May News – Monckton gets a new Defib !

The old 24/7 Heart Defibrillator (AED) at the Monckton has now been replaced with a new one. This was the second one to be installed in the village and actually saved a life within a week of being installed! Although we hope it is never needed, it is the type that can easily be reset to make it usable on younger children, especially important with the expansion of facilities at the sports centre.

Although P&DCFRs continue to need to raise funds for our normal operational running, this new AED is thanks to some dedicated funding from the estate of a former resident, Betty Hartshorne.
