Anyone reading recent Parish Council minutes will know that we now have a defibrillator installed at the Village Hall (see photos below). The installation costs have been met by South Norfolk Council and the Pits Trust and the running costs (electricity) are being met going forward by the Village Hall. The overall operation is the responsibility of the Parish Council.
For those of you who don’t know, a defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it’s an essential life saving step in the chain of survival.
A training package forms part of the purchase price and a two-hour training course will take place on Thursday 24 January in the afternoon in the Village Hall (exact times to be confirmed). There are 12 places on offer, of which 9 have been filled by volunteers. We are looking for others to fill the remaining places. If you would like to acquire this training and potentially give something back to the village and others, and are free on that date, please contact the Clerk, Carla Petersen, on email@example.com.
