DEFIBRILLATOR in WRENINGHAM

As many Ashwellthorpe and Fundenhall people visit Wreningham Village Hall from time to time, you’ll all be interested to know that a new automated external defibrillator has now been fitted at this Hall.

This device, which can play a vital role in saving people’s lives and works by detecting an abnormal heart rhythm and then sending an electric shock to restore a normal one, is now fixed to the wall of Wreningham Village Hall in Mill Lane,  next to its car park.
