TRAINING sessions on how to use a defibrillator took place in a Fenland village, after sports centre trustees raised enough money to buy the life-saving device.
Wisbech St Mary is one of the first villages in the area to buy a defibrillator for community use.
It was paid for after fundraising by trustees of Wisbech St Mary Sports and Community Centre, with assistance from Wisbech St Mary Parish Council.
After the device was purchased 16 volunteers from the village were trained on how to use it. The session also looked at assessing situations and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

The training was carried out by Deborah Slator and her team from UK First Aid, which also supplied the equipment.
Additional funds to pay for training costs were provided by the Poors Allotment Charity.
