New Defibrillator

We are pleased to report that the defibrillator has been installed outside the Parish Hall and the PC is very grateful to the Stephen Carey Fund who have helped sponsor this equipment.

The Stephen Carey Fund is a charity set up to help provide emergency first aid training and equipment throughout Northumberland, in memory of a young footballer who died.  The equipment is extremely simple to use but before installation the charity will run free community training sessions on CPR and the use of a defibrillator.

This training will be held on Sunday 22nd February at 2pm in the Parish Hall – all are welcome.
