New defibrillator installed and unveiled in Stanton village




A new defibrillator was unveiled in Stanton village on Tuesday.

The life-saving piece of equipment is the third instalment to Stanton and was funded by the parish council. It is situated outside of George Hill Vets in Chare Road.

Francis Hart, chairman of the parish council, said: “We have two in the main part of the village but we were conscious if there was an incident on the north side of the A143, it would be difficult to get to the defibrillator on the other side of the road.”

The council is also looking to hold extra training sessions to help people feel more comfortable and confident with using a defibrillator. A defibrillator costs around £2,000.

“This is a subject which is dear to my heart, all councillors are very supportive,” Cllr Hart said.
