Defibrillator

A defibrillator has been installed outside the village hall. This short video (7 minutes) provides an introduction to how it can be used.

In an emergency, 999 Emergency Services must be called in first instance. They will provide full advice and guidance.


Os-Gen

Originally created in the early 2000s as a paper booklet for the benefit of those recently embraced into the bosom of our small community, it’s far from comprehensive and only one of many sources of information. If all else fails and you can’t find what you’re looking for just ask around!


Oswaldkirk – A living village

This is the title of Oswaldkirk’s history book, published to worthy fanfare in 2002 and updated in early 2012 (copies are available for £5 each). A copy of the original version, if you don’t already have one, is available to peruse in the Parish Archive, along with early photographs and many other items of historical interest. It is currently located at Ledbrooke House. If you wish to consult the archive to learn more about the village and  its history, contact David Goodman on 788401.

To this day, Oswaldkirk truly is a living village, with many people actively involved in helping to generate a genuine community spirit. There are enough village events and cheery waves and conversations to make everyone feel very welcome. It is hoped that you too, will feel part of the community, however long you live here.
