We are planning to approach local businesses to see if they will help towards the £2K costs of the defibrillator and training; we may also invite villagers to do the same.
We will update you all at the meeting on Tues 26th April as to how we propose to move forward with this.
This is the letter we will be putting to Businesses in the local area:
Honingham Parish Council
14th April 2016
Honingham Village Defibrillator
Dear Sir or Madam
The parish council along with members of Honingham village would like to buy a defibrillator. As I am sure you are aware, Defibrillation is a process in which an electronic device (defibrillator) sends an electric shock to the heart to stop an extremely rapid, irregular heartbeat, and restore the normal heart rhythm. Therefore, being a lifesaving piece of equipment.
As you will appreciate everybody could potentially benefit for having a defibrillator near and handy. It is proposed that the defibrillator will be centrally and conveniently located either in the phone box or on the outside wall of the pub.
In total we will require around £2000 to purchase a good Defibrillator, training for the use and maintenance of the defibrillator will be organized by the parish council. We would be grateful if the businesses and parishioners in the parish of Honingham could see fit to make a donation towards the cost.
If you would like to donate, please make cheques payable to Honingham Parish Council, donations to be sent to
Mr David Bishop
Chairman Honingham Parish Council
