The club is now in possession of a defibrillator, donated by the West Midlands Ambulance Service and around a dozen members have been trained in its use. Thanks to Fiona Hammond, Irene Wood and other members of the whist club for the original idea and to Ray Drew and his son in law Paul Passant for setting the wheels in motion.

Congratulations Irene!
