The Parish Council was pleased to be granted funding for two ‘public use’ defibrillators to be installed in Bradwell (one on the outside of the Leo Coles Pavilion building on Green Lane Playing Field, one on the outside of the Mill Lane Centre building), from the ward budgets of Borough Councillors Sue Hacon, Jamie Smith and Hilary Wainwright.

These are kept ‘key code’ locked, and the idea is, if someone in such an emergency dials 999 for the Ambulance Service, the Service will direct them to where the defibrillator is, and give them the key code. The defibrillator itself contains a digital facility which gives the user step-by-step instructions for its use.

There are also public use defibrillators outside Bradwell Post Office, outside the Phoenix Pool, and outside the Sun Inn.
