The evening for people to come and be familiar with the new defibrillator took place last night with a group of volunteers from within the village. The training was offered by Ian Drury from Volunteer Matters. It was supported by our Ward Councillor Peter Wilkinson and members from various groups that use the facilities at the Memorial Hall.
There were training aids included to help understand what happens when a defibrillator is needed.
The overall response was positive and helped those that took part to be aware that they are capable in the event of an emergency what to assess in that type of situation.
We will add to this by making some videos available for those that could not attend and put some links with videos here on the website
On Thursday 21st June, 2018 there is a defibrillator training session booked for people in the village to have some training on when and how to use a defibrillator.
This is being delivered by a trainer qualified to offer this from a local volunteer centre using both audio and visual aids along with some use of the defibrillator. If you are interested in getting some practice and having the confidence to use one in an emergency LET us know, there are couple of spaces left!
