This is the first of what is planned to be a number of units installed across Hilperton through an initiative by Hilperton Parish Council.
Councillor Ernie Clark, Chairman of Hilperton Parish Council, said : “This is a great project from Hilperton Parish Council, with several more defib units due to be installed in the village. I hope that no one ever has to use it, but it is there if needed. The Parish Council is grateful to the village hall for agreeing to house the unit.”
Tim Davies, Chair of Hilperton Village Hall, said "We are pleased to be hosting the defibrillator. As Ernie says, we all hope it won’t need to be used - but having a public access defibrillator available in an emergency can be life saving.”
