Defib training

Villagers in Alvechurch, Lickey and Blackwell have been receiving training on the use of new community public access defibrillators.

The one at Alvechurch Village Hall was donated by West Midlands Ambulance Service, with the cabinet bought with a grant from former Bromsgrove District Councillor Pat Harrison.

Lickey & Blackwell Parish Council has installed three defibrillators around the parish: one at the Trinity Centre, Lickey, one at the telephone box at Marlbrook (doubling as a book exchange) and the third due at Blackwell Club.

The defibrillators give clear spoken instructions and you don’t need training to use one. More information from Natalie Wise at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
