Thanks to the generosity of residents and a grant from the British Heart Foundation, a defibrillator is now in place at the Old School Hall in Alverstone and is ready to be used, if required, 24 hours a day.
The device is located in a widely-recognisable yellow box on the outside wall of the old school building, which is only a short distance from the popular cycle track that passes through the village.
Linda Maclennan, whose husband died following a cardiac arrest back in August 2019, has said:
“Inspired by the death of my wonderful husband, Iain Ross Maclennan, a defibrillator has now been installed at Alverstone Old School Hall!
“Everyone is very proud and relieved to see the defibrillator in place”.
Thanks has gone to Gail Scott and Henry Trotman, as well as Matt the electrician who gave his time to install the device safely.
