Ukrainian FlagMessage from Winster residents Martin and Deborah Hoffman…

Through a contact of our daughter in London, we are sponsoring a mother and her daughter from Odessa to come and stay with us.

We live in Winster and are wondering if others in Elton are considering hosting. Elton would also be a wonderful haven with its warm and welcoming community.  If the village was able to offer refuge to a number of individuals or families we think it would be helpful and comforting for them to have familiar faces around…

Not everyone will be able to host, but there are plenty of other ways to support both refugees and hosts; for example, cooking a meal, inviting guests for a brew, helping find employment and assisting with official paperwork.

If you are interested to help in any shape or form, please call us on 07785 547819 or email

We’d be very happy to chat and co-ordinate a response from our combined villages.

Community Heartbeat TrustElton Parish Council would like to invite the residents of Elton to a defibrillator demonstration.

The event will take place on Tuesday 19 April at 7pm in Elton Village Hall.

The Community Heartbeat Trust will be demonstrating the use of Elton’s defibrillator. This will include an explanation of how the equipment works and the benefits to the community in saving precious minutes in the treatment of a sudden cardiac arrest.

The more people who know how to use a portable defibrillator, the more chance there is of saving a life.

IMPORTANT – Numbers are limited and you must register to attend.

A maximum of 50 people can attend and it is essential that you register by Tuesday 12 April 2022. Priority will be given to residents of Elton and spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

To register your attendance, please email and give the names of the people who wish to join us. You can also call Colin on 07816 986 956 – but email is preferable.

If spaces are available after Tuesday 12 April, they will be offered to anybody who lives outside the village.

Other info…

There is NO charge for this event. The cost of the session has been covered by Elton Parish Council. If you wish, donations can be given on the night to the Community Heartbeat Trust.

Anybody from Elton can attend. You do not require any special skills, first aid knowledge or previous experience of using a defibrillator.

This will be a busy event and 2-meter social distancing might not be possible. You may wish to consider your personal circumstances before registering to attend. Face coverings will be optional and, where possible, the room will be ventilated.
