UPDATED: Village Defibrillator moves a step closer

The installation of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED), moved a step closer following the initial fact finding meeting at the Village Hall on Thursday.

Mr Martin Fagan of The Community Heartbeat Trust, gave a demonstration of the types of community defibrillator best suited to a village such as Barnby and which more importantly, don’t require specialist training to be used.  The demonstration was well received and Mr Fagan went on to answer the many queries raised regarding use, installation, costs and funding.  The majority of those in attendance agreed that a managed solution such as the one provided by The Community Heartbeat Trust, appeared to be the preferred way forward.  The Parish Council will now seek further information regarding full costs and possible site locations.
