A potentially lifesaving defibrillator has been installed at Wacton Village Hall earlier this month. The East of England Ambulance Service is supporting the East of England Co-operative Society to fit the equipment across East Anglia. Using voice prompts, meaning no one needs to be trained to use the machine, the automated external defibrillator (AED) is a device which restarts the heart. Pictured (from left) are community first responder Alastair Baker, Bob and Jean Tingley, who first suggested the community should get a defibrillator, and Christian Bone of the Co-op. Wacton Parish Council vice chair Pat Reynolds said: “I think it is an excellent thing to have.”
