Defibrillator Launch

Saturday 14 April 2018 saw the launch of the recently installed defibrillator outside Waitrose. The actor Peter Bowles led the launch, with Air Cadets from 39F Squadron Barnes demonstrating CPR, on dummies beside the machine. The initiative for the project came from the East Sheen Baptist Church but was spearheaded by member Peter Hames.Free training is available for anyone wishing to learn how to administer CPR.

Waitrose have given solid support to the project by supplying the site, the installation and even some staff to run the CPR sessions.
