Defibrillator The Public Access Thanks to all who have supported the effort to get it here. Don’t forget fundraising goes on to obtain a second one for elsewhere in the parish.

South Western Ambulance Service is offering free annual defib awareness training to all the local community to be held in January 2020 at the Parish Hall (date TBA). The session normally takes between 1-1.5hrs.

We are also looking for a volunteer to carry out monthly checks on the defibrillator.
