Red telephone box: defibrillator operational!

From Cllr Martin Briscombe,

Defibrillator Progress

The Village Defibrillator, sited on the rear of the village Telephone Box is now fully operational. We hope that none of the community will actually need it but it is there in case of an emergency. With electrical installation completed by Maltby Electrical, Coningsby, the Book Exchange & Information Board are also back in use.

Thanks go to the financial support of Millhouse Ltd, Aggregate Industries, & District Councillors Craig Leyland & Suzanna Gorst. Ian Carroll from LIVES will be taking two training sessions in the Parish Church for anyone that would like to know how to use the defibrillator, on Tuesday 17th at 7pm and Wednesday 25th at 7pm. Regards, Martin Continue reading

They could supply everything we needed and the Parish Council had funds available to cover.

March to June was a steady progression of stripping, preparation & painting round the box until all was complete. Fortunately the unmetered electricity supply to the box was still on. So  it only needed new lamps needed for re-illumination. Continue reading
