The new defibrillator has now been installed on the front of the hall, and an awareness session was held on July 14. The defibrillator requires a code to operate and is a useful tool which may help when ambulance attendance is delayed. If someone has a suspected heart attack an ambulance should be called and, if a trained person is available, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation should be started. If someone is willing to help who has received defibrillator training, the ambulance control will give the code for the defibrillator, which can then be obtained and used until paramedics can take over.
New developments are under way at the Beckford Croquet Club. One of our two courts has been levelled and reseeded in a record time of under 2 days. This has been made possible by a club members generous donation. The lawn will be called Margret’s Lawn.
Within just 2 years the club has attracted popular local support and successfully competed in the South West Federation league matches. In 2015 there will be more club sessions and Croquet Association coaching. Further information please call Chris Hague Tel: 01242 621288
