Defibrillator demonstration seminar : 7 July

Katie Cawston and the team of volunteers that look after our community defibrillator have arranged a demonstration by the Community Heartbeat Trust on Thursday 7 July at 7:30pm in the Village Hall. The event is expected to last an hour or so.

No special skills are needed. The more people (adults and teenagers!!!) that are aware of this lifesaving piece of equipment the more chance we have of saving lives in our community.
