Latest The ResuscitUs CPR and Defibrillator Know How session in the Dunn Village Hall, at 6.00pm on 19th May is rapidly filling up, but of you contact them now you may still be able to attend.

The first ResuscitUs Know How session, on April 28th at Bodle Street Green, was very well attended. After a short presentation by Tim Fellows (Clinical Operations manager, South East Coast Ambulance Service) participants were shown, by members of the Heathfield First Responders Group, how to do CPR and how to use a defibrillator. From the feedback collected afterwards it was clear that the session had been very successful in making people feel much more confident about being able to take action, should a sudden cardiac arrest occur. The cabinet is already fitted outside the white horse pub and the defibrillator arrives soon. The local ResuscitUs campaign has also successfully raised money for a Publicly Accessible Defibrillator (PAD) outside Osborne House. Funding for the defibrillator came from Warbleton Parish Council, Wealden District Council community dividend and generous donations from many local residents. If you would like to make a donation its not too late - just email Nigel McKeeman via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
