April News – South Staffs Sailing Club goes Public !

South Staffordshire Sailing Club have had an AED inside the clubhouse for several years – and this has already saved a life of a member who fell ill while out sailing on the reservoir.

Thank you to the Sailing Club committee and members for now making this publicly accessible 24/7.
They agreed to provide the electricity costs for heating the cabinet which was provided by the First Responders and funded from the Betty Hartshorne legacy.

This now means the life-saving equipment is available to members, visitors, fishermen and walkers in the area at all times even when the club premises are closed.
