Great news - the two defibrillators are now available to use in an emergency. One is located at the Community hall and one on the south side of the public toilets opposite Cambrian Terrace/road to the railway.
There is a key to open them, like the key to an electricity box, and it's hanging attached to the box (see photos). If you need to use the defibrillator in an emergency, it will take you through what you need to do step by step with an automated voice recording. Having the training is very helpful but the defibrillators are set up so that anyone can safely use one by following the instructions it gives you. It really is very straight forward.
Our second session for defibrillator/first aid training is now full. We do hope to run another session but do not have any dates yet. We've had a great response to the offer of training.
The two defibrillators cost a lot of money, we were very lucky to have half funding for both of them from the British Heart Foundation- thank you very much. Please help us keep them safe, encourage others to protect them and reporting any problems to us.

Help us keep Borth safe, clean and tidy.
Dogs are prohibited from the beach area in Borth from the cliffs to the other end of the village by the golf club/Youth hostel between 1st May and 30th September.
Dogs are welcome all year round from the beach by the golf club all the way up to Ynyslas and the National Nature Reserve at Ynyslas.
Dogs should be kept on a lead along the promenade too.
Do please clean up after your dog and use the litter bins provided. Diolch / Thank you
Fly-tipping is the illegal deposit of any waste onto land with no licence to accept it. Only Household Waste Site and Transfer Stations are licensed to accept waste in Ceredigion. Fly-tipping is a serious environmental crime’. The Ceredigion County Council website provides information on what you should do if you discover fly-tipping. Ceredigion Council
If its windy and you put household rubbish and recycling out the night before, please try and tuck it somewhere visible but sheltered (not easy we know) or place a weight on top so that it doesn’t blow around before it’s collected.
Litter bins will continue to be emptied in Borth and Ynyslas during the holiday periods in 2016. Please can we remind all that household waste must not be put in the litter bins.
Please use the bottle bank in the car park, if the bottle bank is full anyone can phone the number on the side of the container. No sheet glass to be left by the bottle bank please.
