Sidbury residents are being encouraged to sign up for training to use the village’s new defibrillator.
The Community Heartbeat Trust will be holding an awareness session in the village hall to demonstrate how the equipment works.
John Rush, who led a campaign to raise £2,500 for the defibrillator, is hoping for a good turn out to the training.
John said: “The Community Heartbeat Trust will be demonstrating the use of defibrillators and explaining how the equipment works and its benefits to the community in saving precious minutes in the treatment of cardiac arrest.
“The more people that know how to use the portable defibrillators that are being installed in the area, the more chance there is of saving a life of a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
