Lerryn WI in conjunction with FLEET – Front Line Emergency Equipment Trust – installed the Village’s defibrillator outside the Ship Inn at Lerryn. The WI felt that a defibrillator would be an ideal project to sponsor and Ronni Collins, the Landlady of the Ship Inn, was more than happy to offer the wall of the pub which bears the slogan “ the Pub is the Hub” increasing the number of community projects the Ship is involved in. Local electrician Phil James worked with FLEET’s Norman Trebilcock to get the machine installed and working before the May half term holiday. Nina Bacon and Sheila Tyacke coordinated the project and were thrilled when it was completed in time for the busy week. “I hope we never have to use it” said Nina “but if it helps just one person then it has to be worth its weight in gold”.
Norman will be holding a demonstration / CPR night and a question and answer session in the Ship Inn on Thursday 11th June at 7.30pm.
All are welcome - come and find out about the defibrillator and its champions (those who have agreed to support anyone needing to use the machine).
