Second public defibrillator installed

A second publicly accessible defibrillator has been installed in Checkendon

A second publicly accessible defibrillator has been installed in Checkendon.

The device was donated to the village school by the Millies's Dream appeal soon after the first machine was installed in the redundant BT kiosk at the Parkside end of the village last summer. There were enough funds left in the parish council's defibrillator appeal fund to buy a box to house the device and pay for the installation.

The second machine is fixed to the village hall wall, near the front doors, and is also in a coded box.

The codes can be accessed in an emergency by dialling 999. Pictured with the box at the hall are Sarah Roberts, founder of Millie's Dream, Gillian Seymour, headteacher of Checkendon Primary School, and Sue Todd, school first aid co-ordinator.

In the kiosk is parish councillor Tim Corbishley, who ran the Checkendon Village Appeal last year on behalf of the council
