Belford Community First Responders

Belford Community First Responders was formed some years ago to be a group of first responders providing support to the ambulance service to help the people of Belford. Over the years volunteers have come and gone and there is now only one volunteer who still responds occasionally.
The money which was held by the group was mainly donated by Dr Pawson who had funds for community related first aid activities. This money was used for a new defib for the group and then later a cPad defib for the village (now located at Bell View). Some funds were used for some of the responders' running costs.
NEAS now provide most of the resources needed for responding so all remaining funds in the responder account have been passed to Paul Harrison at the Bell View. He will now ensure that the cPad is maintained for the foreseeable future. He will also use some of the funds to train his volunteers - particularly his drivers - in first aid. With only one responder left who doesn't tend to be on duty very much (due to work commitments) there is a need for further recruitment of volunteers. Anyone who is interested can contact the ambulance service via Paul Brolly at the Community Resus. Team

Belford Community Group.

Belford Community Group. At our AGM Lord Walton stepped down as president after many years of excellent leadership and support. The Group and the village has benefitted greatly by his contribution and wise guidance. William McLaren is the new president and the Reverend Denise Hiscox is vice president. Our accounts were presented and accepted. They are on the village website and copies in the Community Shop.
Anyone wishing for more detail please contact the Group at

VJ Weekend

Belford is once again on the map as a leader. Our recent weekend has been nationally recognised for its success. The contribution made by the "Belford Lads" has been honoured in our museum and a most moving service in St. Mary's church. DVDs of the service are available in the Community Shop at £2 per copy. Thanks to all who contributed to this tribute to the Far East Prisoners of War (The Forgotten Army). So much material has come forward that the exhibition remains open in the snooker room (thanks to Robin and Ruth Williamson for this kind gesture). This will remain until September 13th. Do go along and
see what our lads did for our freedom today. Eric and Fiona intend to publish a book encapsulating the material from these brave souls and their families.
