Power Cuts

UK Power

Do you or someone you know need extra support during a power cut? Although power cuts don’t happen very often when they do they can be worrying.

UK Power Networks is the electricity network and it provides a ‘Priority Services Register’ for people who might need extra help in a power cut.

Older people, families with very young children, and people with specific medical conditions are among the many people who are eligible to register for free support.

You can find more details and register by visiting
or calling 0800 169 9970.

Drivers warned about deer danger

deer at night

October through to December is considered a high-risk period as deer will be on the move for the autumn mating season, also known as the rut. The highest risk of a deer-vehicle collision is between sunset and midnight, and the hours shortly before and after sunrise.

Benington pond survey


Benington Parish Council has had a survey carried out on the village pond.

The reason for this is it was felt the pond would benefit from draining and clearing of rubbish. But before this could be done, it was necessary to determine what wildlife was present and the possible impacts.

Public Access Defibrillator


The village now has a defibrillator sited outside the entrance to the Village Hall, courtesy of the Parish Council and the British Heart Foundation.

A second unit will be installed outside Ernest Doe's in the near future.

These machines are designed so that any one can use them.

More information on their use can be seen on YouTube videos by clicking here
