Update 9 Jan 2023: The Defibrillator has re-appeared in its housing on the Hall wall – sans the torch. It is unaffected by its disappearance and is ready for duty.
5 Jan 2023: The Defibrillator (with its mechanical torch) are no longer in the housing attached to the Village Hall wall facing the larger car park. It is the only one in the village and is unavailable for any emergency.
We are assuming that it is has been deployed for use by someone in the village. Which is what it is there for. However it needs to be returned and made ready for service.
The Ambulance Service has not yet replied to a request to confirm its deployment. If you know where it is please contact me or the Parish Clerk so that we can arrange for its reinstatement with new supplies.
