Defibrillator

The defibrillator is now installed in the telephone box on the village green and is available for use in case of an emergency.  Two training courses for villagers were held in February and March which covered the topic of actions to take in event of a sudden cardiac arrest and included the use of a defibrillator.  A further course can be run in September or October, provided we have enough people who wish to attend.
