A group of volunteers have been given lifesaving training after having a defibrillator installed at their village hall.

Trustees of the Garstang charity ADAM Appeal has presented Cabus Village Hall with the defibrillator after fundraising efforts by the parish council and other user groups.

James Mullin, on behalf of the charity, handed over the equipment to Marian Eastwood a member of the Cabus Village Hall Committee.

Members of the Council together with the village hall Committee and first-aid volunteers attended the presentation.

Rob Knowles, the chairman of the Cabus Village Hall Committee, said: “The rapid raising of the funds to secure the device and the enthusiasm displayed for this project was an excellent example of the community spirit in Cabus.”

The ADAM appeal was set-up in late 2012 and has since helped provide defibrillators and first aid training to a number of community groups across Garstang and the wider area. Peter Bond of the Red Cross was invited to Cabus Village Hall to carry out the training of 15 volunteers in techniques of resuscitation and the use of the defibrillator.

A further training day for use of the defib will take place at a later date. Anyone interested in the course can call 01995 605608.
