Milborne Port Women’s Institute have worked to organise, fund and purchase THREE Portable Automatic Defibrillators, all of which are installed at key locations in the Village and are available NOW to be used in the event of a serious life threatening emergency.
The units, which are all available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, are installed at the Town Hall, the Doctors Surgery in Gainsborough, and the Village Hall in Springfield Road.
To support the availability of these devices, the WI have also organised a course so that Villagers can be taught (or reminded) how and when to do CPR and to have the opportunity for hands on use of a defibrillator.
The course, which is being held in the Milborne Port Village Hall, Springfield Road, Milborne Port, DT9 5RE, is on Saturday 18th September 2021 and starts at 9.30am. The course will finish by 12.30pm. The course is free, but pre-booking is essential! Refreshments provided. For more information and/or to book a place on this important life saving course, please ring Lyn on 07480 143678
