Defibrillator - Oscroft March 2017

The defibrillator, donated the British Heart Foundation, was installed into the redundant payphone box located on the Green on Cross Lanes Oscroft on Friday, 3rd March. The payphone box had previously been 'adopted' from BT Payphones by the Parish Council. The installation was carried out by Bob Gregory of 101 Electrical. He generously made no charge for his time and expertise.

One requirement of British Heart Foundation is a commitment from members of the local community to undertake CPR and defibrillator training. So far more than 20 Oscroft residents have volunteered to attend an initial training session given by the North West Ambulance Service at Priors Hayes Golf Club on Sunday, 2nd April at 10.00am. It is proposed that further training sessions will take place in the near future.

Ed: Tarvin Parish now has three defibrillators. In addition to the Oscroft one, there is one in the High Street and one at the Community Centre.
