Whittlebury is a small village of some 236 households and a population of 589 (2011 Census) set on the edge of the historical royal hunting forest of Whittlewood. The earliest settlement has been traced to the Iron Age, and King Athelstan held court in Whittlebury in c.930AD. Our rural legacy can still be found today with many mature trees and views over the countryside surrounding the village with, in particular, the woods, parkland and deer park on the southern edge.

The Parish Council provides your local services and we strive to make Whittlebury a better place in which to live, work and play. This website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search facility or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.

NEW DEFIBRILLATOR FOR THE VILLAGE

The Parish Council is pleased to announce that a new community public access defibrillator (CPAD) has been installed at the Reading Room, Whittlebury. In the unfortunate circumstance of someone collapsing in the village, the 999 call to the ambulance service will flag up information about the CPAD in the ambulance control room and the caller will be given the access code to the defibrillator cabinet. More »

It is hoped that while the CPAD is being collected, another bystander can administer basic life support (BLS) to the casualty prior to the arrival of the paramedics which could take up to 10 minutes. Once deployed, the fully automated defibrillator will inform those assisting if a shock is going to be administered to the casualty.

There will be a training session on BLS and use of the defibrillator in the near future for any interested villagers - details available shortly. » Less
