Chilton Foliat masthead
Chilton Foliat is an ancient settlement, going back to Saxon times, and beyond.  It is a small village with a current population of just over 300 adults. And it's beautiful, with many ancient houses. You could say it's a typical English country village.

Location in UK The village nestles in the undulating landscape of the Marlborough Downs, lying alongside the River Kennet, a very beautiful and clean chalkland river, much loved by fishermen.

This web site has been created by villagers, for the villagers, and aims to provide visitors and locals alike with information about the village. Any comments on how we can improve the site are always welcome.

Defibrillator - what to do in an emergency

We will be arranging a training session on how to use the defibrillator in the New Year, watch the website and notices for a further update. In the meantime please see the instructions below provided by Community Heartbeat on what to do in an emergency.

1. A 999 call MUST first be undertaken whilst with the patient, DO NOT go to the defibrillator machine first. DO NOT call 111

2. Always ask for AMBULANCE as they know the location of working defibrillators

3. Once a 999 call is received by the Ambulance operators they will ask two questions - is the patient breathing? Is the patient conscious?

4. The operator will then assess the patient's condition and automatically despatch an ambulance to the address of the caller

5. The operator MAY ask if there is a defibrillator nearby, NOTE the operator may say a specific machine is not visible to them because it is flagged as 'out of use' or 'not available'. Ours is located on the west side of the village hall adjacent to the entrance to the pub car park

6. Operator will then tell the caller how to undertake CPR - this is a requirement within 60 seconds of the call

7. If it is determined a defibrillator is required the operator will advise where the nearest active one is - not necessarily the nearest - and advise the activation code.

8. Ensure a second person is available to go to the defibrillator. Once the defibrillator kit is opened a speaker will talk you through what to do

9. If the caller is on their own with the patient you will not be sent to the defibrillator, you should stay and continue CPR

10. The defibrillator must be returned to the box and the box closed after use
