From the Neighbourhood Watch coordinator, here is a sign for your door should you wish to deter unwanted callers.

If you know of a vulnerable person who does not have internet access  but would like a sign let the clerk know as the NW coordinator has a limited supply of these signs and I will pass the message on

Local Defibrillator

An image of a debrillator

A fully Automated External Defibrillator (AED) accessible 24/7 is located at the entrance to the Manger pub in Bradfield Combust.  On calling 999 to report a suspected heart attack the East of England Ambulance Service will almost certainly prompt you to send for the AED if possible and give you the 4 digit code to access the secure AED cabinet.  The Manger staff also hold the code of course.

The AED (Zoll AED 3) is extremely easy to use and once switched on will provide simple and clear audio instructions and visual cues; the smart AED (NOT the operator) assesses the patient and initiates any necessary shock.
