CROSSFLATTS has a new defibrillator.

The village society received Saturday the automated external defibrillator (AED) of the charity cadre.

It follows months of hard work to raise funds from eggs searching for Easter eggs, great lunchthee parties, selling table, open gardens and more.

The Ryshworth Club Committee has agreed to organize the AED and provide the electricity supply. They chose a suitable location at the front of the building directly under the CCTV of the club to ensure that it was visible but protected.

Anthony Hamilton-Shaw from Cariad handed the AED to electrician Gareth Ward, from Ward Security Integration, who quickly installed a power supply to the heated cabinet, which ensures that if the outdoor temperature drops, the defibrillator is protected.

M. Hamilton-Shaw then provided training at AED as well as how to carry out basic CPR.

After training for the Society & # 39; s Committee, members invited Anthony to offer a training to anyone over eight in the local community who would like to know how to apply CPR and how to use the device can use.

This will take place on Tuesday, September 25 at The Ryshworth Club, Keighley Road, Crossflatts at 6.30pm.

For more information about the training and how you can get involved in society, there is a meeting at the club from 7-8.30 hours.
