Learn to save lives

A TRAINING session will take place in Peppard to teach residents how to use the village’s new defibrillator.

Richard Tracey, South Central Ambulance Service manager, will lead the 90-minute session, which will include a talk and practice using a dummy.

It will be held in the sports pavilion in Stoke Row Road on Saturday, September 13. Peppard Parish Council will provide refreshments.

The session is free to attend but there will be a collection for the League of Friends charity to fund more defibrillators in the Thames Valley.

The defibrillator was installed in an old red telephone box in Church Lane by Millie’s Dream, a charity appeal run by a mother from Henley which raised more than £15,000 to fit the devices in 10 local schools.
