Additional defibrillator in Cherhill

Cherhill Parish Council have installed a second defibrillator in Cherhill thanks to villagers’ very generous donations in Cherhill and Yatesbury and to a partial grant from Wiltshire Council Calne Area Board.  The new Cherhill defibrillator is located at the Cherhill School entrance on Middle Lane. This is an additional defibrillator to that at Cherhill Village Hall, giving emergency coverage nearer to the west of Cherhill.

 A defibrillator has also been installed in the old phone box at the Lymers in Yatesbury.  Both defibrillators are operational and registered with the South West Ambulance Service.  They are regularly checked and their operational state is reported to the Service.

In April or May there will be Cardiac Response Seminars in Cherhill and in Yatesbury given by the Community Heartbeat Trust who supplied the defibrillators.  The seminars will be open to all who are interested in how the defibrillator works and its benefit to the community in saving precious minutes in the treatment of cardiac arrest.
