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.

The survey can be viewed here

Benington Beacon lighting


There was a ceremony to light the beacon at Benington Recreation Ground on Thursday 21 April, just one of more than 900 beacons lit across the UK and overseas as part of Her Majesty the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations.

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 and there will be some short Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) demonstrations in the near future.

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