A PIECE of life-saving equipment has been installed at Clevedon Golf Club.

The defibrillator has been donated by Great Western Ambulance Service after a request from The Rotary Club of Clevedon.

It can be used on a patient when suffering a cardiac arrest and gives the heart an electric shock.

Staff at the Castle Road club have been trained how to use it by Chris Parsons of Nailsea-based South West Medical Services.

Now, the rotary club plans to fund more defibrillators to be installed in other areas of Clevedon.
