River Festival 2018

The ‘Hope we Float’ team from The Polhill Arms, took part in the Raft Race at Bedford River Festival. 


Our Village Defibrillator

In June 2015 the emergency defibrillator was fitted at The Polhill Arms following fundraising efforts by Paul and Lindsey who organised the fund raising in order to purchase and fit the device. Across the village there are eight residents who are trained to use the defibrillator. However in the event of an emergency, the code can be given out by the 999 operator at ambulance control who will talk the user through what to do.
