We are extremely grateful

There will be future fundraising events (yes,
we DO still require funds, mainly for training) yet to be decided. The

You will all be pleased to
hear, that the long wait is over.
Planning permission for the installation of the AED storage box on the
wall of the Village Hall was granted on 20th July and the cabinet was
installed on the right-hand-side of the Village Hall on 28th.
At the moment we have a defibrillator on loan until the one
have ordered (the Medtronic Lifepak CR Plus Fully Automatic AED)
arrives. The AED is now fully operational, and the
arrangements with the Ambulance Service have been put into
action. to ensure the code is available to anyone dialing 999.
Plans are in hand to run further training courses. We are waiting for
dates from the instructor, but probably some time in August, so if
you’d like to learn how to use the machine, and
already put your name down, please let John Wilkinson know on 470773..
