How we began!
The need for a CFR scheme in Ettington was highlighted following an advert by West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) on local radio in 2008 which was heard by one of the founding team members. She contacted the WMAS CFR Coordinator and, after about a year of preparation and fund-raising, the Ettington CFR Scheme launched on 1st June 2009.
We have a number of operational First Responders and other non-responding members who provide vital fundraising and scheme-management support (such as our Treasurer and Secretary). Currently (February 2010), we have five First Responders based in three different villages with two more undergoing training

Do we cover your area?
The team covers the following villages, and surrounding areas, South-East of Stratford-upon-Avon in South Warwickshire:
Alderminster, Armscote, Crimscote, Ettington, Fulready, Halford, Newbold-on-Stour, Pillerton Hersey, Pillerton Priors, Tredington. Collectively, this is known as the 'Stourdene' region as the villages are all close to the River Stour and River Dene. In addition to providing cover in these primary areas, we provide occasional support for our colleagues in neighbouring CFR teams in villages such as Kineton, Ilmington, Oxhill and Shipston-on-Stour. At times of exceptional demand, we have also supported the ambulance service in Stratford-upon-Avon.
