Husborne Crawley is a small parish within Central Bedfordshire with a total population of about 200. Much of the village is a conservation area and many of the buildings are listed.
It has a beautiful 13th Century Church, a highly successful Lower School, a much loved pub, "The White Horse" and a newly-refurbished, well used village hall, called "The Reading Room".
The Parish Council consists of seven full members supported by a stipendiary Clerk. Meetings are open to all residents.
Husborne Crawley Lower School recently raised funding for a defibrillator. This is now up and running for emergency use for anyone in need of it not just for the school children. It is situated on the outside of the school near the big porch. When ringing 999, the caller will be notified where the machine is and the user will be given a code which unlocks the machine then the machine itself talks the user through the procedure. The ambulance service will have been advised automatically and will arrive as soon as possible to assess the situation.
