NEWS : Midgham is proud to have a DEFIBRILATOR sited at the end of Birds Lane.

Thanks to a great team effort from the Parish Councillors, the generosity of a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous and also thanks to Mr Tom Porteous for providing the power to the unit, Midgham now boasts its own defibrillator. Whilst we all hope it will never be needed, it gives peace of mind to residents of the village knowing it’s there just in case.


Midgham Parish Council currently has NO vacancies for a Parish Councillor, but we are always keen to hear from you if you are interested. For more information, please contact the Clerk (clerk@midghamparish.co.uk).
