The Parish Council would like to raise enough money to buy one or more defibrillators to be located within the village for use in an emergency. Each defibrillator, including the cabinet that it would be housed in, costs approximately £1400. In the event of somebody having a cardiac arrest, a member of the public would dial 999 and be told where the nearest defibrillator is and the code number needed to gain access to the machine. These can be used by anybody, as the machine tells you what to do and the operator would stay on the phone to assist you if needed while an emergency vehicle is on its way to you.
In order to raise sufficient funds to purchase this equipment we will require contributions from residents and village organisations towards the cost. Donations, or pledges, can be made either personally at the Parish Council office or by email [email protected]. We would also welcome comments and suggestions of suitable places within the village, and ideas for fundraising,
