New defib for village

by Terry Bearpark

Patrington Parish Council and Patrington Village Hall have announced the addition of another defibrillator (AED) in the village for use of residents in an emergency.

This has been made possible by generous donations by the Withernsea and District Lions Club, the Tower Littlewood Lodge of the RAOB in Withernsea, Patrington AFC and Stuart and Avis Mccoid, who have held quiz events in the hall.

Thanks also go to Dave Turnbull for installing the cabinet on the outside wall of the village hall.

This addition provides a valuable emergency resource to the Church Lane, Greenshaw Lane and Southside areas of the village and extends the coverage of other defibrillators already installed in the village.

To use them in an emergency, dial 999 and ask for the ambulance, giving the location of the device. You will then be given a code to unlock the cabinet enabling you to remove it for use.
