We are very lucky to have three Defibrillators to use in the case of a medical emergency. One is secured to the wall of the Pavilion at Carr Bridge playing field which is at the side of the BP garage opposite the doctors. The machine is positioned next the the entry door on the right in a big yellow box. A further one is attached to the wall at the entrance of the Bell Lane Parish Council Community Centre. The final one is in Low Ackworth affixed to the wall at the front of Hinitt’s Bakery. To be able to use either you need to call 999 and you will be given you a code to unlock the box so the machine can be used. The operator will be able to talk you through how to use it.
