Thanks to voluntary donations and a grant from the Parish Council, I am pleased to confirm that a new Defibrillator and secure cabinet will shortly be installed outside the Village Hall. The package negotiated includes a 3-4 hour practical training workshop on CPR and using the defibrillator.

A date has yet to be set in due course but local organisations including the school, churches and recreational groups who use the Hall are invited to nominate people for this very valuable training. We also plan to provide signage around the village to indicate the locations of the two Defibrillator we now have.

The siting of the Defibrillator cabinet has been chosen for its close proximity to not only the Village Hall, but also the School, Church and the Firehouse.

Should anyone need the use of the Defibrillator then time is critical. For every minute delay in using the equipment, will reduce a persons survival by 10%. Minutes really do save lives!!!

Would you please contact me, by email or telephone, if you wish to nominate people for the training which will be about 3 to 4 hours (see contact details below). Places are limited so we may have to restrict the number of places per organisation.
