A defibrillator to help in cardiac arrest is now installed on the church wall in the car park for use by the general public. In the event of an emergency, dial 999, ask for 'Ambulance' and tell them where you are. They will give the code to access the portable machine from its yellow box. Church member Brian Latham has organised the initiative and also arranged for free training by the local ambulance service.
This was held on Sunday 28th June in our community centre. Anyone interested in finding out more are asked to contact Brian on 01296 624964.
