It has been proposed that a defibrillator be obtained for the village. The suggestion is that it be kept in the telephone box as a central location.
The Parish Council is looking into potential costs and funding sources but it would be likely that the village would need to fundraise for at least part of the purchase, set-up and running costs. £2,000 is the cost of an entry-level machine via St John’s Ambulance. We would also need to do some work to the telephone box to install the defibrillator and it would need to be checked or serviced regularly. There could also be the cost of the electrical supply.
The Parish Council would like to gather feedback, so could we ask you to please email us and let us know what you think.
