NEW SEPTIC TANK REGULATIONS
If you have a septic tank that discharges directly to surface water (ditch, stream, river etc) you must replace or upgrade your septic tank treatment system by 1 January 2020 or when you sell your property (if it is before this date). The replacement options are a new sewage treatment plant with full BS EN 12566-3 Certification or the discharge to the watercourse stopped and diverted to a drain field designed and constructed to the current British Standard BS 6297 2007.
Many thanks to those who completed the recent household survey asking for your views, concerns etc – the results can be found in the attached report QuestionnaireAnalysis.

News about the Bus Service Timetable. The timetable has been changed temporarily from 4 March 2019 – Timetable680 (19-03) This is because of road closures in Alston. The temporary timetable will give local users an extra 30minutes in Carlisle. The County Council would like to know if users of the bus service would like this to be a permanent change. The Parish Council has advised the County Council that they are supportive of change.

Over 41 Parishioners attended AED Training Sessions held in Faugh, Hayton, and Corby Hill IN 2018. In our latest questionnaire Parishioners asked us to provide more training in 2019 especially in How Mill area – watch this space for further news about this.
Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) It is with grateful thanks to Brampton League of Friends that the parish council can announce that two more AED’s and external cabinets have been purchased. The purchases have been fully funded by the Brampton League of Friends.
All the AED’s have now been registered with the Ambulance Service and are fully operational.
The locations are:
1. On the wall of the village hall at Talkin
2. On a pole at the Walnut Field, Hayton
3. On the wall of Steve Wilson, Butchers shop, Corby Hill
4. On the wall at Brackensgill, Hardbank
5. On the wall of the Village Hall, Heads Nook
6. On the wall at the String of Horses Inn, Faugh
7. On the wall next to noticeboard, Fenton
8. On the outside house wall of Woody Glen, How Mill
The cabinets are locked and you will need to telephone the emergency 999 number and speak to an operator who will give the code to access the cabinet. The AED can be used without Heartstart training as the machine gives automated instructions.
