St Swithin Church is located on Church Road in Quenington (GL7 5BN). It is a Grade 1 Listed building and if particular interest are the two 12th Century doorways.

A defibrillator is installed on the outside of Quenington Village Hall on The Green.

The defibrillator has been designed to be used by the public as it talks you through the process. There are however several trained volunteers in Quenington and they can be contacted via the Village Emergency Telephone System. This will automatically ring all the trained volunteers at the same time. The first to answer will respond to the emergency.

The Emergency telephone number is 01285 610210. PLEASE USE THIS NUMBER FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS ONLY AND ALWAYS RING 999 FIRST.

The defibrillator, cabinet and emergency phone number have all been bought from funds raised through the 2013 Quenington Village Fete. Thank you to the Fete committee and all who attended the fete for providing this important emergency facility.

Quenington Village Hall is situated on The Green in Quenington. It was extensively refurbished in 2013 and is available to hire for a range of functions. Further details are available on the Village Hall pages.
