Lives will be saved thanks to the installation of lifesaving equipment in the heart of a village.

A new defibrillator has been installed outside the community–run shop in Winster, meaning people who suffer a heart attack can get emergency treatment while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.

The equipment was purchased following months of community fundraising activities with grants from the British Heart Foundation and Winster charities .
