|You may have noticed a new box located on the side of the village shop / parish office building, it’s a defibrillator – use it to save a life when the heart has stopped beating.
Don’t be frightened to use the machine – it will only work if it DOES NOT detect a heartbeat. When the machine starts it will tell you slowly and clearly what to do at each step.
We will hold training sessions periodically and key sites will have a representative trained by November.
Surrey County Council donated some funds and with Frensham Parish Council monies we purchased the first machine. We are hoping to buy more for other areas within the Parish and welcome any donations towards this important piece of kit.
Kate Shipton, Frensham Parish Clerk
