Defibrillator arrives in The Firs park in Bury St Edmunds
The arrival of a new defibrillator was celebrated on Wednesday with a tea party and raffle with prizes from Glasswells and Dobbies.
The equipment, which can help to save a life of a person in cardiac arrest, has been placed on The Firs residential park, in Bury St Edmunds.
A tea party was held to thank residents for their support as well as Cllrs Patrick Chung and Anne Williamson who also attended, as they had donated money towards the defibrillator.
Jean Brown, chair of the residents’ association, said: “It went really well, we were very pleased. We had lots of support, a lot of our neighbours came out.”
The town rickshaw also attended the event and offered rides to residents.
Jean added: “It was definitely needed. We have over 70 residents all over the age of 55, we have lots of carers that come on to the park and relatives come.”
