From children to adults the talk will show that it is child’s play to save a life with the revolutionary kit.

Already local Brownies have learnt how to use the kit and an invite has gone out to community groups to book a talk to make sure as many people as possible in town know how to use the kit.

Councillor Rob Skoulding, who set up the Have A Heart charity in memory of his late father, said; “It is really easy learning how to use these kits but we are aware some people are worried about how to do it which is why we are setting up a series of talks.

“The kits wont operate if the person has a heart that is beating normally so you can’t do any harm with them.

“This talk is open to anybody but also we would like to invite any community groups interested in learning how to use defibrillators to get in touch and we can arrange a talk.”

The talk is on Sunday June 19 at 7pm at St Wendredas Church by electrician and fireman Matt Brown.
