needs your help!

    Suitable for 16+ years.  Tickets £13 available to book in advance online at:

    https://villagesinaction.co.uk/events/help-i-think-im-a-nationalist/
