Generous parishioners from a Nailsea church have paid to install a new defibrillator in the town.

Members of St Francis Church, in Ash Hayes Road, donated money to pay for the life-saving equipment.

The automated external defibrillator has been put up on the wall outside the church hall.

Angela Reddington from St Francis Church said: “This has been provided for the wider community by the generous donations of St Francis’ parishioners.

“Hopefully it will not be used, but is there if the need arises. Full instructions are given by the ambulance service and are very easily followed.”

Defibrillators work by restoring the heart rhythm if a person goes into cardiac arrest. The earlier it is used the better the chance of survival.

They can be found outside Church House in Silver Street, outside the Break shop in High Street, and in the town’s sports centres.
