In addition to the installation of the Air Ambulance Night Landing site on Launds Playing Field, the Parish Council has recently purchased an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) which is deployed in the entrance to the Village Hall. In order to make best use of this facility, the Council is providing training for parishioners in the use of the AED and associated resuscitation techniques.
The training will be delivered as a 3-hour training session. In order to be as flexible as possible the Council is running two sessions on Saturday 9th November 2019, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Although priority will be given to parishioners who are willing to be included on a list of tfirst responders, there may be spare places for other people interested in this training. If you are interested in attending either of the training sessions please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
